Prague is an amazing capital city of the Czech Republic. I visited Prague several times and still want to visit it again. It always showed me different sides during my visits. So I never felt disappointed on a trip here. In Prague there are a lot of things to do, tasty cuisine and friendly vibes. Collected here the more significant and beautiful locations in Prague you must visit:

Prague is my number one destination for the New Year Eve celebration. Read my post about it and 4 more amazing cities that are also great for winter holidays.

Wander Through the Old Town Square

Start your Prague adventure at the heart of the city, Old Town Square. This bustling hub is surrounded by magnificent buildings like the Gothic Church of Our Lady before Týn and the Baroque St. Nicholas Church. Don’t miss the Astronomical Clock, a medieval marvel that puts on an hourly show with its procession of Apostles and other figures. Enjoy the lively atmosphere, street performers, and vibrant cafes that make this square a perfect introduction to Prague.

Tickets to Old Town Hall & Astronomical Clock you can find here.

Cross the Iconic Charles Bridge

Connecting Old Town with the Lesser Town (Mala Strana), Charles Bridge is one of Prague’s most iconic landmarks. This 14th-century bridge is adorned with 30 baroque statues, each with its own unique history. Walk across early in the morning to avoid crowds and capture the stunning views of the Vltava River and Prague Castle. Street artists and musicians often add to the bridge’s charming ambiance.

Explore Prague Castle

A visit to Prague wouldn’t be complete without exploring Prague Castle, the largest ancient castle complex in the world. Wander through its courtyards, visit the magnificent St. Vitus Cathedral, the Old Royal Palace, and the picturesque Golden Lane. The castle grounds offer panoramic views of the city, making it a perfect spot for photography enthusiasts. Plan to spend several hours here to fully appreciate its historical and architectural splendor.

Plan your visit in advance with audio guide and skip the line ticket.

Discover Mala Strana

Mala Strana, or the Lesser Town, is a fairy-tale district that feels like stepping back in time. With its narrow, winding streets and baroque buildings, it’s a joy to explore. Visit the Wallenstein Garden, with its beautiful terraced layout and peacocks roaming freely. Don’t miss the Lennon Wall, a colorful tribute to John Lennon and global peace, which has become a symbol of freedom and expression.

Relax on Kampa Island

Kampa Island, located next to the Charles Bridge, is an oasis of calmness in the bustling city. This charming island is perfect for a leisurely stroll along the riverside or a relaxing picnic. Visit the Kampa Museum, which features modern art, and enjoy the picturesque views of the Vltava River and Lesser Town. The island’s park and quiet streets provide a peaceful retreat from the busy city.

Dip yourself in history and culture as you explore Malastrana and the Kampa Island, two hidden gems.

Explore Vysehrad

For a unique perspective of Prague, head to Vysehrad, a historic fort perched on a hill overlooking the Vltava River. This ancient fortress offers a serene escape with its lush gardens, impressive Gothic ruins, and panoramic views of the city. Visit the Basilica of St. Peter and St. Paul and the Vysehrad Cemetery, where many notable Czech figures are buried. It’s a perfect spot for a peaceful afternoon exploring history and nature.

Go on Hidden Prague Bike Tour! You will enjoy Mala Strana, learn about World War 2, ride on the river banks and see the romantic hidden castle of Vysehrad.

Enjoy Czech Cuisine

No trip to Prague is complete without indulging in traditional Czech cuisine. Try hearty dishes like goulash, svíčková (marinated beef with creamy sauce), and trdelník (a sweet, cylindrical pastry). Pair your meal with a pint of world-famous Czech beer at a local pub. For a unique experience, dine at one of the many restaurants offering modern twists on traditional dishes.
