Prague Castle is one of the largest ancient castle in the world,The castle buildings represent virtually every Gothic architectural style. Worthwhile to spend some time here. But be prepared to spend a good 4 to 5 hrs. There are some circuits to purchase. Imho. Circuit A, basic circuit consisting of 10 vital locations enough to gain insights.

The castle is stunning, it is a must in your visit to Prague. You can get the no. 22 tram and get off at the top and go in the main entrance, then walk down through the castle and down a long lane. There is a metro stop A at the bottom of the hill, or pick up another tram.... More

The castle and grounds dominate the Prague skyline and is should not be missed. The castle, cathedral, and grounds are fantastic. The buildings are well looked after and the architecture is truly unique. For around £12 you can easily spend the whole day here. If walking from the other side of Charles bridge it is quite a climb so if... More

Amazing views from the castle! Take tram 22 from the old town. Don't pay for the entry fees, just wander around the grounds and take in the sights and views. You can wander into the cathedral without buying a ticket, which is the best part.

Not what one might traditionally expect of a castle but a collection of palaces within the old city walls.Queues through security points not too bad at this time of year but would expect in summer would be horrendous.

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.
