The Story of the Prague Castle

Tours for visitors A

The Story of the Prague Castle

The permanent exhibition The Story of Prague Castle offers a view of more than thousand years' history of Prague Castle.

The exhibition tells the story of the main castle complex in the country and the people connected with it - from the rulers and presidents to the aristocrats, courtiers, famous artists, builders, architects, scholars, tradesmen and servants. It is a story of a complex that conceals the mystery of the last place of rest of the most important Bohemian rulers and saints, a place that houses the Czech crown jewels and the St Vitus treasury, but also a place that serves as the dignified seat of the head of the Czech Republic.

Where you can find the exposition:

The exposition can be found in Old Royal Palace, on its gothical floor. You can get there from the 3rd Courtyard or from St. George's Square.

9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in summer season (1. 4. - 31. 10.)
