Prague Castle is the largest castle complex in the world according to the Guiness Book of Records. For over a thousand years it’s dominated west side of the Vltava river, and seated Bohemian dukes, kings, Holy Roman emperors, and, finally, Czech presidents. Nowadays, Prague Castle is the number one visited place in the capital.
Do we go inside of the castle? YES!
We take the, so-called, “B Ticket” and explore the castle from the bottom to the top. Interiors and exteriors. You will see St. Vitus Cathedral, as well as the tomb of St. Wenceslas, the grandiose Vladislav Hall, the famous defenestration room, St. George’s Basilica, and the picteuresque Golden Lane. The only interior part you won´t see are the presidential quarters (unfortunatelly, Czech president doesn´t like people from Prague and he won´t let us visit, he is missing out 😉).
