Camparing to the cathedral this one is more simple. But still beautiful. You can feel how it used to be. Too bad not a lot remains from back then.

We attended a beautiful concert at St. George Basilica while in Prague. The concert was Mozart, Pachabel and Vilvaldi. Acoustics perfect. Seating comfortable. The church is simple and gorgeous. Going to the concert? No need for VIP seating. The venue is small, and the stage...More

I do not even compare this basilica to St.Vitus Cathedral, they are incomparable, but still I saw more beautiful basilicas. Outside it is better looking; inside you may see old frescos.

This building is a great photo opportunity thanks to its striking, clean facade and impressive architecture. As this building is found within the castle complex, no detour should be necessary to give this sight a visit.

Your experience in Prague will never be complete if
you do not see it from the top. Hillsides, stretched
from the west to the north, provide spectacular views
of greenish copper cupolas, narrow cobblestone
streets, bridges connecting both river banks and green
gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses.
Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history.
