Visit Prague CastleDominated by the Gothic St. Vitus Cathedral, the ninth-century Prague Castle has been a seat of power for Czech emperors, kings, and presidents alike. Exploring every corner of these massive fortifications would take an entire trip, so read up in advance and take your pick. Our favourite sights include the tiny houses of Golden Lane, the Romanesque façade of St George’s Basilica, and the manicured landscapes of the South Gardens, not even to mention Alphonse Mucha’s striking stained-glass windows.
Walk The Charles BridgeFor a romantic stroll, there are few stretches better. Linking Prague Castle to the Old Town, the open-air gallery of Baroque statues lining the Charles Bridge has been inspiring poets and novelists alike for more than six centuries. Come here, and you’ll immediately understand why. Head down late at night or early in the morning – it’s surprisingly quiet.
Take a River Cruise
See the city from a different perspective by taking a river cruise on the Vltava. You can choose from a variety of options, including sightseeing cruises, and jazz cruises. Some of the popular sights that can be seen on a Vltava River cruise include the Charles Bridge and Prague Castle in Prague, as well as the picturesque countryside and charming towns and villages that line the riverbanks. The best time to take a Vltava River cruise is during the summer months, when the weather is warm and sunny and the river is at its most beautiful. However, river cruises are available year-round, and each season offers its own unique charms.
Explore the Old Town SquareFrom the Astronomical Clock to the Church of Our Lady before Týn, the 600-year-old Old Town Square is home to all manner of beautiful historic monuments and buildings. This is the Prague you’ve seen in pictures –the mechanical wonder of the 15th-century clock, the towering statue of Martyred religious leader Jan Hus and his followers, the uneven twin towers of the Gothic church. Free walking tours start at the northern edge of the square. Come at Christmas and Easter for the atmospheric holiday markets.
Shop on Parizska StreetParizska Street, also known as Paris Street, is a famous and luxurious shopping street in Prague.
