St. Vitus Cathedral is the largest and most important Catholic church in Czech. Its splendid exterior, ornate stained glass and statues, along with the tombs of many Bohemian kings inside the church, make it be one of the most valuable spots in Prague.


Before walking closer to the church, you may take a photo of the complete façade afar. This is because the towers at the side are 97m tall; it is very difficult to shoot the whole structure at a short distance. The construction of St. Vitus Cathedral began in 1344. After more than 600 years, the church finally came to completion in the early 20th century. The Cathedral in Gothic style has a highly intricate and decorative exterior. Every detail is so delicate and stunning and it is worth to view carefully.


St. Vitus Cathedral is a grand church with vaults. The second floor facilitates natural lighting, allowing more rays of sunshine shine into the front of the interior. From the design to the control of illumination, the Cathedral is properly lit to create a sense of solemnity.
