Old royal palace was a residence for kings in medieval ages. The palace has three floors – each from a different century. The last big changes were going on in late 1490s. Nowadays you can visit the large Vladislav hall where president of Czech republic gives medals and awards to significant people on Czech independece day, 28th October.
St. George basilica was the big and important church before St. Vitus cathedral started to be built in 1344. The first basilica was built already in 10th century. Today you can also buy a ticket for an evening concert taking place in this Romanesque basilica.
Golden lane is the most magical place at the castle. The true explanation of the name comes from goldsmiths that settled at that area in 16th century. Nevertheless, broadly spread legends situate alchymists and magicians who supposedly worked here with gold, potions, and elixirs. The Golden lane is accessible for free after 17.00.
The sites are open every day in 9.00 – 17.00. The last entry to cathedral is at 15.40. On Sunday morning is St. Vitus cathedral closed.
