This towering, majestic Gothic cathedral is by far the most amazing sight on the Prague Castle grounds. We highly recommend paying the extra fee to see the inside of the cathedral, though if it's summer get there extra early - the lines stretch for hours at the entrance. Luckily, St. Wenceslas Chapel, the "cult centre of St. Vitus Cathedral," is well worth the wait. Begun in a Gothic style in the fourteenth century, the cathedral wasn't finished until 1929, when the main nave and the narrow side aisles and the northern wing of the transverse nave were added in a Neo-Gothic style. The whole structure will make your neck ache from trying to register the cathedral in its entirety, but luckily you can look down at a magnificent view of Prague from its tower.
