Prague Castle
 
Prague Castle is the world’s largest castle development and is more like a small town than a defensive complex. It consists of a variety of buildings the most prominent of which being the Cathedral of St Vitus. Dating back to the 10th century the interior provides a fine example of Romanesque architecture and is the resting place of St Wenceslas.  Also to be found are a number of Royal Palaces, a Chapel, a Basilica, Monastery and gardens all of which have developed since 870 AD. In the 14th century Charles IV rebuilt the royal palace in Gothic style and strengthened the castle fortifications.  READ MORE
