Are you a history lover?

Then we bet Prague Castle is on your must-see list and for a good reason. But beware – the name is a bit deceiving a this is not your ordinary Cinderella’s Palace! Prague Castle is a huge complex that consists of many palaces, churches, courtyards, panorma points and stunning gardens.

On this tour, we’ll get you the tickets to visit the Castle interiors in advance so that we’ll start exploring right away (well, to be fair after we go through the security check – but we’ll take you through a Castle entrance that only locals know so no long lines here). We’ll cover the magnificent St. Vitus Cathedral, the most beautiful church in our country. We’ll continue to the Old Royal Palace where besides other things, you’ll hear all about certain strange events that got repeated throughout our history so many times, there’s now an official term for them. Afterwards, it’s time to be wowed by the 900s Basilica of St. George, the old burial place of our ancient kings and at the end, we of course can’t miss the fairy taley Golden Lane and finish with our favourite view of all Prague from yet another lovely Castle garden.

Then it’s up to you! Would you like to finish the tour at the nearest metro/tram station? Or perhaps still up the hill at the Castle so you can continue exploring on your own? Or in a nearby restaurant for a delicious lunch? Just let us know and we’ll make it happen.

Tour Highlights:
– Visit the world’s largest castle complex (it is in the Guiness World Book of Records!) through a an entrance only known by locals
– Admire the breathtaking St. Vitus Cathedral
– Visit off-the-beaten path gardens of Prague Castle that most visitors just pass by
– Be astonished by the stunning throne hall in the Old Royal Palace
– See the famous changing of the guard ceremony

Additional Information:

There are compulsory security checks to the Prague Castle complex, please leave any potential guns, knives, pepper sprays etc. at home 🙂

Our tours run rain or shine. In case of rain, please dress accordingly and bring an umbrella or a raincoat with you. In winter, temperatures can get quite low, remember to put an extra sweater into your backpack. But this is your vacation, so if you are cold during the tour, say so to your guide. There’s always a cafe nearby where you can warm up and then go on with the tour.

Prague Castle complex has a lot of cobbled streets – please wear a decent pair of shoes. Walking involved in the tour may vary, but it is not a marathon. Still, please let us know in advance if you do have any mobility issues. We can always adjust the itinerary so that less walking is involved.

Also kindly note that the main attraction of Prague Castle is a religious site. Please ensure you wear appropriate clothing that covers your knees and shoulders.

Prague Castle gardens are closed from Nov 1 until March 31, so during the winter months, we’ll enter the Castle grounds through one of the 3 main entrances and instead of the gardens, we’ll show you hidden streets of an area called the New World.
