"View of Prague Sunset, from Atop the Castle Wall" Views of The City Tip by thebeatsurrender

Views of The City, Prague: 45 reviews and 89 photos

The best view of Prague I found is from atop the Prague Castle wall. I got there just in time for sunset. There was a crowd, but off to the side, there is a section of the castle wall that you can climb.

Perched on top of something that some 12th century soldier probably hid behind while shooting arrows, I had an unobstructed view of the city below -- the pretty churches, the gorgeous red-orange roofs, the bridge being lit up for the night -- all as the reds and purples of the sky settled in for the night.

Watch your step though... there's a long drop down the hill on the other side of the wall, and the climb up the wall itself is just a series of rickety and crumbly concrete blocks stacked on top of each other.

Directions: Enter Prague Castle, head past St. Vitas Cathedral and head downhill on the main path
