Prague's finest example of Gothic architecture, St. Vitus Cathedral is the resting place of many saints, kings, princes, and archbishops. Located within the city's World Heritage-listed castle complex, the cathedral notably contains 14th-century mosaics and stained glass by artist Alfons Mucha. The biggest and most ornate of the cathedral's many side chapels features medieval frescoes depicting scenes from the life of Christ, as well as a hidden staircase leading to a chamber housing priceless Bohemian crown jewels. You may not be able to see the real jewels, which are famously protected by seven locks, but you can reward yourself with panoramic views of the city from the cathedral's south tower.

St. Vitus Cathedral reviews
600 years in the making. One of the most beautiful Cathedrals in the world. I have visited many times over the years and can't help but wish sometimes for the old times, when the area was less... more »
This is an amazing cathedral inside Prague Castle complex. The stained glass windows are exquisite. Interesting history and artifacts inside with information plaques. I’ve been to many cathedrals in..... more »
The queue to get into the cathedral was quite long and tailed all the way down the side. It didn't take too long for it to go down however and once you're inside you're greeted with an enormous, cavernous cathedral with astonishing stained glass windows and artwork. The scale of the place is amazing. It's just a shame you have to pay a large amount to go any further than the back of the cathedral and the candles are just electric. Outside the architecture is beautiful like you would expect. So intricate and delicate despite being an enormous building. You can also climb up the tower to the side of the main entrance for better views of the city.
The most spectacular Church in Prague 1. When I start lining up, waiting to visit the Prague Castle. I see the tower of the church and I already know there is something unique about St. Vitus Cathedral. 2. The Cathedral is spectacular from the outside and inside. The paintings, the architecture style of the church is unique and gorgeous. Love the stain glasses, love everything about the cathedral. 3. You can also choose to visit the tower of St. Vitus Cathedral. There are no elevators so it would be quite tiring walking hundreds of steps up. But I can promise you every steps worth it when you see the spectacular scenery from the top, overlooking the Charles Bridge, old town etc.
