St. George's Basilica is the oldest church building within the Prague Castle complex. It is also the best preserved Romanesque church in Prague. St. George's Basilica (Bazilika Sv. Jiří) was founded by Prince Vratislav (915-921) in 920. The basilica was then enlarged in 973 with the construction of St. George's Benedictine Convent. Its ceiling is made of a deep, dark wood, its height accentuated by the fairly narrow width of the church. Decorative windows in the stone walls provide atmospheric lighting. Within the church lie several tombs of major historic importance.
