Its quite a hike to the top to see the castle but well worth the effort. I was impressed with the beautiful buildings and how clean the castle area is. I also got to witness the changing of the guards which was a nice treat. The view from the top was just okay because the weather was not favorable, but... More

Though good to see and spend some time there, it is still very much a construction zone in many areas. Be prepared for lots of cobblestone walking. Don't wait to buy all of your souveniers from The Golden Lane...some nice things, but not too much.

Do make the effort to visit this attraction, not a castle in the traditional sense bur a collection of large state rooms. Lots of interest, lots of statues. Cafes also available. Views over the old town are marvellous.

It is a beautiful construction and I got really nice pictures on day and night, but in general all Prague is amazing, I really loved it! It is in my opinion one of the few places in the world where you really see a different sight, different architecture, restaurants, stores, etc...

Liked it all even the rain. Prague is a city we have always wanted to see. The Castle is the Frosting on the Cake of Prague. A must see view is from Charles Bridge at night with all the lights.

To get the most out of your visit (and the most value from your ticket cost) allow yourself plenty of time to explore the whole castle area and buildings. We were there for the 12 noon 'changing of the guard' ceremony, which was interesting. St Vitus Cathedral is beautiful inside. We didn't go up the tower, due to poor weather.... More

The views of the city are worth the effort if you walked up from Charles Bridge- OR take the venicular and walk down from there. There are many coffee shops and in winter go for the hot wine sold on the street. Restaurants are more, but the ambiance is worth the extra. Castle is really one big area with the... More

The highlight was of course St. Vitus Cathedral. And the view from the tower was just breathtaking. I will definitely go back there again.

This beautiful Castle is open for visitors at no cost. Charming inside and out, it has a wonderful view of the city, since it's on the top of the hill!
