After visiting Prague Castle we decided to take the short walk to the Loreto. Although I wouldn't say this is a must do, it was very pleasant to walk around and it was worth it just to see inside the baroque style church.

Well worth visiting Loreta while in Prague. One of the most beautiful chapels in Europe, an unbelievable treasury, and so much history. You’ll enjoy it so much more than following the crowds around Prague Castle complex.

The ideal place to go to get away from the crowds in Prague. And there is plenty to see (and hear): The Santa Casa (Holy House) which is a replica of the house of the Virgin Mary - this is the most important in Bohemia;...More

When visiting the Castle take an hour or so to admire this beautiful complex. Try to visit the place when the bells strike for the complete hour and enjoy the carillion (you can watch it live from the 2nd floor via live cams). The highlight...More

This is a fascinating place to visit, showing a broad spectrum of the time. Be aware that interior photography requires an additional ticket- it was worth it. Many other reviews discuss the courtyard with saints (the biography of each is fascinating), the Black Virgin, and...More

This was a great example of sympathetic restoration, an interesting piece of Czech history that was well presented. The added bonus of some beautiful chiming church bells and historical artifacts.

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.
