The Multicolours of St. Vitus Cathedral

The silhouette of St. Vitus Cathedral can be seen from almost anywhere in Prague. The cathedral is part of the Prague Castle.
The first buildings appeared on this hill in the city Prague in 880 AD.
Around 925 AD a round building was built on the "Hill of the Gods" as a safe shrine for the hand of Saint Vitus. In the centuries that followed, the current St. Vitus cathedral was finally created.
The Prague Castle is the largest closed palace complex in the world and consists of several palaces and churches. The official office of the President of the Czech Republic is also part of the complex.

After a tiring climb up the hill in the oppressive heat, it was nice to relax in the coolness of the cathedral.

A beautiful Gothic interior was magically lit by the sunlight that flooded into the church through the brightly coloured stained glass windows.

A trio of photos in the order you will expect of me (zooming out) shows this.
