St. Vitus' Cathedral, Prague: 328 reviews and 578 photos
Ok time to head up to the Castle complex now, known as Hadcrany. Its virtually a town in itself and you can't do it justice all in one day. We were glad we left the inside tours for a rainy day - see General tips for opening times, ticket details and complex layout as I won't repeat that here. After watching the changing of the guard most will head for St Vitus Cathedral.
This Gothic cathedral, the spiritual symbol of the Czech state, was founded by Jan Lucembursky (John of Luxembourg) and his sons Karel and Jan Jindrich. It took nearly six centuries to build. Begun in 1344 by Mathias Arras and Petr Parler upon the site of a 10th century rotunda, the final phase of construction only ended during 1873-1929.
Its an incredible building, so much detail and impossible to to get an allin one shot.
