St. Vitus Cathedral is the Roman Catholic cathedral in Prague. It is part of the Prague Castle complex.
Dating from the 10th century the cathedral is an excellent example of Gothic architecture. It is also the most important religious building in the city.
Whichever tour Prague Castle option you choose St. Vitus is always included. However, I must warn you that it is extremely popular and you will find yourself being swept along with the crowds and tour parties. Despite that there is always a hush inside the building. It is only broken with sound of the staff warning you not to take photos with flash. This is the perfect opportunity for you not to use the automatic setting on your camera.
Inside the cathedral there is St. Wenceslas’s Chapel where the remains of the saint are kept. Sadly you will not be able to enter the chapel itself but can be viewed via a side window. There are plenty of statues and monuments to view that reflect the history of Prague.
It is important to take your time to explore the cathedral in order to take everything in. Otherwise if you allow yourself to be swept up in the crowds you may end up on missing out on a lot on what the cathedral has to offer.
Until the next post stay safe, stay healthy and keep smiling.
