In 1344, Emperor Charles IV laid the cathedral's foundation stone. I like the stained glass windows created by Czech artists as the colours flooded the cathedral as the sunlight shines through. Towards the centre end, you can see brass crosiers on the floor marking the tombs of bishops. Within the cathedral are many side chapels of saints that depict important events in their lives.
