Your experience in Prague will never be complete if you do not see it from the top. Hillsides, stretched from the west to the north, provide spectacular views of greenish copper cupolas, narrow cobblestone streets, bridges connecting both river banks and green gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses. Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history. Walking up the hill or stairs to Prague Castle, the historical seat of Czech rulers and the majestic Saint Vitus Cathedral can leave you speechless (and out of breath). Luckily, plenty of terrace cafés overlooking gardens and beautiful parks are available to provide rest and a place to catch your breath again.

Hradcanske Namesti is the beautiful square up in the Castle District ( Hradcany ) that brings you into the Castle and Cathedral.
On this square you can view some of the most stunning palace buildings in this city including Sternberg Palace, Archbishops Palace and Martinicky Palace, there's also some great statues here including one in honour of Tomas Garrigue Masaryk plus two splendid looking Marian Column's, its busy every day on this square as this area is a major tourist destination, if you're planning a holiday to Prague its most definitely well worth checking out.

If you're visiting Prague Castle it's nearly impossible to miss Hradcanske Namesti ( Hradcany Square ) .
Hradcanske Namesti showcases some of the most beautiful palace buildings in Prague and is the grandest looking square in this beautiful Bohemian city ,Archbishops Palace ,Martinicky Palace ,Sternberg Palace are all found around the square ,there's a great statue in honour of Tomas Garrigue Masaryk ,the very first president of Czechoslovakia,the street lamps on this square are works of arts in themselves ,it's just a great square to check out ,my twin brother Stephen and I were in the Castle District over the Christmas period were we visited the wonderful Christmas market held in the castle complex ,we walked through Hradcanske Namesti as the snow fell ,looked amazing ,it's a square to most definitely check out if you're planning on visiting Prague.

Its a beutiful square just outside the Matthias gate in Hradcany / Castle district.
It has some beautiful buildings surrounding it, most noticeably, Prague Castle itself.
If you are there at midday, you will see the changing of the guards full version but the guards also change hourly through the square. If you visit the castle, take a few minutes to have a wander around the square to take in the sights.

The guards change every hour on the hour but noon everyday was the changing of the guards completely. The people pack the whole area to see what is going on. There is also a tour as well.

Really nice, peaceful, large open space at the top of the hill... Surrounded by really nice buildings. Worth a little time...

First of all, it was quite a climb to get there, but is worth the effort.
The square is surrounded by the famous Prague Castle, but also by several other palaces (Svbhwarzenbergsky, Saxe-Louenbourg. Toskansky, Martinicky and Archbishop), the National Gallery and the Fortna Convent.
Sounds like there is a lot to do, but apart from the waiting line for Castle entrance, the square is not very lively.

One of the important squares of Prague. Very large, cobbled and surrounded by very important buildings: Prague Castle, where the presidency is located, Archbishop Palace, Prague National Gallery . From the south side you have a beautiful view of Prague.

Worthwhile spot to stand in line for the security check to the castle. When waiting with companions it's good to step out of the line and browse the sights, like an ornate gas lamp post, a pretty monument and the ornate facades of surrounding buildings. There is also a cool spot near the Gate of the Giants (check those out too!) to have a chill and admire the view of Mala Strana.
