From the historic Old Town to the Jewish Museum, and Charles Bridge to Prague Zoo, here’s our pick of the best things to do in Prague. One of Europe’s most charming cities, holidays to Prague are a must; with so much packed into a relatively small city, there’s always a surprise around every corner.

Places to go

When it comes to things to do in Prague, there’s so much on offer that it can be a little overwhelming. Take a sightseeing tour that lets you take in the city’s major attractions; whether you prefer a Segway or bike tour, a walking tour, a river cruise or a riksha. Rikshas are a popular choice for getting off the beaten track as they can often get into cobbled streets and parks which are inaccessible by bus or car. Once you’re ready to explore on your own head to Prague’s Old Town; with its cobblestone streets and gothic buildings, you’d be forgiven for thinking you’d stepped back in time.

Attractions

Your stay in this beautiful city will always involve a bit of history and culture, and one of the most cultural things to do in Prague is head for the castle. This sprawling complex can easily take half a day to explore and is also home to several of the Czech National Gallery’s displays. Visit St Vitus Cathedral then take some time out to explore the traditional bars and restaurants of the Lesser Town surrounding the castle. A sunny stroll across the 14th century Charles Bridge, takes you from the Old Town to the New Town. Here you can head for the National Museum on Wenceslas Square, with its history and natural history exhibits. s

Places to visit

Prague is a very walkable city, so take the time to explore on foot and you’ll discover Prague attractions, like the Church of Our Lady before Týn, the Astronomical Clock and the 10th century Old Town Square. It’s also worth seeing if there are any classical concerts on at the Rudolfinum Concert Hall while you’re here. After dark, the Old Town is a hive of activity, with lively nightlife and late-opening bars and restaurants.

There’s plenty of western-style fast food on offer in Wenceslas Square and the Old Town Square, but if you’re after authentic Czech food, head for one of the restaurants offering a discounted weekday lunch menu. These generally serve authentic local cuisine, so expect schnitzel and potato salad, goulash and fried cheese to be on the menu.
