Inspirock Rating:
4.7/5 based on 4,600+ reviews on the web
Overlooking the city from its high point on the left bank of the Vltava River, Castle District contains one of Europe's largest medieval castle complexes. An independent borough until 1784, this neighborhood consists of historical palaces and medieval churches, which guard some of the country's greatest cultural and artistic treasures. Although not as old as Prague's famed old town, the district remains one of the most photographed urban areas in Europe, its centuries-old spires and towers appearing on countless postcards, posters, and tourist brochures. While at the southern end of the district's central square, point your camera toward the rooftops of the old town, visible on the other side of the river. Put Castle District on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Prague family vacation planner.

  • Forget the crowds. Stay on the perimeter of the castle. Walk the alleys and search for hidden gardens. 
  • The area of the castle is beautiful, but it's better have a guide that you will discover hidden places and the best panorama of the city. I have not bought tickets for the visit to the Castle because the best is out and it's free!
