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

The castle and surrounding archeological sights are fantastic !!! Very well kept and maintained and the guided tour was excellent ! St.Vitus cathedral is a truly grand and amazing sight!! Only one place the Czechs have really dropped the ball on this place. You have 700+ year old churches with electronic turnstile gates in them???? Why??? But then you get... More

A most see in Prague. Amazing medival senary and views. Just look out for the overpriced shoops for tourists on the way up. The only awful thing is the newlly added StarBucks next to the castle taking a loot of the scenary away. But since it seems like they will be in eve corner of the world soon I guess... More

This for sure is the main attraction in Prague, very easy to go to this location, you can get into the Hop on Hop off Tour or just take Tram from the National theater. Due to some event happening in Berlin and Paris so they have a security check at the entrance, this bit make a very long queue to... More

Worth the wonderful walk to the castle. You can walk round without paying and take it all in, but we bought the full tour so we could go into the exhibitions which are worth it. All of it is mesmerising. It's nice to see Golden Lane too which has original houses and information on the residents of these places. The... 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.
