A deep dive into Prague’s history

A visit to Prague Castle is a must if you love history or architecture. Go on this private guided tour, which lets you jump on a tram and breeze past long lines to go back in time. Built in the 9th century, Prague Castle has served as the seat of power for Roman emperors, Kings of Bohemia, and presidents of the Czech Republic for centuries.

A visit to Prague’s important churches

Explore St. Vitus Cathedral, the burial place of patron saints and noblemen like St. John of Nepomuk and Duke of Bohemia. Descend down the double staircase of the oldest standing church in Prague, St. George’s Basilica, which contains the tomb of Prince Vratislav I, the church’s founder.

Where history was made
