One of the finest jewels of architecture of the city is the Prague Castle, which was founded around the year 880 by Prince Borivoj of the house of Premyslides. The early medieval castle site was fortified with a moat and rampart of clay and stones. The first walled building was the church of Our Lady. Other churches, dedicated to St. George and St. Vitus, were founded in the first half of the 10th century.
From the 10th century Prague Castle was not only the seat of the head of state, the princes, kings, and later the Czech presidents, it was also the seat of the highest representative of the church, the Prague bishop. The first convent in Bohemia was also founded in the grounds of Prague Castle, next to the church of St. George, the convent was for the order of Benedictine nuns. The basilica of St. Vitus, built on the site of the original rotunda, has been the main castle church since the 11th century. It is here that the relics of the patron saints of the land: St. Vitus, St. Wenceslas and St. Adalbert, were kept. For more information on the Prague Castle, see www.hrad.cz.
