You can truly spend all day here, but after a while it gets confusing remembering who built which cathedral or which uprising occurred when between the Protestants and Catholics. It is not to be missed, however, it you visit Prague.

One of the largest castels in the world with gorgeous stained-glass windows in the cathedral along with a giant tomb made of silver. Multiple chapels to see along the way of varying age and decor. My kids loved the armory with all the weapons and suits of armor on display. The Golden Alley with the tiny apartments was interesting in... More

There is not a lot to say about this. It is simply a must do while in Prague. The castle is huge so allow a day to do it justice, but you can buy lesser tickets with access to fewer parts of time does not permit. There are plenty of cafes and other rest areas inside the castle walls to... More

Excellent place to visit. Very refreshing. No much crowds compared to other attractions. It's crowded inside the cathedral. Interesting facts. Guide was very good in explaining about the castle & St Vitus Cathedral. Missed the changing of guards at 12 pm. Castle gardens is very good. There was also small market in the garden & folk music.

We planned badly and had only three hours to tour this amazing place. It is huge. It is stunning. It is a must see for visitors. We found the audio guide to be only mildly useful; some interesting tidbits, but we got tired of holding it to our ear, working the cameras with a frenzy, and trying not to let... More

Stojí za to navštívit. Ale jsou zde předražené restaurace, a dostupnost není nejlepší. It is worth a visit. But there are overpriced restaurant, and availability is not the best. Es ist einen Besuch wert. Aber es gibt überteuerte Restaurant, und die Verfügbarkeit ist nicht die beste.

The first day we walked to the castle visiting a lot of the places on the way there, we then spent the afternoon exploring around the castle, we enjoyed ourselves so much we came back the next day and explored the inside of the castle buildings and churches, even though we hadn't planed for the extra day we are so...

Brilliant! We didn't go inside and just focused on exploring the area around the castle but it was worth it anyway! The views are magnificent. The walk to the castle was enjoyable as we passed many bars, restaurants, souvenir shops etc. Definitely worth visiting even if you don't plan to go inside.

Very nice places to visit. You can see good part of it for free, but you will loose the amazimg church. The internal part of the castle is not so nice but if you pay to see other atteactions, should go.
