The main south tower of the St. Vitus Cathedral in Prague was built in several building phases and amongst other towers and steeples in Prague the tower is recognized as the "Queen". The tower with a square ground plan (14x14 m) rises up to a height of 55 m.
The walls of the first belfry are decorated with ruptured cuspidate windows. The large window situated in the south facia of the tower is covered with a sumptuous goldleaf window screen and, above it, the letter "R", the monogram of Rudolf II, Holy Roman Emperor.
