The Prague Castle is the most important landmark in the Czech Republic and the largest castle in the world, with a surface of seventy thousand metres square.

Description

On our Prague Castle and Medieval District Tour we will learn how, from its construction in the IX Century, the Prague Castle (Pražský hrad) controls the ancient citadel from the heights. This complex was the official residence for kings and princes of Bohemia, monarchs of the Holy Roman Empire, and it became the main headquarters in 1918. It boasts old palaces, church buildings, gardens and picturesque spaces.

The Prague Castle continues to inspire and impress the visitors, as it is a world on its own, full of secret spaces and surprises in every corner. In the company of our experienced guides, we will learn everything about the legendary court of Rodolfo II, the Kafka’s nightmares and the fights during the Velvet Revolution

We will also wander around and discover the Schwarzenberg, Stenberg and Lobkowicz Palaces, the Stag Moat, a small valley that used to be closed to the public; and the impressive Matias Gate, the oldest Baroque monument in the Czech Republic, which leads to the Castle’s inner courtyards.  

As we continue our journey, we will explore the surroundings of the Prague Castle and its architectural and natural complex, composed by the St. Vitus Cathedral, the outside spaces of the Old Royal Palace, the Golden Lane; the White, Black, Powder and Dalibor Towers, the Charles Bridge and St. Wenceslas’ Vineyard, where grapes are cultivated to produce dry and red wine. As the icing on the cake, we will get amazed by the spectacular Changing of the Guard

Once we have visited the castle, we will wander down Malá Strana, also known as the Prague Baroque Quarter. This is one of the oldest districts in the city, where we will unfold the stories, legends and curiosities that have revolved around its streets for centuries. 

The Prague Castle and Medieval District Tour ends in Charles Bridge, an essential link between Prague’s Old City and the Lesser Quarter. With the sheer dimensions of 500 metres long and about 10 metres wide, it used to have four lanes for the passing carriages. Nowadays, it features 30 statues along its balustrade. The major attraction of Malá Strana is its great state of preservation, as the palaces and old houses remain in good conditions for centuries after the war.
