This church is pretty spectacular if you like really ornate churches. It is one of the most recognizable images of Prague, so it's definitely worth a trip.

The ornate gothic exterior is amazing, and so is the beautiful interior. Be sure to admire the stained glass windows, especially the Art Nouveau one by Mucha. Do not miss the St. Wenceslas Chapel.

We visited St. Vitus on a recent trip to Prague. I highly recommend paying for the headphones for the castle tour as it admits you to St. Vitus and you learn so much about this beautiful cathedral. This is a must see when in Prague!

Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history.
