Full description
Prague Castle dominates the skyline and history of the Czech capital. The world’s largest medieval castle, it has towered over the city since the 9th century and continues to awe and inspire today. Known as Pražský Hrad, the castle boasts dozens of hidden corners and is full of surprises that you will uncover on this 3-hour walking tour.

The remarkably harmonious ensemble of contrasting styles is the product of generations of gifted architects, culminating in the 20th-Century with the forgotten genius of Jože Plečnik. Let your expert guide bring to life the legends of the court of Rudolf II, the nightmares of Kafka, and the very real struggles of the Velvet Revolution.

You will also explore Malá Strana, dotted with the former palaces of the nobility. Wander beyond the castle gates and through picturesque Hradčany to get the best views of the city. After visiting sites such as the Strahov Monastery and Brewery, Wallenstein Palace, St George’s Basilica, and the Deer Moat, the tour will finish in Prague Castle Gardens overlooking the Old Town.

It was trully amazing.

The guide (Jeremy) was awesome and also very funny. The tour was like a longer walk with one tram ride. After we finished the tour, Jeremy took us also in some kind of garden under the Prague castle and just talk with us about everything. He is very nice guy with lot of different interests.

We loved the experience only that almost at the end of the tour they left us 5 minutes to see ... we were distracted in buying something that did not take more than 2 mint ... when leaving the guide and the others were no longer ... we they left .. thankfully we knew how to get out and get back to the center of Prague .. it was a bittersweet taste

Indispensable

The tour is super complete, with explanations and super recommended places. We liked the guide Hector, he is an unusual guide, with great humor, super cult and noticing that he likes what he does. We passed the tour super fast. And we added that it was 3 and a half hours and when we explained so many interesting things we arrived at the end at 4 o'clock, and that we value it a lot, since it is part of your free personal time.
