The Prague Castle is a massive city within a city, literally! There is so much to see and do that I would suggest setting aside an entire day to see all of the sights, including St. Vitus's Cathedral, Golden Lane, Daliborka Tower, the Royal Gardens, and much more. Buying a "multi" ticket, while more expensive, allows you the opportunity to... More

Very gothic type of castle! I like. You can take the tram from the central..( Not really sure what number) or you can be adventurous and hike up there as well. We took the tram up, but on the way back.. We hike down to the city centre. Nice walk towards the bridge and down to the centre during sunset... More

I took the tram to visit and bought the multi ticket. I got there at 7am on Sunday and although the grounds are open the buildings themselves do not open until later. Also since it was a Sunday mass was being held and there wasn't any acces to the cathedral until it was over. It was a beautiful day to... More

You will need money for the loos but otherwise there can be no complaints about this site. Steeped in rich history and free for visitors this site contains a magnificent Cathedral as well as the palace and the beautiful gardens. I couldn't believe the beautiful stained glass windows in the cathedral, they really have to be seen to be believed.... More

Spend a few hours just walking around and exploring South gardens, Cathedral and enjoy amazing view to entire old town. Amazing during autumn when leaves change color, it gets really romantic.

We visited in an afternoon in October (myself and 17 year old son). Stunning views from castle but you can get into bit of it for free. Not sure what the golden lane was trying to be! There were little reproduction shops selling things. It felt a bit contrived in places. I'd visit again but not sure I'd get a... More

We went up to the castle on the 22 tram (Bílá Hora direction), and the venue we arrived at was not at all what we had expected. It is not just a castle but a whole community. We walked around the monastery area, which is very tranquil and then on through it towards the Cathedral. There are incredible views as... More

Its a lovely area to spend some time. The castle is impressive and the gardens and grounds are lovely. You get a great view over the red roof tops of the city, a good photo opportunity. It's easy to get to and worth a visit

I was really disappointed with my visit to Prague castle. Apart from St Vitus cathedral (which is a great but also a typical gothic cathedral) nothing else is worth visiting. What I didn't like: 1. There is a lack of nice and interesting exhibits in the museums of the castle 2. The castle is filled with shops and cafes something... More

A huge complex on a hill overlooking the city of Prague. Wonderful views of the city. The castle complex contains the church of St. Vitus, a towering cathedral with beautiful spires. Don't miss this attraction.
