Dominant element of view from our Charles Bridge Apartments in Prague. You can’t miss to visit it! Saint Vitus’ Cathedral (Czech: Katedrála svatého Víta) is a Roman Catholic cathedral and the largest and the most important temple in Prague.
The overwhelming feeling when you enter the cathedral is not only caused by knowing how old these cathedrals are, or by realizing how insane it must have been to spend hundreds of years building it, or by the astonishing details of the architecture, but for the most part, by the magical light effect.
The windows of the Cathedral transmit a subtle and frequently coloured light. It used to have not only aesthetic but symbolic significance. The interior of the Cathedral was considered to be a holy place ripped out of this world, a “heavenly Jerusalem”, which is not illuminated by natural light but by the unearthly and mystical coloured light of God’s glory.
