What You Can Expect

Prague Castle and Castle District Walking Tour

Enjoy the oldest and historical sites of Prague by foot

Make your own way to the starting point in central Prague and set off with your guide on your 3-hour walking tour.

Stroll across the beautiful Vltava River and admire the panoramic views of the UNESCO-listed Prague Castle complex from the riversides. Learn how this architectural tour-de-force is the world’s largest self-contained castle complex, and was once the power base of Bohemia’s kings, Holy Roman Emperors and Czechoslovakia’s presidents.

Climb the hillside as your guide describes the events and people that shaped Prague’s fortunes through the ages, and how the castle dates back to the 9th century.

Delve into Malá Strana, the Baroque district spread beneath the walls. Pose for photos outside the 18th-century St Nicholas Church and World War II memorial, and then catch a tram to the castle.

Enter the complex through the North Gate and admire the Royal Gardens and Powder Bridge on route to Hradčany Square. Here, take in the handsome Schwarzenberg Palace and statue of  Czechoslovakia’s first president, Tomas Masaryks.

Continue through the Neo-Classical Second Courtyard into the Third Courtyard, the latter dominated by St Vitus Cathedral, one of Europe’s largest churches.

Follow your guide inside to gaze at the magnificent interior, and then pass the Golden Gate, Vladislav Hall and St George’s Basilica on your way to Golden Lane. This picturebook cobblestoned alley is lined with colorful cottages that once housed servants, fusiliers and goldsmiths, and was also home to the great Czech-Jewish writer Franz Kafka between 1916 and 1917.

Delve into the dwellings, some converted into fascinating museums and others into arty souvenir and craft shops. 

Finally, leave the castle and stop on the hillside to snap photos of Prague spread below. Your tour then finishes here or at the Charles Bridge.

I booked this tour for a recent trip my boyfriend and I took to Prague, and I would highly recommend it. We had Ian Nasciemento as our tour guide, and he was the perfect mix of informative, friendly and funny. The tour itself was thorough and well planned out so you got a little break in between walking and sightseeing to rest and warm up we went in Winter and were chilly!. It lasted about 3 hours so you really got your money's worth and felt like you'd seen anything, and Ian was great at answering our questions and giving us extra anecdotes that really brought Prague to life for us!

Andrea was a very knowledgeable and considerate tour guide. I wish I did this on the first day so that I could go back and spend more time on spots she recommended.
