Vita. More than a hundred years later, a Romanesque basilica appeared here, on the site of which, in the first half of the 14th century, construction of the Gothic cathedral began. The cathedral was supposed to be a place for a coronation, a family crypt, a treasury, but construction was delayed for 1000 years. The epochs passed, the ruling dynasties took turns …
The project of the cathedral was developed by Mathieu of Arras, a French architect, invited to Prague by Charles IV himself. He also began to build the eastern part of the structure. The choir of the cathedral reached an impressive size: length – 47 m and height – 39 m. In 1359, Peter Parléř began to lead the construction, giving the building features of German Gothic. From 1399 to 1420 continued the construction of the sons of Peter Parler – Jan, Wenceslas and Peter. Under their leadership, choirs were completed and construction began on the main tower right up to the bypass gallery. The main tower with bells, completed in the second half of the 16th century by G. Tirolle and B. Wolmuth, rises above the temple, reaching 99 m. It houses the largest Czech bell tower Sigismund (16th century).
In 1872, J. Moker completed the construction of an architectural monument. He adhered to the plans of Peter Parler, while he paid particular attention to the western part of the church, where the Novogothic features are pronounced. At the same time, construction began on the portal, completed by architect K. Gilbert in 1929. In the same year, a thousand years after St. Wenceslas, the temple was consecrated. The facade, bounded by two towers, is a masterpiece of the new-gothic architecture. It is distinguished by rich decorations that attract attention primarily to the central window rosette and portal. This is the result of the work to complete the construction of the temple, which continued in the second half of the 19th and the first half of the 20th century.
