Plan on spending some time at the Prague Castle. you will come away with well over 1000 years of history in this part of Europe. This should be just one of many stops in wonderful city.

I won't repeat all the positives mentioned by others. Yes, it's a must see, and if you can spare at least 2 hours, preferably 3, buy the circuit A ticket and get an audio guide. You'll get a pretty thorough briefing if each part of the palace/cathedrals as well as a good history lesson. Don't miss the section A Story... More

tour with guide John Paul, a really nice and good mooded guy, who has managed to turn Prague's history into a clear picture to everyone. This is a must-see for sure, since the castle has played a major role in all periods of Prague's history.

This is an incredible building. A must see. It stands so proud against the skyline. The armoury is very impressive and you can try you skills on a crossbow - there is a crossbow firing range which costs 20 Crowns. Then there is the torture chamber...

The Prague castle is a must see when you visit Prague. The cathedral is stunning and the area around it makes you travel with time.

Prague Castle dominates the skyline from virtually everywhere else in the city. Up close it's even more beautiful. Definitely a place for allowing most of a day to.

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.
