Old Royal Palace

  Prague Castle ,   Hradčany         more than a year ago
One of the oldest and most impressive parts of the castle, the Old Royal Palace dates from 1135 and was the seat of Bohemian princes. From the 13th to the 16th century it was the king's palace. The magnificent Vladislav Hall was used for banquets, councils, coronations and even jousting. All presidents have been sworn in here, and this building was where the 1618 defenestration took place. The palace contains The Story of Prague Castle exhibition. Don't forget to have a look at the Rampart Gardens below.
