Prague, Czech - St. Vitas Cathedral Interior - Part 1

This is a beautiful cathedral.  Walk through and look at it on the first posts.  I will update these with my research to resend and they will have more detail on specific items.  The research on the interior has been quite lengthy.

Take it in.  It is quite beautiful.

The stained glass windows are at the floor level.  The windows that were high were clear with the intention to allow light to enter and illuminate the upper level. The upper light made the ceiling feel very tall.

Stained glass window by Alphonse Mucha.

The rose window on the west facade depicts biblical scenes and was designed by František Kysela.
