A day trip to the Gothic royal castle Karlštejn and the gorgeous Velká Amerika canyon, with a visit to the traditional Nižbor glassworks. Enjoy a three-course tasting lunch in a charming restaurant! This very nice half-day trip starts in Prague in the morning hours. After a journey of about one hour in a comfortable air-conditioned minibus with refreshments and wi-fi available, we will arrive at the most exciting Czech castle, Karlštejn, founded in 1348 by Charles IV, the most powerful Czech emperor. This monumental castle on a hill was built for storing royal treasures, holy relics, and the crown jewels. We will spend about one and a half hours visiting the most important parts of the castle together. Later we will visit an amazing natural wonder – the Czech Grand Canyon, located near the castle. The unique atmosphere of this partly flooded abandoned limestone quarry will surely surprise you. After about a half an hour-long journey there is one more excursion, to the stunning glassworks in Nižbor, where you can admire the art of traditional Czech crystal glass and the skills of the glassmakers, passed down through the generations, optionally with some shopping at the end of the visit.
