Day Trips from Prague

Prague, the capital city of the Czech Republic, is bisected by the Vltava River. Nicknamed “the City of a Hundred Spires” Prague is one of the few European cities preserved in its original state since the medieval times. In our tour you will first drive to the Prague Castle, where you will start the tour. Built in the 9th century, Prague Castle is a castle complex which holds the official office of the President of the Czech Republic. The castle was a seat of power for kings of Bohemia, Holy Roman emperors, and presidents of Czechoslovakia. Apart from the castle complex you can visit the Castle's interiors: St. Vitus Cathedral, Old Royal Palace, St. George's Basilica, Golden Lane with Daliborka Tower (Entrance to Circuit B). Walk down towards Mala Strana (Lesser Town) a hillside area with views across the Vltava river to the old town. Hotels, casual eateries and traditional pubs line its narrow streets, and visitors scribble messages to the late Beatle on the John Lennon Wall. The riverside Kampa area offers fine dining, and exhibits of photos and letters at the Franz Kafka Museum. Peacocks roam freely at Wallenstein Garden. Continue your walking tour over the Charles bridge, lined with statues of Catholic saints. Its construction started in 1357 under the auspices of King Charles IV, and finished in the beginning of the 15th century. Finish your tour in the Old Town square, the historic heart of Prague, with colourful baroque buildings, Gothic churches and the medieval Astronomical Clock, which gives an animated hourly show.
