The 10 Top Attractions in Prague

Despite its relatively small size, the Czech capital of Prague is jam-packed with magnificent sights, each endowed with a long and varied history. To make the most of your visit there, make sure to include these 10 attractions in your itinerary.

Vltava River

The Vltava River cuts across Prague's centre. Jump aboard one of the many tour boats and take in the wonderful sights on both sides of the river while sipping a delicious Czech beer.

Charles Bridge

600 years old, Charles Bridge is one of Prague's most iconic landmarks. Beautifully decorated with rows of 30 baroque-style statues, it's a perfect spot for a romantic stroll.

Old Town Square

The Old Town Square in Prague offers a charmingly eclectic mix of architectural styles spanning several centuries – undoubtedly one of Europe's most beautiful sights.

Prague Castle

The largest ancient castle in the world, as well as one of the most gorgeous, Prague Castle has been home to all the different Czech heads of state ever since the 9th century.

Prague National Theatre

The Prague National Theatre is a resplendent neo-Renaissance building on the banks of the Vltava River, magnificent both inside and out, is often singled out as the finest achievement of Czech architecture.

Jewish Quarter (Josefov)

Despite its turbulent history, the Jewish Quarter in Prague has maintained most of its historical buildings and is now the best preserved Jewish historical complex in Europe.

Wenceslas Square

Now a lively shopping and tourist area, Wenceslas Square at the center of Prague's New Town has been the site of many of the city's most important events throughout history.

Astronomical Clock

Dating back to 1410, this astronomical clock is the third-oldest in the world and the oldest still in operation. Don't miss its fantastic moving display on the hour, every hour.

Kampa Island

Located between Prague Castle and Charles Bridge, Kampa Island's romantic atmosphere will enchant you. From its banks you can enjoy the best views of Pragues's many monuments.

St. Vitus Cathedral

An example of Gothic architecture at its finest, the spectacular St. Vitus Cathedral is the largest church in the country as well as one of the most important.

Planning Your Prague Visit

Discover Czech Beer

True to its reputation, Czech beer is delicious. A newcomer might be confused by the beer's alcohol content, however. Don't worry, the numbers given to the beers don't indicate their alcohol percentage. They refer to the alcohol degree, which is a much more complicated factor. As a rule of thumb, 10 and 12 degrees, the most common, are equivalent to roughly 4% and 5% respectively. Some beers go all the way up to 19 degrees – that's 8% alcohol!

Try a Czech Hot Dog

Believe it or not, one of Prague's culinary highlights are its hot dogs. Infinitely superior to their American counterparts, these delicious sausages stuffed in French baguettes offer the best cheap lunch in town. Stalls are peppered throughout the city, just take your pick!

Prague: 2.5-Hour Classic City Bike Tour Reviewed by Brett, 08/14/2018

Really enjoyed this tour wish it was longer to hear more of the storie

It’s explained at the start of the tour that myths, ghost or legend stories may have been changed or added to or reimagined to become what they are today but it made this tour really interesting. An alternative approach to a walking tour with a twist I enjoyed it.

Guide was knowledgeable, transport was right on time

Very good tour. Worth the $$. Guide and driver were both very polite and knowledgeable.

Incredibly educative tour to Kutna Hora and the bone chapel

Our tour was very well organized and the instructions for the meeting point where very clear. Our guide, Ryan, was amazingly enthusiastic and his English was very good. He was very inspirering and well informed about the bone chapel and the St Barberachurch and also about Kutna Hora, the town, itself. On top of the price on Getyourguide, we also needed to pay for your food, which was not expensive and was very delicious (where you could choose typical Czech meal), but it was not mentioned on the getyourguide site. It would be better if they mentioned that on the site.

Absolutely perfect for a crash course of Prague.

Our guide was extremely friendly and informative. Even showed us a few extra things. Would definitely do again on my next visit as a refresher course.
