Cathedral of St. Vitus
Cathedral of St. Vitus, Wenceslas and Adalbert in the Prague castle is monumental Gothic church and the coronation cathedral of the Bohemian sovereigns. The construction of the three-nave Gothic cathedral was begun in 1344 by main architect Matthias of Arras. From 1356 Petr Parléř took over the construction. After the death of Charles IV. (1378) Petr Parléř continued his work, but he died twenty years after the Emperor. Parléř's sons hammered the construction site through a wall of planks and closed the fragment of the temple by the wall. The cathedral thus remained torso for the next five hundred years. The building was ceremonially completed in 1929.
