The cathedral of St Vitus is one of the most important monuments in the city. The construction had beginning in 1344 for order of John of Luxemburg. The jobs were begun by the French Mathieu of Arras and continued, after his death, from Swabian Peter Parler up to the Hussite Wars. The cathedral had been being completed by architects and artists of the nineteenth and twentieth century. To its interior there are preserved the St. Venceslao's buried and joys.

The rose window of the facade was drawn by Frantisek Jysela in 1925-1927 and it illustrates scenes of the creation.
