"Prague from the Rock" Castle Tip by mbsimjam
Castle, Prague: 261 reviews and 477 photos
Strolling through Prague Castle is much different than places like Blarney, Neuschwanstein, Edinburgh, etc. It is, by far, the largest castle I have been in. It is more of a walled town than a castle in my opinion, with about 6 or 7 components, each serving a seperate purpose, and each being constructed in different eras.
This makes for a very interesting afternoon, as you explore not only the history of the use status of the castle, but you also go on a historical tour of several architectural periods.
The centerpiece of the castle is St. Vitus Cathedral, with is a gothic monster! It towers over the remaining 3 churches, which are all constructed in different architectural styles.
There are also several palaces to explore, as well as the Golden Lane, which is a small trip into a fairy tale.
