Prague is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and is often overlooked by other big European cities.
Whether it be the dozens of medieval castles, the delicious cuisine or the vibrant nightlife, there is just something magical about this city.
I can assure you that you’ll never want to leave, once you walk along the cobblestone streets of Prague!
Here are 5 of the best things to do around the city:
1. Go to Prague Castle
Prague Castle is the largest and one of the oldest medieval castle in the world. The area around Prague castle is over 550 meters long. You must go inside the castle and check out the crazy designs and colorful stained-glass windows. It is free of charge and you can easily spend over an hour with your jaw-dropped to the floor in amazement.
2. Have a Picnic on Petrin Hill
This massive 1,000 foot hill lays along the Vltava river and is one of the greenest places in Prague. There are always people hanging out with their friends, drinking beers and having a picnic. The mini Eiffel Tower of Prague can be seen at the end of this hill towards Prague Castle. Don’t miss out on the amazing views from Petrin Hill!
3. Experience Bliss in Old Town Square
Despite being the biggest tourist area of Prague, Old Town square has virtually remained untouched since the 10th century. Around the square you will see these amazing buildings such as The Gothic Tyn Church, the Astronomical Clock tower (oldest clock tower in the world), Baroque St. Nicholas Church and much more. There are people riding horses around Old Town Square and many street vendors selling all sorts of delicious foods and goods.
4. Shop on Wenceslas Square
Wenceslas Square is the main shopping area and the center of business and cultural communities in Prague. Here you will find many bars, hotels, retail stores, offices, shops and delicious fast food vendors. Wenceslas Square has also been the traditional place for gatherings and large demonstrations as many historical events have taken place here, specifically during the Velvet Revolution in 1989.
5. Walk over Charles Bridge
Originally constructed in 1357, this is one of the oldest standing bridges in the world. Charles Bridge has over 30 baroque statues of religious figures spread over the 1,700 feet of pure cobblestone. As you are walking on the bridge, you will see street performers, vendors selling food and goods, and people drawing caricature faces. Get there for sunset!
I hope that you enjoy all that Prague has to offer!
