The castle itself is not as interesting as the walking to go there and to get out of there. You have to climb a lot of stairs and once you get there the castle is kind of disappointing. But the travel is interesting, you will...More

Visited the Prague Castle today and what a big place. Many, many tourists and everywhere you look there was people. The best part was walking in the gardens, though many people it was a bit quieter. I think the Castle is very much over rated....More

There was a visit by the Austrian President to the Czech President at the castle on the day we visited. Therefore a large military parade in their honour. Magnificent ceremony with lots of marching bands/soldiers/dignitaries etc. If you walk down the hill afterwards, my advice...More

Coming to Prague without seeing the castle is a pity. A true piece of history. Nice buildings, very well maintained and very clean. The highlight is of course the cathedral st. Vita. Some tips: you will find a little market where you can have some...More

I couldn't help but hear Ed Sheeran in my head as I repeatedly took pictures of Prague Castle in the distance. It seemed necessary to tour it as well! Once inside the castle grounds, you can choose whether to tour four or seven areas in...More

In terms of historical and aesthetic interest, St. Vitus Cathedral (particularly the old half of it) is the star here. It's worth reading up in advance or having something like the Rick Steves writeup with you, and really devoting some time to it. If you're...More

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

I bought tickets at the door. If you arrive early in the morning, or if you go to get tickets immediately as the changing of the guard is ending, there is little or no wait. The queue for tickets is short, sometimes the... More
