The nice thing about the pass is the use of public transport. You don't have to worry about tariffs or tickets. Some of the admission staff in the facilities were overwhelmed and could not handle the digital pass. But was then simply waved through everywhere. A list of the objects of the passport is unfortunately missing!!!

This was a wonderful tour! Martina was extremely knowledgeable and covered an enormous amount of history on the tour. The view from the castle is amazing!

Excellent tour … would definitely recommend. Our guide, Ladislav Stoupa, was brilliant. His English was great and his historical knowledge of Prague.

Our guide was really nice and she helped us to see all the best things in Prague.

Amazing attraction for discovering Prada. Great view from the tower.
