The castle district is mainly recognized by the amazing St Vitus cathedral rather than the castle building. The Castle is a normal building; I didn't find any special architecture about it. The best thing about the castle is the historic things exposed and the history behind it. If you look at other reviews on the castle you will see that... More

Very good price! Different tickets can be purchased, would recommend the one that gives you access to everywhere. Spent over half a day walking round. Was fairly busy which did slow things down. Definetly worth a visit.

This is an interesting place to visit. Tickets are purchased to visit various buildings in and around the castle so it can be a long visit. We opted to visit the cathedral, parts of the palace and Golden Lane.

We got off the bus and walked across a bridge that used to be the moat. As we turned left and I got my first view of the Cathedral (which at this stage I thought was the castle) was WOW!!!!!! You can go into the first part of the cathedral for free, but if you want to have a look... More

The Iron Curtain kept Prague's haunting beauty a secret until recently. Prague’s unique cityscape as one of few cities surviving after World War II, and so full of the charm and glamor of old Europe, makes it a pilgrimage site for architecture aficionados- home to an immense collection of jaw-dropping architecture from Art Nouveau to Cubist, to Neo-Classical. You can... More

A marvelous place to visit, fantastic different types of architecture. It was a hot day when we visited and quite tiring but I am glad we persevered, changing of the guard was impressive, and the views over the city were breathtaking. It is a must see in Prague

Prague Castle is the largest complex in Europe that is a castle. It is like a small city. Take the audio tour as it is very helpful. The cathedral is especially impressive. Stop for lunch at an outdoor cafe (skip the goulash). Leave 3-4 hours to do it justice.

Unbeleivable veiws from the castle, the changing of the guard well worth watching. A trip across Charles bridge is very worth while. But Prague is so much more.

You cannot fail to notice Prague Castle on the city skyline. It is dominated by the spire of St. Vitus' cathedral and occupies quite a large area. If you can, brush up on your Czech history before you visit because every part of the castle has historical significance. We walked around the cathedral before mass, then visited the old royal...
