The decades-long litigations over the St Vitus Cathedral, the dominant structure in the middle of the Prague Castle, are over. The following two traditional propositions of the Church about the ownership were agreed upon and a new one was added:
- The cathedral belongs to God.
- The cathedral belongs to itself.
- In the material world, the cathedral belongs to the Czech Republic.
The state and the church will be helping each other so that the "metropolitan church" may be used for all the expected purposes - tourism, masses, and so on. As a bonus, the church will be allowed to use a few surrounding buildings that have exclusively belonged to the state so far but that may be very useful for the liturgical activities.
When the two right people meet, seemingly eternal but unnecessary confrontations may sometimes go away.
