This hilltop palace complex dates back to the year 880 and is one of the largest castles in the world, it is even listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the largest castle in the world. Additions have been made over the centuries, so you’ll find different architectural styles mixed together here.

St Vitus Cathedral, with its Gothic architecture, is the real eye-catcher. The popular ‘Golden Alley’ gives you an inside look at former worker’s cottages where goldsmiths lived, among others, from which this alley owes its name.
