I have never been in a better human built place on earth -taking marvels as the piramids (human built?) out-. An astonishing medioeval fortified city rather than a mere castle. I literally transported to the medioevo. Words will never be fare to describe this place....More

The castle certainly was nice to walk through. However it was very busy and there was a line for the security check. Fortunately this didn't take very long and its a good thing they do a certain check. We weren't in the mood to visit...More

The view alone to find this castle is amazing already. Then this beautiful,complex architecture. As honest guide host said, as you approach it, look to the ground or close your eyes then when you are on the spot look up. Then wow!..

The castle itself is hugely impressive. The gothic features, stained glass and preservation that is obvious is astounding. The gardens are lovely and peaceful and you could easily spend the day here. The only problem was entering the castle grounds, it is very commercial. Far...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

The castle is a small village within a wall, you can pay to go into individual parts, sit and enjoy a meal with an incredible view or wonder around, so do not put a time limit on this, just enjoy. Part day, all day and walk... More
