An ancient symbol of the Czech lands, the expansive Prague Castle is one of the most important cultural institutions in the Czech Republic. Once the heart of the Holy Roman Empire, Prague Castle is now home to the Czech president and crown jewels.
According to the Guinness Book of World Records, Prague Castle is the largest coherent castle complex in the world, with an area of almost 70,000 m². That `coherent` title isn`t bad for a castle that was built way back in the 800s. It`s undergone various rebuilds, renovations, fires and was also the site of the Second Prague Defenestration – an act that led to the Bohemian Revolt.
All of that is great if you`re into history, but if you`re not: know that this castle looms over the Bohemian capital like a fairy tale illustration. As beautiful as it is from afar, once you`re inside the complex there`s a varied collection of museums, galleries, and cultural treasures. That`s why it`s one of the most popular places in the city. So whether into history, pretty things, royalty, or weapons and war, there`s something here to satisfy everyone.
You`ll meet your representative directly in front of the St. Vitus Cathedral to pick up your tickets. This is important – otherwise you can`t use your ticket!
Then you`ll proceed directly to Prague Castle Circuit B. This route covers the castle interiors, the Old Royal Palace, St. George`s Basilica, the delightfully quaint Golden Lane, and the stunning stained glass windows of St. Vitus Cathedral.
