Prague – St Vitus Cathedral

This post is actually a continuation of the previous one, as St Vitus Cathedral is situated within the Prague Castle complex.  The Gothic Cathedral is a spectacular building,  however,  in my opinion the highlight is the Art Nouveau stained glass window designed by Alphonse Mucha. The middle section of the window depicts the boy St. Wenceslas with his grandmother St. Ludmila, whereas the side sections show episodes from the lives of Saints Cyril and Methodius.
