There were religious conflicts that resulted in a few Catholic priests being thrown out of the windows of the castle.

Hitler assigned Reinhard Heydrich the task of butchering Prague people during the Holocaust. But a couple of Czech soldiers took it into their own hands to take him down in order to end his bloody reign.

Prague Castle is the largest castle in the world and has made it into the Guinness Book of World Records. 753,474 square feet.

Religious persecution dating back to 303 surrounds the castle, memorialized by statues, dancing celebrations and even the hidden arm of St. Vitus in St. Vitus cathedral. The cathedral hosts an amazing treasury of history too.

There is so much to see and learn about Prague Castle, including the fact that Kafka spent time writing there.
