Prague Castle and Castle District Tour Including One-Way Transfer
US$13.84
Overview
Prague Castle is a must-see during any stay in Prague, and this tour covers it in a convenient three hours. Ride a minivan up to the hilltop UNESCO-listed castle — the world's largest — and walk around its treasures and surrounding Castle District. Stroll through the castle courtyards past palaces and monuments, visit St. Vitus Cathedral and Golden Lane as your guide shares their history, and absorb bird's-eye views down over the city.
What to Expect
Meet your guide in central Prague, and set off by comfortable, air-conditioned minivan. As you travel, hear an introduction to Prague’s UNESCO-listed castle, the world’s largest, as a prelude to your tour.

Hop out at the hilltop 12th-century Strahov Monastery, one of the Czech Republic’s oldest monasteries, and hear about its history and famous brewery, a producer of some of the country’s best beers.

Then, absorb the panoramas over Prague from a viewpoint before descending by foot to the nearby Castle District (Hradčany). See the landmarks of this charming area, including the Loreta pilgrimage complex, Cernin Palace and Schwarzenberg Palace, and then head inside Prague Castle, a vast complex of palaces, churches and other treasures.

Walk through the courtyards as your guide details their history, and see the architectural highlights, including the Royal Palace, St. George’s Basilica, and St. Vitus Cathedral, arguably one of Europe’s most beautiful churches.

Admire this Gothic masterpiece inside and out, and view the postcard-pretty 15th-century cottages along Golden Lane, once homes to castle artisans and soldiers.

Your tour then finishes in the Mala Strana district. Alternatively, feel free to continue with your guide to the Charles Bridge and graffiti-coated John Lennon Wall, a key protest site in Soviet times.

Tour well done

My cousin and I did the 3-hour free tour and the castle tour. Our tour guide Michael was really good. He has a good knowledge of the city, he's friendly with a good sense of humour.

It Was Fun But

My friends and I did this walking tour and it was fun and interesting. However, the guide was no slouch and moved fast. If you are a chubby American you may find this tour tough. Prague Castle essentially sits atop a cliff overlooking Prague Old...More
