  • Sightseeing tour in Prague expand_more

    Gain an initiation into the capital of the former Czech kingdom by choosing either of the below mentioned tour programmes:

    • The Strahov Library: One of the world´s most beautiful historic libraries. Here, you can explore two halls, one dedicated to theology and one to philosophy. Both halls host richly adorned Baroque libraries, astonishing frescos and impressive stucco ceilings. The oldest book deposited there is from the ninth century, a time when the Czech state hadn't even existed.
    • The Loreto Shrine: a pilgrimage place dedicated to Virgin Mary, a Baroque sight at the heart of which there is a small copy of a house where the Virgin Mary was born. Every hour, the graceful melody of Loreto chimes invites the ears of visitors to this place. A Baroque arcade, chapels, a small church dedicated to the Nativity of the Lord and a Treasury are also part of this sightseeing programme. The treasury houses a legendary monstrance called “The Prague Sun” – a dazzling masterpiece  decorated with six thousand diamonds. 

    • Also visit the Prague Castle Monuments which are as follows:
    • The Saint Vitus Cathedral: The main shrine of the country. Inside it shelters the most sacred place in the Czech lands – the Saint Wenceslas Chapel, a jewel of Gothic architecture. Inside the cathedral you can also see the Baroque tomb of Saint John of Nepomuk, made of more than three tons of silver, or Art Nouveau window created by Alfonse Mucha.
    • The Royal Palace will catch your eye not only because of its graceful Late Gothic architecture and star vault, but also because of its Renaissance halls. One of them is the former Diet, another the Land Rolls Hall and finally the Bohemian Chancellery Hall famous for the act of defenestration.
    • Saint George´s Basilica: This Romanesque basilica from the 10th century is the embodiment of the Middle Ages and one of the oldest churches in the entire Czech lands. Saint Ludmila, the grandmother of Saint Wenceslas and the most honoured patron of the Czech Lands, is buried there.
    • The Golden Lane is one of the most picturesque places in Prague. Parts of medieval fortification have been preserved there too. The area inspired one of the most famous writers - Franz Kafka rented one of the houses for his sister and used to write there at nights.
