Explore the Largest Ancient Castle in the World
According to the Guinness Book of World Records, Prague Castle is the largest coherent castle complex in the world, with an area of almost 230,000 square feet. Not bad for a castle that was built way back in the 800s. It has undergone various rebuilds, renovations, and fires, and was also the site of the Second Prague Defenestration, which led to the Bohemian Revolt.
As beautiful as it is from afar, once you're inside the complex you'll appreciate how beautiful the castle is close-up. With its varied collection of museums, galleries, and cultural treasures, the castle is one of the most popular attractions in Prague. So whether you're into history, exquisite treasures, royalty, or weapons and war, you'll find something here to satisfy your curiosity.
You'll meet your representative directly in front of the St. Vitus Cathedral to pick up your tickets. This is important - otherwise you can't use your ticket! Then you'll proceed directly to Prague Castle Circuit B. This route covers the castle interiors, the Old Royal Palace, St. George's Basilica, the delightfully quaint Golden Lane, and the stunning stained glass windows of St. Vitus Cathedral.
