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.

Beautiful cathedral that is well worth a visit when strolling the castle grounds. The stained glass windows are absolutely worth checking out!

One of the key landmarks in Prague, you probably have to brave the crowds and have a look at the Cathedral.
I didn't do the tour as I find these a bit of a bore but you can go in and marvel at the size, the stained glass and decoration etc. I did do the walk up the tower, a lot of steps but great views from the top.

The St Vitus cathedral on the grounds of the Prague Castle is a stunningly beautiful building, taking over 600 years to complete. The all stone structure has some of the finest hand hewn details I have ever seen. You could easily spend several hours exploring, photographing and being amazed at what was created.

This is the centerpiece of the castle grounds, and a must for all visitors. Make sure you get your tickets next door then brave the long lines to get in the expansive and enchanting space.

Very large and very detailed cathedral. Would suggest 100% for sure. It is hard to comprehend how it was built even.

The Metropolitan Cathedral Of Saints Vitus,Wenceslas and Adelbert is one of the landmark buildings in Prague ,a truly stunning cathedral in the Castle District .
This is a beautiful example of Gothic architecture with amazing features throughout ,on my latest holiday to Prague I never visited the cathedral but I have on many holidays to Prague over many years and it's amazing as is the Castle District ,I did view St Vitus Cathedral while wobbling over Charles Bridge at 1am in the morning heading to Legend 13 Pub in the Lesser Town for some beers ,it looked magical at night when illuminated ,all in all a cathedral I highly recommend you check out if you're planning on visiting Prague .

The entire Castle complex is beautiful and breathtaking. We were on a guided tour, so a little bit rushed. But our guide was knowledgeable, and we will definitely return one day to explore at a more leisurely pace.

One of the best Cathedral I have been too!! Definitely must do the paid tour for 10 Euros. You get to walk all the way through the Cathedral to see all the stained glass and the sculptures! Must visit location if visiting Prague!

The cathedral is definitely worth visiting. Even if you choose not to go inside the architecture alone is amazing, unique, and the surroundings are breath-taking. It is mesmerising during the day and at night.
