Prague Castle – One of the Best Preserved In Europe

Prague Castle is a UNESCO monument with a history of more than 1,000 years. It’s a textbook of architecture, art history and a must-see destination for visitors from all over the world.

The castle consists of a large-scale composition of palaces and ecclesiastical buildings of various architectural styles. Our Prague Castle tour includes the remains of Romanesque-style buildings from the 10th century to Gothic modifications of the 14th century. Learn about the famous Slovenian architect Josip Plečnik who was responsible for extensive renovations in the time of the First Republic (1918-1938).

The monument has undergone significant and ongoing repairs and reconstructions since the Velvet Revolution.

The churches in Prague Castle were an important part of the establishment of Christianity in early day Bohemia. It was here that the Duke’s sainted wife Ludmila raised their grandson.

Over the centuries, the complex making up of Prague Castle got stone defenses and grew into the largest castle grounds in the world. The walled fortress was a mini city with multiple courtyards which were home to not only the royal family but also their guards, alchemists, and handcrafters. The growth of the castle also led to the growth of the neighborhood below it at around 1252.

You see mixes of Romanesque and Gothic styles plus the distinct Habsburg touch as you take our walking tour of Prague Castle. It may not look like a traditional fairytale fortress, but Prague Castle is a Medieval wonder with many memorable elements.
