allow a full day to see everything in the castle area. We chose a ticket which included the St Vitus Cathedral, golden lane, palace and tower. Golden Lane is very interesting and has a large display of armour on show.

Had heard and read that this is a must do....hmmmmm ........look it was worth the effort to get there.....we recommend taking tram 22 all the way to the top of the hill. You get off at the back of the cattle and can walk through the the gardens which are very nice. The cathedral is very impressive although if you... More

We enjoyed the walk to the castle from Old Town, taking in the character of the neighborhoods along the way. We purchased the most basic ticket and felt like we had a thorough tour. Beautiful place to explore. Early in the day is best to beat the crowds.

We walked around the interior and exteriors, and purchased the A ticket, which had entrance to 4 sites. It was enough to see the sites to get the feel for them, but not sure it is really necessary. The changing of the guard at noon was a nice touch.

You can see the castle at the top of the hill from all over the city. Easy to walk to over The Charles Bridge from Old Town. You can probably spend a whole day there easily. The changing of the guards is interesting. I also sat in a large old room with great acoustics and listened to a string band... More

Wherever you go in Prague, Prazsky hrad is there, imponently guiding you through the streets. From a distance, it's like looking back into the past: you don't quite believe your eyes, it seems to be something right out of a medieval movie. At night, it's an incredible sight to see. When you actually visit, you get a priviledged view of... More

It's huge! So you can't hope to do a "quick" visit. [ Well it is the largest castle in the World. so they say] It is very impressive, but it is also very busy, so be prepared for crowds. You can go into the grounds and around the outside of the area, free of charge, but to get the full... More

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.
