St. George Basilica

The St. George’s Basilica is the oldest church building within the castle district of Prague, and it was founded already in the 10th century by Vratislaus I of Bohemia. A fire forced them to rebuild the church in the 12th century, and today’s façade can be dated back to the 17th century. Inside the church you can find the shrines of Vratislaus I and Boleslaus II of Bohemia.

Today the St. George’s Basilica houses the Bohemian art collection which belongs to the National Gallery in Prague, and it also serves as a concert hall.
