Castle District, Prague

4.7
#2 of 11 in Neighborhoods in Czech Republic
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.

  • You have to climb. It is very interesting and very nice garden. It has panoramic views by the Moldovan and the entire city.

  • But I feel there are many buildings including the old town historic Castle District is more strongly that impression. Charles Bridge, just inside the gate, and a gentle slope continues towards the Castle. Both sides of the paved road is a souvenir or just are side by side. Even if it sees what building enjoyed slowly and tastefully.

  • After the Old Town is the second thing that you absolutely must see. Take almost a day to do things slowly and visit the different exhibitions that include inside. I personally loved the Golden Lane where lived the archers in the Castle.
