Prague castle area, the 3rd courtyard of the Palace

We have already written a few articles of the Prague castle area because it is so big and fascinating. The palace itself is enormous as you can see on this courtyard and which is only one of the 4 palace inner squares. It is also here that the Saint Vitus cathedral is located. The palace balcony is decorated with statues holding light balls, an artistic touch just below the Czech flag that blows in the wind. A little bit further, you also find a large Obelisk made out of one piece of granite.

We hebben reeds enkele artikelen geschreven over de Praagse Burcht omdat het zo groot en fascinerend is. Het paleis zelf is enorm zoals je op het binnenplein kan zien en dit is slechts één van de vier paleispleinen. Hier is ook de Sint Vitus kathedraal gevestigd. Het balkon is gedecoreerd met beelden die verlichting vasthouden, een vleugje artistiek onder de in de wind hangende Tsjechische vlag. Een beetje verder vind je ook een hoge Obelisk gemaakt uit één stuk graniet..
