    One more day in the Golden City

    May 30, 2018 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    The city centre of Prague is not so big, so you can visit most interesting things on foot.
    St. Vitus Cathedral, Old Royal Palace, exhibition "The Story of Prague Castle", St. George's Basilica, Golden Lane with Daliborka Tower, Rosenberg Palace are all part of the visit to the Prague Castle. Legends say that Golden Lane’s trinket shops were once home to alchemists.
    It is a UNESCO monument with a tradition of more than 1000 years that was most likely founded in around 880 by Prince Bořivoj of the Premyslid Dynasty (Přemyslovci). According to the Guinness Book of World Records, Prague Castle is the largest coherent castle complex in the world, with an area of almost 70,000 m².

    But later on, when we headed to the Astronomical clock all of us were extremely disappointed because it was completely covered because of the cleaning and maintaining that was going on... Lucky the ones who go there in August... it will be done by then :(

    For the rest of the afternoon, we decided to use the 22 until the end station... It was really far away. Wolfi could "rest" a bit on the way there!!! But this was the chance to see a bit beyond the Golden city and see the Soviet presence on the outskirts of the city.
