Karlštejn Castle And Famous Glass Factory

Karlštejn Castle And Famous Glass Factory

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.

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.

After this fantastic visit, you will be already hungry for sure! No worries, there is a tasting lunch in a cosy local restaurant ready for you. You will enjoy fantastic food in Old Bohemian Style but in a very modern version. Also, some beer or wine tasting will be ready for you.

Important information: Saturdays and Sundays are the glassworks closed. These days the excursion in the glassworks is replaced by the visit to the historical brewery with tasting locally made beers. Price and schedule of the trip remain the same.

The expected return to Prague about 4 PM

Dear customers,

I am deeply sorry to inform you that unfortunately our company will no longer be able to provide any trips and as of today, we are closing all the bookings.

This decision was hard to make and it came as a result of a sudden death of our CEO, who also was my beloved father, and we are not able to provide an adequate experience for you as we need some time to deal with both practical matters and our grief.

I would like to kindly ask you to cancel your reservations yourselves, so you are able to get the full refund as soon as possible.

If you had a chance to enjoy any of our trips with Láďa (Vladimir), I whole-heartedly believe you have enjoyed yourselves and created some unforgettable memories together and I hope as well that Láďa will be remembered in your hearts in the same way that he is in mine. I would be pleased to hear about your experiences with my dad and if you'd like to send me any photos, stories or memories, I greatly encourage you to do so.

Thank you for your understanding and your cooperation in these difficult times.

Should there be any other questions, don’t hesitate to contact me via my personal e-mail: barbora.stejskal@gmail.com or phone: +420 603 382 933
