This morning, we are going to visit Prague Castle because its is a must see attraction of Prague.
Due to the location, history, and significance of this place, to avoid a long queue, I recommend you guys to visit this place as the first destination of the day.
After getting through a strict security check, we are in now.
This place has a strict security check from the front entrance because in addition of being Prague's major tourist attraction, now, it is also the work office of the President of the Czech Republic.
That blue building is where the President works. If the flag is up, it means the president is in the country.
When walking pass the blue building, we are going towards the road on the opposite side.
Do not get out yet, otherwise, the soldiers will ask you to queue again which is so super long. Let's walk and return back on the same route in order to visit Prague Castle.
First of all, let's hear the history of Prague Castle. It is considered one of the oldest castles in the world. It was built in the 9th century and expanded the territory until the 18th century. In addition, according to the Guinness Book, this castle is also ranked as one of the 10 largest castles in the world. Wow, let's check it out together, please follow me...
The first stop is the St. Vitus Cathedral which is one of the historical sites located in Prague Castle.
OMG....it's so stunningly beautiful. Look at the tourists, everyone is looking up and wow by what they see.
These windows are made of colored grass, making the entire hall looks so amazingly beautiful when the sun shines in.
I look up to enjoy this beautiful scene so much that my neck got a bit stiff.
Why are there so many tourists here? Because this church is not only used to perform religious activities, it also is a place for conducting country's important ceremony. For instance, the Queen's Coronation ceremony was held here when Prague was the center of the Roman Empire.
It is so beautiful that I can't stop taking photos. Now, let's enjoy the outside view.
Now let's move on. We actually stopped at the Old Royal Palace too. It is a building built for indoor horse racing. A historical event also takes place at the Old Royal Palace which leads to a long-running war, the Crusade War. Unfortunately, photography is not allowed inside.
Let's now move onto the Golden Lane.
Every house in this area is used to sell local products or acts as a museum to showcase way of people's life here. We can stop by to visit in every house.
Now, we walk through the Golden Lane and out of the castle. We will see the wall looking like the fort, it means that we are now at the end of the castle. Then, we walk along the road, through the park, and stop by for snack, fruit juice, and watch people walking pass by. It's such a chill time ^___^
Breads are made in cylinder shape. Outside is sparkling with sugar and cinnamon. It's freshly baked which smells so good. Inside, we could have any filling we want like mixed fruits, strawberry, or just leave it empty. It doesn't look big in the picture but it's actually very big and delicious.
Ok, now that we got energy, let's continue our walk. We are now at the Charles Bridge which is on the opposite side from this morning. The people are also much more now. Still, shops and art works are to be seen on the bridge.
And what I like the most is this musician group who perform melodious jazz, attracting a big crowd of audiences. Today, we have to say goodbye to Prague as we are moving towards Cesky Kumlov. If you haven't been there yet, please follow me, goodbye for now.
