A day of free entry at the Prague Castle
18.4.2017 | seolight
The 13th of May marks the 300th anniversary of the birth of Maria Theresa, a queen who was the only female ruler of the Czech monarchy. Aside from various reforms which she brought to the country, she also introduced the labeling of houses with numbers and made education compulsory. Furthermore, the Prague Castle was rebuilt to its current form under her reign which is why this day will mark the beginning of its summer season this year.
The best thing is that it will do so by opening its most important venues for free from 10:00 to 17:00! These include the Old Royal Palace which is the original residence building and was built at the end of the 9th century, a permanent exhibition about the castle’s history called The Story of Prague Castle, the largest temple in Prague – the St. Vitus Cathedral; St. George’s Basilica, out of which only some parts have been preserved, the Golden Lane, which is a historic narrow street; and the Rožmberk Palace, a renaissance palace which has been rebuilt in the 18th century to become the Institute of Noblewomen that currently hosts an exposition about the life of Maria Theresa.
The day of free entry will include an accompanying program, such as a theatre play on the third courtyard of the castle, which will also be dedicated to Maria Theresa.
The Prague Castle, being the largest ancient castle in the world according to the Guinness Book of Records, has the area of about 72 000 m2. It was built in the 9th century when it became the home of Czech monarchs, it was the main residence of the Holy Roman Empire twice and since 1918 the President lives there. It is therefore the oldest castle in which someone is still living as well.
When visiting it, you cannot miss the treasury collection at the St. Vitus Cathedral, the Picture Gallery with European painting from the 15th – 18th century and the stunning Royal Garden. It was created in the 16th century and Queen Anna’s summer palace can be found there together with many sculptures, fountains and an orangery.
