The Prague Castle In the City of Prague, Czech Republic



I took this photograph in December 2008 when my wife and I visited the Prague Castle. We were visiting the Czech Republic on vacation from our home in Arizona.

During its history, the castle was the home of various Emperors of the Holy Roman Empire, Czech kings, and Presidents of Czechoslovakia. During World War II, it was occupied by the Reich Protector of Bohemia and Moravia. This castle is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as being the largest ancient castle in the world and is listed as a World Heritage Site. It is also the home of the Czech crown jewels.
