It's like entering a fairy tale when you visit Prague Castle. See the highlights of the castle complex including the Old Royal Palace, St. Vitus Cathedral, the Golden Lane and St. George’s Basilica.

Despite the overwhelming amount of art and history in the castle, your local expert guide will make it easy for you to move around the grounds.

Meet your guide right in front of the Malostranská metro station near the Mánes Bridge. Take the tram up to Prague Castle from there. When you get inside, your tour guide will give you headphones so you can easily hear their commentary all the way through the tour.

Admire the Gothic architecture of St. Vitus. Look for the church's gargoyles on the outside. The Czech artist Alfons Mucha's Art Nouveau stained glass window will totally awe you. Admire the last judgment mosaic from the 14th century.

The chapel of St. Wenceslas, the baroque tomb of St. John of Nepomuk, and the tombs of St. Wenceslas and Charles IV are all worth seeing. Step inside the Old Royal Palace next. The Vladislav Hall's massive vaulted ceiling can be seen from below.

Step inside the room where the Defenestration of Prague took place. The Catholic governors of the Habsburg emperor and their secretary were thrown out of this window by Czech Protestant aristocrats, igniting the Thirty Years' War.

Pay a visit to the St. George's Basilica. The grandeur of the castle is offset by the basilica's stone walls and design. Walk up the double staircase to the location where St. Ludmila's relics are, then examine the fragments of 12th-century frescoes.

Stroll along the Golden Lane. The cottages in this alley were initially constructed for the sharpshooters of the castle, but they later housed goldsmiths. Artists like Franz Kafka lived there in later centuries.

Examine the Golden alley's reconstructed homes and workshops. See how Prague's working class lived in the castle's shadow.

Value for money! The tour was very informative and insightful. Our tour guide, Jane, was a great storyteller. The tour said that was an introduction to the Prague Castle, but I personally think it was more than an introduction which was good. We were able to enter St. Vitus Cathedral, Old Royal Palace, St. George’s Basilica and The Golden Lane. The tour lasted a little more than 2.5hrs. We were a group of 5 which was a good number. Highly recommended!

The tour is recommended for everyone who wants to learn more about the history of Prague Castle. The lady spoke excellently, was very easy to understand thanks to the audio and was also able to contribute a joke or two. We had a good 2.5 hours of wonderful historical entertainment.

A fascinating tour of the different corners of the Prague Castle, and for this, an excellent accompaniment by the guide Viera, very entertaining and with a very complete and detailed knowledge. In addition, with the fortune of being of Czech nationality and with an excellent command of the Spanish language.

The tour was very competent and detailed, but it was perhaps a bit too much for the tourist without prior knowledge, especially when it came to the ability to concentrate
