Great look at history and life in Prague

Buy the ticket that gets you into the four main sites, and you get a great view of everything on this property. The church is amazing, and the artist's row was quite educational.

The castle area was hard to outline. It was more a cluster of buildings than just a "big castle". It was very cold inside the castle and churches!

You can walk up to the Castle from the Charles Bridge or take a tram. Has guards like Buckingham Palace. The Cathedral within the Castle is amazing, but you do pay extra to go inside. The view from the Castle is stunning, taking in the river and all of Prague

Very beautiful castle and worth a visit, even if you want to view it from the outside (there is a charge for going inside)

Lots more than a castle, you will spend a couple of hours looking around up there. You can get the 22 tram that will bring you up. get a ticket for about 10 euros that will get you into all the different places there

If you try to arrive before one o'clock, you'll catch the changing of the guard. Not quite as spectacular as Buckingham Palace but a spectacle just the same. Architecture is stunning as is the stained glass in the cathedral...awe inspiring

Not so wow the castle itself, the basilica inside is cute and also the view over the city. Worth a walk when it's sunny.

Staying in Hradcany & Letna

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.
