There is so much to see and do in Prague Castle that you will have to give it at least one afternoon. But then, it's perfectly worth every second. The Castle is actually a whole town of wonderful sights: the Royal Palace, galleries, a convent, St. Vitus Cathedral, St, George Basilica and many other sights.

You will actually find all architectural styles from the 9th century on. It's a bit like a huge museum in itself. You can participate in various guided tours that include different amounts of sights.

You can also buy a ticket allowing you to see everything. Great thing the ticket is valid for 2 days, so you won't have to hurry. Just a tip: make sure you wear a pair of comfortable shoes!

Varies according to the tour you take or ticket you buy.

Opening Hours:
For the Castle:
1 April - 31 October: 5AM to midnight
1 November - 31 March: 6AM to 23PM

The view over the Lesser Town and Vltava River is amazing from the Castle yard. Don't forget your camera.Reply
