Looming above the left bank of the Vltava River, Prague Castle claims status as the largest castle complex in the world. Dating back to the ninth century, the imposing structure occupies nearly 70,000 sq m (753,000 sq ft), its grounds so big they include four churches and four palaces, as well as five different gardens. Once the seat of power for kings of Bohemia and Holy Roman emperors, the castle now serves as the official residence of the country's president. The structure has undergone four major reconstructions since the 12th century, and its blend of architectural styles earned it a spot on the World Heritage List.

Really nice place, full of history and lovely garden. Worth the time for a visit. The views from up here are amazing! The church inside the Castle is very nice as well. Expect to see loads of military personnel walking around the castle's court. I would gladly come back!
This whole city is beautiful. Not one complaint. This place is a must visit for a short break or if you want to stay a while soaking up the culture. With this castle and the Charles Bridge being two of its many jewels
