Id like to know how the Gothic design influenced the Polish Gothic architecture that you mention in the influence section of your article. St Vitus cathedral is a stone building and virtually all Polish Gothic cathedrals are built of brick, with very few exceptions. St. Vitus uses flying buttresses to support the vaulting while most Polish cathedrals have managed to build high vaulting without the use of a flying buttress

[Untitled][edit]

The original building was there from the 10th century. In the 14th century, only reconstruction began. Andres 17:07, 29 Jun 2004 (UTC)

Well, in fact it was not just reconstruction, the cathedral was thoroughly rebuilded. The older romanesque building was replaced with newer, gothic one. I mentioned it in the article.--Reo On 20:11, 5 December 2005 (UTC)
