The Prague Castle photographed on August 15, 2006, while I attended the International Astronomical
Union's (IAU) General Assembly meeting.
  This castle in Prague dates back to the 9th century (870),
and is where kings and
emperors have lived, and more currently, presidents of Czechoslovakia and the
Czech Republic
have had their offices.  The Bohemian Crown Jewels are archived here.  Here the castle
is seen from the southeast, looking across the Vltava River.  The castle is said to be the largest complex
of its kind in the world, measuring some 1870 x 426 feet.  The dominant feature is St. Vitus Cathedral.
