Feel free to learn about the world famous Czech Glass and crystal while discovering Czech countryside with a knowleageable local guide.

There are far too many castles in the Czech Republic but Karlstejn Castle occupies a wholly exceptional position among all of them.

It didn´t originate as a representative royal seat but it was intended to serve as a place of safe-keeping for holy relics and the Czech crown jewels.

Karlštejn Castle was founded by the golden king of Czech history, Charles IV, and ranks among the most impressive of all Bohemian chateaux and Castles. The castle approach includes a scenic walk through a local village with a whole host of shops and attractions.

Set in romantic woodland a short distance from Prague, Karlštejn allows visitors to experience the natural beauty of the Czech countryside and glimpse some typical local villages.

In case of your interest you may choose to combine the visit to Karlštejn and Glassworks factory with a tour of the nearby Krivoklat Castle or the Koneprusy caves.

Testimonials

Awesome personalized tour of Czech countryside

We had a full day hiking tour with Kamil through the rock towns of Cesky Raj plus two stunning castle ruins. It was hands down the best day of our two week vacation in Europe! Kamil tailored the tour just for us. He was a knowledgeable, entertaining guide and gave us some great insights into Czech history, culture, and politics. He even found us a gluten-free meal in a traditional small-town restaurant! I would HIGHLY recommend booking a tour with Kamil – if we are ever again in Prague we will definitely contact him.
