  1. The many details in this church are amazing. The doors are made of bronze? Very nice. It is a lavish building. And your photos of it are outstanding.

  2. That is such a wonderful place. It's nice to see your pictures because they bring back such good memories. Did you know that one of the stained glass windows was desined by Alphonse Mucha? I forgot to take a picture of it. I think it's the second or third window on left when you walk in.

  4. Each of these imges would deserve a comment, my favorite are the first impressive shot of the towers and the following doorway. Of the beautiful inside I like a bit more the last two pictures, but every single one is great.

  5. Leia: The wonders of Europe are shown through these photos. The first photo with the white sky make it look like you captured it in B&W. What wonders you captured inside. I'm going to Italy, Austria and Germany in three weeks so I will see these type Cathedrals in person.

  6. So much details, so much sculptures, so much things to see everywhere you turn your eyes!!The beauty of the cathedral is incredible! I'm sure we would not be able to build such a monument today..Every thing seen is made to give us spirituality.
    The french word for this style is “baroque”, or even “rococo”. This last word is for the people who don't like this style and find it too “heavy”,(= with to much things). First word is a normal word, second one has a negative meaning..

  7. Outstanding! «Louis» really enjoys seeing the great cathedrals of Europe. It's a wonder this one survived the two horrible wars of the 20th century. It appears that little of the original stained glass remains.

    The stained glass at Chartres and at la Sainte-Chapelle survived World War II because when the Nazis invaded France, the glass was removed, packed in straw and hidden in barns in the countryside. Given the destruction of most of the French countryside in World War II, it's a wonder that the barns the glass was hidden in weren't destroyed!

  8. Isn't St. Vitus the guy that had an itch or something and had to dance all the time?

    Love your photos…what an incredible place…and your pictures have given us a close and colorful glimpse into the wonders it contains.

  10. Vous avez payé pour prendre les photos à l'intérieur ? Quand j'y suis allée, il fallait payer alors par principe je n'ai pas fait de photos. Evidemment, je le regrette 🙂 surtout quand je vois celles-ci !

  11. This is such a fantastic cathedral and your photos make it justice! Pity it's so difficult to get a shot of the whole building as I'm sure you've also noticed… 🙂

  12. I love your photos of St. Vitus! It feels like I was there. Well, I was, but still, your pics are great. 🙂 I love the one of the doorway.

    Leia, James shared with me your response to his comment. I agree that it's somehow nicer to pray in smaller, quieter places that seem to be built for that purpose, and not a place that seems more like a museum.

    Guess what? I think we will be in Brussels and Paris in November. How wonderful it would be if you and Cezar could meet us there for a day or two!
