Complete Prague Castle Experience

Hlavní město Praha, Czech Republic

Experience hosted by Vaclav

3 hours, Hosted in English

What you'll do

Prague Castle is much more than a popular attraction. For Czech people it is really a definition of home. Having stood for over 1000 years, Prague Castle represents a core of the nation, the immovable legacy of its people. We meet you at the Malostranska metro station and take a short ride by a tram up to the Hradčany district. We start the tour at 1:15 PM for a reason. The tour includes a ticket to the castle interiors and this is the least busy time since all the big bus companies plan their trips for the morning. Our licenses give us a priority in shopping for the entrance tickets, so we can skip the line and jump straight to the castle exploring! Starting with the St. Vitus Cathedral, you will see the stunning art nouveau window by Alfons Mucha, the tomb of Good King Wenceslas, and hundreds of treasures and paintings all inside of the most important gothic structure in the country. Afterwards we proceed to the Old Royal Palace where the defenestration of Prague took place and to the St. George’s basilica, one of the only surviving romanesque churches in Prague. We finish at 3:45 in the Golden Lane, the home of alchemist and writers, just before all the other companies arrive and flood the castle!
Other things to note
To take photos of the castle interiors you will need to purchase a photo license for 50 CZK/ 2 EUR.

You will be in the streets of Prague, inside of churches, outside of churches, walking through the castle, entering narrow Golden Lane corridors, admiring art, but mainly, you will be surrounded by great people and you will have a lot of fun.

Our host showed up early and even recommended some spots to check out. She was super knowledgeable and super helpful with any questions we had. Was bit of a walk, but worth it all for the knowledge and sights.

Our guide Jakub was so friendly and personable. He was very knowledgeable about the history of the castle and Prague. We learned everything we wanted to know about Prague Castle and it’s history. The meeting point was easy to find and it was just a quick tram ride up the hill to the castle. If you are in Prague, this experience is a must! You won’t be disappointed!

Jakub was a wealth of knowledge & very personable. I would highly recommend this tour. The stories were fascinating & made the Castle experience much richer than going at it alone.

It was an absolutely brilliant tour. Valery is a very kind and knowledgeable person. She succeeded in giving us detailed information about the castle. She knows a lot about Prague history and told us very interesting and funny stories. She was also well prepared,.she had taken her tablet and swowed us pictures on it. We really enjoyed the tour. I highly recommend. Thank you very much!

Jakub was a very good tour guide. It was only him and I and we had the best time. He is very intelligent and knew so much history about both Prague and Prague castle. I could not have asked for a better guide- if you can, I recommend you go on this tour with him.
