The view of the city going up the steps to the castle.Prague Castle Quarter is really a little town itself. We haven't toured the castle itself yet (and not sure if we will.) All these pictures are in the Castle Quarter. These next few are of St. Vitus Cathedral.Basilica of St. George.A little house in Golden Lane, which used to house goldsmiths and now houses overpriced gift shops (a shame.)Castle guards.In the vineyard behind the castle with views out over the city.In the Castle Courtyard.Strahov Monastery (not in the Castle Quarter, but just up the hill.)
