  • The secrets of Prague Castle

    2010-08-27

    While in the Czech Republic, travelers should definitely pay a visit to the city of Prague. And while in the city, it'll be difficult to miss the Prague Castle, recognized by Guinness as the largest ancient castle in the world.

    Much of this area is open to the public, and it's a great place to start learning about the history of the city and country while viewing treasures like the Bohemian Crown Jewels. There are multiple palaces within the castle's walls, and even if certain areas aren't open, they're worth a look simply for the architectural majesty.

    But travelers shouldn't visit the fortress without paying special attention to one building - Lobkowicz Palace. The former home of a Bohemian noble family, the palace now hosts a stunning collection of the family's most prized possessions.

    Apparently, being a Bohemian noble nets you some pretty great stuff. There are paintings here from the "Old Masters," musical manuscripts from Beethoven and Mozart, an extensive collection of arms and armor spanning multiple centuries and a private library filled with first editions.

    After taking in the collection, guests can dine at the palace's very own critically-acclaimed restaurant.
