Day Tours to Konopiště Castle from Prague

Day Tours to Konopiště Castle from Prague
Prague, being such an old yet lively city has been a tourist mecca for ages, but Bohemia still has a lot more to offer. For this reason, you are invited to discover her central part and the beautiful Konopiště Castle, all easily accessible from the capital. First founded in the 13th century, this renewed fort now holds a large collection of weaponry and antique furniture. An important fact about this place is that it was once the residence of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria who was assassinated in Sarajevo 1914. This terrible event is marked in history as the cause of the WWI. The entire scenery gives off a magical atmosphere and can easily capture the imagination of its visitor. Another place worth visiting is just around the corner. The town of Nový Knín, former gold mining center, now tells a story about its long history dating back to the 9th century. Who knows, maybe a lucky visitor may stumble upon a lost and forgotten chunk of gold.

After having seen this national treasure of Bohemia, one should certainly not stop there. Luckily, most tours of the area include a visit to another medieval gem- the 14th-century Karlštejn Castle. Originally, its builder Carlo the IV., the Bohemian king and Holy Roman Emperor, intended it to as a depository for the most valuable possessions of the country. If you prefer a more personal approach, treat yourself and your group with a private tour. Enjoy a magical carriage ride to Karlštajn castle followed by a lunch at one of the local restaurants and give the Bohemian cuisine a try. Thought the latter building is of gothic style, there is also a castle of Český Šternberk which will take you on a journey of different architectural styles. Rococo, Biedermeier, Empire, and Baroque are just some of the historic periods evident in this amazing place. There are even more beautiful sights and buildin to see in the neighborhood, but it is best to go and explore it individually.

All those curious about the hidden core of Bohemia are invited to come and explore old castles which whisper lines from history books. Take a day off your time and dedicate it to one of the bus tours on offer. Upon your return from whichever tour, one thing is clear, you will cherish Central Bohemia as the country's golden heart.

This tour is just amazing. We were picked up sharp on time. The Van was perfect an new. After picking some people from other hotels we spent some 20 minutes in Wenceslas square. I was amazed by the punctuality of the agency. Right on time came Eva, our guide. For some reason I can't explain my wife and I were the only persons in this tour, so we got a private tour and Eva made sure we felt like that exactly. We headed up to Konopiste castle first. The scenary is breathtaking. The castle an historic value of the place is priceless. We spent time wandering around and the we went inside. This is a very local destination. Not a lot of foreign tourists, so again we had a private tour inside the castle as we were the only people for the tour in English. Our guide was really amazing and the castle's collection is awesome. We finished our visit with a view of the gardens and took our Van to Karlstejn. The road itself is beautiful. We arrived at Karlstejn and started our way to the castle. It is a good uphill walk but definitely worth every step. The town is gorgeous! We stopped for lunch at a local restaurant where the food is great (included in the tour price, except for beverages). After lunch we went to visit the castle. There are no words to describe this place. Makes you go back in time. The surroundings are breathtaking and the castle itself is a jewel. The inside tour is good, but the view from the outside was the highlight of this tour. We went back to prague enjoying Eva's information and beautiful Czech scenery. Overall a great tour. I would definitely recommend it to anyone. So if you plan to visit prague, make sure to make room for this one.

Beautiful scenery and wonderful tour, our guide told us all about the history and legends and showed us both castles which were amazing, truly the gems of history. The furniture, the antiquities, the hidden stories the walls tell you were a beautiful journey back in time. Thank you for the lovely tour. Would recommend.
