The pediment carved with a relief scene of Christ's Crucifixion over the door of St. Vitus Cathedral's main entrance on its west-facing side is one of the many significant features of the exterior of Prague's Castle Hradčany.
At first glance the western façade of St Vitus Cathedral (Katedrála svatého Víta), which looms above the entrance to the Third Courtyard of the castle, appears impressively Gothic, but in fact the triple doorway dates only from 1953. It was one of the last parts of the church to be completed. However, the original medieval plans were used, so its relatively young age is not obvious.
