It's very vibrant & rich in history. The stain glass windows are simply amazing! Brace yourself if you want to see the interior of the cathedral as you will be greeted by massive never ending queues. Once inside it's highly recommended to use their audio tour so that you can hear the narrated stories and see the cathedral.

Saint Vitus cathedral is the main church of Prague Castle and Prague in general. Medieval gothic and neogothis of 19th century architecture, offcial burial site of Czech dukes and kings and Prague archbishops. Pity that just the part closest to the entrance is free of charge.

Beautiful quaint architecture! This is a main attraction in this area. You can never miss this place. Not too crowded as I expect. Everything is amazing, the architecture itself can tell the history of Prague very well.

St. Vitus Cathedral is an excellent example of Gothic architecture. It is the most important and biggest church in the country. This is located within the Prague Castle and thus owned by the Czech Government. There is always a long line to enter the cathedral but guests will all have the chance to go inside the premises. Definitely a must-visit... More

in a High season, we can just forget it as the queue is very long in tickets or entering this church. We come in middle February and still the queue very long and also bit crowded, imagine what is in Summer will be. This seems main attraction in this area when you don't want to bother with queuing and paying... More

A breath taking cathedral. The impact when you see it takes your breath away. You can go inside and view from a viewing area but I would highly recommend buying the full tour ticket to walk round the cathedral and see the stunning architecture. The stain glass windows are beautiful and when the light hits them the colours just burst... More

A blend of amazing architecture and history. This one of the most beautiful churches, i have ever visited. during the day it looks black outside and in the evening when lights turn on, the entire building shines like silver. Inside it is very grand and peaceful. Out side the church, there are lot of things to do for tourists like... More

Staying in Hradcany & Letna

Neighbourhood Profile
Hradcany & Letna
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.
