Angels of Hradcany


[Angels of Hradcany - Praha]

In the center of St. Vitus Cathedral is the Royal Mausoleum. Here, beneath Gothic ceilings and reflecting the glitter of gold, angels soar in the air. (No, that's not Harry Potter! This is a totally different vision of heavenly play - and unrelated to Quidditch). An awesome sight to see today, imagine seeing this centuries ago. St. John of Nepomuk resides here still, in a baroque-style tomb made from two tons of silver, accompanied by a squadron of silver angels.
