    Guards to Prague castle

    Drawing the curiosity of this young girl, the castle guards are a classic welcome to this highlight of the city.

    Prague Castle - don't harass the guards; I'm not sure if they are bound by the same discretion as their British counterparts.

    Seat of the President of the Czech Republic.

    Today the Castle is the seat of the President of The Czech Republic, and it serves as the historical and political centre of both city and state.

    The changing of the guard.
    It takes place every hour on the hour, from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m.Each day at noon there is also a solemn fanfare.

    Try and get up to the castle gates at noon when the changing of the guard takes place. It's pretty cool to watch, even with the thousand or so tourists crammed inside the courtyard!

    If you can, it's difficult, get up close to the guards as they're walking around. Their uniforms are cool, and it's fun to see them scurry away from the crowds.

    Change of guards
    The guard is changed every hour from 5am to 11pm but the best time to go is at midday where there is an exchange of flags and a 15-minute fanfare.
