One of the most beautiful Gothic Church we saw in Europe for sure is St Vitus Cathedral. The gorgeous Church is located near the Prague Castle and it’s so rich in colors and details that we kind of get lost in our imagination trying to understand how before they could put together such amazing art work. The building outside it’s already a piece of art, and inside the Golden colors of the columns, ceilings and the many perfect paintings shows an innovative and unique design in architecture. You will need more than one hour for sure inside to see our the many sculptures, paintings and rooms around in details. There is an entrance fee that you can combine with the ticket to visit Prague Castle. Eli: 5 / Serge: 5 Recommended: Totally,it’s a perfect example of Gothic design and art in Churches, really magnificence.
A must see and on everyone’s list. There is good reason for this, firstly you can see it from everywhere in the city and it is of course amazing. Within the castle complex there are many buildings, including art galleries, historic places and the Cathedral. To get into the Cathedral area you must pass though a military manned security check, expect a bag search and magnetic wand check. You can get into the Cathedral and walk all around the grounds without buying a ticket. From behind the velvet rope you get a pretty good view of the Cathedral. Obviously you can buy a ticket if you want to get up to the altar.
One of the most stunning place I have been to globally for sure. You would immediately be amazed by its architecture from the outside and it stands majestically with amazing details all over. After the long cue you realize that you are stepping into something incredible again. It is instantly understood how much effort this country and the former kings/ emperors are into their believes and region. Every corner of the cathedral tell a story of its own and contains amazing details that express mankind intellectual. From the stones, statues, painted glass, furnitures and preserved artifacts, you get drawn into deeply wanting to understand Czech history further. Come in the early morning or later afternoon to get the best effect of natural lighting, the ceiling and painted glass would put on the most spectacular color paintings to anyone who cares to notice. Anywhere in Prague that I would say you should not miss, this would be my highest recommendation. Bring your camera and be ready to be drawn into. By the way, admission required so get your ticket across the cathedral before you spend anytime on the long cue.
Beautiful place. The historical buildings, roads and the surrounding areas takes you to a great land. You can enjoy holidays here. But you can't stay here for more than 3 days. You can visit each and everything in just 2,3 days.
Great place. The cathedral is awesome. We were late when we arrived (3 pm and only 2 hours before closing). The stained glasses were awe-inspiring. The only downside was all the audio were rented (as we were late), so we could only look without understanding the full history of it.
