The biggest medieval castle in the world doesn't look very medieval thanks to an Austrian make-over. The gardens are really nice too. Most of the castle you can walk around for free until midnight and it's better to come later to avoid the crowds. In the day they do a changing of the guards by the front gate that's fun but not exactly Buckingham Palace. There are some amazing views from the castle and the nearby streets are very quiet and charming.

A good place to learn a bit of history about Prague. The best things to see there is Golden Lane and St George's Convent. The castle view was wonderful: we saw the old town towers, petrin park and petrin tower at the top, the Karlov bridge, neat side streets, roof top terraces, the opera house top and much more. Definately worth the money (the tickets were expensive compared to other places).

The cost of the tickets was counterbalanced by the fact that they were valid for two days and this obviously meant that one didn't end up in culture overload. Lots of the Prague Castle area is free to wander round but the main buildings are not. The best things to see there in my opinion is St George's Convent where the artworks are housed, and St Vitus Cathedral. We saw the Catherdral at around 4 or 5 in the afternoon and it was far less crowded than the following morning when the queues were massive.
Well worth the visit and much enjoyed.

Overall, it was quite nice, especially the park area overlooking the city.

However, what was annoying is that very few guidebooks (like Lonely Planet and AA) emphasize the point that the most picturesque parts of the castle grounds are free, which we didn't find out 'til I noticed that there was no one collecting tickets to get into St. Vitus Cathedral.

The different tickets that you have to buy separately merely get you into an additional amount of various historical buildings that, while interesting, were not worth the price of admission (IMHO).

So if you're just looking to enjoy the scenery and relax, then you can do the whole thing for free. Only buy the tickets to the other buildings if you REALLY want to see them. Otherwise, you'll just be making a donation to the Prague Castle Conservation Society when you don't really need to.

My husband and I were just in Prague and one day we visited the Prague Castle. We bought a combination ticket that included admission to the Castle, the Basilica and the Golden Lane. The tickets were extremely expensive (compared to other castles and palaces we visited on this trip) and there wasn't a lot of bang for the buck! The tickets were about $35 CDN each! I would say that you could skip the castle and the basilica. The Castle was about 3 rooms and a balcony, that's it. The Basilica is nice but, why are they charging you to go in it? The Golden Lane was cute and fun, you can buy a ticket just for the golden lane and I would suggest going in there, a bunch of little medieval cottages that are now little gift shops, Frank Kafka actually lived in one of these cottages for a year! I definately suggest walking up and exploring the castle hill, the highlight of the castle complex is Vitus Cathedral and it is free to get in! My advice, skip the castle and save yourself some money!
