Description
Take a 3-hour journey through time and explore the grandeur of the world's largest castle complex in Prague. Your passionate guide will lead you through the imposing Prague Castle atop Hradčany Hill, and its Moat and Gardens, which have been constructed and reconstructed in every architectural style, from Romanesque to Neoclassical. Hear stories of how the Castle buildings have been bombarded by artillery, plundered by marauding armies, and left to deteriorate by indifferent Austrian Emperors over the years. Visit the Renaissance Ball Game Hall, where tennis was once played by sporty aristocrats, and the Vladislav Hall, which was built to host indoor jousting tournaments. Walk through Hradčany (Royal Town) and learn about the Domeček (“Little House”), where political opponents were imprisoned by the Gestapo and Communist StB (Secret Police). Discover the Strahov Monastery with its ancient library containing two hundred thousand volumes, and conclude the tour at the monastic brewery by savoring the rare St. Norbert’s microbrew while taking in a panoramic view of the 100-spired city below. Ask your guide any questions you may have about the country’s turbulent past!
