“Pretty bare”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

Compared to most European castles, this is really barren. Much more impressive from the outside than inside. Not worth the admission fee, imho.

“Well worth the uphill walk”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

The castle is on a rather steep hill and we wondered if we would be able to make it on foot and we did. It is easy to go up the hill, with lots of places to stop and rest if need be. Once up there, the view of Prague is second to none. You can also make it up the hill on board a small tourist train.

“Good walking shoes a must!”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

With most of the 7 hectacres of this large castle covered in cobblestones, sturdy, thick-soles shoes are a must. The castle grounds are open until 2300 in the summer months, so I recommend visiting after 1800 to get clear pictures of the buildings and also beautiful views of Prague from castle hill without the crowds. On the day of your tour, purchase your ticket at the information center, be at St. Vitus Cathedral at 0900 and your early morning award will be having the cathedral to yourself before the tour groups arrive between 0915 and 0930. A visit to the Treasures of St. Vitus is very interesting and worth the extra cost if you are interested in reliquaries. Housed in the beautiful Chapel of the Holy Rood, these christian reliquaries reflect that Prague was once the seat of the Holy Roman Empire. Do not forget to spend time in the royal gardens as they offer a great place to enjoy a packed lunch or nice rest break before moving onto the next attraction.

“Good, but too many people.”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

There are two possibilities to go to Prague Castle - in the day - too rush and many people. In the evening - nice atmosphere, but everythink is closed :-(

“Castle tour”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

The castle is not furnished which makes it more like a large empty stone building. It is interesting to how the wealthy lived and the area has much to walk around but with an entry fee of $25 US the value was less than expected.
