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

There is a tram to take one to the top, but we were on a tour bus and enjoyed the beauty of the place with our tour guide. There are palaces, with colorfully dressed guards, a beautiful church with amazing colored glass windows. The view of Prague from above is sublime

This is walkable but only if you're reasonably fit. Steady climb - nothing too steep, Well worth the effort when you get to the castle/cathedral. What's the point in looking at that beatiful building from the town if you can't get up there and look at it! Loads to look at even when you're on your way down!

Using the Praga card you can have access to almost everything inside of this huge Castle. It´s excellent to visit it! Charming atmosphere, fabulous sights from the Hill and all the architecture around.

The tickets are a bit pricy. I'm not sure if the price is worth it, depending on how long you want to spend here. If you're planning on spending the whole day here, then yes. But honestly, unless you're taking a guided tour or you're an art and/or history buff, a lot of this stuff is extremely specific and the... More

Buying the cheap tickets gets you into the palace, st vitus, the basilica and golden lane. It's good value

We enjoyed a 1-hour guided tour of the castle area but mostly of the cathedral. It was during this tour that we learned that our ticket was good for 2 consecutive days…something that would be useful to know in planning a multi-day visit to the city.

I only rated this 4 stars because just recently they raised the price of admission to the castle itself and I can honestly say, of all the castles in the Czech Republic (of which I've visited about 40) Prague Castle is the least remarkable *inside* considering the cost of admission. The cathedral is breathtaking and worth a visit (remove your... More
