Prague is dominated by the exclusive landmark of Pražský hrad (Prague Castle), the vast hilltop complex that looks out over the city centre from the west bank of the River Vltava. Site of a Slav settlement in the seventh or eighth century AD, there’s been a castle here since at least the late ninth century, and since then whoever has had control of the Hrad has exercised authority over the Czech Lands.
Still serving for Czech President
It continues to serve as the seat of the president, though the public are free to wander round from the early hours until late at night, since the castle is also home to several museums and galleries.

Visiting the Prague Castle
You can wander freely through most of the streets, courtyards and gardens of the castle and watch the changing of the guard without a ticket. For the sights within the castle (excluding the cathedral) there are two main types of multi-entry ticket available: the velký okruh or long tour (350Kč), which gives you entry to most sights, including the Old Royal Palace, the Basilica and Convent of sv Jiří, the Prague Castle Picture Gallery and the Zlatá ulička; and the malý okruh or short tour (250Kč), which only covers the Old Royal Palace, the Basilica of sv Jiří and the Zlatá ulička. Tickets are valid for two days and available from several places, including the main information centre in the third courtyard, opposite the cathedral, where you can also rent an English-language audioguide (200Kč for 2hr).
The most popular destinations for daily trips are the castles of Karlštejn and Konopiště, both surrounded by beautiful wooded countryside. Alternatively you can head north, away from the hills and the tourist crowds, to the wine town of Mělník, perched high above the confluence of the Vltava and Labe (Elbe) rivers. Further north is Terezín, the wartime Jewish ghetto that is a living testament to the Holocaust. One of the most popular day-trips is to the medieval silver-mining (area) town of Kutná Hora, 60km to the east of Prague, which boasts a glorious Gothic cathedral and a macabre ossuary.
Karlštejn Castle is one of the most places near by Prague. If you are visiting Prague for more than 4 days you should definitely visit Karlstein! and hike around the castle! it’s beautiful colourful and easy hiking road!
History of The Castle
It was established by the Czech king and Roman emperor Charles IV as a place to store the royal treasures, collections of holy relics and the crown jewels. The very impressive layout of the castle buildings from the settlement outside the castle walls right up to the Imperial Palace and the towers rising over it will captivate you with their ingenuity. In the castle Chapel of the Holy Cross, you will then merely contemplate the pictures of Master Theodoric in silent wonder. Set out for the most-visited castle in the Czech Republic and discover the treasures it has hidden for centuries! (wikipedia.com)

History of Divoka Sarka Park
Around the 6th century the Slavs came to this area. In the 7th to 9th centuries was above the Džbán gorge a Slavic settlement, with an area of approximately 20 ha (3 ha fortified settlement).
A gorge in the area is named after the female warrior Šárka, who, according to Ancient Bohemian Legends, threw herself to her death from its cliffs after betraying her lover Ctirad during the Maidens’ War.

In that park still the black woodpecker lives.
There is a lake Džbán (The Pitcher) on the border of the Divoká Šárka reserve area and a public swimming pool located in the middle of the reserver. The water of the pool is supplied by clean and fresh water from the Šárka spring creek that passes through the park and the lake.
