Interesting story of St Vitus and how he got here. Give yourself time to enjoy without rushing. It is packed with people but very much worth it.

Absolutely beautiful architecture! The church closes at 1700 so be sure to get there early or you will only be able to see the outside of the church.

Paying the ticket to visit inside without the ticket for the tower is not worth it. On weekend and holidays long queue to enter.

All the buildings within the castle are exceedingly well presented. There weren't too many crowds, and since the area is large, visitors disperse easily. All the exterior areas have free access.

Building is great from outside and inside. I was on wrong day when was full of people and we have wait about one and half hour to go inside of church. Be prepared to wait and buy some bottle of water.

Your experience in Prague will never be complete if
you do not see it from the top. Hillsides, stretched
from the west to the north, provide spectacular views
of greenish copper cupolas, narrow cobblestone

gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses.
Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history.
