Prague

Treasury of St. Vitus Cathedral

  Prague Castle ,   Hradčany         more than a year ago
One of the newer permanent exhibitions at Prague Castle, the Treasury is the largest in the country and one of the most significant church treasuries in Central Europe. Highlights include a gold coronation cross crafted during the time of Charles IV; reliquary busts of the Saints Vitus, Wenceslas and Adalbert, who are not only the cathedral’s principal patron saints but also the historical protectors of the Kingdom of Bohemia; a diamond-studded monstrance from the baroque era and probably the most bizarre item, a relic of the arm of Saint Vitus, acquired by Prince Wenceslas in 929 from Henry I, Duke of Saxony. The exhibition is a fascinating journey through the history of spiritual wealth amassed in the region.
