The Daliborka is part of the palace tour. It's a rather small room you go down to see some old torture devices. A little creepy to think about people doing this in the old days.

You only peek thru a gate and see one room. You enter nothing. We have Prague card so was free for us, but if you have to pay, do not pay.

This tower was a prison and a place for torture. Here you can see instruments and human cages. The place is a bit scary and has a real historical atmosphere, so you can get vivid feelings and emotions. You can get here from Golden Lane...More

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
streets, bridges connecting both river banks and green
gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses.
Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history.
