Full description
To begin your tour, you’ll meet your guide in the very heart of the city under the Old Town’s tower of Charles Bridge. Start your tour with a romantic stroll across the world-famous medieval bridge. Enjoy a breathtaking panorama of Prague Castle from the river before you rest your feet a bit by taking a tram and enjoying the beautiful views on the way up to the Castle.

In Prague Castle, the guide will give you a short introduction to the history and present use of the Castle as well as further recommendations for your individual visit. After your questions have been answered, you will get your ticket so that you can explore the Castle’s interiors at your own pace.

First, you can visit St. Vitus Cathedral, a masterpiece of European Gothic architecture. On the way to the Old Royal Palace don’t miss the stunning Last Judgment Mosaic from 14th century above the southern entrance to the Cathedral. Next, visit St. George's Basilica, the oldest surviving church within the Castle, and admire its Romanesque architecture from 12th century. Then walk further to enter the picturesque Golden Lane with many tiny houses built for the royal guards in the late 16th century. Your ticket is valid for two days and allows you to enter each of the four sights once.
