This is the centrepiece of the Prague castle area and can be seen for miles around.  It’s another gothic masterpiece on the outside and inside you’ll find some really impressive stained glass windows.  This is an extract from our free Prague City Guide.

This Cathedral dates back to 1344 but was not fully completed until the 20th Century.  The stained glass windows are some of the best we’ve seen and are the big draw inside the Cathedral. Other highlights inside though, include the tomb of “Good King” Wenceslas and the Last Judgment mosaic which is above the south entrance.  Outside, there’s the beautiful gothic architecture to enjoy with it’s many turrets and towers. Admission to the Cathedral is free, although there may still be a small charge to visit the Crypt or Bell Tower.  Open Monday to Saturday from 9am to 4pm in the winter and 9am to 5pm in the summer.  The cathedral does not open on Sundays until 12pm.  The cathedral is part of the Prague In One Day Sightseeing Tour.
