The Prague Casltle was founded by the Premyslid dynasty, more precisely by the prince Borivoj, around the year 880. It isn´t only a very important symbol of the Czech State, but also a cultural memorial and an object of the world cultural and natural heritage, the UNESCO. The Prague Castle is the largest castle complex in the world (its surface is 7 000 metres square), so it is written down in the Guinness World Records.
