Full description

Visiting Prague Castle is like walking into a fairy tale. See the highlights of the castle complex including St. Vitus Cathedral, the Old Royal Palace, St. George’s Basilica, and the Golden Lane.

The Castle contains an overwhelming amount of history and art, but thanks to your local expert guide, you'll navigate the castle grounds with ease.

Meet your guide in front of the Malostranská metro station near the Mánes Bridge. From there, take the tram up to Prague Castle. Once inside, your guide will give you headphones so that you can easily hear their commentary throughout the tour. Marvel at St. Vitus’ Gothic architecture. Spot the gargoyles that adorn the exterior of the church. Be dazzled by the Art-Nouveau stained glass window made by Czech artist Alfons Mucha. Admire the 14th-century mosaic of the last judgment.

See the tombs of St. Wenceslas and Charles IV, the baroque tomb of St. John of Nepomuk, and the Chapel of St. Wenceslas. Next, enter the Old Royal Palace. Stand under the massive vaulted ceiling of the Vladislav Hall.

Enter the chamber where the Defenestration of Prague occurred. Here the Czech Protestant aristocrats threw the Catholic governors of the Habsburg emperor and their secretary out the window, starting the Thirty Years War. Visit the Basilica of St. George. The stone walls and design of the basilica offer a counterpoint to the grandiosity of the castle. See the fragments of 12th-century frescoes and then walk up the double staircase where the remains of St. Ludmila lie.  Walk along the Golden Lane. The cottages in this alley were originally built for the castle’s sharpshooters, but later housed goldsmiths. In later centuries artists like Franz Kafka lived there.

Examine the reconstructed workshops and homes of the Golden alley. See how the working people of Prague lived in the shadow of the castle.

    We had an excellent tour of Prague Castle tour on Wednesday the 27th July. Our guide was Ross a Czech clearly very proud of his country & its history. He was very knowledgable & no question was too much trouble. The tour was an ideal length on what was quite a hot day. Recommended !

    The tour is great with the audio set which is so convenient given that it is a group tour. The guide was also very eloquent and knowledgeable. However, i expected so much to see at the Prague palace like the Al Hambra in Spain but was disappointed that there is really nothing to see in the palace except for the St. Vitus church. Other than that, nothing much interesting.

    Our guide Hanna was very sweet and very informative, she studied history and specialized in Czech castles in college, we enjoyed the guide very much and would definitely recommend anyone planning to visit the castle to book this guide, it wouldn't be the same exploring the castle without knowing the rich history behind it told by our guide Hanna.
