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.
A 24 CZK transportation ticket is required for this tour.
