Climb the hill towards Prazsky hrad or Prague castle and enjoy the views

This is one of the most popular landmarks of Prague and it is always very crowded. Walk uphill from the Malostranska metro station towards the Black Tower. Here you can enjoy spectacular views of the city. You enter the palace grounds via the Black Tower gate which is guarded by soldiers in blue ceremonial uniforms. Prazsky hrad is protected by an enormous defence wall which you see on one of the pictures. The grounds contain palaces, gates and churches, and is more than 1.000 years old.

Dit is één van de meest populaire bezienswaardigheden van Praag en het is er altijd zeer druk. Wandel de steile heuvel op vanaf het Malostranska metro station naar de Zwarte Toren. Hier heb je een ongelooflijk mooi zicht over de stad. Je komt de burcht binnen via de Zwarte Toren die wordt bewaakt door soldaten in een blauw ceremonieel uniform. Prazsky hrad wordt beschermd door een enorme stenen muur zoals je op de foto’s kan zien. Het terrein van de burcht omvat paleizen, poorten, en kerken, en is meer dan 1.000 jaar oud..

  7. Mooi serie weer Filip. Ik was in 1962 in Prag en kan mij helaas heel veel niet meer herinneren. Het zag er toen nog anders uit. Minder kleur. Voor straks slaap lekker, Dietmut

  18. The charm of Europe to me is to visit the older parts of the city. I can see why so many tourists think so too. The red roofs really add to the attractiveness of the city.
