We had a guided tour here that was interesting and informative. Well worth the effort to visit - fascinating architecture and views over the city. Be prepared for large crowds. Check out the tile roof of the church. Wish I had more time to visit the Harry Houdini Museum.

Since the castle sprawls across a compound comprised of several buildings, many of which have no descriptions, I would highly recommend booking a tour of the castle. We did our tour with Sandemans New Prague Tours and enjoyed it very much!

We toured the Prague Castle as part of a walking tour with Prague Airport Transfers and Free Tours. Watched the changing of the guards on the hour. Rather quirky. The guards are decked out in pale blue blazers and wear sunglasses. They look a bit like a cross between The Blues Brothers and Mr. Bean. The secret is to move... More

Wonderful example of (mostly) Gothic architecture. Stained glass as well as painted glass windows. Lots of history.

We walked through the attached garden to the Castle. There were tons of tourists but it was so very beautiful. We had a great tour and took lots of pictures. We walked down towards the river and continued on to the Old Town area.

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.
