Charles IV.

the beloved and famous Czech king and Roman Emperor Charles IV. had the Castle rebuilt for him and his wife. The castle became a seat of the Holy Roman Emperor and the construction of the St. Vitus Cathedral started. Since then there were many reconstructions, the last one in the 20th century. 

Present

Before, the entry to most of castle sites was restricted. You are now free to visit the sites including the Royal Garden, Ballgame Hall, the South Gardens, or the Imperial Stables.
