    You will be driven to Prague Castle, which rises majestically over the Vltava River.

    Most tours simply skirt the castle, but this one take you inside, where you’ll be exposed to more than a millennium of royal intrigue.

    Originally built from timber and enclosed by soil ramparts in 870 AD, the city’s defining landmark has been rebuilt numerous times in its 1100-year history. It has endured fires, invasions, and World Wars, and is a living legend of Prague. In its current incarnation it is a Baroque masterpiece that will leave you with no shortage of marvelous photo opportunities.

    Visit the Royal Palace, originally a Romanesque structure that was reborn in the Gothic style under Charles IV.

    St. Vitus Cathedral is located in the Castle courtyard. This Gothic masterpiece is the seat of the Archbishop of Prague and houses the graves of many Bohemian kings.

    Tour St. George’s Basilica, which is the best-preserved Romanesque church in Prague, adorned with gorgeous altar paintings and dome frescoes.

    Pass by the miniature houses of Golden Lane, which were originally built for the marksmen of the castle and later inhabited by writer Franz Kafka.

    Leave the castle to explore the Lesser Town, where government buildings and restaurants are interspersed with historical churches and palaces.

    Make your way to Charles Bridge. Completed in 1400, this stone overpass spans the Vltava River and affords magnificent views of the castle.

    Your tour concludes at Charles Bridge.
