We went on a walking tour around the castle district which I would highly recommend as there is so much history to be told and learned about Prague.

Fantastic - loads of history, but a long walk up (208 steps), so if mobility is an issue - get a taxi. I The Castle os free to walk around but you need to pay to go inside. The views from the Castle are stunning - an absolute must!

We took a taxi up to the Castle and walked down to the Bridge. We enjoyed the shops and the tea rooms. Great views of the city
