Prague Castle sits high on hill overlooking the city of Prague. The castle can been seen from almost anywhere in the city. The Castle gates pictured here are crowned with copies of the Fighting Giants from the 18th century by Ignaz Platzer. The actual history of Prague was started at this historical site in the 9th century. Today the castle contains the seat of the President of the Republic. Also within the castle walls is the beautiful St. Vitas Cathedral. There is a changing of the guard each hour at the gates. You can spend several hours walking along inside the gates of the castle. My misfortune was to run out of film for my camera after entering the castle. When I added my new role it did not load properly and I lost an entire roll of pictures taken inside the castle.
