We visited Prague Castle, which is absolutely huge! We took the shorter tour and visited about 5 or 6 of its top and most interesting attractions we were told. The castle and cathedrals were more stunning on the outside than inside we found, with each building being empty of any contents, so that lacked a little bit of character as... More

What we know as Prague Castle is actually a huge complex of museums, churches, palaces, and gardens. The immense Gothic cathedral of St. Vitus is dominant on the skyline. The Castle complex, high on its hill above Prague is quite impressive. Worth spending a day there.

We were excited about going to the Prague Castle and did it on our first day in Prague. It was interesting and probably worth doing but in the end we weren't that impressed. It is less of a castle and more government buildings and the places tourists can go aren't that exciting. The treasury was nice though and the views... More

We went to Prague Castle and as we were there at 12 noon we saw the changing of the guards which was just like a show really entertaining.

Staying in Hradcany & Letna

Neighborhood Profile
Hradcany & Letna
Your experience in Prague will never be complete if you do not see it from the top. Hillsides, stretched from the west to the north, provide spectacular views of greenish copper cupolas, narrow cobblestone streets, bridges connecting both river banks and green gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses. Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history. Walking up the hill or stairs to Prague Castle, the historical seat of Czech rulers and the majestic Saint Vitus Cathedral can leave you speechless (and out of breath). Luckily, plenty of terrace cafés overlooking gardens and beautiful parks are available to provide rest and a place to catch your breath again.
