The following opening hours changes will take place on Saturday 9 December:
Open until 12:00:
information centres, ticket offices, Prague Castle Picture Gallery and exhibition in the Imperial Stables: The Windows of St. Vitus Cathedral
Open until 13:00:
St. George's Basilica, Old Royal Palace and Golden Lane with exhibitions, Daliborka Tower and the Story of Prague Castle exhibition

- I. Courtyard, a large part of II. Courtyard and part of III. Courtyard will be completely closed from the morning
- one entire pedestrian passageway in III. Courtyard will also be closed from approx. 9:30 to 12:00, and the same in the afternoon from approximately 13:00 to 15:00
- walking between III. Courtyard and Jiřské náměstí will be possible only via Vikářská Street during the above-mentioned times
We expect that passing through the Castle between the II. and III. Courtyard will not be possible at all between approx. 13:30 and 14:15 due to commemorative reasons.
Due to the size of the event, we recommend visiting Prague Castle only in the early morning hours. It is also possible (depending on the situation) that the Police may have to regulate the entrances to the Prague Castle grounds during the service.
