St. Vitus CathedralThe epitomy of Prague Gothic
The first church was erected in the 10th century when Wenceslas I ordered the St. Vitus rotunda to be built. A century later the Roman basilica was built and in the 14th century a Gothic cathedral was erected on the site, which was finished in 1929, when its doors were opened to the public. The façade flanked by twin towers is a neo-Gothic work. Climbing the tower is hard work but the views overlooking the city are well worth the effort.
