Czech Republic Walking Tours
Boasting over 2000 castles, landmarks and ruins, the Czech Republic has its fair share of architectural history. With medieval castles, cobbled stone streets and ancient ruins dotted around the country, visitors will have no trouble filling their camera with stunning photos that they’ll be proud to call their own. Walking tours in the Czech Republic are a great way to combine sightseeing and learn some of the fascinating history of this historic gem. Tour guides will show you the best views, the tastiest restaurants and take you off the beaten path to places that some of the locals don’t even know about.
Nothing says architecture like a medieval castle, and Prague has got hundreds of them. It’s also home to the largest ancient castle in the world – Prague Castle. Built and renovated over 13 centuries, the castle is complete with churches, gardens, alleyways and a two tonne vault that holds the tomb of St John of Nepomuk. Walking tours are the best way to explore the castle complex and gain an insight into its fascinating past. Walk in the footsteps of kings and emperors, visit the monastery where ‘Holy Beer’ is brewed and learn about Prague’s infamous alchemist Emperor who brought scientists and magicians to the city.
Once you’ve had your fill of castles, the Royal Gardens are worth a look in. Guides will show you around the manicured gardens and explain why the gardens used to be close to the heart of Emperor Ferdinand. Walking tours will also take you to Daliborka Tower at the end of the Golden Lane, St Vitus’ Cathedral, St. George’s Basilica and down through the royal vineyards which are thought to be founded by St Wenceslas in the 10th century.Read More ...
