In the centre of Prague’s beautiful Old Town is the sprawling Prague Castle, the city’s most popular tourist attraction. Spread over 570m of land, the castle encompasses numerous historical and religious monuments, as well as a series of interesting shops along ‘Golden Lane’ that are great fun to explore.
No visit to the castle is complete without a trip to the stunning St. Vitus Cathedral and St George’s Basilica. If you’ve got time, you might want to take a look at some of the artwork on exhibition in St George’s Convent, too. The nearby Toy Museum is also well worth a look, and there’s some fantastic food and drink on offer in locations spotted around the castle complex.
Parts of the castle have been reconstructed or added to over the years, and this accounts for the wide variety of architecture on offer – including designs inspired by the Romanesque and Neo-Gothic eras. Be sure to take your camera with you – there’s almost too much beauty to take in!
