There was restoration work being done at entrance. The rest seemed well maintained and restored in yellow paint and surrounded the magnificent St Vitas Cathedral. A pleasant stroll round the grounds.

We took one of the classicly strange car tours around the new and old town finishing up at the castle. So much to see and take in. We walked part of the way back down then up again through gardens taking the steps back to Charles Bridge. Amazing views. Take your time here its worth it.

Prague Castle and the view from it is beautiful. It is unlike a lot of other castles we have seen because it is really a compound area consisting of palace, cathederal and administrative buildings. You would need to allow an hour or more to see it properly and take some wonderful photos.We did a tour with a very knowledgable guide... More

First of all, do not try to walk up here. Take the tram instead. It's much more pleasant that way. And get there early or late during the day. It's usually very, very crowded in Summer. Do pay to get inside the castle. There are a lot of historically interesting areas like the room where the Czechs threw out pro-Hapsburg... More

When in Prague one must visit Prague Castle. It is massive and historic. Remember to wear comfortable shoes to manage the cobblestones, and bring a bottle of water. The walk through the castle can be exhausting. Do not miss St. Vitus Cathedral and Lobkowitz Palace.

We took bus 22 to get a downhill walk. It had amazing views of Prague from the top. We did not pay to go inside but still had lots to see. The price for entry is ridiculously high.

We went to this castle with a small tour group, which was great given the information passed on to us. The Royal Palace was an amazing collection of buildings along with the cathedral, inside was awe inspiring. Could have spent longer there but for the mass of other tourists

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.
