The Footsteps of History
The Prague Castle Walk starts from our meeting point located in the center of Prague. We’ll take a short walk through the narrow cobblestone streets to the Charles Bridge which is one of Prague’s three main attractions. Then follow in the footsteps of history by crossing it and taking the same route as Kings, Queens and noblemen of the bygone era. After making our way across this masterpiece we’ll stop to admire the austere majesty of St. Nicolas Church. After, we’ll take in the Prague Castle are and see (from the outside only) Hradčanské Square with its many palaces like the Archbishop’s Palace and Schwarzenberg Palace to name a few.
Defenestrations and Corinations
Finally, it is time to ascend to the Castle via the old steps and Nerudova Street. As we walk up the hillside, we’ll discover some lovely hidden gardens and at the top, we’ll be treated to marvellous views of the city beneath us. We’ll stop a minute to savour the grandeur of the Castle area, a place that has hosted coronations, indoor jousting tournaments, banana markets and even defenestrations – the practice of throwing people out through a window, a term coined by the Czechs! And, before you leave, your guide will give you some history on the spectacular Schwarzenberg Palace and Archbishop’s Palace.
After this short stroll, we head into the Prague Castle to see the first and second courtyards. Then we’ll explore the buildings in the third courtyard, including St Vitus, the country’s largest cathedral the Old Royal Palace, St. George’s Basilica (out side only) and square. The Prague Castle Walk tour ends in the Castle area and you’ll have time to explore for yourself and ask your guide for plenty of tips on the city.
We’ll also take a break for coffee and cake in a cosy Café near the Castle.
