  1. Architecture

With a city center largely spared by the architectural destruction of World War II that devastated neighboring capitals, Prague is one of the most preserved cities in all of Europe, making it nearly impossible to even begin to list every landmark packed into this rich capital. Prague, known as "The Golden City of 100 Spires," boasts an unparallelled architectural tapestry shaped by centuries of diverse cultural, social and economic development. The city is a textbook of styles throughout the centuries; an architectural back catalogue of Gothic, Renaissance, baroque and Art Nouveau buildings filled with so much history.

  1. Castles, Churches and Towers

Prague is overflowing with castles, churches and towers (oh my!) featuring intricate details, arches, vaults and ornate decorations you will have to see to believe, including:

  • Old Town Square, the heart of the city, captivates visitors with Romanesque chapels, Gothic cathedrals and Baroque palaces such as the Church of Our Lady before Týn, a stunning Gothic church.
  • Prague Castle, a UNESCO World Heritage site towering above the River Vltava, welcomes tourists to explore a captivating mix of Gothic, baroque and Renaissance architecture.
  • The Castle district also includes the magnificent St. Vitus Cathedral, featuring the tomb of St. Wenceslas, crown jewels, gargoyles and stunning stained-glass windows.
  • The Church of Saint Nicholas has been described as the greatest example of Prague Baroque.
  • The astronomical clock adds a touch of theatricality to the cityscape. Every hour, the clock puts on a show: a skeleton rings his bell, twelve apostles walk by, a rooster crows and the clock chimes.
  1. Historic Sites

Prague's rich history has resulted in a laundry list of historic monuments. Wander along the picturesque Vltava River and pass over thirty bridges, including the medieval Charles Bridge. Delve into the intriguing mix of old and modern architecture in the Jewish Quarter, where the Old Jewish Cemetery stands as a poignant reminder of the area's history. Extend your historical exploration to include the National Memorial to the Heroes of the Heydrich Terror, commemorating a pivotal moment in Prague's wartime past. Continue your journey to Golden Lane, an assortment of small, brightly painted houses that once hosted historical figures like Franz Kafka. Each site contributes to the layered history of Prague: Weaving together tales of resilience and the enduring spirit of the city.

  1. Parks

Prague houses over two hundred historic gardens that hold a special place as the city's timeless treasures. Originating in the Middle Ages, and ranging from monastic gardens in the early days to Renaissance-era private gardens near palaces, each period brought its unique style to the city’s garden design.

Explore must-visit green spaces like Petrín Hill, with attractions such as the Rose Garden, Nebozízek Garden, Mirror Maze and the Seminary Garden with 2,000 fruit trees. Petrín Hill, dating back to the 12th century, served many purposes over the centuries, including as an execution site and vineyards. Climb Letná Park for breathtaking views and discover a kinetic sculpture that stands on top of a former Stalin monument base.

  1. Beer

Enjoy a glass or two or seven of world-class Czech beer in Prague's endless pubs and beer halls. Zlý časy in Nusle is a top pick for many, a tri-level pub offering an exceptional selection of beer. Explore classic pubs, trendy beer bars, and the Lokál chain for great Pilsner and traditional Czech cuisine. Classic pubs like U Jelínků and U Pinkasů, with over a century of tradition, showcase timeless ambiance. Don't miss small breweries like Pivovarský dům, Břevnovský klášterní pivovar sv. Vojtěcha and Klášterní pivovar Strahov, contributing to Prague's vibrant beer culture. Cheers to your journey in the Czech Republic!

  1. Food

Prague's culinary scene is highlighted by popular eats like Trdelnik, a sweet spiral pastry coated in cinnamon sugar, and classic Roast Duck served with cabbage and dumplings. Sausages are a local favorite; as is Goulash, a hearty meat stew; and Schnitzel, a crispy breaded meat cutlet. These dishes capture the essence of the Czech Republic, a city where traditional Czech cuisine meets casual street food.

  1. Nightlife

  1. Explore like a local

Looking to escape the bustling crowds surrounding Prague's hotspots? Discover Prague like a local by exploring these less-frequented gems of the city:

Kampa Island, often overlooked (quite literally, as the Charles Bridge passes right over it), offers a serene haven. Take some time to wander through this tranquil area, away from the big crowds of Prague yet still immersed in the city's charm. Enjoy a meal or drink on the canal, stop by the old-school watermills, and pay a visit to the water spirit, known as the “vodník” in Slavic folklore.

Head over to Střelecký Island on the Vltava River for amazing views of the city, lots of foliage and to catch a glimpse of the nutria (similar to beavers) that love to swim along the banks of the island.

On a sunny day, you can explore the city from a different perspective by renting a pedal boat. Pro tip: take a few beers with you on the water to make it even more fun.
