The cathedral is covered with intricate detail from floor to ceiling, so you’ll probably be spending most of your time here.
The cathedral dimensions are 124 by 60 meters (407 by 197 feet), the main tower is 102.8 meters high (337 feet), the front towers 82 meters (269 feet), arch height 33.2 meters (109 feet).
Don’t miss St. John of Nepomuk tomb, famous for its intricate silverwork and the art nouveau stained-glass window work completed by the famous Czech painter Alphonse Mucha.

You can observe the inside entrance of the cathedral for free, but to tour the entire facility, you’ll have to pay. See Prague Castle for details.
