The Basics

Comprised of dozens of buildings, Prague Castle can feel like a small town. To allow for ample time to explore, tickets are valid for two days: the day of purchase and the following day. Nearly all city tours include a stop at Prague Castle, and a variety of tickets are available depending on how much of the complex you want to see. Explore the castle on your own with a skip-the-line ticket, or book a guided walking tour for a more in-depth experience. To take in even more of Prague’s highlights, combine a visit to Prague Castle with a cruise on the Vltava River or a walking tour of Old Town.

Detailed Tour of the Castle and Surrounding Area
Wonderful, detailed tour of the castle grounds. The tour begins at the Charles bridge so we had a nice walking tour of the bridge and area near the castle before getting to the castle. Our tour guide, Martin was very knowledgable and passionate on the topic.

Full-Day Prague Tour with Vltava River Cruise, Prague Castle and Lunch
The tour was amazing. I was the only person so I kind of got a private tour. The boat ride was nice but honestly there is so much to see in Prague, I would have rather spent that hour seeing more of the city.

Skip the Line: Prague Castle Ticket and Introductory Overview
We came earlier than we had booked our tickets, but the service was great. We could only get cheaper tickets than we had booked, but we were more than compensated for that inconvenience although it was our fault that we arrived earlier. Thank you.

Prague Castle and Castle District Walking Tour
Ian was a very cool person and a very friendly guide. We had a really nice and informative tour, we learned so much in this 3 hours! We would never get to know this much about the castle, if we would have gone on our own ! Ian was very nice and always asked if we would have some questions or if need something. He knew a lot and always added some funny information! We would do it again.

Skip-the-Line Prague Castle Ticket and Minibus Transfer
We met up with the driver and guide behind the Jan Hus statue. The van was clean and comfortable. The guide shared a wealth of knowledge. And also very pleasant. Enjoyed her 45-50 minute tour. Plenty for us old folks lol. It was a quick and easy walk to the castle grounds from where the van dropped us off. Would highly recommend to anyone who needs to avoid too many steps uphill.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Entrance to the castle grounds is free and tickets to individual buildings are sold at several spots around the grounds.

  • Don’t miss the ceremonial Changing of the Guard, which takes place daily at noon.

Prague Castle Highlights

Prague Castle is rich with architectural and historical marvels, including the neo-Gothic St. Vitus Cathedral, which may be the most recognizable part of the complex. Inside, don’t miss St. Wenceslaus Chapel and its magnificent decorations. The treasury is one of the largest in Europe and includes a relic of St. Vitus’ arm, while St. George’s Basilica, with its austere interior, provides an interesting contrast to the elaborate cathedral. The small homes along Golden Lane originally belonged to servants, goldsmiths, and marksmen; look for house 22, where writer Franz Kafka once lived. The Old Royal Palace is now home to an interactive exhibition providing an overview of the city’s history, the Story of Prague Castle.
