Definitely worth the walk up the hill to see, the castle is stunning and the view is unreal. Was one of the best things we did in Prague, would highly recommend.

Do not expect the same castle experience as you would get in the UK, that said lots of history and well worth the visit. No need to book in advance as it was very quite

I used the bus to reach the castle as it is pretty steep. There is a large number of buildings which form the castle. Some part is not accessible , as it is used by govt. You get a great view from the top.

When i say average place, its compared to the other monument in Prague. I suppose Charles bridge, the astronomical clock and the Old town square are more interesting. Its a huge complex with great architect. Its quite plain. the best thing one must see is the 'changing of the guards'. May be because I visited during winter, even the gardens... More

If you looking for great views and some history this is place for you. Great castle for good price. If possible try to visit castle in the morning as we was waiting about 35 minutes to get tickets. 3 hours should be enought to see all castle.

An amazing place. Looks great on the outside and the inside. Beautiful architectural designs on the outside and the best stain glass windows I've ever seen. Highly recommend.

Staying in Hradcany & Letna

Neighborhood Profile
Hradcany & Letna
Your experience in Prague will never be complete if you do not see it from the top. Hillsides, stretched from the west to the north, provide spectacular views of greenish copper cupolas, narrow cobblestone streets, bridges connecting both river banks and green gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses. Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history. Walking up the hill or stairs to Prague Castle, the historical seat of Czech rulers and the majestic Saint Vitus Cathedral can leave you speechless (and out of breath). Luckily, plenty of terrace cafés overlooking gardens and beautiful parks are available to provide rest and a place to catch your breath again.
