Take a 2.5-hour guided tour of the most important cultural institutions in the Czech Republic. The expansive Prague Castle was once the heart of the Holy Roman Empire, and is now home to the Czech president and crown jewels.
Your 2.5-hour guided tour begins at the Charles Bridge, where your guide will give you a short overview of the history of the enormous castle looming over the city.
And then you'll cross the famous Charles Bridge, head to Lesser Town Square, and hop a tram to Prague Castle proper. With an area of almost 70,000 m², the Guinness Book of World Records, calls Prague Castle the largest coherent castle complex in the world.
So the energy that tram ride will save you will give you more pep in your step as your guide shows you around the key sites.
When you enter St. Vitus Cathedral you’ll hear stories about princes, kings, and emperors, and the ceremonial history of the site, and its remarkable stained glass windows. Your tour will also include the Old Royal Palace, Vladislav Hall, and St. George's Basilica - the oldest church onsite.
Another highlight is the area known as Golden Lane, where you'll gain insight into the residents and activities of this storied area.
Prague Castle has undergone various rebuilds, renovations, fires and was also the site of the Second Prague Defenestration - an act that led to the Bohemian Revolt. It's chock-full of history, quirks and stories, and the guide will shed light on its history and significance.

Meet your guide in front of the statue of Charles IV in Křižovnické náměstí. The guide will be holding an open blue and white umbrella.
Don't finish your tour yet! Walk for an extra 11 minutes to Vinarna Certovka, the narrowest street in Prague! It is nested in Prague's oldest neighbourhood, Mala Strana, and has a traffic light of its own so people don't collide as they walk down the 19.6in-wide gap! And finally you can relax at the cutest restaurant at the end of the steps, Vinarna Resutant.
