If the visual appeal of this colossal stunner wasn’t enough to lure you here, you should know that according to the Guinness World Records, the Prague Castle has the largest castle complex in the world. Begin your tour with this prominent geo-political symbol of Czech Republic as a nation.
Within the Prague Castle complex is the largest place of worship in the city, St. Vitus Cathedral. The cathedral’s stunning architecture is sure to take your breath away. The cathedral was known to hold all royal coronations during the heydays of the Bohemian Empire.
The Prague Castle complex is massive enough to comfortably fit in another church not very far from the St. Vitus Cathedral. The current Romanesque architecture of St. George’s Basilica dates back to the time of reconstruction.

You can begin your second day by visiting the oldest bridge in the city, the Charles Bridge. Commissioned by Charles IV, this sandstone behemoth took a total of 45 years to be constructed in its entirety. At either ends of this bridge are two towers that are reminiscent of the days gone by.
The Old Town Hall was the administrative center of this part of the city, and houses the stunning Astronomical Clock. It may take you a few hours fully observe the intricate details of the astronomical clock, which is complete with the walk of the Walk of the Apostles and other Catholic sculptures. It is fascinating how this clock and its functionality has, ironically, survived the wrath of passing time.
There are no Prague Astronomical Clock showtimes as such. The clock chimes every hour from 9 AM - 11 PM.

The Týn Church is one of the finest examples of Gothic architecture. The church was built in the mid-14th century and it has remained almost unscathed since. Once you are done marvelling at the superlative architecture, you can discover the exhaustive collection of Gothic, Renaissance and Early Baroque works of art on display here. The entire experience at the Týn Church can be humbling and spiritual.
