This 2.5-hour guided tour will begin at Charles Bridge, where you will meet your guide who will give you a brief historical overview of Prague Castle. You will then cross Charles Bridge and reach Lesser Town Square, from where you will make your way to Prague Castle via a tram.
The first attraction you will visit is St. Vitus Cathedral, where you will hear stories about princes, kings and emperors and also learn about the ceremonial history of the area. A notable example of Gothic architecture in the complex, St. Vitus Cathedral is the most important church in the Czech Republic. Inside it lies the tombs of several Bohemian Kings and Roman Emperors. The central tower stands at a massive 103 metres. In addition, it houses the Bohemian Crown Jewels, which are kept in a hidden room that has seven locks. The seven keys are held by prominent members of the Czech government and the Archbishop of Prague, who must gather together to open the impenetrable door.
After a tour of the old castle and Vadislav Hall, make your way to St. George’s Basilica, where your guide will tell you about Czech saints. In an eye-catching shade of red, the church houses the famous Bohemian Art Collection. Currently, it also serves as a concert hall.
Finally, you will visit Golden Lane, where you will learn about the lives of the local residents. Named after the goldsmiths that lived on this lane in the 1600s, it is a street that was built to house the guards of Rudolf II. Presently, most of the houses have been converted to souvenir shops, and a medieval armory museum is accessible from here. The confluence of various structural styles makes the Prague Castle a treat to the eyes and this experience that much more special.
