3. St. Vitus Cathedral – Top 10 Things to See and Do in Prague
St. Vitus Cathedral, with its flying buttresses and spiny spires, is the historic main church of the Czech people. Construction started in 1344, but wars, plagues, and reforms conspired to delay its completion. It was finally finished in 1929 for the 1000th Jubilee anniversary of St. Wenceslas. Inside, Wenceslas Chapel is the historic heart of the Cathedral where Bohemia’s kings were crowned, and it houses the Bohemian crown jewels. It also contains the tomb of St. Wenceslas, patron saint of the Czech nation.
