Prague Castle, Prague

Must see · Castle · Tourist Spot
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.

  • Absolutely amazing castle ! The architecture is very beautiful. Had a wonderful time over here. The view too from the castle of the Prague city is mesmerizing. Had an amazing time over here ! I wish to visit this place again , just can't get over it, it's truly wonderful. It's very huge as well. One of the must recommended places to visit in the city of Prague.
  • Prague is castle is huge. At the entrance you will find the security who are well dressed and still. The are the attraction for many. People click pictures with them too. The inside of castle is very beautiful. The garden has panoramic views. It's a must visit place.
  • Most definitely one of my favourite place I visited whilst in Prague and worth a visit. We went all the way to the top and the views were stunning. It is also really nice to just walk around. However, I do think they need more seating and restaurant areas at the top as it’s a long walk up a lot of steps and there is hardly anywhere to rest especially if you have children.
  • Beautiful castle, lots of culture and history there... you really feel like you are in that medieval era. It has Christmas markets inside around the third week of December which serve tasty food and wine and the vibe is happy and fun.
  • Amazing trip to this beautiful place. Take walking tour and enjoy every bit of history. Walking through the Charles bridge, blend yourself to the architecture, we really had an amazing experience. Go early morning to avoid the crowd, take walking tour to know Prague history better.
