We wanted to see "how the other half lived" in the Old Royal Palace. It was a waste of time in general as there was construction taking place in the main ballroom (I think that's what that room was called). Temperature was around 30 degrees...More

There is much to the original palace, the jousting tournaments of Vladislav Hall, the Diet where Bohemian nobles met with the king, and other historic rooms and chapels. However, the most important piece for world history is the Bohemian Chancellery where the 30 Years War...More

Part of the Prague castle but nothing much to see. Large empty rooms - no furniture at all. There is information about the various families ruling the area, but that’s about it.

Your experience in Prague will never be complete if
you do not see it from the top. Hillsides, stretched
from the west to the north, provide spectacular views
of greenish copper cupolas, narrow cobblestone
streets, bridges connecting both river banks and green
gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses.
Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history.
