We went here with our 2 yearl old on a stroller. We had taken a taxi to the entrance of the castle uphill and we did the short tour. Most of the museums we could take the stroller though there were a few steps. It is worth the effort as there are several interesting sights although none were jaw dropping.... More

The castle is very big and spread out. Most sections are well maintained and include information in English. You can purchase a variety of tickets depending on your interests and the time you have. If you have the time- allow at least a day to do it justice. Would love to visit again.

Prague Castle is amazing! It's set high above the town with stunning views over Prague. It's free to enter and is stunning right from the minute you arrive with the guards pristine at the gates. There are a couple of courtyards and a beautiful church inside the second one. A must to see.

Prague Castle is a collection of several palaces and church's. You must allow yourself at least 3 hours to get a good look at everything. I also recommend using one of the well qualified guides. The history of this complex is extensive and a lot of the castle is still in use today by the National Government. For anybody on... More

Amazing! Wear good shoes because there's a whole day of walking and so worth it. If you csn though, pack something to eat or find a place out of the castle walls as the food is a bit expensive. But the castles museum is great, cathederal is a must, everything is stunning. A lot to see and do! Go!

This was so worth the effort to get there. Make sure you have comfortable shoes on, the road is steep and cobblestoned. Gorgeous beyond gorgeous sight - breathtaking history and views. You can spend a long time looking at the architecture.

My day spent here turned out to be really nice, but wow, what a bumpy start! To begin with, the ticket area is kind of a mess when they get busy. There isn't any place to queue easily, and the signage is very poor. Stand in one line for tickets, then another for the audioguide? Leave my ID at the... More

We were recommended to take the shorter tour and it was quite the bargain, $25 for two people. Our tour included St. Vitus Cathedral, the palace, St. George Cathedral, and Golden Lane. This was plenty for a half day. I recommend coming back at night as the courtyard is still open. You can take some wonderful night pictures of St.... More
