Wow! What a building! Absolutely stunning outside and inside. We bought a ticket so we could walk further inside and so glad we did. Some of the sculptures and stained glass windows are absolutely breathtaking. It was a very warm day outside, but inside the cathedral was very cold. There is some building work going on to the outside of... More

This place is stunning inside and out. Take a good camera as you will want to get some amazing pictures of the building and the windows inside.

I always loved to visit Prague, will never get tired of coming here. The surrounding architectures of Prague is like a disney cartoon that comes alive specially in winter. I enjoyed the creamy chocolate drinks, those twirly sweets, goulash and fine dining at reasonable prices. Warning: the people here are rude and discriminate but dont let that ruin your day.

The cathedral and the surrounding grounds, is an amazing example of early architecture. The LONG, winding, tight, stairs are a challenge, but it is worth the trip to climb to the top of the clock tower. As you climb you will see the church bell and the mechanics of the clock.

My husband and I went to St. Vitus's cathedral on the Prague castle grounds. It was definitely one of my favorite cathedrals and I have been all over Europe. Great place to visit if you like cathedral architecture.

I really loved this place, the interior as well as the exterior. We spent more than 20 minutes in the free admissable part, but there are also ticketed parts which seem quite interesting. Loved it!

This building is amazing well worth the visit. There is lots of information on boards in all languages so no need for guide. We did not pay entrance ticket you can see plenty of architectural importance and windows from inside before you go through pay barrier. You can also walk all round the outside and view the golden gate and... More

Visited the Cathedral as part of a tour by 'Good Prague Tours' - we arrived in the early afternoon but due to it being November, we lost light before we got to see and do everything that we'd have liked to do. The Cathedral is beautiful, and it definitely helps to have a guide to explain all the interesting and... More

Staying in Hradcany & Letna

Neighbourhood Profile
Hradcany & Letna
Your experience in Prague will never be complete if you do not see it from the top. Hillsides, stretched from the west to the north, provide spectacular views of greenish copper cupolas, narrow cobblestone streets, bridges connecting both river banks and green gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses. Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history. Walking up the hill or stairs to Prague Castle, the historical seat of Czech rulers and the majestic Saint Vitus Cathedral can leave you speechless (and out of breath). Luckily, plenty of terrace cafés overlooking gardens and beautiful parks are available to provide rest and a place to catch your breath again.
