What to expect
Take a walk back through time on our tour of the famous Castle District. Having evolved over 1100 years from the seat of medieval kings to the home of modern presidents, this part of the city is steeped in more than a thousand years of Bohemian history. Let the best guides in Prague bring it to life for you.
The walk is at a leisurely pace and thanks to the tram ride to the top of the hill, mostly slightly downhill.
