The Prague Castle (Prazsky Hrad) is something that can't be missed - literally. The most famous historical landmark of the city, the castle dates back to the 9th century, though it was expanded upon until the 18th. The castle itself houses a complex of sights to explore. There's a fairly costly tour that includes the Old Royal Palace, The Story of Prague Castle permanent exhibition, St. George's Basilica, Convent of St.George - National Gallery, Golden Lane with Daliborka tower, Prague Castle Picture Gallery. We recommend seeing the St.Vitus Cathedral, the interior of the castle itself, and the Golden Lane if you only have a limited amount of time at the castle, or if you want to save a few crowns by not seeing the crown jewels.
be prepared for long lines, especially to see the cathedral. come early in the morning or in the off season or face huge crowds
