St. George's Basilica, Prague

3.9
#20 of 168 in Museums in Prague
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. Make St. George's Basilica a part of your Prague vacation plans using our Prague travel itinerary planner.

  • We attended the church because it was included in our ticket. As a whole there is nothing interesting about it, but on the other hand there were many people. I think you can safely skip it
  • Nice place which allows you to track down how architectural styles were changing within one building.
