Prague: Top things to do and see
Prague is the capital of the Czech Republic and literally a tourist magnet. Over six million people a year decide to spend some time in the lovely city of Prague. As Prague is located in Eastern Europe, prices are not comparable to Western Europe and thus, Prague is a lot cheaper than for example Paris. Historical architecture as well as impressive relics of the past such as the castle are popular places to go. But where to go best? Our top things to do and see in Prague!
Stroll around in the Old Town
Prague is famous for its historic architecture and old town. Imagine having the opportunity to walk through an old town of which the buildings are from the 11th/12th century!
Especially enjoyable are the pedestrian zones. While no cars disturb the idyllic picture of a medieval style, grabbing a coffee or checking out different stores definitely is an experience!
Visit the National Museum
As the buildings are from the early medieval ages, you can imagine that Prague has a rich past, just like the whole Czech Republic in general.
Visiting the National Museum will be informative if you want to learn more about the sights and city you are in!
Cross Prague’s Charles Bridge
Charles Bridge is probably one of the most famous things to see and admire of Prague.
But as Charles Bridge is that famous, you may have to fight for crossing it as it is usually very crowded and many merchandisers try to sell their stuff…
Climb up Castle Hill
Prague’s castle is always crowded. Admittedly, it is very beautiful and throws you back in another century, but the yearly 6 million tourists are of the same opinion!
It’s probably best to visit the castle in the early morning hours or late in the evening to avoid the biggest crowds…
Go to Wallenstein Gardens
Currently, the Baroque palace is home of the Czech Senate.
Just taking a rest in the impressively designed and well-maintained gardens or strolling around may cause severe minutes of pure peace!
Spend time riverside
The Vltava is the big river flowing through the city of Prague. The beauty is incomparable as stunning views of the other side of Prague can be enjoyed!
Not to forget about the animals such as swans which are as beautiful to watch as to indulge in the flair of the historic city!
