    Stop At: Prague Castle, Hradcany, Prague 11908 Czech Republic

    Discover the fascinating 1,100-year old history behind the world’s largest castle complex on a small group 3-hour walking tour of Prague Castle and the Royal District with an historian guide. This guided walking tour will take you to the imposing Prague Castle atop Hradčany Hill through the Royal Garden and over the Stag Moat. See the ancient buildings, that have been constructed and reconstructed in every architectural style, incorporating Romanesque, Gothic, Baroque, Rococo, Renaissance, and Neoclassical monuments. Learn about the Castle buildings from your historian guide and how these have been bombarded by artillery, plundered by marauding armies and left to deteriorate by indifferent Austrian Emperors over the years. Allow your guide to bring this history to life with their vast knowledge of the country’s turbulent past. We recommend booking an afternoon tour if your schedule allows as the castle complex is often less crowded then.
