The tour guide (Marta) was super knowledgeable. An amazing tour :) the guide will explain to you how the castle is structured and tell you a few stories... Then you will receive your tickets and will be able to enter particular buildings as you wish. (make sure you will visit the prison/torture room after visiting zlota ulica-it is free)...You can find a few coffee shops and a restaurant inside the castle so do not worry. Your ticket will include entrances to 5 places...one of them is the museum of Charles bridge located next to the bridge...a nice small place... You will not need to spend there more than 30 minutes there ...but it is definitely a nice addition to your trip... The bell tower is not included but the price is 150 (around £3)..one thing, trainers are more than recommended...on your way to the castle you can except loooooots of stairs :) enjoy!

The guide was super and could tell us a lot about the different time periods in the castle. It was an introductory tour which means it was a lot of information in a short time. You should probably know a little bit about the different countries/empires throuhout central europe before taking this tour. The guide was the best thing about the castle . The exhibitions we went to inside the palace and so on was a bit dissapointing. The exterior of the castle and courtyards was amazing. One additional museum that we went to that was included in the ticket was the Charles bridge museum, it was very interesting to see the exhibition about the construction of the bridge.

The river presents a stunning panorama of Prague Castle. Your knowledgeable guide will fill you in on the history and legends surrounding the ancient residence of Czech monarchs and Holy Roman emperors. As the official seat of the President of the Czech Republic and one of the most significant centers of political and ecclesiastical powers in Europe since olden times, there is a lot to learn about one of the largest castle complexes in the world.

Explore the Castle Interiors

After an introduction to the Castle get your skip-the-line ticket and go past the waiting crowds to explore the Castle interiors. Visit the magnificent specimen of European Gothic architecture - the St. Vitus Cathedral - the traditional site of Czech royal coronations, and also the burial site of Czech Kings, Dukes, and Habsburg Emperors. Admire the decor of precious stones on the St. Wenceslas’ Chapel, the final resting place of the national patron saint. It has a door with seven locks that leads to the Crown Chamber which still holds the Czech Crown Jewels.

Saunter along the Golden Lane

See the beautiful Last Judgement Mosaic from 1370 on your way to the Old Royal Palace, and take a moment to stand beneath the massive vault of the Vladislav Hall. Once the site of knightly tournaments and coronation banquets, today the Hall is the host of presidential inaugurations. Don’t forget to pay a visit to the St. George's Basilica; the oldest surviving church in the Castle flaunts beautiful Romanesque architecture from the 1140s. Head towards the Golden Lane, a picturesque street that holds several tiny houses built for royal guards in the late 16th century. It was named so after the goldsmiths that settled here in the early 20th century. Along with Franz Kafka, a celebrated 20th-century novelist who found a short-term retreat here, the charming Lane has attracted several artists.
