Stunning views

This is well worth the walk up, especially on a clear day as the views are amazing. The history is great and there are some lovely places to eat and drink nearby.

I was very excited about visiting the castle after hearing so many exciting facts about it. I was a bit disappointed that we really didn't see a "castle." We did visit another Cathedral and got to see Prague's own changing of the guard. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable...almost TOO knowledgeable as we seemed to stop about every 10 feet...

The castle itself is lovely and the surrounding building are majestic. It can be a steep walk up 100s of stairs to get to the entrance. There is an alternative. Take Tram 22 to the top of the hill and enter through the main garden gate. The line may be longer but it is an easier approach. Any entrance you... More

The complex that is represented by Prague Castle is quite large and meets all requests - there is an impressive cathedral and a lot of other old buildings and streets and exhibits, and not to forget the view over the city! As some others reviewers said, it is not the easiest to get around, there could be some improvement in... More

It is more like a walled city than a traditional castle. That is until you walk up to the outer walls and look up, way way up. Massive. The church inside is the highlight. Lots of things to see. Hit golden lane if you like armor and swords. Good times.

Amazing views of Prague, and very historical. Would be nice to have more of the complex available for viewing by the public. We went in December, so they had a small Christmas market near the cathedral, which added some charm. Would visit again.

A place where you can breathe in all the past centuries history and see interesting artefacts, art or just something different. The "jeleni prikop" is a real treasure in summer time when everything is green and blooming, a lovely park. Signs and info are also in foreign languages and you will not be disappointed with the view to Prgue, from... More

Right on the hill, it guarded the historic Prague and served as administrative center for the Austrians. Within this vast compound, you find the Veits cathedral, the Wladislaw hall and many more. You can also visit the temporary home of Kafka, so massively overpriced and overrated. And you can enjoy the magnificant view over the historic center.

Staying in Hradcany & Letna

Neighbourhood Profile
Hradcany & Letna
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.
