Probably the most famous church in the heart of our country - just inside the castle of the president. Free of charge and impresive example of Czech history.

This Cathedral is enormous, it is inside the castle grounds. You enter through metal detectors and have your bags checked prior to entering the grounds, which are free. You can enter the front of the cathedral for free, but to go around the whole cathedral you require a ticket. There are different types of tickets available to see different parts... More

We got tram 22 which takes you to entrance at the top, which means you are walking on an even level and we continue taking in all the sites of the castle and walked down hill to the tram stop at the bottom. This forward planning made walking easy. We walked in to the area in front of the Cathedral... More

Palace area and St Vitas Cathedral tours are excellent, especially with a Palace Guide. Visit to the Golden Lanes interesting.

This attraction sort of sneaks up on you as you are viewing the castle. But the cathedral is dramatic and certainly worth your time.

This was definitely one of the most beautiful cathedral we’ve ever seen, both inside and out. Visiting the castle complex on a Sunday morning meant that we had to wait until after the services had happened before we could go in; and while it opens at midday, the queues were ridiculous then. However, we returned around 2.10 (having been to... More

If you are travelling to Prague this is one of the ''must see'' attraction in town. The architecture is amazing. As a tip: there is a ticket that you can buy that includes the cathedral, Golden Lane and some other museum, ticket is available 2 days, so you can enjoy it

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.
