A super tour to learn about the castle, they take you to the most important points! The guide named Zlata is very good, her explanations are very clear and to the point. Thanks to her we learned a lot and in a very pleasant way!

Fantastic place to visit! Although this ticket doesn't allow you to go everywhere, so separate tickets need to be purchased. Would recommend getting another ticket for the St Vitus Cathedral tower.

Clear, fast and uncomplicated processing. After that everything went smoothly. I will definitely use Get Your Guide more often in the future.

online ticket is convenient to use, saves time on waiting in a que to buy it, and ecological as it saves paper and reduces waste.
