We attended a beautiful concert at St. George Basilica while in Prague. The concert was Mozart, Pachabel and Vilvaldi. Acoustics perfect. Seating comfortable. The church is simple and gorgeous. Going to the concert? No need for VIP seating. The venue is small, and the stage...More

Founded in the early 900s, this is the oldest surviving church building inside Prague Castle. Very beautiful exterior facade and totally unexpected interior! We found it very contrasty to the opulent and massive St. Vitus cathedral. Totally worth stepping inside for half an hour or...More

I do not even compare this basilica to St.Vitus Cathedral, they are incomparable, but still I saw more beautiful basilicas. Outside it is better looking; inside you may see old frescos.

This building is a great photo opportunity thanks to its striking, clean facade and impressive architecture. As this building is found within the castle complex, no detour should be necessary to give this sight a visit.

This small church could be easily missed. Very simple but really beautiful and interesting. You need to buy a ticket to get in.

Some steps from the St. Vitus cathedral in the Hradzin you will find this church. It is a big difference of the two churches. St. George basilica is small and simple.

This small basilica is on Castle Hill. We went to an evening concert of Vivaldi's Four Seasons which was splendid and also much longer than what we've heard in the past. It's old and very plain.

This is a great contrast to the opulence St. Vitus Cathedral. Our guide book was just enough detail. What caught us by surprise were the excavation pictures and history at the exit. Everyone is passing right by, probably because almost all of it is in...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

gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses.
Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history.
