Things to do in  Prague

Welcome to Prague

The capital of the Czech Republic, the one-time communist capital of Prague has evolved, and now boasts a reputation as one of Europe’s most in-vogue destinations. Rivaling the beauty of Paris, Prague features a wealth of baroque architecture, Gothic spires, and a maze of quaint cobbled streets and red roofs set beneath a hilltop castle. And while mass tourism has marched in to explore, the capital still holds cultural appeal, including its traditionally brewed beer, renowned Franz Kafka Museum, and cuisine that goes beyond Czech dumplings and goulash. Wind your way through Prague’s cosmopolitan and historic sights to see its world-renowned castle and many bridges, hear its music, and experience the Danube River.

Top 10 attractions in Prague

#1
Prague Castle (Prazský Hrad)

Prague Castle (Prazský Hrad)

star-512,445
Sitting high on a hill overlooking the Charles Bridge and Vltava River, Prague Castle (Pražský Hrad) is a huge complex of museums, churches, palaces, and gardens dating from the ninth century. Nestled in the historic center of Prague—all of which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site—the largest castle complex in the world is an outstanding relic of Prague’s architectural history and a must for any visitor to the City of a Hundred Spires.More

Dancing House (Tancici Dum)

Dancing House (Tancici Dum)

star-4.52,119
In a city known for its baroque, Gothic, and Art Nouveau architecture, Prague’s postmodern Dancing House (Tancící Dum) stands out for displaying none of these architectural styles. The curvaceous, concrete, metal, and glass building was designed by the architectural duo of Czech-Croatian Vlado Milunić and Canadian-American Frank Gehry (of Guggenheim Bilbao fame) and completed in 1996.More
#3
Charles Bridge (Karluv Most)

Charles Bridge (Karluv Most)

star-514,271
Forming a grand walkway between Prague Old Town, and the Lesser Town and Castle District, the 15th-century Charles Bridge (Karluv Most) is one of the city’s most striking landmarks. The magnificent Gothic bridge features 16 stone arches, two watchtowers, and 30 blackened baroque statues depicting various saints.More
#4
Terezín Memorial (Památník Terezín)

Terezín Memorial (Památník Terezín)

star-4.51,217
A harrowing reminder of Europe’s dark history, the Terezin Concentration Camp once held prisoners awaiting transfer to Auschwitz and Treblinka. Today, the World War II site is preserved as the Terezín Memorial (Památník Terezín) and tells the horrifying truths of the Holocaust, as well as the stories of some of the 150,000 prisoners, including those who lost their lives.More
#5
Powder Tower (Prasná Brána)

Powder Tower (Prasná Brána)

star-4.53,201
The Powder Tower (Prasná Brána) is one of Prague’s last remaining city gates. It once formed part of the defensive walls that surrounded the city and was one of 13 gates that allowed people to pass in and out of the center. Visit to climb to the top of the tower and enjoy views over the surrounding area.More
#6
Vltava River

Vltava River

star-4.52,579
The Czech Republic’s longest river, the Vltava begins in southern Bohemia before meandering 270 miles (430 kilometers) northward toward Prague. The river has shaped the Czech capital over millennia, splitting Malá Strana (Lower Town) in the west from Staré Mĕsto (Old Town) and the modern city to the east.More
#7
Prague Astronomical Clock (Prague Orloj)

Prague Astronomical Clock (Prague Orloj)

star-54,500
One of Prague’s most popular tourist attractions, the Astronomical Clock (Prazský Orloj) was built in the 15th century and is a mechanical marvel. Found on the south side of Prague’s imposing town hall in Old Town Square (Staromestske namestí), visitors line up in their hundreds to see the display as the clock strikes the hour.More
#8
Prague Old Town Square (Staromestské Námestí)

Prague Old Town Square (Staromestské Námestí)

star-59,273
Prague’s Old Town Square (Staroměstské náměstí) is the historic heart and navigational center of the city’s UNESCO-listed Old Town. A feast of architectural wonders, the medieval square is ringed with grandiose Romanesque, baroque, and Gothic style buildings, including some of Prague’s most photographed monuments.More
#9
John Lennon Wall

John Lennon Wall

star-53,734
Starting life as a tribute to musical icon and peace activist John Lennon after his untimely death in 1980, Prague’s John Lennon Wall quickly became a symbol of peace and free speech for young Czechs angry and disillusioned with the country’s communist regime—much western pop music was banned under the regime, and some Czech musicians were even imprisoned for playing it.More
#10
Kutná Hora

Kutná Hora

star-51,468
Just an hour from Prague, Kutná Hora is a medieval village with a fascinating history. Most travelers head there to see the Sedlec Ossuary, a Roman Catholic chapel decorated with bones that’s known, fittingly, as the Bone Church; however, Kutná Hora’s UNESCO-listed Old Town is also worth a look.More
