Top Tours & Activities 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!

What People Are Saying About Prague
An interesting place full of stories. Small and easy to get around. Having a guide helped immensely.
This tour was amazing with a wealth of information on the Jewish quarter. We were able to take a break when we needed. Questions were welcomed. Would highly recommend!!!
This was truly a trip we will always remember. The customer service was outstanding and went beyond expectations. The day before the trip I received a call to suggest we leave an hour and a half earlier than planned to avoid a crowded river. That was perfect for us. Thankful we did because, 1. We were truly beginners and 2. After we landed our boats we realized there were 300 boaters behind us. We absolutely loved our private time on the water and our guide Mathew was the best! We so much appreciated his time and love of being on the river.
If you want a fun way to see a lot of Prague in a short amount of time, this is a great tour. My teenage children and I did this tour so we could decide which attractions we wanted to see in Prague without to much walking. The electric bikes were so fun and the Segway's are such a fun pass time. I strongly recommend this tour for family's with older children and young couples.
It is a fantastic beer tasting tour, trying seven different beers and knowing a lot interesting facts about the history and methods of beer brewing. We enjoyed it truly.
