Discover the sights on the left river bank of Vltava River
This half day tour takes place on the left river bank of Vltava River, that is composed by the Prague Castle area and the Lesser Town of Prague. We will start the tour by Strahov Monastery, visiting its fascinating Library that played an important role in Czech history. There are about 200 000 old prints, mostly from the period between the 16th and the 18th century, around 3000 manuscripts and 1500 first prints. There are two splendidly decorated halls: the Theological Hall and the Philosophical Hall often used by film makers as a venue for movie setting.
Alternatively we can visit the Loretto Church, a large pilgrimage destination in Hradčany district. It consists of a cloister, the church of the Lord’s Birth, a Holy Hut and the clock tower with a famous chime.
Then we continue towards the Castle itself. You will discover its courtyards, enter the majestic St. Vitus Cathedral and marvel along the little shops in the Golden Lane. Once finished we will walk down the castle hill and through the streets of the Lesser Town of Prague (crossing the baroque Waldstein Garden) we will slowly arrive to the Church of Our Lady Victorious, housing the Baby Jesus of Prague statue. The tour ends by the Charles Bridge.
