A lovely place to visit an uphill walk brings you to the entrance of the castle an all day long queue of people wanting to visit inside the castle allow plenty of time for this.Castle guards very polite just ask for permission to photograph them,lovely view of the city of Prague well worth the walk.

A very interesting place to look at and well worth buying tickets to have a look inside some of the building, you could spend hours here looking around, it can be very crowed in some of the areas.

We booked with a company who arranged the transport to the castle via tram as well as a guide. Since security has been increased there was a wait of 45-60 mins queuing outside before getting in, after bag checks. Although you could walk around by yourself I'd definitely recommend going on an organised tour. The guides are a fountain of... More

We visited the Prague Castle, Charles Bridge, St. Vitus Cathedral, Old Town Square, 50 minute boat trip with refreshments on board, Old Town Square and the Astronomical clock. It was a 6 hour tour and all the places are nice, beautiful and very historical. Most especially we enjoyed our tour guide by the name of Alex. He is very funny... More

Pleased we visited the castle as wasn't going to bother. Small queue through security at top of hill. All buildings were closed as were the gardens but interesting walk through castle grounds. Very surprised at size of castle which was like a small town. Although entrance was free ,it was a shame there were no guides who could help you... More

Don't let the name fool you, the Prague Castle has no castles at all. It is a collection of infrastructure and buildings that started when the settlers first gathered in Prague, with the most impressive of them all the st. Vitus cathedral. The site has many attractions, and the tickets are sold in groups or can be individually purchased. Most... More

The castle tickets are bought inside after security checks on the right side as you enter to see st vitus cathedral.we bought a "route B" ticket which gave us all the major entries we wanted to see.The "gold mile" inside for me was by far the most interesting as it has a vast display of medieval armour and weapons and...

You have options about what attractions you want to see within the castle grounds. We saw four attractions. The hours are different between winter and summer hours, but definitely get there early so you can spend some time dawdling between the attractions. It was a really great place to visit.

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.
