Czech crown jewels return to Saint Vitus’ Cathedral


The Czech crown jewels returned to the Prague’s Saint Vitus’ cathedral on Wednesday, after having been on public display for the last 10 days. Over the last week and a half, more than 32,000 people visited Prague Castle to view the valuable artefacts, which only go on display on special occasions.

This year, the jewels were shown as part of a major exhibition marking the centenary of the establishment of Czechoslovakia. Seven representatives of the church and state gathered on Wednesday evening to return the crown jewels to their protective chamber within Saint Vitus’ Cathedral.
