Visit Prague Castle

Prague Castle – this castle holds a number of records. It is the largest castle in the world, entered in the Guinness Book of Records and the most visited Czech monument among tourists. It is also undoubtedly the most beautiful castle in the Czech Republic, so visiting it is a ‘duty’ for all tourists.
It is impossible to see all of Prague Castle in one day. There are a number of tours available which you can visit and there are also a number of permanent and temporary exhibitions to be found.

The Golden Lane
The most romantic place in Prague Castle, and possibly the whole of Prague, is the Golden Lane where Emperor Rudolph II’s alchemists used to live. Craftspeople and artists have today returned to the lane, so it is possible to look at and buy their products.

Prague Castle Picture Gallery
Works of art from famed collections of Emperor Rudolph II – works from Titian, von Aachen and Rubens – more than 100 paintings from a total number of 4,000 pictures can be found here.

The Powder Tower
The Powder Tower, which used to serve defensive purposes, was an alchemy laboratory under Rudolph II. You will be sure to notice the Palace Guards on entering the castle. The changing of the guards, a great tourist attraction, takes place every hour. Every day at noon a changing of the guards with full pomp and a military parade is held.
The Royal Summer Palace of Queen Anne
The Summer Palace is one of the most beautiful examples of Renaissance architecture in Central Europe. You are only able to look inside when one of its many exhibitions are taking place.
Going to the Summer Palace, you will notice the bronze Singing Fountain. It got its name because if you put your ear to the bottom of the bowl, you can hear the note ‘a’. The sound is also reminiscent of the distant ringing of bells.
