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.

So fun! Learned a lot.
We loved our guide, Ross. He was so knowledgeable. And had a great sense of humor. We ate at a very typical Czech place and it was delicious.

Prague Castle and Castle District Walking Tour
Karel was a fantastic guide! We loved hearing about the architecture of the old town and castle- especially the fact about Charles Bridge being made out of eggs! We hope he enjoyed our tips about toxic traits and didn’t mind all the dancing. 10/10 was a fantastic tour!

Prague Walking Tour of Old Town, Charles Bridge and Prague Castle
My husband and I took this walking tour while in Prague on 12-1-21. Unfortunately, I cannot remember our guide's name at this point, but she was absolutely wonderful. I highly recommend this tour for anyone looking to get a great historical overview of Prague. Although this tour is only 2.5 hours, you will be on the move and see many of the most important historical sites of the city.

Skip-the-Line Prague Castle Ticket and Minibus Transfer
Convenient way to get to the castle and great orientation. The information provided by the guide was extremely useful -- from the historical and cultural notes regarding not only the Castle but also the city and the country, to the tips on how to make the best of the visit, what not to miss, etc. The transport and prepurchased tickets were super helpful.

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.
