  • Beautiful, but pales in comparison to others in Europe. We had seen so many cathedrals in France, Italy, Germany and Holland, that this was pretty, but nothing memorable. It was even less memorable because the people in Prague are not traditionally religious and not really connected to this building either, which made it feel much less significant (unlike, for example, the reaction of Italians and tourists to places like St. Peter's - which has HUGE personal significance). The stained glass was definitely the highlight - truly a beautiful piece of art. This was my favourite part. If you are spending a few days in Prague, of course you would go and see it. Just maybe don't set your expectations super high.

  • The view from these grounds over Prague was something to be seen. Watching the royal guards march was surreal and the cathedral was very rich in history and design. It’s like a maze inside but worth the wait time to get in.

  • This was just an impressive, impressive church. It's beautiful and the architecture is gorgeus. If you go in the summer, you might actually miss the entrance... just go to extremely crowded place with a very long queue - that's the entrance. This is a must see place in Prague.

  • One of the most beautiful cathedrals in all of Europe. A must-see upon any visit to the country. There is no cost to entering the building but if you want to walk all the way to the front and see some of the ornate work up close you will have to pay for the tour.
