Prague Castle Tour
For many tourists, the expression Prague Castle is confusing. What Czech
refer to as Hradcany or simply "the castle" is actually a large complex
of buildings built on the remnants of the original castle. The overall
panorama is dominated by the St. Vitus cathedral in the core, surrounded
by palaces, churches, fortifications, gardens and houses.
The tour will consist of two parts - upper Hradcany (above the complex
itself) including the 12th century Strahov Monastery with its
halls and the pilgrimage church Loretta with 13 bells.
In the second part we will explore
the Prague Castle with St.Vitus Cathedral as well as the Old Royal
Palace. Then you will also see the Romanesque 10th century St. George
the Golden Lane - a row of tiny craftmen's houses.
