On a hill above Lesser Town is the majestic and expansive Prague Castle. This 9th-century castle is steeped in history – holding court for the Kings of Bohemia and Holy Roman Emperor – and today still marks the official office of the President of the Czech Republic. It is one of the largest ancient castles in the world with grounds spread over 70,000 square metres. Thoroughly deserving of its UNESCO status, the Prague Castle is a must-visit destination. It’s easily possible to spend a few hours here visiting the grounds, buildings, moat, and even watching the changing of the guard. Prague Castle is a dominating feature of the city skyline set high upon the hillside of the Castle District (Hradčany). From below it appears to be its own city, with one of the defining buildings being the St. Vitus Cathedral – the grandest and most important church in the Czech Republic. St. Vitus Cathedral contains the burial place of many Bohemian Kings, Roman Emperors, and historic Czechoslovakian figures. Built over 1000 years ago, and then expanded and redesigned multiple times over generations, the cathedral now exhibits a variety of architectural styles from Romanesque to Gothic to Baroque. Top Tip: There are many impressive views from the ramparts and gardens of Prague Castle. There are panoramas from both ends of the grounds with The Black Tower offering excellent views over the old city. This is free to do and is best visited at sunset to make the most of this location.
