What people say

"As you step into St. George's Basilica in Prague, you're greeted by a serene atmosphere and stunning Romanesque architecture. Marvel at its well-preserved interior adorned with intricate frescoes and elegant vaulted ceilings, offering a glimpse into centuries of Czech history and religious significance. Don't miss the peaceful courtyard, perfect for a moment of reflection amidst the bustling city. included with Prague Castle ticket "
"St. George's Basilica in Prague is the oldest church in Prague. The basilica was founded by Vratislaus I, Duke of Bohemia in 920, and is dedicated to St. George. The Baroque façade dates from the late 17th century. The interior of the basilica retains a sobriety and austerity, mainly due to the whiteness of the limestone, unlike the Baroque and Rococo churches in Prague."
"Music At The Prague Castle: Pachelbel, Mozart and Vivaldi - It was great and would recommend booking an evening concert before heading out for a meal after. It's only an hour and incredible to think of the history and let's face it a great use of a church. - You can book at the church its self the day before and it might cost 20 euro. "
