Best things to do and see in Prague

Prague: Why go

People come from far and wide to revel in the splendour of Prague, one of Europe’s most beautiful cities. One of the joys of visiting this city is its size – small enough for all the sights, museums and churches to be within walking distance of each other. Whether visiting for a weekend or longer, use our guide below to make sure your trip is unforgettable.


Wander over the 600 year-old Charles Bridge by night, and reflect on the statues along the banks of the Vltava charting the city’s history. By day, you can hire a rowing boat on the river.

Catch a ride in an open-top 1930’s Praga motorcar from the Old Town Square and get the inside scoop from one of Prague's most knowledgeable guides.

Enjoy a classical concert in St. Nicholas or one of the many other elaborate Baroque churches – or go to a Jazz club for something more contemporary.

Visit Prague Castle, well worth it despite the crowds. Enjoy the amazing city vistas over a drink or lunch at the The Golden Well terrace restaurant which clings to the castle walls.

Glide up to the quiet of Petrin Hill by funicular (catch it at Ujezd). Gaze down on the "City of 100 Spires" and enjoy the walk back down to Hradcany and Strahov. Stop off for a beer at the Strahov Monastery (pictured) and a wander round its ancient library, which looks like something out of Hogwarts.
