Meet your guide in central Prague and start your 3-hour walking tour along Prague’s Royal Route — the coronation path taken by Czech kings between 1438 and 1836.
Cross the Vltava River and admire UNESCO-listed Prague Castle perched above the city. See the Gothic masterpiece that is St Vitus Cathedral and discover how it served as the coronation venue for 28 Czech kings, and remains the seat of the Archbishop of Prague.
Stroll around the elegant Mala Strana neighborhood spread under the castle cross the iconic, 14th-century Charles Bridge as your guide recounts facts about the coronation parades that processed over the river.
Pass the Baroque statues along the bridge and make your way through the historical alleys to the Old Town Square. Admire the Tyn Church, St Nicholas Church, Town Hall and Astronomical Clock, as your guide shares stories of how the surrounding buildings would be festooned with banners and decorations for every coronation.
Continue through some of the oldest streets in Prague past Gothic and Romanesque buildings, and stop to see the Municipal House, a beautiful Art Nouveau building on the site of the long-gone Royal Court, the palace of the Czech monarchs where the coronation processions began.
Stop by at Wenceslas Square, dominated by an equestrian statue of King Wenceslas, and finish your tour at the original starting point.
