Create an itinerary including Prague Castle
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.

  • Very bad attitude from the staff, especially the gate keepers. They are public servants and should be professional and not fooling around. Lack of English language of course…how does the ministry...

  • The size of the castle complex is pretty expansive, and it's situated high on a high, so if you aren't interested in visitiing the castle you're probably not in Prague long enough to. Or you don't...

  • Beautiful church inside the castle grounds. Need about 1.5hr to 3hrs depending on your speed. Ticket are bought at information booth. Nice place to wander around outside if you don't want to go inside. Lovely park ground and architecture. Worth visiting twice if your feet feeling okay.
  • The church inside the castle is really amazing. Just make sure you wear comfortable shoes and try to avoid the busy time. We went there around lunch time, a lot of tourist groups and the restaurant is a little bit full as well. It will be better to come later, so you can enjoy a nice sunset view while having a nice coffee on the rooftop.
