About St. Vitus Church In Prague
St. Vitus Cathedral Prague, the seat of Archbishop of Prague, is a cathedral of Saint Adalbert, Saint Wenceslaus, and Saint Vitus. The St. Vitus Cathedral interior is heavily influenced by Gothic architecture with a renaissance and baroque touch as well. The construction of the church took longer than expected; there were several attempts over the centuries to complete it but it got delayed somehow.
In the late 19th century, many architects tried to complete and repair the church. Finally in 1929 after almost 600 years after the foundation was laid, the church was finally complete. St. Vitus Cathedral history is definitely a long study of the history of Prague. One can just study the Neo-Gothic architecture and still discover something new about the church every single time.
While studying the history St. Vitus Cathedral burials are also an essential part. Tombs of many Bohemian Kings and Holy Roman Emperors are located within the castle. Recently, there have been a few legal cases regarding the church’s ownership and a bill which was passed in November 2012. The main tower of St. Vitus Cathedral is 102.8 meters high and the front towers are 82 meters high.
