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.

The views over Prague are lovely. The changing of the guard picturesque. The architecture unspoiled. No bullet holes like in Budapest. And nice beer to be enjoyed while overlooking the city.

Having the Old Town and Castle so close, this place is just brilliant tourist attraction. It has a lot of beautiful places to offer; just take your camera, comfortable shoes and give it a go! If you feel tired after few hours of walking, just pop in into one of the Czech restaurants. The prices there are lower compared to... More

It is worth to go, is magical, nostalgic like the movies we watch.   The entire route to get there pretty well. It has so much to see it will take long. Especially the collection of old armor, helmets knights and their weapons are really fantastic. Huge museum that pay a decent amount to get into, you will definitely amaze... More

You don't need to buy tickets really - the cathedral is pretty inside but you can get in for free to see the stained glass. The castle is pretty dull inside - not much to look at apart from big empty room (big enough for jousting tournaments). I guess the Golden Lane was worth a look but again you can... More

The most beautiful church I've ever been to. Do not miss this cathedral. It is the most beautiful one I have ever been in: fantastic sight with beautiful windows, amazing ceilings and is really light.
