This castle was very interesting and worthwhile. We did the audio tour which was very good and informative. If you are in Prague make sure to visit.

If you are in Prague, you must visit this place for sure! Nice view from Vltavas other side of river to old town "staro mesto". And cathedral is beautiful, seems like Paris NotreDame or Wiennas cathedral.

The castle is one of the centerpieces of Prague. Do not miss it. Lots of buildings and outliers to visit while on the property including the St. Vitus Church. We bought the "short" program which let us into five of the buildings, the main ones. This was plenty for us. One highlight was the amazing collection of ancient armor. Now,... More

Greatly enjoyed our visit to Prague Castle. Absolutely beautiful! If you don't go to the castle and plan to visit Prague you'll be missing out. The cathedral is outstanding and the visit to Golden Lane worth the entry price. My only recommendation is to avoid the castle on weekends; it's very crowded.

Our three hour tour of Prague allowed only one hour at the castle. We spent most of the hour in the church, which was truly amazing. We loved the view of Prague from the castle grounds. Don't miss this attraction on your visit to Prague, but allow at least a half day.

Just being in Prague was terrific, but I was overwhelmed by the beauty of this magnificent and amazing historic structure. I learned so much about society at that time. The views of the entire city are simply amazing.

What castle? There is NO castle! Don't expect turrets or moats or anything of the sort. I seriously have no idea why this is touted so much as a place to visit, its a serious walk up a serious hill and all you have when you get there is a (lovely) church and the old castle walls with some tiny...

I can't get enough of Prague Castle and its environs. It is beautiful, the church is overpoweringly so. For me, the highlights were the National Gallery (located inside Sternberský palác - Sternberg Palace) and the Lobkovický palác (the Lobkowicz family history is amazing, but seeing handwritten music by Mozart and Beethoven blew me away).

The view from here is amazing it's definitely worth the walk up the hill. It's fun watching the changing of the guards. Sitting having a coffee at the top & taking in the view is a lovely way to spend an hour or so
