The beautiful ancient Castle spans the heights and overlooks a city crammed full of beauty. Prague Castle boasts a mesh of architectural styles, a mix of palaces, and of course, the glorious St. Vitus Cathedral whose spires pierce the sky and dazzle the eye. Within these walls, emperors determined the fate of an empire. Our tour begins where nobility once walked through picturesque Royal Gardens that present a rich array of flowers and songbirds unique to this botanical wonderland. We tell the colorful history while walking through majestic courtyards and ancient fortress towers. You trek down allies and back-ways that most tour guides neglect as you enjoy the awesome magnitude of Prague Castle, truly an unforgettable experience.

According to some legends, the establishment of Prague began within these castle ruins. This castle is where mythical Princess Libuse predicted the glory of the Golden City. We begin a leisurely walk toward the ramparts to enjoy breathtaking views from the cliff, and discuss legends and historical facts. We will visit the actual locations of Prince Horymír’s escape, and the pillar brought to Vysehrad by the Devil himself! We will walk around the Vysehrad Cemetery, where the heroes of Bohemia have been buried for centuries, and see the Cathedral of Saint Peter and Paul.

We conclude the day with an exploration of the casemates, the secret passages allowing soldiers to move undetected, and an underground hall called “Gorlice”, which houses the original statues from the Charles Bridge!

As the crowds thin and twilight descends, the lantern illuminates our journey. Starting from the Old Town Square we wander through streets rich in history, architecture, and legends. Other day tours stuff travellers into the same standard tour routes; these are big groups with a guide you can’t hear.

We visit the castle in the evening, when it is empty and peaceful. Also, we will not be standing in long lines. Kings and Queens enjoyed these areas in their tranquility, and so will we!

We’ll visit the Monastery where monks brewed “the holy beer” for the King. We’ll stroll at a leisurely pace through the Monastery, New World, Prague Castle, the King’s Vineyard, and other ancient enchanting landmarks.

Our tour offers a mixture of facts, mysteries and legends to entertain and inform.

Compare the “legends” and the “true stories” for historical accuracy and cultural significance.

On this 3-hour tour we cover:

•Old Town Square
•St. Nicholas’ Church
•Rudolfinum – Czech Philharmonic
•Amazing Panoramic Views
•Strahov Monastery and Brewery

... and much more!
