Southern Tower of Saint Vitus Cathedral

Standing almost 100m tall, the southern tower is the highest tower of Saints Vitus, Wenceslas and Adalbert Cathedral.

Initiated by Peter Parler in the 14th century, it was damaged by fire in 1541 and had to undergo reconstruction, carried out by Bonifác Wolmut.

The nearly  300-stair climb is rewarded with a view of St. Vitus bells, including Zikmund, the most famous one and also the biggest one in the Czech Republic. Cast by bell founder Tomáš Jaroš from Brno in 1549, it is decorated with relief scenes such as Jesus on the cross with king Ferdinand and his wife Anne kneeling beside him, or St. Vitus and St. Adalbert reliefs. Moreover, the bell features an innovative decoration item, a relief band with impressed coins and medals.

The Renaissance-style gallery offers a magnificent view of Prague, including the Castle courtyard, as well as Charles Bridge or the Church of Our Lady Victorious, housing the famous Prague Infant Jesus.
