The queue as others have stated goes down quite quickly, it's for security to look in your bags. The tickets are priced well with different 'circuits' so you can decide which parts of the castle attractions you want to see that day and pay accordingly. Some really interesting stuff to look at and all the information boards have multiple languages... More

After going through security check you can walk round the grounds/cafe for free, however well worth the 250 koruna to go down Golden Lane and see inside the state halls although very little furniture, the views are fantastic.

We visited the Castle on our second day in Prague. It is huge! Unfortunately at 17:00, the ticket office was already closed so we could not visit inside, but you can go to the inner center of the Castle right after the security check.

The walk up to the castle was a great reminder of how out of shape I was. It was beautiful, and a great view - you can see all of Prague! Definitely worth visiting.

Take the tram number 22 up the hill. The changing of the guards was a nice thing to see. You could spend all day here! For some places you must buy a ticket which we did and it was worth it. The views from there are amazing!

Many neat things to see here, but a little pricey to go inside! It's free to walk around outside, but inside the different cathedrals, palaces, and buildings is even more interesting.

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.
