The Center of the Castle

Do you see the person standing next to the door?
St. Vitus Cathedral is the centerpiece of Prague Castle. It sits high on the hill with the spires reaching 407 feet into the sky and can be seen from miles around. Built in 1344, this cathedral contains the tombs of many Bohemian kings and Holy Roman Emperors.

Side doors
The size of this cathedral is hard to imagine even when you're looking at it. The picture on the right shows the side doors of the church. You can get an idea of the size of the doors by comparing them to the people standing close to them.




Looking back at the organ balcony
To the left is a picture of "The Last Judgment" mosaic that has recently been restored to it's original beauty. The side door in the other picture is in the middle of the three arches.


The inside of the cathedral was so beautiful and massive that I'll let the pictures tell the story.


Looking forward to the main altar
