Petition for St. Vitus Cathedral

Some people do not agree with the fact that St. Vitus Cathedral is no longer the property of the state. A protest petition was launched in the underpass in the middle of Wenceslas Square and it will last until 15th November. The petition should support their appeal against the decision of the district court to give the cathedral to the catholic Church.

The cathedral is a place where crown jewels and the graves of Czech kings are held. Some rumours say that the Church plans to remove the grave of one of the most famous Czech rulers – king Jiri z Podebrad.

People also protest against the entrance fee that the Church started to collect this year. The free entrance is only for people who want to pray there (not from 10:00 to 14:00) and during the church services.
