If you're not jaded yet by the many examples of soaring religious architecture, St. Vitus has a beautiful interior. Bonus, it's cool inside if you'd like a break from the sun. Photos are allowed, but as seems to be the norm, about half of the...More

The Church of St. Vitus is open daily and admission is free. Cannot remember the hours, but we went during the day. Takes about 15- 20 minutes to view.
