The cathedral of SS Vitus, Wenceslas and Adalbert is a church of such significance that it is perceived to be the most sacred place in the country. The remains of the patrons of this country – SS Vitus, Wenceslas, Adalbert, Sigismund and John of Nepomuk – are kept here. Christians gather here to praise the Lord and ask for blessings for themselves, as well as for the whole country.
In addition to this national significance, the cathedral also has a unique status in the Prague archdiocese. It is the capital church of the archbishop of Prague, as well as the church of the St Vitus Metropolitan Chapter and the parish church of the cathedral parish, which is located in the Prague – Hradčany quarter (parts of Prague 1 and Prague 6). The cathedral is the main pilgrimage site of the Prague Archdiocese.
The religious services in the cathedral are organised by the Archbishopric of Prague, the Metropolitan Chapter and the Dóm parish.
