This sightseeing walking tour in Prague is focused on the Prague Castle. It begins at a tram stop near the north gate of the Castle, which is guarded by two members of the Castle’s Guard. The Prague Castle was most likely founded in around 880 A.D. The castle is the largest coherent castle complex spreading nearly on 70,000 square meters in the Czech Republic. It is a UNESCO World Heritage site, which accommodates a large-scale composition of palaces and ecclesiastical buildings of various architectural styles. These styles range from Roman-style buildings built in the 10th century through Gothic modifications in the 14th century and significant alteration in the 18th century to more recent extensive renovations at the time of the First Republic in 1918 to 1938.
We enter all three courtyards of the castle and the cathedral but we do not enter the rooms in the castle building.
In the heart of the castle, there is the Cathedral of St. Vitus, founded by the Emperor Charles IV in 1344. In spite of the endeavours of some sovereigns to secure the continuation of the construction work, the cathedral remained uncompleted for whole centuries. It was not until the latter half of the 19th century that the Union for the Completion of the Building of St. Vitus Cathedral group began the repair of the original part and the completion of the building of the cathedral in Neo-Gothic style.
