Top ways to experience Prague Castle
The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A beautiful walk on a cold day with views to die for. The castle is something special. Average price to get in. Awful though how you have to pay for the toilet.

Felt very underwhelmed of what we payed for. The castle felt empty, not much going on. The history was not properly explained and vibe just wasn’t there.

Very bad attitude from the staff, especially the gate keepers. They are public servants and should be professional and not fooling around. Lack of English language of course…how does the ministry expect them me to guide and serve thousands of tourists daily with basic knowledge and basic behaviour.

The size of the castle complex is pretty expansive, and it's situated high on a high, so if you aren't interested in visitiing the castle you're probably not in Prague long enough to. Or you don't know what you're going to miss. Unless spectacular, and old architecture isn't something you want to see. Probably in the wrong continent. Must MUST visit St. Vitus, and Golden Lane. Golde Lane is all hidden upstairs!!! Shops and stores sure, but the hidden muesem of amazing is upstairs. must visit IMHO. I would pay again and go again! if you're on the castle side, you're probably on foot. You have a hike and it's worth it. Plenty to do or see on the way up and down! I love Prague!

This castle is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. It consists of a cathedral, 10th century church, stables, armory, and a lane of tiny abodes showcasing historical occupations such as apothecary, ale house, seamstress, and castle guard. Unfortunately the day we visited, the Crown Jewels were on display in the cathedral and as the lines were 5 hours long, we did not gain access to that.
But still worth a visit. The changing of the guard at midday was cool too.

We walked up to the castle which is a little steep obviously being on a high hill , take the tram if walking is a problem . It’s actually the spires of the cathedral inside the castle which gives it a very hogwarts appearance from a distance . The views back over towards the city are very impressive . There is security access to the grounds but that is kind of to be expected but it does create long queues especially at peak times . Entry can be free but you are limited then in which parts of the castle itself you can gain entry ( the golden lane houses are within the castle grounds and can only be accessed with a full castle entry ticket , you can’t make a seperate payment just for them ) . There is as you would expect an over priced cafe and souvenir shop . Head back to town for refreshments and souvenirs they will be cheaper and better . Well worth the walk but something you will only need to visit once .

According to the Guinness Book of World Records, Prague Castle is the largest ancient castle in the world. However, we only toured part of it. Much of the castle is government offices, including the office of the president of the Czech Republic.
We were lucky enough to catch the changing of the guard on our entry into the castle. It takes place hourly and we were lucky to arrive just in time to see it.
To enter the castle grounds one must pass through a security gate with metal detectors and have any bags searched (much like an airport).
Also, St. Vitus Cathedral, within the castle grounds, is a must-see!

Such a beautiful place. You fall in love being here. So much to look around and feel so good. We took the entrance via garden and paid EUR 5 but it was worth it. I would say you would need at least half a day to appreciate beauty of this palace.

After our long walk and climb up the never ending steps which were a nightmare at the time of our visit as it was snowing and minus 11 deg C" The site of the architecture within the walled area was well worth it and the church was something else, well worth the visit

We visited the Prague castle in August on our holiday. There were amazing views and the walk up was lovely too! We were a bit slow and took our time getting there so most bits were closed once we arrived but we managed to get up the tower with lots of steps and that was great.
