First season began with the festive premiere of Smetana’s national Peter Libuse, which was composed for the location.

Prague is dominated by the exclusive landmark of Pražský hrad (Prague Castle), the vast hilltop complex that looks out over the city centre from the west bank of the beautiful Vltava River. Site of a Slav settlement in the 7th – 8th century AD, there’s been a castle here since at least the late 9th century, and since then whoever has had control of the Hrad has exercised authority over the Czech Lands.
Is Czech President still living in the Prague Castle?
It continues to serve as the seat of the president, though the public are free to wander round from the early hours until late at night, since the castle is also home to several museums and galleries.

Visiting the Prague Castle
You can wander freely through most of the streets, courtyards and gardens of the castle and watch the changing of the guard without a ticket. For the sights within the castle (excluding the cathedral) there are two main types of multi-entry ticket available: the velký okruh or long tour (350Kč), which gives you entry to most sights, including the Old Royal Palace, the Basilica and Convent of sv Jiří, the Prague Castle Picture Gallery and the Zlatá ulička; and the malý okruh or short tour (250Kč), which only covers the Old Royal Palace, the Basilica of sv Jiří and the Zlatá ulička. Tickets are valid for two days and available from several places, including the main information centre in the third courtyard, opposite the cathedral, where you can also rent an English-language audioguide (200Kč for 2hr).
Prague Castle Photoshoot
My vision is to provide you the best photographs that you will look back upon as your favorites for years to come you will remember what it was felts like to be with family on vacation, our small tour with little history behind and beautiful time! Those memories will help you to keep your memories forever.
How Long the Family Photoshoot tour takes?
The tour we prefer is 1h to 2,5h. It’s not too short to run everywhere o too long to exhaust.
What to Wear or The Photoshoot
Long gone are the days of everyone wearing a white shirt and matching. You don’t have to have everyone buy a white shirt and jeans. Allow personalities to shine with colors and patterns. Pick a couple of colors and choose clothes that will fit in this color scheme.
Don’t Forget Accessories
Accessories not only add to your outfit but they can be fun to use in photos. Have the man wear a tie for the woman to hold. Necklaces for the kids to play with or hats to hide behind.
Remember the idea is not to create these perfect photos. Family photos are a time to capture who your family is at that time. We are in fall-winter time means there are plenty of accessories you can add for the photoshoot. Consider a fun scarf, cute coat, or stylish hat, the possibilities are endless:)

Erin & Erik’s Family;
Kemal is truly a special photographer. Not only was he very professional and does GREAT work, we learned about each other’s lives and he made the entire experience one-of-a-kind. He was so great with our toddler, even carrying her at one point when we got tired haha! We highly recommend this experience and will treasure the memories we captured with Kemal’s help. Would love to go back each year and renew this experience!
The photo shoot experience in Prague with Kemal was a very memorable one ! It was beyond our expectations . As a family we wanted some beautiful memories of Prague and this was a great opportunity. Kemal was so patient and took time to help us get the perfect shot and location . It was definitely a great experience.

The most popular destinations for daily trips are the castles of Karlštejn and Konopiště, both surrounded by beautiful wooded countryside. Alternatively you can head north, away from the hills and the tourist crowds, to the wine town of Mělník, perched high above the confluence of the Vltava and Labe (Elbe) rivers. Further north is Terezín, the wartime Jewish ghetto that is a living testament to the Holocaust. One of the most popular day-trips is to the medieval silver-mining (area) town of Kutná Hora, 60km to the east of Prague, which boasts a glorious Gothic cathedral and a macabre ossuary. Also another beautiful place is Český Krumlov where you can have daily expedition.
Karlštejn Castle is one of the most places near by Prague. If you are visiting Prague for more than 4 days you should definitely visit Karlstein! and hike around the castle! it’s beautiful colourful and easy hiking road!
History of The Castle
It was established by the Czech king and Roman emperor Charles IV as a place to store the royal treasures, collections of holy relics and the crown jewels. The very impressive layout of the castle buildings from the settlement outside the castle walls right up to the Imperial Palace and the towers rising over it will captivate you with their ingenuity. In the castle Chapel of the Holy Cross, you will then merely contemplate the pictures of Master Theodoric in silent wonder. Set out for the most-visited castle in the Czech Republic and discover the treasures it has hidden for centuries! (wikipedia.com)

History of Divoka Sarka Park
Around the 6th century the Slavs came to this area. In the 7th to 9th centuries was above the Džbán gorge a Slavic settlement, with an area of approximately 20 ha (3 ha fortified settlement).
A gorge in the area is named after the female warrior Šárka, who, according to Ancient Bohemian Legends, threw herself to her death from its cliffs after betraying her lover Ctirad during the Maidens’ War.

In that park still the black woodpecker lives.
There is a lake Džbán (The Pitcher) on the border of the Divoká Šárka reserve area and a public swimming pool located in the middle of the reserver. The water of the pool is supplied by clean and fresh water from the Šárka spring creek that passes through the park and the lake.
