The Basics

Comprised of dozens of buildings, Prague Castle can feel like a small town. To allow for ample time to explore, tickets are valid for two days: the day of purchase and the following day. Nearly all city tours include a stop at Prague Castle, and a variety of tickets are available depending on how much of the complex you want to see. Explore the castle on your own with a skip-the-line ticket, or book a guided walking tour for a more in-depth experience. To take in even more of Prague’s highlights, combine a visit to Prague Castle with a cruise on the Vltava River or a walking tour of Old Town.

Martin is top notch!
Our tour of Castle Hill was fabulous! Our guide, Martin, was wonderful! He is very knowledgeable, personable, and amusing. I highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Prague. Wear really good walking shoes and be prepared to walk a lot, but every step it worth it!

The majority of the tour was spent in St. Vitus Cathedral. Followed by visits to St. George’s Basilica, then Golden Lane. Martin was a great tour guide, informative and funny, very knowledgeable and enjoyed his time.

Our tour guide was fantastic! She gave tons of historic life to places she took us. We enjoyed the church, the Jewish area, walking through the town. We also enjoyed the Lennon Wall and the Trdelnik dessert. I would love to come back and do it again!

Full-Day Prague Tour with Vltava River Cruise, Prague Castle and Lunch
The tour was amazing. I was the only person so I kind of got a private tour. The boat ride was nice but honestly there is so much to see in Prague, I would have rather spent that hour seeing more of the city.

Prague Castle Highlights

Prague Castle is rich with architectural and historical marvels, including the neo-Gothic St. Vitus Cathedral, which may be the most recognizable part of the complex. Inside, don’t miss St. Wenceslaus Chapel and its magnificent decorations. The treasury is one of the largest in Europe and includes a relic of St. Vitus’ arm, while St. George’s Basilica, with its austere interior, provides an interesting contrast to the elaborate cathedral. The small homes along Golden Lane originally belonged to servants, goldsmiths, and marksmen; look for house 22, where writer Franz Kafka once lived. The Old Royal Palace is now home to an interactive exhibition providing an overview of the city’s history, the Story of Prague Castle.
