We loved going round St Vitus, the whole place is jaw-dropping. You need to allow plenty of time to visit here as there is so much to take in, and so many parts that just take your breath away! One word of warning, when we...More

Definitely worth a visit! Really cool architecture and it's got very interesting aspects inside! I believe you can see a part of the cathedral free of charge, but having a ticket is worth it so see the whole place in ease and more accurately!

Huge old cathedral that deserves to be seen. Check the opening hours before you go. Also plan some spare time as there is a security check at the Castle entrance.

We had to wait 2 hours for this place to be opened as it was closed most of the day. So by the time we went back to it, the queue was VERY long. We waited for about 40 minutes to get in. Beautiful windows...More

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.
