Top 6 Things to do in Prague, Czech Republic

December 25, 2017 Esmeralda Fenner

The bohemian allure and fairytale features of Prague make it a perfect destination for beach-weary vacationers who want to immerse themselves in culture. You could devote an entire day to exploring Prazsky hrad (Prague Castle), then refueling over a hearty dinner at a classic Czech tavern. Spend some time wandering the Old Town Square before heading over to gape at The Old Town Hall and Astronomical Clock. Prague’s best bars are found in cellars, where historic pubs set the scene for a night of traditional tippling.

Old Town Square

The most significant square of historical Prague, it was founded in the 12th century and has been witness to many historical events. In addition to the Old Town Hall and the Church of Our Lady before Týn, the square is dominated by the Baroque Church of St Nicholas, the Rococo Kinský Palace, the Gothic House at the Stone Bell and the monument to Jan Hus. In the pavement of the square are memorial stones marking the execution of 27 Czech lords in 1621, and the Prague meridian.

Spent the afternoon in the square going to a couple of places including the churches at each end. Beautiful churches and worth a look even if you are not religious. People were getting ready for the Easter celebrations and there were people from lots of other countries visiting at the time we were there. Everyone was friendly even though the square was very busy at the time. Lots of little winding streets off the square equally worth visiting. Plenty of places to eat though they were a bit dear and I don't like the 'suggested tip value'. If you deserve it you will get a tip is my philosophy.

St. Vitus Cathedral

Situated at the Prague Castle, St. Vitus Cathedral is the most important and largest church in Prague. The Cathedral is the burial place of the former Czech kings and a home of the Czech Crown Jewels.

Reviewed By GRAHAM C - Sevenoaks, United Kingdom

It is impossible to miss this impressive Gothic building when visiting Prague. Make it part of your tour around the Castle taking the B route which will permit you full entrance to this Cathedral and see the amazing tomb inside. Best way to get there is to take the Tram 22 via Mala Strana Square or Malostranska Metro station. Be sure to walk around the Cathedral to view the Golden Gate. Usually there is a market outside selling fabulous take away food and drink.

Charles Bridge

Yes, Charles Bridge is a perfectly preserved bit of Prague history. It is a wonderful walk from the city center and the a great way to spend a good part of the day strolling through the picturesque city.
So, grab some comfortable shoes, dress for the weather, run through the souvenir shop gauntlet, and enjoy this beautiful artifact.

Prague Castle

The largest castle in Europe contains more than seven hundred rooms.

Reviewed By Samuelpas - Bekasi, Indonesia

I visited this place in early March. The queue was very long when I enter. There was security check before enter. The complex was very huge. The castle was beautiful from outside. But there was too many tourist that time so I couldn’t enjoy the visit and it was hard to take a good picture.

Old Town Hall with Astronomical Clock

The Old Town Hall is one of the most significant monuments in the Czech Republic. It was established in 1338 as the administrative seat for Prague's Old Town. Now, it is mainly used for the ceremonial purposes of the capital city, Prague. The historical town hall consists of a set of five medieval houses, the corner of which is adorned with a historical astronomical clock, a gothic oriel window and a massive rectangular tower. The lookout gallery on the town hall tower offers the most beautiful view of Prague. A tour of the historical halls in the Old Town Hall is a unique experience. The expensively decorated rooms date from various periods and are examples of the remarkable development of the town hall complex. The guided tours in various languages are organised in hourly intervals.

We had heard so much about this amazing clock so arrived early to see the dance of the vices! What do you know it was covered in canvas needing repair. We got to see the print of the clock and our guide described the mechanism and advised us to come back in August!

NaFilM: National film museum

Open only until the 31st of March, then is NaFilM moving to a new location. We'll update the information as soon as we manage to relocate. A hidden gem in Prague for all film lovers - the current exhibition of the NaFilM project is a glimpse of what a Czech film museum could look like. It's a beautiful, interesting and playful exhibition for all generations that explores the history of Czech film.

I went to Nafilm with my class from uni and already know I will come back on my own or with my friends again! It is inspiring, thought-provoking and remarkable. You have a precious opportunity to see some of the best first Czech motion movies which you would probably never see elsewhere. Czech cinematography is one of the fields that has a lot to offer. For instance, a movie about plants movement was just spectacular...
Apart from all the screening, they have educational but very interactive rooms that won't let you be bored for sec.
Absolutely visit this gorgeous museum:)
