The walk up to the castle was a great reminder of how out of shape I was. It was beautiful, and a great view - you can see all of Prague! Definitely worth visiting.

Take the tram number 22 up the hill. The changing of the guards was a nice thing to see. You could spend all day here! For some places you must buy a ticket which we did and it was worth it. The views from there are amazing!

Many neat things to see here, but a little pricey to go inside! It's free to walk around outside, but inside the different cathedrals, palaces, and buildings is even more interesting.

The Castle was one of the main attractions to see. So much to do there, A lot of walking but it is a great place to visit.

St Vitus Cathedral had some lovely stained glass - one piece by Mucha - but you could have seen much of it for free without a ticket. The other parts of the castle had few open rooms with almost no artifacts. I recommend going to the castle and not buying and tickets as you can walk around it for free... More

This 9th century castle was once the resident of the King of Bohemia but currently the Presidents office location. Ranked the largest ancient castle in the world by Guinness book of world record's, it's 70,000 m². Despite its age, it still stands strong and has undergone multiple renovations.

Be warned, up a hill! However totally worth it, with stunning views and amazing history this is a must do in Prague! St Vitus' cathedral being the highlight! Buy the circuit A pass because that gives you everything you'd want to see & take your time! Also as for food and drink there's a very handy Starbucks outside 😉 A... More

We arrived at about 9.45 and there were minimal queues (no entry fee but thorough searches of bags on entry). Very interesting and we just wandered around the grounds rather than pay to see inside. I'd recommend doing this. Lots to see plus a cafe and shop if you have to spend money everywhere you go. By the time we... More

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.
