First courtyard

  Prague Castle ,   Hradčany         more than a year ago
Pause at the castle gates to admire the soldiers' uniforms (designed by the wardrobe designer of the film Amadeus), and hopefully see the changing of the guard. Then move into the courtyard flanking the presidential rooms, which are not open to the public. These are numerous and include the Spanish Hall, once the venue for meetings of the Czechoslovak Communist Party. As you walk through the archway, the steps on your right are where many of the official greetings are made to visiting heads of state.



Prague Castle is open from 06:00-22:00 but the historical buildings only from 09:00-17:00 (09:00-16:00 Nov-Mar).
