Perhaps the most striking building is that of St. Vitus’s Cathedral. Started as a rotunda in the 10th century, additions were made over the next 1,000 years: it was a Basilica in the 11th century, expanded to a Gothic Cathedral in the 14th century and finally completed by 19th and 20th century architects and artists]. The west entrance [Neo-Gothic style] features twin spires and a Rose Window.
Beneath the Rose window is a detail of the tympanum.
Entering the cathedral and heading down the nave, one is struck by the soaring height of the walls and ceiling.
Turning to look back at the Rose Window.
Finally, some additional exterior images toward the apse, where the rather delicate flying buttresses are nicely visible.
Next week, I will continue to explore the area around Prague Castle.
