Tips from the community

This is the biggest and most important religious structure in Prague and was once used for the coronations of kings and queens. There has been a religious structure on this site since 925, but the current cathedral’s origins began in 1344 with construction ordered by Charles IV.

  • Prague’s best historical highlights

    travelfreak (Jeremy Foster)
    Unlike many other European cities, Prague escaped World War I and World War II relatively unscathed and undamaged from falling bombs and other destruction. The result is a nearly perfectly-preserved historic Old Town, and plenty of other still-standing neighborhoods around it. Castles, cathedrals, Gothic bridges, and even giant clocks are all part of the city’s far-reaching history, and so you’ll learn a thing or two while visiting these important landmarks. This list includes everything from ancient historical sites to medieval structures and slightly more modern pieces of noteworthy architecture, like sleek new buildings and even a graffiti wall where locals once aired their grievances.
