This is high up above the City but the view is to die for! The Castle itself was really beautiful but I was quite exhausted from the walking by the time we got there. One small redeeming factor for me though was finding a Starbucks on the top!

The castle is truly amazing, so much to see and you really do need at least 2 days if not more to explore the area. The views are fantastic. Lots of walking, so wear comfy shoes.

We spent from 10.30am to 5pm at the castle with just a quick stop for dinner. We bought the top price ticket which is only about £10 and gets you in to the old palace, Cathedral, basilica, powder tower, history of castle museum, golden street, Rosenberg palace. There's some truly beautiful things to see here. Some I was less impressed... More

The whole walk around here is great, with nice views of the old city. St. Vitus is a key part if this, but this whole area of town is nice. We got great advice from our hotel: take the tram to the top, then you can slowly make your way back down the hill.

As I stayed just 5 minutes from Prague Castle, I have visited it several times and never regret. You either need to devote it minimum half a day or come there several times. You should start early in the morning and get an audio guide and take your time. Then you can see whats inside and listen to the profesional... More

We were lucky to visit the castle with a very good guide, a girl named Ivana from Pragueando tourist acency. She really knows a lot about the history and art. We started our visit at the Princess Ann's palace and continued our way through the park to the fascinating St. Vitus' church. We saw the changing guards, of course and... More

Prague Castle looks really good from the Charles bridge but there is nothing much to see here. You don't have to buy tickets to the castle unless you want to get inside and visit St.Vitus Cathedral and Golden Lane. Circuit B would be enough. *Student who has student ID can get a discount.

A very very popular attraction, but i did think it was going to be bigger, there is a tower there to go up to get some stunning views of the city.
