Castle District, Prague
(4.7/5 based on 4,800+ reviews on the web)
Overlooking the city from its high point on the left bank of the Vltava River, Castle District contains one of Europe's largest medieval castle complexes. An independent borough until 1784, this neighborhood consists of historical palaces and medieval churches, which guard some of the country's greatest cultural and artistic treasures. Although not as old as Prague's famed old town, the district remains one of the most photographed urban areas in Europe, its centuries-old spires and towers appearing on countless postcards, posters, and tourist brochures. While at the southern end of the district's central square, point your camera toward the rooftops of the old town, visible on the other side of the river. Put Castle District on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Prague family vacation planner.
