Rose Perspective

The present day Gothic Cathedral of St Vitus was founded on 21st of November, 1344, when the Prague bishopric was raised to an archbishopric.

 

In the 1920s the sculptor Vojtěch Sucharda worked on the facade, and the famous Czech Art Nouveau painter Alfons Mucha decorated the new windows in the north part of nave. The Rose Window was designed by Frantisek Kysela in 1925-7. This Rose Window above the portal depicts scenes from the biblical story of creation.
