Amazing place to explore, could have spent the whole day, recommendation to get the full ticket and arrive early to avoid large crowds.

Take the lovely walk up to the castle and take in the views as you go..the castle is amazing and the views of the city below are second to none. Try to be up there at midday to watch the changing of the guard...the buildings, church etc are just stunning....

This is a heart of the Čzech independent state! Very nice historical place with lots of landmarks. Additionally you have possibly to enjoy incredible view to city! If you lucky you see ceremonially of honorable guard! It is very recommended

Catch the number 22 tram up to the castle as it is a very steep walk and would take an age to get there. The views of Prague itself from here are amazing .The dining hall was huge and there were many original oil paintings on the walls but it occurred to me that it must have been very cold... More

One could honestly spend a few days here to see all the sights. At least get the 5 spot ticket so you might see and enjoy the highlights. We especially enjoyed the artifacts, helmets, weapons & instruments of torture. It's one thing to see photos in a book; quite another to view in person.

This was a lovely spot, 350ck for full access, the only let down was no maps of the castle to actually know were your going, very heavy security presence but this is to be expected. A must see

Prague castle is great. My wife nearly pegged out getting there but we eventually made it with coffee and cake on arrival.There are varying degrees of tickets to puchase and on the advice of our guide from the previous day we chose option B which was good value and took in all the parts of the castle/cathedral we wanted to...

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.
