interesting amazing place within palace grounds

We felt it was worth buying the ticket which allowed entry to the full cathedral not the South tower though.

Went into the church as part of our visit to the Castle district. Immense church near the entrance to the castle. Dramatic style need to buy a ticket to go into the main part of the church.

The lines can get a bit long but it's well worth the trip. I would suggest getting the headphones and soak in all you can.

Prague Castle (which surrounds the cathedral) is nice, but St. Vitus is the star. It is extremely ornate and historic. It feels almost other-worldly due to it's age and excellent upkeep. Highly recommended.

One of the major cathedrals of Europe, this building is a twin to the Stephan cathedral in Vienna and one of the epitomes of German-Austrian medieval architecture. A must on your visit in Prague, though climbing the castle hill is tough.

We visited the Prague Castle as part of our group tour. You can see the castle from a distance elsewhere in the city but don't appreciate its enormous size until you get close. It was tough getting the whole thing in the frame when taking pictures. A couple of wedding parties were there. Nice views of the city. The guards... More

One of the most spectacular cathedrals I have seen. The sheer majesty of it takes your breath away. It is worth visiting with a guide as the history is very interesting. Certainly a highlight of visiting Prague.

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. Walking up the hill or stairs to Prague Castle, the historical seat of Czech rulers and the majestic Saint Vitus Cathedral can leave you speechless (and out of breath). Luckily, plenty of terrace cafés overlooking gardens and beautiful parks are available to provide rest and a place to catch your breath again.
