Walk up the hill.This has served during the Hapsburgs and was the site where the first president was elected in 1990 There are great views of the city and many things to see including the great hall. Hall ways that they used to bring in markets including horses.

On Sunday mornings at 1130 there is a free English tour..... It was excellent, now he does work for tips at the end of the tour, which is about 90 min. Little bits of information about the castle and the cathedral that you would never have known.... Definitely worth the time. I am not sure if the tour runs every... More

After crossing Charles Bridge you go/take a cable car to the castle (no 22). Lot to be seen there. Gardens, museum, church, cafes, art galleries. Great!!

It's a bit of a walk but a great view of the city from the gardens at the top. Well worth the hike to see the architecture of the church inside the castle.

First of all, you will need an entire day to see everything. Get all of your tickets for entrance to everything you want to see ahead of time. This will save you a lot of steps. Spend the money and get a headset. It will be worth your while. This castle was once the capital of the Holy Roman Empire.... More

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.
