Czech state still fights for St Vitus Cathedral

Despite the decision of the municipal court in Prague, which decided that the cathedral belongs to the Church, the state still refuses to accept the verdict and plans an appeal to the Supreme Court of the Czech Republic.

According to the municipal court the jewel of Prague Castle was never properly transferred into the state ownership, which should have reportedly been attempted in the fifties. The cathedral thus according to the decision never stopped belonging to the Church.

The dispute lasts already more than ten years. The state is determined to address the Supreme Court since it believes the municipal court should not have dealt with Church’s legal charge in the first place because of the distinction between the executive power and the judiciary. The appeal to the Supreme Court is the last chance to change the current decision. No matter how the dispute ends, the cathedral should still remain open for the visitors.
