Reviewed 6 April 2018

We arrived at the cathedral around 9:15am and found that it opened it's doors this day at 9:30am, so we purchased tickets that allowed us to go beyond the entrance to get a closer look at the rest of this beautiful church. The cost was approximately 2 Euros per person, and we felt it was well worth the nominal cost. The stained glass was, as you would expect from a large European cathedral, stunning. Our children, 11 and 12, also found it quite beautiful and worth the visit.
We were happy to have been one of the first in line because as with many attractions once the crowds got large people would push through, etc. Waiting in line for the 15 min allowed us to visit this beautiful venue with relative peace and a bit of reverence that is lost somewhat once the crowds swell.

We purchased a ticket for the St. Vitus Catherdral that included access to the museum and some other areas. As soon as you get through security, and go through the arches, you see the cathedral. It is stunning and makes for a great picture.

Took us about 10 to 15 minutes to get into the Cathedral, please ensure you purchase a ticket, some people got into a line and were told to go purchase a ticket.

The inside of the Cathedral is so peaceful, so much history, so much architecture..was a very blessed feeling to spend time here.

Located inside the Presidential Palace complex, the St. Vitus Cathedral has unique interior designs and architectural sculptures. If you want to go inside, it is free. But, if you want to go more, you need to pay 250czk per person and then you can go more deeper into the Cathedral. 250czk is for many places (Golden Lane, Museums and the Old Castle).

Please do remind that there will be security check before you go inside the complex since it’s a Presidential Palace.

The building is beautiful and for me was the only thing in the castle complex that really stood out. The climb of the tower being the highlight. The only downside for me was the price. Unreasonably high and you pay separately for the cathedral, tower and to take photos.

Unless you are a fan of Gothic church architecture, your time is better spent visiitng other sights within the "Prague Castle" compound - its the first so gets inundated with tourists for no particular reason.
