Prague Castle, Prague
(4.5/5 based on 18,000+ 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.

  • For all Prague visitors a must. There is much to see, to learn and to explore. From up here, you have a great view over Prague.

  • 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.
