The castle is concerned about tourists and police having to stand out in the open air while queuing to enter, according to the head of the Office of the Prague Castle, Vratislav Minář.
Minář promised new glass awnings will be installed to protect the tourists and police in the areas where security searches take place. “Tourists will be more protected from the weather, and the police will also become more comfortable at work”, – said the representative of the Prague Castle. The security checks, brought in last year, will not undergo any changes.
Guests and local residents who want to get to the Castle will still be required to pass through metal detectors and to show the contents of personal belongings.
