At the lowest point lies the Well tower and Burgrave's palace; from there youll walk up toward the majestic Imperial palace, made up of five floors. Then continue even further toward the Marian tower. Finally, you will discover the monumental 197-foot (60-meter) Great tower, located at the highest point of the castle.
The castles interior is still decorated with a unique array of wall paintings that date back to the 14th century. In the Chapel of the Holy Cross youll find a collection of 129 Master Theodoric panel paintings, the largest collection of its kind in the world. Another large gallery contains portraits of Czech rulers and a replica of the Crown of St Wenceslas, the coronation crown of the Holy Roman Emperor.
