Beautiful place, I think the bet idea is visit it with guide (in your language). The old style but if you visit it in winter you should take warm clothes. It os very good to visit Gold Road.

This place is good to see and worth spending a day. There are some facts you need to know to improve your trip. The toilet is not for free, you better have some coins with you. Food and soft drinks are extremely overcharged. The situation becomes worse as you go further into the Castle. You will be very surprised with... More

Caught the hop on hop off bus which is great value for money. Arrived just in time for changing of the guard which was pretty good. Stunning views across prague and there is a small Starbucks to get coffee.

Bought a ticket that gets you into multiple areas. Unfortunately, most of these places close at around 15:30 - this isn't made clear and the staff will sell you a ticket at 14:30 without telling you this! You can use this ticket the day after but unfortunately we already had plans. Exterior views of the area was beautiful, but seeing... More

Not that great to be honest. We paid for the full ticket that allows you to go into the most parts of the castle and cathedral. The story of the castle was interesting but it was so cold in the castle I found it hard to concentrate. It was freezing, it was warmer outside. After doing the story of the... More

There is so much that could be said for the castle; firstly it dominates the sky line that and the cathedral inside of it. There are several tickets depending on what you want to see, we opted for the mid one that took 2 hours to get around. What's really nice is you sought of stumble upon things, for instance... More

Beautiful architecture, stunning views and a lovely walk from Charles bridge and over to reach it. Only disappointment was that most of the information points within the castle you have to pay for. We didn't bother with those as walking round was enjoyable enough but it does mean I'm not as clued up on the history as id like to... More

Of course you can't go to Prague without seeing the Castle. It is not exactly a stereotype castle so keep your mind open. Get a ticket that lets you in to all the additional attractions there.

Great to see! A must visit! 287 spiral steps to top of bell tower. Tough going but definitely worth the view that's above! Would recommend!

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.
