St. Vitus Cathedral, Prague

It only rained for two days while we were in Prague, so we took advantage of it and visited St. Vitus Cathedral! According to many guidebooks and Wikipedia, St. Vitus is 'located within Prague Castle and contains the tombs of many Bohemian kings and Holy Roman Emperors. It is an excellent example of Gothic architecture and is the biggest and most important church in the country.' 
The stained glass windows were mesmerizing.
 We were so enchanted with the cathedral that we came back the next day to climb the Bell Tower!
We also stopped in St. George's Basilica (Bazilika Sv. Jiří), the oldest church building within Prague Castle. The ceiling was amazing!
