First we take you up to the Prague Castle area by public transportation or the transport of your choice. We will walk through this Hradcany district visiting the Loreta, the church with the Casa Santa and the Black Madonna, the Strahov monastery with it's famous baroque library, walk past the Archbishops Palace and other interesting areas along the way to the castle. This area was first settled in the ninth century and was the home of our kings and queens for many years. Now it houses the office of the president of the Czech Republic, several museums, and more. We will go inside the St. Vitus Cathedral, view the resting places of our St. Wenceslas and St. Nepomuk and admire the beauty of this grandiose cathedral. Then we go inside the Royal Palace where the, for its time unusually large, Wladislav Hall is located. It is 62 m long (186 feet), 16 m wide (48 feet) and 13 m high (39 feet) without any center support! Among other festive purposes, it is the inauguration hall of our presidents today. Then we leave the palace and walk past the remnants of the first church here, built by Borivoj in 882, and down through the Little Quarter. We then visit the Infant Jesus of Prague in the church of Our Lady the Victorious, where your tour ends. If you are booking the tour "Prague Old Town" one day and "Prague Castle Area" another day, which we highly recommend, another site is substituted for the Infant Jesus of Prague so you don't see it twice, as the itineraries would suggest. The Loreta is closed on Mondays. Another church is substituted or please avoid this tour on a Monday.
