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.

Prague 3-hour Afternoon Walking Tour including Prague Castle
Our guide Mike was great, very knowledgeable and fun. We started in Old Town and saw all the highlights, plus way more things than we would have walking on our own. The tour was a great value for the price - I highly recommend it!

Half-day Private Prague City and Castle Tour
My husband wanted a more in depth tour of Prague, and our time with Pavel fit the bill perfectly. Pavel is very knowledgeable about the city's history, and speaks English clearly so no communication issues. He shared some of his favorite spots. We had done some exploring of the main Old Town ourselves, and he adjusted his walk and talk to explore parts we hadn't visited.

Misha was an excellent tour guide. She was very knowledgeable and added a bubbly personality to bring out personal reflections during the tour. She was attentive to the large group and managed the tour well. She focused more on Charles IV and his importance to Prague. Overall, a worthwhile tour for anyone.

It was a wonderful tour and I’m so glad to have been in a private tour, but be prepared to pay not only for yourself but also the tour guid as well. Paid for drinks (at two stops) and her entry into the castle.

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.
