On of the most beautiful cathedral interiors in Prague, Czech Republic, is found in St. Vitus. Throughout the sacristy, nave and altar areas, wonderfully preserved stained, leaded glass art windows abound. This triple glass arched set of windows was my favorite.
It was originally started in 925, added to in 1060, and finished in all its glory during the Renaissance in 1334. It is the largest example of a Gothic cathedral in the country, and is within the Czech Castle property.

    It’s beautiful Phil. I’m surprised you managed to take any pictures inside, when we were there the guard came over and said, “no pictures”….Jules…Favor

    he was cruising this large place and I timed my placement to get quite a few of these windows. With the Mark III, too, there is no flash and therefore no potential damage to works of art. thanks for your ongoing support, my friend
