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.

Marcela was very knowledgeable and agree lots of great information. In addition to the standard tour information she clearly had a passion for the history and knew much more than the tour could cover making her able to answer any questions that arose. She was clear as easy to understand and the headsets made her easy to hear from any position in the group (ona Saturday the castle was a bit crowded). Having a guided tour to help appreciate the details and understand the history made the castle a much more enjoyable experience!

Our tour was very good! We really liked it. Hana was very organised and onto it! She had all the tickets, she was ready was at the location on time and Hana was very knowledgeable! She had so many props to help educate us about all the history. It was a really good tour. The one thing that was odd was Hana did leave quite quickly and unexpectedly.

Our guide Marcella was exceptional! Her stories made everything we were seeing come to life and fit together. She showed us all the best of the massive amount of things to see and her personal insights made the tour so interesting. I wouldn’t do it any other way - she was a 10!!!
