More than Just a Castle

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

  • Skip the line: Visit the world’s largest castle complex through a an entrance only known by locals
  • The best of Prague: Admire the breathtaking St. Vitus Cathedral, our most beautiful church
  • Like a king: Visit the stunning throne hall in the Old Royal Palace
  • Hidden gems: Relax in the off-the-beaten path gardens of the Prague Castle that most visitors just pass by
  • A live spectacle: Witness the famous changing of the guard ceremony
  • Grand finale: Finish with a breathtaking view of the city from one of the Castle gardens
  • Small group: Explore Prague Castle in the friendly and intimate atmosphere of a small-sized group with a local guide
  • Extra bonus: Follow up with a free entry to the Charles Bridge Museum and a 50% discount for a boat ride on the Vltava River

From the Most Beautiful Church to a Secret Alchemy Lab

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. You’ll also have the unique opportunity to visit an underground alchemy lab that lay hidden for centuries.

Peak into a Medieval Torture Chamber

The Czechs used to be quite a ferocious crowd and wouldn’t stop short of rather drastic methods in dealing with their adversaries. Did you know they had a torture chamber within the Castle complex? Let’s take a look at some of the instruments they used there. 

Through the Picturesque Golden Lane to Amazing Views

Afterwards, it’s time to be wowed by the 900s Basilica of St. George, the old burial place of our ancient kings. And of course we can’t miss the fairy-taley street known as the Golden Lane! We’ll finish the tour with our favourite view of all Prague from yet another lovely Castle garden.

Remember that all our tours run in small-sized groups (or privately) and in the company of knowledgeable local guides with passion for history and sharing their insights. In case you find yourself interested in any particular part of the tour, there’s always room for questions and special attention.

Private Tour – A Personalized Experience

Would you like to explore the Castle within a family circle or a group of friends? Are you interested in any specific aspect of local culture? Book a private tour and enjoy all the exclusive advantages of having the guide just for yourself! You can start the tour at whatever time you wish, our guide will pick you up directly at your hotel/apartment.

What happens after the tour is up to you! Would you like to finish 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 late lunch/early dinner? Just let us know and we’ll make it happen.

What Else You Should Know

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, be aware of that and put an extra sweater into your backpack. But remember – it’s your vacation, so if you are cold during the tour, just say so to your guide. There’s always a cafe nearby where you can warm up and then go on with the tour.

  • Put on your walking shoes and proper clothing

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.

  • Curated tour of the world’s largest castle complex

Prague Castle gardens are closed every year from Nov 1 until March 31. 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 the hidden streets of an area called the New World.

The admission includes St. Vitus Cathedral, Old Royal Palace, Basilica of St. George and Golden Lane.

The Perfect Prague Castle Tour Aaron G

If you plan to visit the captivating and historic Prague Castle, doing so with a local guide who knows the history and the grounds as if it were her own will make for an unforgettable experience. Our tour with Michaela and Prague City Adventures was just that; highly personalized and curated for our interests, all the while covering the most beautiful, interesting, and hidden spots in the massive Prague Castle complex. She even timed our pace perfectly to coincide with events such as the changing of the guard and tolling of the bells. Michaela went above and beyond by showing us to our next destination after the tour, and left us with some helpful tips, recommendations and connections for the rest of our trip in Prague and beyond. I couldn't recommend this tour highly enough, definitely do not miss this when you travel to Prague!

The Highlight of Our Stay! Andy M

This was a highlight our trip to Prague and we would do it all over again if we are back in the city. Our guide, Misa, was charming, witty and so full of knowledge. There is so much you can learn in these historic sites and she managed to tell us the stories without making us feel overwhelmed. It was like walking around with an old friend, she was so warm and friendly. During and at the end of the tour she gave us recommendations of where to eat and some of the great little stores and quaint backstreets that make a visitor's time so special. Thank you Misa!!
