“The Castle complex is large, rooms small, enjoyment intense”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

The Prague Castle tour, whether you go unguided, recording-guided or live-guided is likely to be one of your best experiences during your trip to Prague. Highlights include the view from the top of the castle towards "modern" Prague and the river bridge, a descent towards the old (can't go down there all the way) catacombs, a glance into the uppermost tombs of the famous-est old Prague nobility, a visit to the feast hall, where they tell stories of the knights jousting IN the hall itself on cold nights (I'd wager ale was involved), and visits in and through various other chambers of the castle, all of hich were on a grand scale, but oddly small in construction for a time period where the average person didn't break 5 foot tall very often. Very much worth the time, so go and look for yourself. You could easily spend an entire afternoon exploring the castle's grounds, just looking at everything.

“Medieval Times in Prague”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

The Prague Castle is THE place you have to visit if you don't have much time in the city. If you have time, well, visit twice or three times. You will find charming details not so obvious at first sight. With two important churches, some palaces, towers and the wall around, it can take more than a day if you want to take the most of it. Unavoidable but completely worthy.

“Prague Castle”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Superb. I went on a walking tour to see Prague Castle and it was excellent, very informative. Loved the long walk up the hill! Beautiful and atmospheric, it was starting to get dark and I couldn't think of a better time to see it.

“Beautiful cathedral and great view of the city!”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

One of the best things about visiting the castle is the view of Prague from the top. The cathedral is beautiful with stunning stained glass windows that reflect throughout the large space.
