Photographer's Note

The back of St. Vitus cathedral at Prague Castle. An awful Prague cliché, I know, but I just had to… I was having so much fun with my new tripod ;-) Thanks for indulging me.

The Cathedral’s full name is the Cathedral of St. Vitus, St. Wenceslas, and St. Adalbert (Katedrála Sv. Víta, Sv. Václava a Sv. Vojtěcha in Czech). Its construction was commenced in 1344, by Emperor Charles IV, on a site where several churches had stood over the centuries. Its construction was stopped several times at various stages and it was not completed until the 1920s. The part shown in this picture, however, is the oldest, Gothic part. Several Kings and Queens of Bohemia are buried in the Cathedral.
