Overwhelming history of the area, well explained in several languages and with correct labelling of the exhibits - we would actually revisit this site

A place full of fascinating history. When you arrive at the Castle district you can pay for a circuit ticket which allows you entry for many of the sites that this district has too see. It's definitely worth a ticket to get the most out of your journey put of the centre. All information is available in English and in... More

Missed this on first visit to Prague but glad i discovered it second time. Hradcany is a town all on its own with fantastic building and walks within its walls. There is an amazing church and graveyard at the centre which is well worth a visit. Along the top of the walls you get spectacular views of the river Vltava.... More

But you may enjoy your visit more if you take Tram 22 to the Pohořelec stop, then stroll downhill. We noticed most visitors did not purchase tickets to enter the various exhibits. We did feel, however, that the ticket for St. Vitus as well as the St. Vitus Treasury were well worth the investment. We also purchased the "photo permit"... More

Loved this castle. There isnt much in the way of furnishings inside but the building is amazing. You can climb 289 steps to the top of the tower for the view. Allow plenty of time for this attraction. Don't forget golden Lane. Its a street of tiny houses where the workers from the castle lived. A real step back in... More

I don't mean that in a bad way so much but there were a large number of souvenir shops all over. That said, plenty of places to eat and have a drink, amazing buildings and town setting. Somewhere I would certainly recommend wandering through.

Staying in Stare Mesto (Old Town)

Neighborhood Profile
Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
