The Beautiful Prague Castle in the Czech Republic
Prague Castle, perched on a hill across the river from the city center, throws an intimidating air over its surroundings. The castle is an extraordinary assemblage of structures dating from the ninth to the fourteenth centuries.
Stroll over the ornate 14th-century Charles Bridge spanning the Vltava River and head up the hill to wander the narrow, twisty streets in the castle complex. The castle is one of the largest in the world, and around almost every corner is a historical building, church, or open square.
