    What to Expect
    Our bus will take you to the gates of Prague Castle, from there you will start an unforgettable tour of the interior of Prague Castle. During this tour you will visit the Old Royal Palace, the Basilica of St. George and St. Vitus Cathedral. Take a stroll down the famous Golden Lane and visit the house connected with life of Franz Kafka. This tour concludes under the Prague Castle's steps.

    St. Vitus Cathedral is the largest and the most important temple in Prague. Apart from religious services, coronations of Czech kings and queens also took place here. The cathedral is a place of burial of several patron saints, sovereigns, noblemen and archbishops.

    Old Royal Palace - the original residence building, mostly wooden, was built at Prague Castle already at the turn of the 9th and 10th century. Its exact location is not documented. It was prince Soběslav in the 12th century who had a stone Romanesque palace built right next to a new fortification wall. Remains of it have been preserved in the underground till the present times. The palace was adjoined on its eastern side by All Saints' Chapel, which was consecrated in 1185.

    St. George's Basilica originated as the second church at Prague Castle. Only parts of the building, founded about 920 by Prince Vratislav I have been preserved. When the convent of Benedictine nuns was founded in 973, the church was enlarged and reconstructed.

    The Golden Lane originated after the construction of a new northern wall of the Castle. The area of the northern bailey was used for the building of modest dwellings, which are now the last remainder of the small-scale architecture of Prague Castle.

    Phillip was a very good guide. He was knowledgeable, informative and polite. It was not one of the more interesting castles we have toured. We wish we had chosen a shorter tour of this castle.More
