Try to visit the castle area on different times of the day to get new impressions each time: morning, afternoon, evenings... Also, use different streets on the way up and down! Since Prague offers a multitude of concert opportunities, why not choose one in a unique setting? St. George Basilica at the small square east of the larger cathedral is... More

This area of Prague is so beautiful. You can see most of it from Prague Castle. It's a wonderful area to explore and see a lot of street performers and entertainers. It's a MUST SEE!!!

We didn't pay to go into anything but had a pleasant time wandering around and enjoying the sights. The gardens are nice also.

Forget the tour and take tram 22 to the main gate (it passes many of the main sites). We in our 70's climbed the tower and the view was spectacular. Guards and changing of the guard was fun. Because of the narrow space it is fun to see the various ways people try to get pictures of St Vitus. We... More

I enjoyed everything I did in Prague including this one. I like to know about different things, and through this walking, I learned a lot about different architectural style in Europe.

Castle District (Hradcany), is a must for tourists because of the many attractions and the fantastic views od the town.The Castle itself, the Presidential Palace, St. Vitus Cathedral, the Golden Street of the alchemists, the Archbishop's Palace are all there. Have in mind that there are a lot of stairs, but the second time we've been there, the bus left... More

Although we didn't go in, you really should visit the castle! Go over the Charles bridge to get there and you get amazing views of the city! Definitely worth the walk :)

Lovely area with lots of green around, great views from the hill on the accross-the-river Old Town and with such a smooth atmosphere you cannot miss it! Head yourself to Letna Park as well...

The view is great, the history is wonderful, the series of buildings to look at are great. We had a wonderful time. We took the hill up and we took the stairs up, the only way to get there is to go up. Loved the Golden Lane, and all of the different parts of the castle district. Be sure to... More

This is such a prominant feature in Prague visitors must go here. Though I think it is prettier from a distance, it is well worth the trip to walk through. I walked here from the Metronome and it was a very pleasant walk through a park.
