The Basics

Comprised of dozens of buildings, Prague Castle can feel like a small town. To allow for ample time to explore, tickets are valid for two days: the day of purchase and the following day. Nearly all city tours include a stop at Prague Castle, and a variety of tickets are available depending on how much of the complex you want to see. Explore the castle on your own with a skip-the-line ticket, or book a guided walking tour for a more in-depth experience. To take in even more of Prague’s highlights, combine a visit to Prague Castle with a cruise on the Vltava River or a walking tour of Old Town.

3-hour Private Prague Castle Walking Tour
Pavel, our tour guide, was extremely knowledgeable and had great insight into the history of the Prague Castle and the Czech culture. He was kind and answered any questions we had. He picked us up at our hotel. We walked and took trams up to the castle. We learned so much. I highly recommend hiring him as a tour guide.

They had a very busy day on our chosen day, they advised they usually do smaller groups, but they still handled the groups well. The guide was nice and informative, she shared interesting details and stories. Had we not been on a tour, I probably would not have seen as much.

Prague Castle Highlights

Prague Castle is rich with architectural and historical marvels, including the neo-Gothic St. Vitus Cathedral, which may be the most recognizable part of the complex. Inside, don’t miss St. Wenceslaus Chapel and its magnificent decorations. The treasury is one of the largest in Europe and includes a relic of St. Vitus’ arm, while St. George’s Basilica, with its austere interior, provides an interesting contrast to the elaborate cathedral. The small homes along Golden Lane originally belonged to servants, goldsmiths, and marksmen; look for house 22, where writer Franz Kafka once lived. The Old Royal Palace is now home to an interactive exhibition providing an overview of the city’s history, the Story of Prague Castle.
