If the visual appeal of this colossal stunner wasn’t enough to lure you here, you should know that according to the Guinness World Records, the Prague Castle has the largest castle complex in the world. Begin your tour with this prominent geo-political symbol of Czech Republic as a nation.
Within the Prague Castle complex is the largest place of worship in the city, St. Vitus Cathedral. The cathedral’s stunning architecture is sure to take your breath away. The cathedral was known to hold all royal coronations during the heydays of the Bohemian Empire.
The Prague Castle complex is massive enough to comfortably fit in another church not very far from the St. Vitus Cathedral. The current Romanesque architecture of St. George’s Basilica dates back to the time of reconstruction.
