“Expensive and empty”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

The ticket was 350 Kr, but the treasury is not included, and you have to pay separately for the toilets. One pee cost 10 Kr. :-)
The staff is rude and the whole place closes at 5 PM, even in the middle of the holiday season. The castle is empty there are absolutely no furniture, decorations, or anything, just the pure walls.
You have to buy photo ticket for 50 Kr, but it's not valid for the historical exhibition. Sadly on other places there are no things to take pictures about, so it's not worth to buy the ticket, and it's not worth the money and the time to visit the whole castle at all.

“A must see in Prague”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

This is a must see when visiting Prague, enjoyed the gardens and the great panoramic views of the city very busy with tourists of course. Did not go on any paid tours so hard to comment on that part of the castle.

“Beware the toilet attendants!!”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

This is obviously a must see in Prague and boy is there a lot to see. We were there fairly early in the day and left in the early evening. The old houses, the cathedral, the old buildings, the history, the gardens, all wonderful. The downside - the dirty toilets and the toilet attendants who demand payment if you want to pee, will push cubicle doors open on you if they think you have not paid and will even run after you shouting if you have got out without paying! I would not have minded if the toilets were clean and well maintained but they were not. This and the generally dour, sour faced approach of people in Prague is the downside of a visit to this beautiful city. Tourist chiefs buck up your ideas!!

“Nice panoramas.”
Reviewed August 21, 2013 via mobile

You can see some areas of the city from here to take some nice photos, if you're into that. The buildings themselves are beautiful and fantastically large. When we went there was a ton of tourists there no matter where you went within the castle area.
