Prague Castle is perhaps the most iconic testament to the history of the city. Since it was first built in the 9th century, the elaborate castle has been home to Kings, Emperors and Presidents.
Today, the Prague Castle is home to the Czech crown jewels and draws visitors keen to view the castle's stately interior from all over the globe.
