A beautiful piece of architecture, well worth the visit. Surrounded now by the castle complex, it is still head and shoulders above the rest. Look out for the gargoyles around the outside, also the magnificent windows, and the mosaic over the door.

This place has a long heritage. Please have at least 4 hours of your time. Make sure to go before sunset.

A very popular place with amazing stained glass windows. The flying buttresses and gargoyles are worth a photo.

I found this Cathedral so incredibly beautiful, I can't wait to go back. Really worth the visit. I was just there with a friend, with no guide book or real understanding of the history,....just being in there was great.

St. Vitus is definitely worth the visit, like the Prague Castle you should arrive early for less tourists.

Wow! Lead glass windows....unbelievable. Steeped in history, you need to see it to believe it. Pay a little extra to go right into the cathedral, not just the entrance. Buy a "B" ticket and see the castle as well. Great value. Needs a good 4...More

Your experience in Prague will never be complete if
you do not see it from the top. Hillsides, stretched
from the west to the north, provide spectacular views
of greenish copper cupolas, narrow cobblestone
streets, bridges connecting both river banks and green
gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses.
Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history.
