Start your tour of Prague Castle
at the Gate of Giants, or Giants' Gate. This gate opens into the enormous Castle Square. Its main feature is a pair of giants, one raising a knife, the other a club, against defeated enemies. The original 18th century sculptures have been replaced by more weather-resilient copies. The fence on either side of the gate showcases symbolic figures important to Czech heritage.
Pass through the Gate of Giants into the First Courtyard of Prague Castle.
