The Czech Republic, known for its architectural wonders, is home to some of Europe’s most picturesque castles—everything from imposing fortresses protecting crown jewels to romantic summer chateaus. Here are your options for visiting from Prague.

Prague Castle
Considered the largest ancient castle in the world, Prague Castle comprises a sprawling complex of structures—churches, courtyards, gardens, and royal residences—built between the 10th and 20th centuries. Don’t miss the St. Vitus Cathedral, a symbol of the Czech Republic, towering over the castle walls.
How to Visit: Join a walking tour of the UNESCO-listed castle grounds to uncover its 10 centuries of history.

Karlstejn Castle
Built by King Charles IV in the 14th century, imposing Karlstejn Castle was designed to protect the royal family’s crown jewels and collection of holy relics. The first view of this magnificent, Disney-like castle on a hill is a highlight in the Czech Republic.
How to Visit: Choose a guided half-day tour or hop on a bike and follow your guide to the castle along the banks of the River Vlatva from Prague.

Konopiste Castle
Archduke Franz Ferdinand spent the last decades of his life hidden away in Konopiste Castle, his favorite country retreat, before his assassination in 1914 ignited a world war. Learn more about the archduke and his passion for hunting and St. George on a visit to this impressive Gothic and Renaissance chateau.
How to Visit: Explore the castle on an easy half-day tour from Prague (guided or private), or combine your excursion with stops at Novy Knin and Karlstejn Castle.

Cesky Krumlov Castle
The Renaissance-style Cesky Krumlov Castle occupies a hilltop overlooking the UNESCO World Heritage-listed village of the same name. Considered to be among the most beautiful castles in the country, Cesky Krumlov is a must-see in southern Bohemia.
How to Visit: Travel through the scenic Bohemian countryside on a guided day trip to Cesky Krumlov from Prague. Tours of the cobbled Old Town often include entrance to the castle.
