Top ways to experience The Story of Prague Castle
The area
Neighborhood: 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.

Interesting mixture of items

We visited here as part of the Circuit A ticket of the castle. The castle was very crowded and we started here as it was less busy. There is a lot of see from various models of the area as it developed to crown jewels and costumes. We really enjoyed the museum.

Good exhibits, but layout needs improvements
Oct 2019
The Story of Prague Castle exhibition is an eclectic mix of themes that collectively tell the history of Prague from the earliest period through its development up to late medieval period. Many of the exhibits were high quality. Everything had at least an English label, but not everything had an English description. The thing I did not like about the exhibitions was the poor layout. It was really hard to guess what order to visit the exhibitions or even the rooms. Without a guide or audio guide, you're left to wander around a room before you figure out the order by which time it's too late.

The exhibition requires climbing castle stairs aI doubt it would be accessible for those with mobility issues.

Sadly no photos allowed.

Compelling exhibits

One of the castle’s most compelling exhibitions, with an outstanding collection of armour and other artefacts from more than a thousand years of the castle’s history. We spent more time here than any other part of the castle.

This exhibit walks you through the History of Prague. The history goes back 1300 years! There are lots of plaques that tell you in Czech and English about the history and relics on display. We were able to view this exhibit with ticket option A that we purchased at Prague Castle. There is an old Bible dating from 1640, bones of people found from 1100 years ago, coins, clothes, jewels, engraved stones, pottery, and so much more! We found this exhibit very interesting but not everyone will.

The Prague Palace is average. The Prague views at the balcony are beautiful. We spent about one hour at the palace.

There are some good exhibits - old crowns and costumes, laid out in several rooms that lead off the main route, but there is no flow and the story is quite bitty.

Very good exposition
Apr 2018 • Family
The Story of Prague Castle is an exposition, which you can see in the Hradcany (Castle of Prague), where you can learn a lot about the Castle and his history, so it is very interesting. It is one of the visits that you can do in the complex of the Castle. Very interesting.

Perfect for history lovers

If you are into History, here you wlll find a LOT of information on how old Prague was founded and ruled.
Many exhibits all in a maze of beautiful Gothic rooms. Sadly they have totally forbidden photography now, even if you have bought the pass.
