Take our Free tour: across Prague Castle & Charles bridge to discover one of the most important areas of the city. First, we walk across the world-famous Charles Bridge, crossing over to Mala Strana (Lesser Town), the beautiful Baroque quarter. We then visit Prague Castle, the largest castle complex in the world, and see St Vitus Cathedral. During this 3-hour free walking tour, we will cover 2 of Prague’s historical areas. You look out on the entire city from some of the best viewpoints in Prague. All this in one Free Tour – don’t miss out!
Over 600 years ago, a man who became a king had ambitions to reign over the biggest empires in Europe as Emperor. He decided to build a city worthy of being a capital, a city that would be known throughout the world over for centuries to come. This man was Charles IV. The city was Prague.
In our free Castle Tour, we will start our adventure with one of the most magnificent architectural marvels, the Charles Bridge. This landmark has united the two sides of the city since the 14th century and is one of Charles IV’s greatest achievements.
From there, we make our way via tram to Prague Castle, just like the locals! The castle is on a fortified location on a hill – overlooking the entire city for centuries. Once atop, we wander through this district, then through the walls into the castle grounds themselves. It is the largest castle complex in the world. Get ready to roam through picturesque courtyards: learn about legendary figures like Rudolph II, Holy Roman Emperor, who was at once a madman and great king, and Maria Theresa, a Hapsburg who brought freedom to the women of Bohemia.
We encounter the impressive Cathedral of St Vitus. Discover the thousand-year-long history of the lands where this cathedral sits today, its secrets and stories.
The wealth of history that surrounds the castle is impossible to detail in a short description. The only way to find out more is to join us on our Free Castle Tour!
Accessible by stroller or wheelchair and, of course, the youngest (and furriest) members of the family are welcome too.
