This is a must. The buildings are amazing and the views breathtakingly beautiful. Not one for the infirm as it is set high up.

If you approach the castle from the Lesser Town by walking up Neroduva - pretty steep, so maybe stop in a bar part of the way up to recover - you will turn sharp right at the top and carry on up until you get a great view of Prague over the wall to the right. Note all of the... More

The castle and cathedral were much better than we had expected. The best part was the armory which was above the street captured in time

You need to buy a combined ticket here, and it ends up being quite expensive with several of you. The real highlights were St Vitus and Vladislav Hall.

I really loved Prague Castle. To be honest, its the only European castle I've ever visited, so I don't have anything to compare it with, but its amazing. I loved the architecture! I rented one of the audio devices to hear the explanations of various things. I remember almost nothing of the stuff I heard, but the visuals stick with... More

Not like your normal English castle, but beautiful in its own way. Behind is the cathedral also worth a visit. The trip up and down the steps is a bit wearing on a hot day, but worth it. Avoid the taxis the only thing of Prague I was not so keen on.

The Prague Castle was the highlight of our trip to Prague. Simply put, it was incredible. The Cathedral, the Golden Alley, the Defenestration of Prague, all of this should be experienced. The long winding walk up to the castle from the castle district below is not too difficult and gives you a few good views of the city also. Give... More

Wow this is definately something that needs to be seen and spent time going around on a visit to Prague. We went on our first full day as we had checked the weather before leaving the UK and the second day was forecast fog and mist and very cold. They were correct! So we were very fortunate to get to...

St Vitus cathedral is a must for anyone visiting Prague. We were fascinated by the 14th century structure, the elaborate tombs and Czech history. Unfortunately we were there on a cold, windy day so we gave the tower a miss.
