This sightseeing tour is part by air-conditioned car/van/coach, but mostly on foot (Prague Castle is pedestrianised).After picking you up from your Prague hotel / apartment, we drive up to the castle to begin our tour. Prague Castle is the city's No1 tourist attraction and Europe's largest medieval castle. It is set in a commanding position overlooking the city, from where the Kings of Bohemia once ruled.Prague Castle is an intriguing mix of great halls, palaces, state apartments, churches, a monastery, viewing towers, fortifications, museums and art galleries. Our guide brings the castle to life by explaining the turbulent history surrounding the various buildings, and their royal and presidential connections. At St. Vitus Cathedral we discover where the coronation of Kings and Queens took place. We admire the grand architecture of the Old Royal Palace. And we explore St. George's Basilica, founded in 920 AD - the best-preserved Romanesque church in Prague.Plus we tour Golden Lane (Zlatá ulička), an ancient street dating from the 15th Century where fine artisans lived and worked, supplying the needs of the inhabitants of the castle. This was also where the mystical art of alchemy was practised.Finally, as it is set high up on a hill, Prague Castle affords visitors magnificent views over the whole city. To finish the tour, we exit the castle and walk down towards the Vltava River via some ancient stone steps. As we descend, there are wonderful views to enjoy over the river, and looking back, we can admire the shear size and magnificence of Prague Castle.
