You can see the spires of St. Vitus’s Cathedral from all around the centre of Prague. As you walk into the main area of Prague Castle it is smack bang in front of you and is incredibly impressive.
Although work started on the Cathedral in 1344, the baroque looking entrance and spires weren’t finished until 1929. If you look closely at the windows on the front façade, you will see men in suits!
There are a number of Royal tombs inside including the tomb of “Good King” Wenceslas, which if you are anything like me, will have you singing the bloody Christmas Carol all day long.
St. Vitus’s is huge and beautiful and is without a doubt the highlight of Prague Castle. You can enter the main area for free, but if you want to access all of the Cathedral you’ll need a ticket.
I did feel that St. Vitus’s was a little crammed in by the rest of the buildings in the Castle, I think if it has been alone it would have been even more impressive.
Anyway, enough of all these words – let’s get to the pictures!
Have you been to St. Vitus’s before? Was it the highlight of Prague Castle for you?
