St. Vitus Cathedral: The Exterior

St. Vitus, St. Wenceslas and St. Adalbert Cathedral inside the Prague Castle is the largest and most important church of Czech Republic. This Gothic church is most commonly referred to as St. Vitus Cathedral.

In the morning, the front of the cathedral is against the light.

Past noon time, the front facade is slowly catching the sunlight. Therefore, the pattern of the rose window and other details are more visible.

However, late evening time is the best time to see the cathedral with a golden grow during the golden hour.

On the right side of the cathedral is the clock tower. The best time to capture this is in the morning while it is still facing the sun.

The front of the cathedral is fascinating, but the rear is not a little less fascinating. The flying buttresses with pinnacles can be clearly seen from the back during morning time.

When the sun has moved to the west, the rear view of the church turns into a silhouette.

If you have enough time, it is best to pay at least two visits to the cathedral to see it under different lighting.
