Karlstejn Castle Day Trip from Prague

Czech Republic, Karlstejn Guide (B): Karlstejn Castle Day Trip from Prague

Now that I’ve been living in Prague for a while, I’m falling into the trap of getting into a routine. I go to the same coffee shop three times a week, the same restaurants and bars. And despite the fact that I have a growing list of places I want to go to on a day trip, I always put it off in favor of sleeping in and getting a latte at Monolok.

So I woke up today and put my foot down on my own laziness. I went to the train station around midday and took myself to one of the most famed Gothic castles in the Czech Republic, Karlstejn Castle.

Karlstejn is only about 40 minutes from Prague. If you don’t have a car, the easiest way to get there is by train. You can buy your tickets in advance at the Ceske Drahy national transportation website. However, I recommend buying it in person. There is a huge ticket office in Prague’s main railway station, Hlavni Nadrazi, where you’ll hardly ever encounter a line.
