Twice, went in St. Vitus Cathedral twice. One was the no charge open the door and look in, this was a group tour. The other was an independent, self guided tour and required payment, stay as long as you like, go nearly everywhere inside. Take all the NO FLASH ALLOWED photos you want. I enjoyed it while we were there, but now going back over the photos, it is so amazingly beautiful. If The Cathedral was thought of as Heaven, it seems a wonderful place. Stained glass windows, statuary, alter piece, organ, just one incredible sight after the other. In total we must have spent 4 hours inside, and another half outside just looking at the spires and gargoyles. Fairly crowded, in the free areas, less so in the payment for entry areas. I have nearly one hundred photos, a couple really good ones. The light inside gives a very good mood to your pictures.

This cathedral is not to be missed -- the building is a superb example of Gothic architecture with excellent details in sculpture, design, and tile work. Inside, the stained glass windows are outstanding, as are the murals, silver memorial and all other decorations. Add the historical elements and this is a must on a tour of Prague.

Had a good guide with walking tour, via a headset we moved through the highlights. I highly recommend doing the tour portions that give you the history and background it adds so much more to the experience.

we visited here just to see the castle and the cathedral. we didnt pay the entrance fee just saw inside the entrance which was breathtaking. there were lots of queues to get in and a lot of people just pushing in which was annoying but worth the wait.

St. Vitus Cathedral is located in a large castle complex, one of the largest in Europe. From far away it looks like the cathedral is actually the castle, but it's only a small part. Still, there is a reason why people may think this—the cathedral is a large structure that sits majestically at the top of the hill, seemingly above and detached from everything else. I can imagine that during a fog, from the air, it may look like a castle on a cloud.

Inside the cathedral is large and impressive, but overall similar to many large cathedrals in Europe. There isn't much separating it from the rest, but unless you travel around Europe all the time, it's still not often that you will see such a structure.

There is usually a long line to the entrance, but occasionally it dwindles, sometimes until there is no line at all. I think this happens later in the day—we passed by multiple times and noticed it twice in later hours.
