The beautiful city of Prague is a top destination for many people. This historic Czech capital features a host of free activities for any tourist, due to the wealth of monuments to see.
Top Places to Visit in Prague
No visit to Prague is complete without sipping a local beer at the Beer Garden on Letna Hill. The city panorama is laid out before you as you relax with a glass of locally brewed beer and it is a magical experience you will not forget.
Charles Bridge is another magical visit, you are sure to enjoy. The bridge is full of artists and street vendors vying to sell their goods, so you have to watch out for pickpockets at busy times, unfortunately. You can stroll between the Old Town of Prague towards the romantic Prague Castle and the bustle on the bridge and sounds of street musicians will all conspire to astound you with delight.
Expect it to be extremely crowded during the summer months, and definitely quieter but perhaps much nicer during the winter. Many think that visiting Prague in winter is a dumb idea, but I say otherwise. Sure, you’ll need more clothes, it won’t be as pleasant, but the massive crowd will cease to exist.
If you take a walk around the Old Town, you will find a wealth of ancient buildings and historical monuments. Follow this up with lunch or dinner at a restaurant in the Old Town Square and you can take time to view the Astronomical Clock in operation. The clock does mark the hour, but it is the range of astronomical detail that really amazes tourists as they try to identify each symbol. You can complete your trip to the Old Town with a tour of the old Jewish quarter and its fascinating cemetery.
You will find a variety of local restaurants serving tasty local dishes and if you have the opportunity, you can check out the best strudel in the world at Susta Strudl on Jesionova 29. Czech strudl is a renowned local dish and these takeaway strudls are over 12 inches in length, piping hot and covered in icing sugar. Another recommended restaurant is Havelska Koruna, which serves genuine local dishes, cooked to perfection. If you take time to leave the tourist trail, you will find hundreds of local restaurants and cafes serving excellent dishes at reasonable prices.
Payable Attractions in Prague
If you only have a short while in the fascination Czech capital you can hire a car for the day to take in your full tour, that way you won’t miss any attractions. If you do hire a local car, don’t forget to take out car hire excess insurance in the deal.
Some of the excellent and popular payable attractions in Prague include Prague City Zoo, which is situated a little way outside the city centre, and Prague Castle, which features such a riot of fantastic architectures and is well worth a visit.
Another popular modern attraction is MindMaze, where you and your team will be locked inside a room and given an hour to use your puzzle solving mindset and work out how to escape from the room. This popular attraction gets booked solid, so it is a good idea to make a reservation online rather than just turn up at the attraction.
Enjoy your stay in beautiful, historic Prague!
