Katedrala Svateho Vita, Prague

Prague's finest example of Gothic architecture, Katedrala Svateho Vita is the resting place of many saints, kings, princes, and archbishops. Located within the city's World Heritage-listed castle complex, the cathedral notably contains 14th-century mosaics and stained glass by artist Alfons Mucha. The biggest and most ornate of the cathedral's many side chapels features medieval frescoes depicting scenes from the life of Christ, as well as a hidden staircase leading to a chamber housing priceless Bohemian crown jewels. You may not be able to see the real jewels, which are famously protected by seven locks, but you can reward yourself with panoramic views of the city from the cathedral's south tower.

  • Words are not, it is necessary to see. Grandiose construction, flight of human thought. Gratitude to the country that was able to preserve for us this splendor.

  • The activity is entertaining and you learn a lot about the history of Prague, the castle, Karluv Most and the cathedal of San Vito form a set that you can not miss, Santi taught us and we liked it very much.

  • One of your stops while in the Prague Castle area! You can enter for free but to see the whole place a ticket is needed. Beautiful Cathedral, adds up to the magnificent area. Wiki; This cathedral is a prominent example of Gothic architecture and is the largest and most important church in the country. Located within Prague Castle and containing the tombs of many Bohemian kings and Holy Roman Emperors, the cathedral is under the ownership of the Czech government as part of the Prague Castle complex.
  • My husband and I we visit this Cathedral inside the castle, it's worth every penny of the money you spend on the entrance free. Make sure you have comfortable shoes because you will be walking a lot it's a lot to see, and take plenty of time so you can see it all you will need at least 5 hours. Just be aware that when you buy your ticket and they tell you that will includes everything it's not true you still have to pay to go to the tower and to go to the museum. If you want to enter to those it will be extra.
