St. George's Basilica

Prague, Czech Republic
3.8 / 10
The Basilica of St. George is the oldest surviving church in Prague Castle, founded by Vratislav I in 920 in honor of St. George. In 973, the church was significantly expanded due to the extension of the Benedictine Abbey, dedicated to the same saint. In 1142, the basilica was significantly damaged during a major fire, but in a short time it was restored almost to its original form, with the exception of the facade and some artistic details of the interior. Two flocked Romanesque towers with built windows were completed. The narrower north tower was called Eve, the wider - Adam

Nothing special to be frank comparing to St. Vitus Cathedral 1. The architecture style of both of the buildings are different. One is Romanesque style and has a long history. St Vitus Cathedral is built in Gothic Style and has a shorter history. 2. .. Read more »


This basilica is beautiful again architecture and design is second to none. It has beautiful paintings inside which you can only appreciate of you see it in person. Must visit if you are in Prague castle


Worth a little wonder around while your passing on your way to Golden Alley near the palace.


This is a beautiful holy place that is built in a diffetent style compared to St Vitus Cathedral. Its currently being renovated, and the results so far are impressive. There are pictures hanging, which deserve to be seen up close to really appreciate.. Read more »
