The most important attraction in Prague is the huge medieval castle, which dominates the Old Town. Reputed to be the largest castle with its 570 meters long and 130 meters wide, its construction dates back to the 10th century.
Its opening hours are impressive: access to the castle is permitted every day from 5am to midnight in summer and 6am to 11pm in winter, and historical monuments open from 9am to 6pm. Castle gardens open at 10 in the morning and closing hours vary by season. The walks around the castle and the entrance to the cathedral are free, but you’ll have to pay to access the main monuments, which are worth seeing. For more information about this world heritage site see UNESCO’s official website.
Address: 11908 Prague.
The easiest way to get to the castle is to take tram No. 22 to the Pražský hrad station , then turn left. In five minutes you reach the castle. You can also get off the tram at the Pohořelec station and down the hill to the castle, allowing you to add a nice walk to your visit.
Two subway stations are close: Malostranská and Hradčanská.
