Prague Castle, a majestic building with an awe-inspiring interior and remarkable courtyards, is perched atop a plateau overlooking the capital. It's the official residence of the President. Embark on this walking tour for an in-depth exploration of the complex and learn about its rich history.
Take a private bus up to the castle's grounds, and follow your guide as you weave through cool, shady passageways and the magnificent interiors of the Royal Palace, St. Vitus Cathedral, St. George Basilica, and Golden Lane. Admire the architecture of Roman-style buildings from the 10th century through Gothic modifications in the 14th century—all confirming the mighty compound's reputation as the jewel in Prague's crown.
Stroll through immaculate gardens, stately halls, and grand galleries. Be sure to check out The Lobkowicz Palace, the only privately owned building in the complex, home to The Lobkowicz Collections, an impressive display of royal portraits, fine porcelain, ceramics, rare decorative arts dating from the 16th to 20th century, and original manuscripts by Beethoven and Mozart.
As you explore, your guide narrates the history behind the castle's centuries-old stones and tells stories of the 600-year history of the Lobkowicz family, including the dramatic story of how the family lost everything and got it back—twice.
