Czech Republic: Prague Castle

On Wednesday I got two postcards: one from the Czech Republic and one from Hong Kong.

The card from the Czech Republic shows Prague Castle. Prague Castle is the largest castle in the World. It was founded in the 9th century and since then various architects of various architectural styles contributed to the appearance of the castle. For centuries it was the seat of the Kings of Bohemia, two Holy Roman Emperors and the Presidents of Czechoslovakia. Today it is the seat of the Czech President and a popular destination for tourists.

With a nice matching stamp:
Anemone (issued 29-09-2010)
Centenary of Czechoslovak Stamps - Mucha's Prague Castle (issued 21-02-2018)

Thank You very much Klara!
