St. George's Basilica, Prague

#20 of 177 in Museums in Prague
Find out more about Bohemian Gothic, Rudolphian, Baroque art at St. George's Basilica. Prince Vratislav I founded the church in the tenth century, but the facade you see is the result of the early Baroque reconstruction. Inside the austere and monumental interior of the basilica, notice the walls, which were rebuilt in Romanesque fashion, and the high ceilings made of a deep, dark wood. Decorative windows provide atmospheric lighting--an ideal setting for the occasional classical music concerts held here. Head to the main nave to see the tombs of the members of the Premyslid dynasty of princes. Visit the adjacent Gothic chapel to look at the tomb of St. Ludmila, the widow of the ninth-century ruler Prince Borivoj.

  • Small Romanesque-style church preserved within the castle area. Very essential as in his style, but extremely charming and with some relic within it.

  • the exterior façade looks very simple next to the Cathedral but it has its charm. Inside, beautiful frescoes but this waiting to the tail to access it is not pleasant. On leaving, do not forget to admire the back of the Basilica also very beautiful. Worth a peek. Too bad there are so many people

  • One of the best places to visit in Prague. It's on top of a hill over looking at the city. If you like good view of the city you should go up there. The place is always buzzing with people, so be prepared. The security checks are bit tedious but it's necessary to keep things Clam and safe. There are tickets to enter entire, places get them it's worth it. Don't bother eating anywhere inside or near it because it's expensive and just a novelty. Hot wine will be served try it it'll keep you warm Good place to be warm and pass the time if the bus is delayed or canceled. Visit the supermarket and get something to drink or eat, even shop a bit from one of their many outlets. But it's always crowded, if you're like me and not like crowded places, avoid going on weekends especially in the evenings.
