Worth it!

This is well worth the long walk up many stairs just to see the incredible stained glass in the church. Stunning! Wear your walking shoes and take water especially if it's hot.

I'll be honest, I didn't pay for anything here save a picture with two fantail pigeons down the bottom (they were lovely!) - oh, and the toilet. I was shocked by the prices, everything was so expensive! I wouldn't even bother attempting to get a beer or eat here, Prague Castle must be the most expensive place in Prague. I... More

We were here mid May and already flooded with tourists! The castle is beautiful and a tour is available but we opted to venture on our own. Cute village area and shops and cafes in the area. Architecture is truly amazing but difficult to get unobstructed photos due to so many tourists everywhere.

The grounds of the Prague Castle is a location of former royalty, present day parliament, and church. All of this sits alongside common-day owners on the same property. The entrances come with changing-of-the-guard every-hour-on-the hour. And of course, the courtyards has a magnificent view of the city.

This is interesting but so crowded it is hard to see anything, and you are constantly jostled and shoved by so many people it makes it difficult to appreciate anything.

A lot to see. Wonderful sights. You could get there by tram or make your way through the wonderful park surrounding the castle. I recommend it. Students, you get a discount on your tickets. Ask for it!

The castle and surrounding areas are absolutely beautiful to walk around and you don't have to spend a penny. You can climb up the steps and get an amazing view out over Prague. The area is quite hilly so people with mobility issues might struggle to get around the whole area.

The castle consists of several things to visit, such as an old royal palace, a story gallery, a basilica, a treasury, a golden lane, a picture gallery, and so on. Going into the castle area and looking at St. Vitus Cathedral and the outsides of the buildings itself is free; it's crowded, the cathedral is beautiful and you can take... More

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.
