Your guide will meet you at the meeting point which is usually your hotel 15 minutes prior to the beginning of your tour. Your tour is a private tour with only your group. From your hotel, you\'ll take a 30 minute ride on public transportation to Prague Castle. Please keep in mind that the entrance fee to Prague Castle are not included and you will have to pay for this at your expense upon arrival. You\'ll walk through the first courtyard to the ramp to see Prague below you. You wont want to miss this scenic point as it will give you a magnificent view. You\'ll be able to experience the changing of the guard at the main gate. Your guide will always explain what you see, what happened there and will also add personal stories and explanations about the current political situations in the Czech Republic.

Your next stop is the Magnificent St. Vitus Cathedral, which is known to be one of the most sacred in the whole country. You\'ll find out who is buried in this house of God. There are two parts of the Cathedral. The old and new. You\'ll learn about the 1000 year development. You\'ll learn about when the Cathedral was finished and why - it may surprise you but definitely something you\'ll want to know.

From the cathedral you\'ll continue to the second courtyard to see the former gate into the cathedral - the Golden Gate. Opposite in the New Castle is the office of the Czech President. You\'ll enter the Old Royal Palace and see Vladislav Hall. Learn for what purposes the great hall is used for today and what happened in the wing and window above the moat in 1618. This is where the 30 year war (1618-1648) which brought despair, hunger and ongoing battles to Europe began.

Next stop, you\'ll have the option to stop for a coffee break in one of the cafés at the Prague Castle (at own expense). You\'ll continue to the St. George Basilica and lastly to the Golden Lane. A small street in the hidden corner by the fortification wall. Here you will find picturesque houses in which people actually lived until 20th century. You will also see the prison that housed the harshest criminals. You\'ll see the torture chamber and tools. In the fortification wall is a museum of armor, weapons, and swords. Here you will have free time to discover it all by yourself. This will conclude your tour. If you wish, you can choose to stay at the Prague Castle longer and get directions from your tour guide for your return to the Metro Station or City Center.
