Description

An ancient symbol of the Czech lands, the expansive Prague Castle is one of the most important cultural institutions in the Czech Republic. Once the heart of the Holy Roman Empire, Prague Castle is now home to the Czech president and crown jewels.

According to the Guinness Book of World Records, Prague Castle is the largest coherent castle complex in the world, with an area of almost 70,000 m2. That 'coherent' title isn't bad for a castle that was built way back in the 800s. It's undergone various rebuilds, renovations, fires and was also the site of the Second Prague Defenestration - an act that led to the Bohemian Revolt.

All of that is great if you're into history, but if you're not: know that this castle looms over the Bohemian capital like a fairy tale illustration. As beautiful as it is from afar, once you're inside the complex there's a varied collection of museums, galleries, and cultural treasures. That's why it's one of the most popular places in the city. So whether into history, pretty things, royalty, or weapons and war, there's something here to satisfy everyone.

You'll meet your representative directly in front of the St. Vitus Cathedral to pick up your tickets. Then you'll proceed directly to Prague Castle Circuit B. This route covers the castle interiors, the Old Royal Palace, St. George's Basilica, the delightfully quaint Golden Lane, and the stunning stained glass windows of St. Vitus Cathedral.

Insider tip

According to the legend, the workers who built the main castle gate didn't receive their due payment from the king. They got their revenge, in a rather 'cheeky' way. In the inscription above the stone gate they 'misspelled' the word year in Latin. Instead of anno, they wrote ano, which translates as 'asshole' in Spanish. The moral: never mess with a stoneworker.

Enjoyable day. However we thought that it was a guided tour and it was not. Did get a brief overview from the representative but that was it.
