A beautiful baroque church that is splendidly decorated and would be interesting for those who like to see Christian churches. The entrance is paid. There is a high tower with a panoramic view. In front of the entrance is the Plague Column - a symbol of gratitude for the end of the Black Plague.

There are many pretty things to see here, notably the stunning shocks of gold in the decor throughout. Fans of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart may want to pilgrimage here since this was the cathedral that hosted the first remembrance concert following his death and the site of the first hearing of part of his justifiably famous "Requiem." Still the building is... More

Magnificent cathedral with the most stunning color composition of salmon pink and various shades of green. The shape of the pulpit, the sun light that comes to the church, mysteries of obscure corners ... One has to experience this when visiting Prague.

I am sure this is worth a visit still but the main attraction in the centre of the church is currently full of scaffold and it does spoil the effect. You also have to pay to get in. We stumbled across St. Thomas's church round the corner and in my opinion it is a much prettier church and its free... More

This is an incredible cathedral in Prague. We happened to visit on a Sunday and were able to witness the Catholic Mass. We are not Catholic, but my wife says that it is one of the most memorable visits on our trip to Europe. I would highly recommend visiting this site.

This is a lovely cathedral and not to be missed. But being restored at the moment so the full beauty of te Baroque interior cannot be appreciated. Still very worth a visit.

Staying in Mala Strana (Little Quarter)

Neighbourhood Profile
Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighbourhoods in the city. Nestled underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the Kings route taken by future kings on their way to coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral. Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighbourhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighbourhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.
