Operation Eurotrip Part 7: Prague Day 3

The final day in Prague we used to visit Prague Castle, which has historically housed the offices of kings of Bohemia, Holy Roman Emperors and today houses the office of the president of the Czech Republic, as evidenced by the Czech military police guarding the place.

The most prominent part of the complex is St Vitus Cathedral which towers above everything else.

The cathedral was started in the 1300s but was not finished till the 1920s.

We also toured the old palace but no pictures since you had to buy an extra license on top of the entry fee. Here are some from the courtyard.
