Photographer's Note

Prague Castle

Another famous part of Prague. This photo was taken at the square Hradčanské náměstí in front of Prague Castle. I was here at several moments and it was hard to choose a photo, because each time the light was different, but in the end I preferred this one.

Prague Castle (Pražský hrad) is a castle complex, whose history began in the 8th century. It used to be the seat of the kings of Bohemia, Holy Roman Emperors and nowadays it serves as the official office of the President of Czechia. The complex consists of several palaces, churches, gardens and other buildings. The area is dominated by St Vitus Cathedral (Katedrála svatého Víta), which was founded in 930. The current church dates back to 1344. Its three largest towers are seen in the background of this photo. The white building in front of them is the Archbishop’s Palace.
