Visit Prague Castle
Everything in the city radiates from the Prague Castle which was found in the 10th century and was the royal residence. Since 1918, it has been the seat of the presidents of Czechoslovakia and the Czech Republic.
The guards of the entrance give you an immediate sense of the regal nature of the place that radiates more than a thousand years of history. Saint Vitus Cathedral is a breathtaking example of ecclesiastical architecture. The very creative Charles IV initiated construction and a marvelous chapel is consecrated to the country’s patron saint, Wenceslaus.
The emperor enlisted the talents of the leading stone masons and master builders to create a building that would reflect status of the archbishop of Prague. Guided tours and a variety of languages illuminate the significance of the symbology of the intricately crafted statuary.
The royal guard is a sight to be hold near the Basilica of Saint George and other castle courtyards. Everywhere, the royal residence gives evidence of detailed design; but, none as imaginative as the winding alley of around 16 small houses that are clinging to a former castle wall. This area now houses shacks and has come to be known as the Golden Lane. The terraces of the Prague castle reveal stunning vistas of the city of Prague.
