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!

What People Are Saying About Prague

Much better than you would expect for FREE

Tour was very good. Guide (carl, I think) provided good information in an organized and informational manner. He spoke very clear English, since this was an English tour. Timing was perfect with a short break in the middle. Overall, pretty fantastic when you don't have to pay anything put a nice tip to the tour guide.

Royal Prague Free Walking Tour Reviewed by Joseph, 08/15/2017

A perfect tour including all the top notch sites.

The guide was on time and very helpful throughout the tour. All five of us (2 adults and 3 teens) liked Pavel a lot. Good level of information. At lunch break, he took us to a great restaurant that was not expensive, but actually one of the best food we had during our 8 days in Prague. Excellent! The middle son (15 years) kept talking about the lunch for the rest of the trip.

Prague: Historic City Center Bus Tour Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer, 08/12/2017

This was a very interesting and informative tour.

When we met up with our tour group and tour guide at the Charles Bridge Tower, it was very overcast and eventually started to rain. There were very few in our group who were prepared, so our guide thought quickly and led us through the tight crowds on Charles Bridge to a more sheltered place under the bridge until the rain stopped. Once there she could continue to talk and explain to us what we were viewing and instruct us on where we would be going next. Besides the rain and getting completely wet in the beginning, we dried out enough to be comfortable and thoroughly enjoyed the rest of the tour learning about the history of Prague and viewing the historical sites. We booked this tour late in the evening the day before and were very pleased that they were prepared for us with entry tickets and tram fare. It was very organized; our guide spoke English very well and was very knowledgeable. I highly recommend this tour!

It was simply AMAZING! Thank you very much!!!

The service was amazing, the girls were smiling all the time, we even made jokes with them and i liked that. They were great :) The view was.... wow
