Prague Castle and St. Vitus Cathedral, Prague, Czech Republic (UNESCO)

Awesome nightview of the St. Vitus Cathedral and the Prague Castle in the foreground sent by Adéla for a Postcrossing UNESCO Round Robin.
The cathedral is the seat of the archbishop of Prague and was built in gothic style. It is located within the Prague Castle and is the biggest and most important church of the country. The Prague Castle was the seat of the Kings of Bohemia and the Holy Roman Emperors and also the Presidents of Czechoslovakia and the Czech Republic had their offices there. In a hidden room inside the castle the Bohemian crown jewels are being kept.
The Guinness book of records names Prague Castle as the biggest ancient castle in the world.
