The world’s largest coherent castle complex, Prague Castle is a must when visiting the City of 100 Spires. Covering an area of almost 70,000 square meters, Prague Castle is said to contain nearly every architectural approach of the last millennium. From the gothic St. Vitus Cathedral to the romanesque Basilica of St. George, Bohemian baroque buildings to early 20th century renovations, the complex runs the stylistic gamut, and provides the perfect backdrop for exploring the history of the city and its many layers. The Strahov Monastery was founded in 1143 by Bishop Bishop John of Prague, and Duke Vladislav II. Thanks to numerous renovations it stands proud to this day, from atop a hill with magnificent views of the cityscape. During our time together on this 3-hour private tour, we’ll visit various buildings that make up the Strahov Monastery, including the Basilica of Assumption of Our Lady. We’ll also visit the Strahov Library, considered one of the world’s most beautiful libraries.
