Find out more about Bohemian Gothic, Rudolphian, Baroque art at St. George's Basilica. Prince Vratislav I founded the church in the tenth century, but the facade you see is the result of the early Baroque reconstruction. Inside the austere and monumental interior of the basilica, notice the walls, which were rebuilt in Romanesque fashion, and the high ceilings made of a deep, dark wood. Decorative windows provide atmospheric lighting--an ideal setting for the occasional classical music concerts held here. Head to the main nave to see the tombs of the members of the Premyslid dynasty of princes. Visit the adjacent Gothic chapel to look at the tomb of St. Ludmila, the widow of the ninth-century ruler Prince Borivoj.

  • Small, but peaceful. The oldest preserved church building at Prague Castle and the best preserved example of Romanesque architecture in Bohemia. Built around the year 920 by Prince Vratislav 1...

  • A not very large church, located behind the cathedral of St. Vitus. Extremely old, with a atypical interior architecture for a church. There are not many of the old paintings left on the walls. You...

  • If you know the difference between cathedral and basilica you will then understand that this is the book example of basilica. Beautiful place to visit and see, the entrance is included in the price of a ticket for the complex. Also my advice to come here earlier so you can avoid crowds.
  • Czech republic, great place to visit, inexpensive, lovely, lovely architecture, clean, good beer, nice food and great atmosphere. Friendly locals, and this place is a must visit. So much to do and see. Just go.
