Looming above the left bank of the Vltava River, Prague Castle claims status as the largest castle complex in the world. Dating back to the ninth century, the imposing structure occupies nearly 70,000 sq m (753,000 sq ft), its grounds so big they include four churches and four palaces, as well as five different gardens. Once the seat of power for kings of Bohemia and Holy Roman emperors, the castle now serves as the official residence of the country's president. The structure has undergone four major reconstructions since the 12th century, and its blend of architectural styles earned it a spot on the World Heritage List.

Mukava kun kaikkea pääsee katsomaan kunnolla läheltä. Nähtävää on paljon, ja ilman opastustakin on elämys. Opastuksella vakuuttava linna ja sen salien elämä heräävät eloon.

With guidance, the convincing castle and the life of its halls come alive. There are small activities for children like archery, although the corridor of the wall is really cramped.
Came here early one day with my partner. We saw that castle a day before we went in and the line to get through security is... insane. Like it's literally not worth it. So we decided to arrive around 8am the next day so we we didn't need to fight the crowds. Best decision ever. There was hardly anyone there and we got to really enjoy and appreciate the area. We didn't buy any tickets to go inside because they were too expensive for us. But we still got to enjoy and view the beautiful buildings. The only downside is the lack of signage. We didn't know for the longest time where we were walking. I can understand why they don't want to put ugly signs around but it can be difficult to navigate at first. I would highly recommend only visiting before 9am or after 7pm.
Lovely castle. A must see. I would recommend the tour about how it was built. In the tour they show progress models; like first the walls, then the church. My favorite part was with the soldier burial. Dude must have been a real noble and we'll respected warrior
