What makes this tour special

In this comprehensive three hour walking tour you will endeavour to uncover the fascinating history of one of  Prague’s most visited attractions- Prague Castle. On this tour, you will:

Fairytale Castle

Prague Castle looms above the Vltava's left bank, with its many beautiful fairytale like spires and towers. Within its walls lies a fascinating collection of historic buildings, museums and galleries that are home to some of the Czech Republic's greatest artistic and cultural treasures. Indeed Prague Castle is an absolute must for anyone visiting the Czech Republic.

Facets of Prague Castle

The castle has long been the seat of Czech monarchs as well as the official residence of the head of state. Its construction has been on a monumental scale and is famed across Europe; with Prince Bořivoj founding a fortified settlement here in the 9th century. It grew sporadically as monarchs made their own additions to the castle complex. There have been four major reconstructions, from that of Prince Soběslav in the 12th century to a classical facelift under Empress Maria Theresa (r 1740–80). 

Your expert city guide will help you to unravel the fascinating history of this enigmatic building in the heart of Prague. The Castle also provides a breathtaking, royal view over Charles Bridge, the Vltava river and the rest of Prague. Exploring the Castle complex will help us to discover more about the fascinating life of the Holy Roman Emperor, Charles IV, and his contributions to his Empire. 

Please note in the summer months, even with skip-the-line tickets, there are still queues which cannot be avoided.
