The Prague Castle is the biggest castle complex in the world. You will get captivated by its splendour 

Feel the historical and magical atmosphere of this major symbol of the Czech land. The biggest castle complex in the world covers over 7 hectares (18 acres). Take a walk around the overwhelming St. Vitus Cathedral, ancient St. George´s Basilica, explore the castle courtyards, palaces, museums and gardens. 

We reckon you can spend here easily all day and admire the astonishing beauty of place which has been the seat of Czech kings, emperors and presidents for thousand years.

St. Vitus Cathedral

the whole castle grounds are dominated by magnificent St. Vitus Cathedral, which is said to be one of the most stunning churches in Europe. You can admire the breathtaking gothic architechture of the first temple in the country and discover the important symbols of Czech statehood - the Czech Crown Jewels.

St. George´s Basilica

just behind the St.Vitus Cathedral is the hidden pearl of Czech romanesque architecture and the second oldest Prague church, beautiful St. George´s Basilica. Follow your path and find the hidden Golden lane with its small coulourfull houses offering many souvenirs and Czech traditional handmade crafts. It used to be a "Goldsmith's Lane" due to many goldsmiths residing in the houses. And finally, relax and enjoy wonderful views at St. Wenceslas Vineyard or at the Royal Gardens.

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

nowadays, the Czech president governs the Czech country from the Prague Castle. After the Velvet Revolution and fall of the communist regime, Vaclav Havel, the first Czech president opened the castle to citizens. 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.
