I had a fabulous time at the Prague Castle. We walked right past it because the outside didn't resemble what I thought the castle would look like. Though it had guards outside. I don't know how I didn't realize. But once you go in it is huge! Beautiful architecture and so much to experience. The cathedral, golden lane, powder tower,... More

We did not go inside the castle itself but walking around it was more than enough, there is a security check before you can wander around the grounds and there was a festive tree and Christmas stalls inside, the hot chocolate was amazing- like melted chocolate in a cup and there was choice for food, drinks and local crafts as...

I am so glad we visited the castle, the walk up looked a bit forbidding but the number 22 tram took us straight to the path way in. As with most of Prague you seem to spend most of the time looking up at the buildings and the stunning details. Recommend a hot chocolate and baileys in the cafe,

We didn’t get to go in because the line was a mile long, even in the middle of November, but the square surrounding it is beautiful. There was actually some sort of changing of the guards ceremony when we were there, so that was interesting as well. I’m not too disappointed to not have been able to get into the... More

What a fabulous castle it is, it's more like a little town. The views from up there are beautiful. There's cafes & some little artisan shops too. If you time it right & get there for on the hour, you can watch the changing of the guards. You need to be fairly able to walk up to the castle as... More

The jewel of Hradčany Square is of course, the Hradčany itself. Prague Castle stands perched high above as a quintessential symbol of Prague. Even standing at the river looking up I couldn't really compute how large this place really is. The largest medieval castle in the world, it is still today the seat of power in Prague. Its building spans Romanesque, Gothic... More

The castle is located very nice, at a higher altitude so you can see a nive view over Prague! We got to see the change of guards and it was nice.

The views from here cannot be rivalled. There is a starbucks at the top of the stepts with a great 'selfie' spot with a backdrop you'll never forget. The queues to enter the castle can take a long time but some tour operators offer a queue jumping ticket for an additional charge.

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.
