On the one hand, Prague Castle is astonishing beautiful, the views of the city are very romantic and the fact that you could visit it in combination with other attractions such as St. Vitus Cathedral is a pretty good deal. On the other hand, the amount of people, especially tourist groups visiting the Castle complex could drive anyone insane. It... More

I might call myself privileged to visit Prague several times (even this year ) and to find this wonderful city every time with a new beauty especially its castle which stand above the city with a remarkable view. You can reach the castle from different ways, for the elderly I might recommend the tram which stops not far away from... More

Absolutely stunning, gothic features. Very very clean, fantastic architecture, if your lucky you will see the changing of the guard. The spires, turrets etc absolutely fabulous. There is a coffee shop and also somewhere to eat. Just away from the Castle there are many bars and cafés and shops selling local wares.

The attractions themselves are good, but overpriced. The only reason to pay for a ticket is if you're really interested in the history of the palace. Most of the Castle itself is free to explore, and the views are 100% free. If you are genuinely interested in the history of Prague Castle or have extra crowns to blow, the exhibits... More

Get the tram up to the top and walk down the hill - take a seat in the park near the top and enjoy he view if it is sunny. Then take your time and walk down and see the castle and cathedral.

It is very hilly so make sure you are fit & have had a healthy breakfast with plenty of fluids to keep hydrated. It will take at least 1/2 a day to explore. It is close to the Charles Bridge & there are beautiful gardens to explore. There are plenty of statues on the bridge as well as a few... More

Probably the best attraction in Prague. Really interesting and St. Vitus Cathedral is amazing. Buy the ticket for all of the attractions in the castle as they are all worth seeing

We had a lovely visit to the castle. We purchased a multiple site ticket and saw almost everything. The Cathedral was beautiful. Loved the history. The Golden Lane was fun to envision oneself living in that time period. We had a nice lunch at a restaurant, just as you walk up the hill. Can't remember the name of it. Very... More

We took half a day. Had a late breakfast not far beyond Charles Bridge and a good locals tavern/ pub lunch on the way back down. The cathedral is impressive if a bit dark and it was useful to have the information from a guide just as it was to hear again the windows and horse stories about the administrative... More
