Prague -- the Czech Republic’s dazzling capital city, home to over a million people and with over 1,100 years of fascinating history to explore – is one of the most exciting European cities to visit.

Enjoy the vivacious culture, hearty cuisine and historical architecture of the Czech Republic when you extend select Danube River journeys with our optional land package in Prague!

The Highlights of Prague's Old Town

During your included walking tour, you will learn about Prague's history while strolling through the Old Town Square. It dates back to the 12th century and is a protected UNESCO World Heritage Site. From the square you can see the Týn Church, also known as The Church of Our Lady before Týn, which overlooks the Prague skyline with its over 260 foot towers and Gothic spires. Inside, Prague’s oldest pipe organ (built in 1673) and Baroque altarpiece from 1649 always impresses visitors. Dominating the square itself is the Gothic Old Town Hall, home to Prague's astronomical clock.

The astronomical clock is one of Prague's most iconic sights, and you will see it as part of your included tour in the city. This colorful medieval clock was originally installed in 1410, making it the third-oldest astronomical clock in the world and the oldest one still in operation. Its astronomical dial displays various details, representing the Sun and the Moon’s position, a calendar dial and of course, a frame to tell time. Four wooden figures surround the clock, representing Vanity, Greed, Lust and Death (the latter of which is represented by a skeleton). Each hour, as the skeleton rings the bell signifying an hour lost, the other three figures immediately shake their heads ‘no.’ After all, no one wants to lose time!

Iconic Prague Sights

Prague Castle, originally built in the 9th century, is the largest ancient castle in the world, home to the Bohemian Crown Jewels and the current official home of the President. There are numerous gardens, churches, residences and even a vineyard within the castle grounds – and visitors may see the Changing of the Guards. A visit to this castle is included in your optional land package, either as part of a guided walking tour or as part of an active hike where you will explore the castle grounds.

The Gothic-style Charles Bridge is lovely for a romantic stroll any time of day (or night). The main bridge in Prague, the historic passageway crosses the Vltava River and is embellished by 30 statues and statuaries of various saints. Guests on our "Golden City of a Hundred Spires" walking tour will have the opportunity to walk across this 14th-century pedestrian-only bridge to Prague's city center.

Explore the wonders of Prague as part of your pre- or post-river cruise land package when you reserve select Danube River itineraries: Christmas Markets on the Danube, Iconic Christmas Markets, Blue Danube Discovery, Romantic Danube, Melodies of the Danube, Magna on the Danube, Grand Danube and Legendary Danube.
