As one of the city’s most popular tourist attractions, a visit to Prague is not complete without exploring Prague Castle. However, be prepared to spend a whole day here as Prague Castle is said to be one of the largest castles in the world, founded in the 9th century by Prince Bořivoj of the Premyslid Dynasty. Covering more than seven hectares, this UNESCO World Heritage site is home to three courtyards, art galleries, magnificent gardens, elegant palaces and ecclesiastical buildings of Romanesque and Gothic styles. Visit some of the historical buildings including the Old Royal Palace, St. Vitus Cathedral, St. George’s Basilica, Bohemian Chancellery, Vladislav Hall and St. Wenceslas Chapel. Stroll along the Golden Lane, a pretty cobblestone street lined with 16th-century houses and watch the Changing of the Guards in the first courtyard at noon, complete with exchanging of flags and a trumpet call.
