St. Vitus Cathedral is typical of Gothic architecture, especially from its various spires. But in fact, a careful observation of the church will reveal that the style of the church seen from different angles is somewhat different. It is like the stitching of several churches to complete the building. That was because the construction of the St. Vitus Cathedral was finally established after the creation of different architects for centuries.
The top of the church has a Renaissance-style big clock. This clock tower is the most beautiful place overlooking the city of Prague. Be sure to board it and have a look. Even if you want to climb 287 stairs, there is no elevator to rely on the full force, it is quite worth it!
