The trip to the Prazsky Hrad was very nice, the place itself was very busy, during our visit the place was overcrowded while there was a funeral.

The Church is huge, and Gothic, with stunning stain-glass windows and a very interesting door-knob! We came to the castle from the other side, walking across Charles Bridge and up the cobblestone streets. It's a lovely area, a mix of residential, coffee shops and small boutiques tucked away. We wandered through the Palace Gardens, lush and green and cool with... More

Perhaps not exciting, but interesting nonetheless. One has the chance to walk through churches, state buildings, etc. -- the number varying according to the price of ticket purchased. We did the least expensive ticket and did not feel deprived. Take the tram up and walk down to make the visit more enjoyable and physically less demanding.

we walked past the castle it does not look like what we thought would be a castle. there are loads of palaces that all look similar and it is only when you have walked away from the castle which is guarded [there's the clue] you can see the attached cathedral. a bit weird as both of us failed to see...

We took the hop on bus up to the castle and were dropped off outside the front gates. A short walk and security check brings you to the gates where you can watch the changing of the castle guard. There is so much to see and do within the castle grounds that you really need to put aside a full... More

I visited there today and having seen many castles this was average. Nothing wrong with it but no real Wow factor. It must become extremely crowded in summer given this was March and at times we could barely move. Go early as the security checks really slow down the entry process and create VERY long lines.

The castle is a spectacular place. The gothic church inside the castle is beautiful. We were fortunate to have a business dinner in this fabulous location and it wAs an evening we won't forget.

Up from the hill where you find the castle and the cathedral you have a wonderful view other the city of Prague! The castle is beautiful and very romantic, there are many nice places to just stay standing for a minute and enjoy the ambiance!

This complex of buildings is a must see while in Prague. You can wander around the complex free of charge but it's worth buying a ticket to see the impressive interiors of some of the buildings such as the cathedral. Great views across Prague. Because of security checks you will need to queue to get in but the line moves... 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.
