“Best castle around”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

Take a tour and learn all about this castle and plan to spend half the day there walking up and down stairs and hills. Very beautiful and interesting information to learn and things to see.
On the way down you can stop by the wine restaurant and view the city and enjoy a drink or more.

It is difficult to find where to purchase your ticket and don't lose it as you need it at many check points along the way so keep it handy.
Carry an umbrella as well as it rains in September in this region.

“Not to be missed!”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

If you go to Prague and do NOT go to the Prague Castle, you are missing a fantastic experience. Great history and greater architecture all around. I would go back and do the very same visit I just completed if given the chance. A must see!

“awesome”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

This dominates and overlooks Prague and when viewed from inside just goes on and on .The Cathedral is here also which I have reviewed separately. Only 4 stars as you have to pay to access large parts of the castle. The gardens are also worth a visit away from the crowds.

“Beautiful gardens and grounds”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

Prague Castle grounds are beautiful and the gardens are especially lovely. However, the palace buildings I found kind of boring. The Old Royal Palace (I think that's what it was called) was a beautifully building but there is nothing inside, it was just a bunch of big, empty rooms. The layout was strange too, I felt like I was going all over the place and people were walking in opposite directions in tight hallways and staircases, it didn't have a very good flow as far as touring goes. The views from the Palace are nice since it's set upon a hill, but all in all I wasn't overly impressed. It's good to go since it's a pretty famous Prague sight, and it's nice to just wander around in the grounds, but it's definitely not a luxurious old castle like I kind of hoped it would be! Also, make sure you reserve a full day to see it all.

“A massive castle”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

The biggest castle we've seen. Lots to see but not the usual round of furnished rooms. The electronic guides are very comprehensive and you can skip through them if you tire of listening to lots of history.
