What to Expect
Leave Prague behind and travel back to the 14th century with our tour to Karlestejn Castle, one of the most impressive Gothic castles in the Czech Republic. As you drive through the picturesque countryside, arrive at Karlestejn Castle, in the middle of dense forests not far from the capital.
Founded by the Emperor Charles IV, Karlestejn Castle became a treasury for the crown jewels and holy relics. Dominating the hilltop is the 60 meter high and separately fortified Great Tower built upon the massive walls that houses the Chapel of the Holy Cross.
From there, you can step down to the Marian Tower, the five-storied Imperial Palace and come to the Well Tower and Burgrave's Palace located at the lowest level. After your guided tour, return to Prague.
