Where : St. Vitus Cathedral
Discovering St. Vitus Cathedral, Prague
St. Vitus Cathedral (or Katedrála Sv. Víta) is definitely one of the top most beautiful Gothic churches we saw in Europe. It's located in Hradčany, which is the hillside complex where you'll find the likes of the Prague Castle and Golden Lane just to name a few. It's easy to spend a couple of full days discovering Hradčany.
What about St. Vitus ?
It’s so rich in details/colors that we kind of got lost in our imagination trying to understand how it was built. Where does one start putting this concept together !?
Alright, outside is a masterpiece but what about inside right !? It's hard to describe in words and even the pictures doesn't do it justice. It's simply huge, completely decorated in golden colors, the tall ceiling and the many exquisite paintings shows an innovative and unique design in architecture.
There is an entrance fee that you can combine with the ticket to visit Prague Castle. This link will help you with accessibility questions and more. We believe that we selected circuit A, giving us access to St. Vitus, Prague Castle, Golden Lane and St. George's Basilica.
