St. Vitus Cathedral holds a unique sacred relic from a Saint: St. John of Nepomuk’s tongue is said to be incorruptible and in fact still living. Saint John was a preist who heard confession from a queen. The king demanded he tell him all of the queen’s secrets, and when he wouldn’t, Saint John was tortured to death and cast into a river. When they found his body a year later, it was a drought that was heaven sent punishing the King for Saint John’s death. He was buried in a silver tomb, where 300 years later it would be opened to find the tongue.
