Saint Vitus Cathedral

Local nameKatedrála svatého Víta, Václava a Vojtěcha
LocationHradčany, Prague, Czechia

The Prague skyline would look empty without this Gothic miracle, which was founded in 1344. The three-aisled Roman Catholic cathedral with transept and radiating chapels became an indispensable part of Prague. The most renowned part of the church is probably the Chapel of St. Wenceslas, built by Peter Parler. Even though the chapel is not accessible, you can take a look at its beautiful ribbed vault from the doorways.

The cathedral also houses the Crown Chamber where the Czech crown jewels are stored. Unfortunately, you will not be able to see them because they are displayed only on important occasions and anniversaries, approximately once per five years. But the cathedral itself with its beautiful façade, large rose window and an impressive golden mosaic of Last Judgment inside is a must for everybody visiting Prague.

You don't need a ticket to access the foyer of the cathedral and peek into the main hall. A ticket will allow you to tour most of the cathedral. A special ticket has to be bought to see The Treasure of St. Vitus Cathedral.
