Join us on this fascinating in depth tour and learn all about the history of the political and historical heart of the Czech Republic. A comfortable bus takes you up to the start of the tour where we continue on foot. Covering a vast area of over seven hectares this is more than just any ordinary castle. A labyrinth of palaces, churches, monasteries, museums, fortifications and watch towers awaits the curious visitor. Step into the magnificent Royal Palace and gaze in wonder at the beautiful high vaulted ceilings of the Vladislav Hall. Learn how knights would come down the Rider’s Staircase on horseback to compete in indoor jousting tournaments before visiting the other impressive rooms. We continue on to perhaps the most emblematic of the buildings within the complex, St. Vitus Cathedral. This stunning gothic masterpiece was built in the 14th century and has witnessed the coronations of the Czech monarchs as well as their burials. Next we see St. George's Basilica which is a fine example of a Romanesque church. Its colourful 17th century facade belies the fact that this is one of the oldest buildings within the castle complex. As we amble down Golden Lane take in the quaint charm of the artisans’ cottages and learn about the trades of the goldsmiths and craftsmen who lived here.
