Hradčanská (Czech pronunciation: [ˈɦrat.tʃanskaː]) is a Prague Metro station on Line A, between Dejvická and Malostranská stations. It is named after Hradčany, the district where Prague Castle is located (hrad means "castle" in Czech). However, the Castle itself is quite far from the station. This station originally had only one exit toward Milady Horákové street. It now has multiple exits on this street, on each site of the tram tracks. There is now also an exit directly onto Dejvická sreet.

The station was opened on 12 August 1978 as part of the inaugural section of Line A, between Leninova and Náměstí Míru.[1]
