Highlights of Prague Castle include:
a) Golden Lane - bright little houses, originally
for the castle gunners, then of the goldsmiths working for Emperor
Rudolph II and later to be shelter for the Prague poor - in fact
nothing to do really with alchemy i.e. the making of gold.
b) The Statues of the Giants
on the Entrance Gateway - the stone pillars on entrance to Prague
Castle are surmounted by two mighty sandstone statues of battling
giants by the sculptor Ignac F. Platzer from 1769.
c) The Chapel of St.
Wenceslas in St. Vitus Cathedral - completed in 1362 - 1364, this
is really the heart of the cathedral and a gem of Gothic art.
