Prague Sightseeing Tours and Day Trips from Prague

Are you coming to Prague and would you like to make sure that you don't miss any of the must-see sights? Do you want to be shown around the city or taken on a day trip by an experienced local guide who will take care of all the arrangements? Do you enjoy sightseeing in the company of others? The tours below may be just the right thing for you…

Prague Castle (Pražský hrad)

Prague Castle (Pražský hrad)

Records indicate that Prague Castle is the largest castle area in the world. Its three courtyards and a number of magnificent buildings cover over 7 hectares (18 acres), so be prepared to see a lot and do some walking. Depending on the time you have and your interests, you can decide which interiors to visit. The Prague Castle experienced one of its greatest periods during the reign of Charles IV (1346-1378) when it became the seat of the Holy Roman Emperor. The Royal Palace was rebuilt, the fortifications were strengthened, and the construction of St. Vitus Cathedral was initiated, following the style of Gothic French cathedrals of the time.
Old Town Square

Old Town Square

The heart of Prague's historical center is the Old Town Square. It has been beautifully restored and it is a good place to start your Prague visit. You will find the Gothic spires of the Týn Church towering over the square and the statue of reformer Jan Hus, and the Astronomical Clock on the Old Town Hall on the opposite side of it (by the way, we don't think that the hourly display of the 12 apostles is worth a wait longer than five minutes). You will not regret a climb to the top of the Old Town Hall tower - the view of the square and beyond is spectacular.

Around Old Town Square

Wander the streets leading off the square - the grand Pařížská, the charming Týnská that leads to Ungelt, the ever-busy Melantrichova that will take you to Wenceslas Square... Walk down Celetná to the Powder Tower, one of the historical entrances to the Old Town. Connected to the tower is the exquisite Municipal House, Prague's Art Nouveau gem.
Jewish Quarter

Jewish Quarter

The Jewish Quarter (Josefov) is not far from Old Town Square and it would make sense to visit it in connection with your tour of the Old Town. The Jewish Museum administers the following sites: the Maisel Synagogue, the Pinkas Synagogue, the Spanish Synagogue, the Old Jewish Cemetery, the Klaus Synagogue, and the Ceremonial Hall. The Old-New Synagogue is the oldest working synagogue in Central Europe.
Charles Bridge

Charles Bridge

Walk across the Charles Bridge on your first day because you may want to do it again. We recommend strolling across it at night to enjoy the magnificent view of the Prague Castle all lit up. Also, at night the crowds will be smaller. Keep in mind that during the day you can climb the towers on both sides of the bridge. We especially recommend the one on the Old Town side for wonderful views of the bridge and the spires of the Old Town.
Kutná Hora

Kutná Hora

A visit to the medieval silver mining town of Kutná Hora is a nice day trip from Prague. In as little as an hour, you can get out of the city and enjoy the picturesque beauty of this small Czech town with a big past. In the 13th century, silver was discovered here and a few decades later the royal mint was established. The town became famous for producing the Prague Groschen coins, which were also used elsewhere in Europe at the time, and became the second most important town in the Kingdom of Bohemia. Some of the important sights you will see include the Gothic Cathedral of Saint Barbora, Wallachian Court (the former royal mint), and the Sedlec Ossuary (a church decorated with human bones).
Karlovy Vary

Karlovy Vary

The world famous spa town of Karlovy Vary, also known by its German name of Karlsbad (or Carlsbad in English), was founded in 1350 by the Czech King and Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV. The town's visitors over the years have included Casanova, Ludwig van Beethoven, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Franz Kafka, Alphonse Mucha, and many representatives of the world film industry who come to Karlovy Vary as guests of the International Film Festival held every year in July.
Karlovy Vary lies in a green valley of the river Teplá (meaning 'Warm') and its setting alone gives it an atmosphere of beauty and peace. The town has been recapturing its former glory with its Baroque and Art Nouveau buildings being restored and people rediscovering all the town has to offer.
Whether you go to Karlovy Vary to relax your mind, find a cure or admire the architecture, you will not regret visiting this elegant city.
Tábor

Tábor

Tábor is a town of 37 thousand people, but it feels much smaller because its historical center is very condensed and can easily be covered in just a few hours. The town is a nice stop if you are traveling in Southern Bohemia or are passing by and have a few hours to spare.
Tábor has an eventful past, linked to the religious Hussite wars of the 15th century. It was founded as a bastion by Jan Žižka, army-leader of the Hussites, in 1420. Reminders of these turbulent times can be found in street names, monuments, the ever-present symbol of the chalice, and in the Hussite Museum that is housed inside the Town Hall.
Tábor's Old Town is very pretty and it is a pleasure to stroll along its narrow cobblestone streets rimmed with colorful residential houses that are decorated with a mixture of Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque and other elements. We recommend starting at the picturesque Jan Žižka Square where you can visit the Information Center, and then choosing any of the streets that lead from the square in all directions.
Český Krumlov

Český Krumlov

The medieval town of Český Krumlov is a true gem and one of the first places in the Czech Republic that was listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The neglectful times of Communism saw the town grey and dilapidated - but even then its beauty could have been perceived under the rough surface. Since the early 1990s, Český Krumlov has been reborn and transformed into a place of charming beauty and near perfection.
That perfection was scarred in August 2002 when the Vltava River that otherwise snakes peacefully through the center of town, flooded the restored medieval buildings to a level that had not been seen in centuries. A year later, almost all damage had been undone.
Český Krumlov deserves some quality time. Although many people pop down for a day (and it is possible and worthwhile if that's the only time you have), we recommend spending at least two days to fully appreciate the town without having to rush. Taking a night stroll along the quiet streets with the lit-up castle towering over the town will be a bonus.
Prague Castle (Pražský hrad)

Prague Castle (Pražský hrad)

The Prague Castle (Pražský hrad) was founded around 880 by prince Bořivoj of the Premyslid dynasty. The first stone building in the castle area was the Church of the Virgin Mary of which only remnants can be seen today. In the 10th century, St. George's Basilica was founded and the first Czech convent was established there - St. George's Convent, which now houses a gallery. St. Vitus Rotunda, also from the 10th century, was replaced by St. Vitus Basilica in the 11th century, and it is where St. Vitus Cathedral stands today. Starting in the 10th century, the Prague Castle served as the seat of Czech princes and later kings, and the seat of the Prague bishop. The last large reconstruction of the Castle took place in the second half of the 18th century when it took on a style of a chateau. However, the seat of power was again in Vienna and the Castle continued to deteriorate. After 1989, many areas of the Castle were made accessible to the public for the first time in history, including the Royal Garden, Ballgame Hall, the south gardens, or the Imperial Stables. Today, the Prague Castle is the seat of the Czech president and the most important National Cultural Monument of the Czech Republic. A number of priceless art relics, historical documents, as well as the Czech Crown Jewels are stored there.
