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.
Definitely must see. It's charming, it's massive, it's breathtaking. Just imagine the efforts to build such thing. We bought Okruh B tickets. Old Royal Palace, Basilica of St. George, Golden Lane and St. Vitus's Cathedral entrance are included. BTW, You can enter the Cathedral for free, but going deeper inside is where you need a ticket. As always, avoid currency exchange on the territory and local restaurants. Price are astronomically high for common things.
Beautiful cathedral with a rich history spanning Bohemia and the Holy Roman empire. Wikipedia says it is a great piece of Gothic architecture and since I don't know any better I am going to agree. They don't make em like this anymore.
its huge, its gorgeous but not as amazing as the others i saw , especially in Vienna and Budapest. Entry is relatively cheap , about US $ 10 per person ( for the whole castle complex). its noisy and peaceful at the same time. but something for everyone. definitely not to be missed, unless you are one of those, who is in Prague for a day !
I don't recommend paying to go inside the Cathedral as it is a bit overrated in my honest opinion. You can still access the main area of the Cathedral without buying a ticket. Instead I would TOTALLY recommend going up to the tower. It offers a great view of the city!
