Cathedral of sv Václav and Premysl Palace

Dwarfing tiny Václavské square is the Cathedral of sv Václav, originally a Romanesque basilica, which contains a crypt packed with reliquaries. Next door is the Archdiocesan Museum in Přemysl Palace, showcasing more than a thousand years of local history and a mind-blowing collection of church bling. The highlight is a gold-plated carriage covered with romping cherubs.
