Although the Guinness Book of Recordslisted Prague Castle as the largest ancient castle in the world up to July 2006, Malbork Castle occupies more than twice the area at 143,591 m2.
  • Charles Bridge, is a famous historic bridge that crosses the Vltava river in Prague, Czech Republic. Its construction started in 1357 under the auspices of King Charles IV, and finished in the beginning of the 15th century. As the only means of crossing the river Vltava (Moldau) until 1841, the Charles Bridge was the most important connection between Prague Castle and the city’s Old Town and adjacent areas. This “solid-land” connection made Prague important as a trade route between Eastern and Western Europe.
