St. Vitus Cathedral is the largest and the most important temple in Prague. Apart from religious services, coronations of Czech kings and queens also took place here.

Old Royal Palace

The original residence building, mostly wooden, was built at Prague Castle already at the turn of the 9th and 10th century. Its exact location is not documented. It was prince Soběslav in the 12th century who had a stone Romanesque palace built right next to a new fortification wall. Remains of it have been preserved in the underground till the present times.

St. George's Basilica

St. George's Basilica originated as the second church at Prague Castle. Only parts of the building, founded about 920 by Prince Vratislav I have been preserved. When the convent of Benedictine nuns was founded in 973, the church was enlarged and reconstructed.

The Golden Lane

The Golden Lane originated after the construction of a new northern wall of the Castle. The area of the northern bailey was used for the building of modest dwellings, which are now the last remainder of the small-scale architecture of Prague Castle.

Slow walking trough the most beatiful town all over the world, with stops for refreshment. Stories, architecture, art in one day. We will see many nice places, for which there is no place in this short description. Prague is recommended to show round on foot, there are narrows streets, not alloved for cars, sights are not much spreaded. During whole day we will walk about 4 km. You must see - tour. I am looking forward to discover beauties of Prague and Czechia.
