Though the castle and all it buildings are wonderful in themselves the walk across the Charles Bridge and then winding your way up through the narrow streets and many steps make the destination all the more appreciated . Have a beer or a coffee in one of the many courtyard cafes or just savor the amazing view !

Prague castle is place at Prague not to be missed. As in any fairytale experience start down the great stone stairs case, up to gardens with outstanding view of the old city. Best of all is 14 century St. Vitus cathedral with gorgeous gargle at every corner. Must see.

We walked up to the castle from the old town, the castle is huge with so many things to see, the architecture is amazing, at night the lights brings it to life, all thanks to the rolling Stones :-) and if you want to visit it. Then buy the ticket before Hand and try to come before 10am

Take plenty of time to make sure you see as much as possible. There is so much to see and do. Metro station Malostranská is close by.

Prague castle is a part of world heritage. Incredible conservation , no kitsch ,a walk into the history . Wars , nature could not distroy this masterpiece. Take a minimum a half day to walk into the castle , but you can visit this place in 1 or 2 days. Unique , no copy-paste.

Prague Castle is a wonderful place to visit - from the cathedral to the golden lane. There are places where you have a beautiful lookout over the city of Prague & a wander through the gardens is a great way to avoid the crowds and enjoy the peace.

Well, it's not a fairytale castle but more like a series of buildings at the top of a steep hill. The views of the city were breathtaking, especially the spot where I could see the wonderful red roofs all together. I give it four stars because it's not like the Bavarian castles that really look like castles. But I could... More

Huge and Amazing ...Highlight for us was the GOLDEN LANE. We took the Prague Pass and hence, could go to all the different museums in the Castle. It was worth spending 3-4 hours in the castle and understand the bohemia history,

Its a bit of a hike up to the castle but you can take a tram. watching the changing of the guard of just take in the architecture its well worth the effort. The views over the city are beautiful.

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.
