This attraction alone will single-handedly convince one that the eastern half of Europe also has an impressive history and a civilization to be respected.

Many people and can get crowded due to metal search at entrance. Accordingly to locals it's because of the Czech presy lives there. Otherwise a comum place, there's much better sights to see in Prague

We spent a lovely afternoon strolling the beautiful grounds and taking in views of the city. It's not very well signed insofar as the various venues but eventually you get around to every thing. The shops along Golden Lane are free entry and the one with the torture tools gets a bit claustrophobic in narrow hallways. The full price ticket(half... More

Don't be intimidated by the long lines a security because they move quickly. The castle is incredible and highly recommend the headset as an aid for the tour. Plan on spending 3-4 hours there. Bring your camera because the views of Prague incredible. If you walk down the hill back towards Prague, stop at the ginger bread store on the... More

Beautiful views of Prague. Outside and inside of St Vitus chapel gorgeous. The rest a bit standard. Soooooo many tour groups. Again go early to avoid the crowds and groups.

Full of history, every building has something to tell, but quite crowded. The palace (specially the second floor) is unmissable, unique painted ceiling. The worse thing, paying to enter the golden street....

Castle is absolutely amazing in size and quality condition. Number of really good exhibits. Fantastic views. Ranks with best in Europe. Good cafes spread around grounds, so can make very leisurely visit. Avoid 10-2 because of tour groups. Easy to do self guide or great with guided visit.

Visited the castle on a Sandemans New Europe tour. Our guide Pavel was great, informative and humourous.It's an extensive and busy site and he skilfully maneuvered us around all the areas we could visit.Had originally planned to find our way around ourselves, much better to do a tour with a local.Pavel was better than any guidebook!

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.
