St. Vitus Cathedral

The St. Vitus Cathedral is Prague’s largest and most important church. It goes back to the 14th century and is situated inside the Castle.

Your entry tickets to Prague Castle include admission to St. Vitus Cathedral.

It has two organ cases, the upper facade from the Baroque era, and 40 stops on three manuals and pedals. 

The lower organ is the major one in use today, and it was erected in the first half of the twentieth century, with a total of 4475 pipes.

The majestic St. Vitus Cathedral in Prague was built on the site of the original Romanesque rotunda in 1344. 

This Gothic church, which took approximately 600 years to complete, is a spiritual icon of the Czech Republic.

It was only built in 1929, yet it is an essential element of Prague Castle’s history. 

Its majestic interiors include the brilliantly designed St Wenceslas Chapel with St Wenceslas’ tomb.

The crypt where many Czech kings are buried, and the Crown Chamber, which houses the crown treasures. 

Tourists who have visited this church have been amazed by the intricate stained-glass windows.
