Prague Castle, Prague

(4.5/5 based on 20,000+ reviews on the web)
Looming above the left bank of the Vltava River, Prague Castle claims status as the largest castle complex in the world. Dating back to the ninth century, the imposing structure occupies nearly 70,000 sq m (753,000 sq ft), its grounds so big they include four churches and four palaces, as well as five different gardens. Once the seat of power for kings of Bohemia and Holy Roman emperors, the castle now serves as the official residence of the country's president. The structure has undergone four major reconstructions since the 12th century, and its blend of architectural styles earned it a spot on the World Heritage List.

  •  So, in fact, that the castle in the Loire region of France was still imagine a castle. Now, I visit, though not yet seen the castle was however Castle, Castle said. A little surprised. And disappointing. I don't know where the Castle. Building State-of-the-ordinary, so much "Castle! "It may be better, but do not expect to.

  • The castle is an interesting place to spend a morning or afternoon. We stayed across the river but were able to walk there in about a half hour. A couple of museums but we didn't go In as you needed t...  more »
  • To climb. Strength and breath. But it's worth it. Pay attention to the entry. The castle is a military area, so don't even think about taking some things. Has reviewed at the entrance, right? The entry itself is free, but to visit all buildings need to buy ticket. Buy just the combo that you think will give time to visit. Since we don't accept permanent residents, you'll probably lose money if you buy a full combo. The best photos are taken from the wall. You don't want to lose patience with the Orientals. They don't care about anyone except themselves.

  • At the top of a fairly steep hill, but definitely worth the effort. We initially attempted to visit on a Sunday afternoon... the queue for security reached all the way across the square and wasn't really moving. A second attempt mid-morning of the next day was much better, straight through security (airport style scanner) and off to get tickets. We opted for circuit B tickets which seemed to be the best balance of price and what you get to see. St Vitus cathedral in particular is really impressive. Overall, definitely avoid weekends (November seems bad enough, but dread to think what summer would be like) and remember to take your camera - the views out over the city are really something.
  • Very beautiful place within beautiful and peaceful surroundings. A tad on the touristy side, so best to go on less obvious touristy times to avoid being stuck in big groups. Also, there was a lot of security at the exits and entrances of the area. I understand why but it was just a bit annoying, especially after passing through there a few times.
  • One of the main tourist attractions in Prague, and quite rightly so. It is a truly beautiful place! Put on your walking shoes if you want to reach it, you'll have a bit of a climb ahead of you, but it is totally worth it. Try to go there early in the morning, to avoid the masses. Also, security at the gates is quite strict, so beware.
  • Nadherne prostranstvi, akorat nemuzete vstoulit hlavnim vchodem. Tim muzete jen vyjit ven. Prp vstup slouzi dva bocni vchody, ktere jsou kontrolovany policisty a hradni strazi. Ta vas zkontroluje a prohlede. Pak muzete projit dal.
