Residence of the Czech Republic President in Prague Castle

To our days the Royal Castle, which is now the residence of the President of the Czech Republic, survived as a group of modern buildings with uniform facades. However, for several centuries it was an impregnable Gothic fortress. The first settlement appeared there in 6 century. 

The above mentioned uniform facades were designed by an Italian-Austrian architect Nicolò Pacassi from 1753 through 1775. But these facades cover the buildings of various periods and architectural styles, which is evidenced by roofs and entrances located in different places. The today Prague Castle is one of the largest castles in the world. 

The honor guard post is in front of the entrance of the Prague Castle. The ceremonial change of honor guard takes place daily at midday while the regular change of honor guard takes place every hour.
