Prague is easily one of our favorite cities in Europe and every time we return we find more and more things to do in Prague. We’ve visited Prague in both summer & winter seasons and it’s safe to say there isn’t a bad time to visit Prague. Every time we return to Prague this is what we do, our favorite things to do in Prague.
1. VISIT THE PRAGUE CASTLE
Spend a few hours wandering around the gorgeous Prague Castle. According to Guinness World Records, the Prague Castle is the largest ancient castle in the world and if I might add one of the prettiest! The Prague Castle covers an area of 45 hectares. Try and be there for the changing of the guard’s ceremony which occurs daily at noon local time.
Address: 119 08 Prague 1, Czechia
2. TAKE A SELFIE AT THE JOHN LENNON WALL
Grab a camera and take a selfie at the John Lennon Wall. It’s not your normal boring ole wall, the John Lennon wall is filled with inspired graffiti and pieces of lyrics from Beatles’ songs. The wall is continuously changing so it’s one of the things to do in Prague on every visit because it looks slightly different every time.
Address: Velkopřevorské náměstí, 100 00 Praha 1, Czechia
3. WATCH THE ASTRONOMICAL CLOCK
Catch the world’s oldest operating astronomical clock every hour with 12 apostles passing thru the window right above the astronomical dial. Make sure to get there at least 5-10 minutes above to get a good spot for photos.
Address: Staroměstské nám. 1, 110 00 Staré Město, Czechia
4. STROLL ACROSS THE CHARLES BRIDGE
Walk across one of the most iconic bridges in the world. The Charles Bridge connects Prague Castle and Old Town Prague, skip the subway or taxi and walk across the bridge and take in the gorgeous views of Prague.
5. TAKE A PRAGUE RIVER CRUISE
Often called the “Prague Venice”, the waterways around the old city are a must see when visiting Prague. Hop aboard a boat and cruise under the Charles bridge and along the Prague castle. A day on the Vltava is one of the top things to do in Prague on a beautiful summer afternoon.
6. WALK AROUND WENCESLAS SQUARE
Wenceslas Square is in the heart of New Town Prague, a lively part of town with shops, bars, and restaurants. In the center of the square is a statue of King Wenceslas in front of the National Museum. The surrounding area is home to some of the city’s best beer pubs and breweries and has a much more local feel than Old Town Square.
Address: New Town, 110 00 Prague 1, Czechia
7. SEE ST. VITUS CATHEDRAL
One of the most photogenic churches we have visited is St. Vitus Cathedral, inside the walls of the Prague Castle. A visit to this stunning church is something you can’t miss while visiting Prague.
Address: III. nádvoří 48/2, 119 01 Praha 1, Czechia
8. CHECK OUT PRAGUE’S FAMOUS NIGHTLIFE
Prague has become well known for being a late night party spot. Throughout the city, you can find clubs and bars that go all night. There are so many places to go out in Prague that they even offer nightclub tours where you can visit hard to find places and see more of Prague’s nightlife.
