St. George’s Basilica is the oldest church building within the Prague Castle complex. It is also the best-preserved Romanesque church in Prague.
St. George’s Basilica was founded by Prince Vratislav (915-921) in 920. The basilica was then enlarged in 973 with the construction of St. George’s Benedictine Convent.
While visiting the basilica, we happened upon what appeared to be a funeral. The church was packed and the atmosphere was rather eerie with a hint of jubilation.
