An ancient symbol of the Czech lands, the expansive Prague Castle is one of the most important cultural institutions in the Czech Republic. Once the heart of the Holy Roman Empire, Prague Castle is now home to the Czech president and crown jewels.
According to the Guinness Book of World Records, Prague Castle is the largest coherent castle complex in the world, with an area of almost 70,000 m². That 'coherent' title isn't bad for a castle that was built way back in the 800s. It's undergone various rebuilds, renovations, fires and was also the site of the Second Prague Defenestration - an act that led to the Bohemian Revolt.
All of that is great if you're into history, but if you're not: know that this castle looms over the Bohemian capital like a fairy tale illustration. As beautiful as it is from afar, once you're inside the complex there's a varied collection of museums, galleries, and cultural treasures. That's why it's one of the most popular places in the city. So whether into history, pretty things, royalty, or weapons and war, there's something here to satisfy everyone.
You'll meet your representative directly in front of the St. Vitus Cathedral to pick up your tickets. This is important - otherwise you can't use your ticket!
Then you'll proceed directly to Prague Castle Circuit B. This route covers the castle interiors, the Old Royal Palace, St. George's Basilica, the delightfully quaint Golden Lane, and the stunning stained glass windows of St. Vitus Cathedral.

The John Lennon Wall is just a 15-minute walk from the castle towards Velkopřevorské Náměstí (Grand Priory Square). It's been covered in Beatles and John Lennon-inspired graffiti since 1980. Bring a felt pen or spray can with you, and write down your theory about who the Walrus really is.
It was good
A most amazing experience to visit this. Made all the more simple by getting tickets beforehand.
Perfect experience, beautiful!!!
Booked tickets for the wrong day and they allowed us to change them free of charge.
Die Prager Burg ist eine tolle Anlage! Für das Goldene Gässchen, wenn viele Besucher sind, braucht man viel Geduld.
Die Ticket - Übergabe hat ganz wunderbar geklappt. Der Sicherheits-Check ging schnell, obwohl uns die lange Schlange etwas erschreckt hat.
Insgesamt ein Muss in Prag!
Bien le seul point negatif est que j,heure du RV estvun peu tardive 11h 30 ce serait mieux. De plus j'aurais pu m'en passer car il y avait peu de monde aux caisses la seule vraie queue est celle devant l'entree presque une heure !
Siamo arrivati leggermente in ritardo,ma grazie all'egficientissimo centro assistenza telefonica e all'operatore in loco (tornato appositamente indietro)siamo riusciti a visitare il castello.ottimo servizio
bonne découverte du chateau de Prague et de la cathédrale et la ruelle d'or, à notre rythme car nous n'étions pas guidées mais avec un audioguide,
The castle is wonderful and I recommend it!
Lovely gardens near the castle!
