This cathedral is great example of Gothic architecture and is the largest and most important church in the country. The only problem, how to get in - there are simply too many people.

Definitely thing you have to see while you're in Prague. I recommend it to everyone. Taking pics inside is forbidden but no one obeyed that rule.
