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

Worth the money and a great way to see the city.

We opted for the Segway and escooter tour on the day and managed to see lots of the city. Our guide was brilliant and really flexible. We can't wait to receive the photos of the day!

A highlight of our stay in Prague, good food, wine and city views.

Seeing Prague from the river at night is a must and a dinner cruise is a great way to do it. Service on our cruise was very friendly and prompt. A heavy shower didn’t dampen our spirits much. We had a group of 6 and our waiter made sure our wine glasses were never empty. The food was good, duck was the favorite choice of our group. Loved the piano music and taking pictures of Prague at night on the upper deck. If you have a good camera, bring it along as the phone cameras had a difficult time focusing on some of the city night views.

Very detailed and interesting. I learned a lot about Kafka.

Our guide provided a lot of very interesting details about Kafka's life and his literature. We even read one short text while drinking coffee in one pub (which is part of the tour). Visually there isn't much to see, but all the interesting information make up for that.

One of the best tours we have ever taken!

Our guide was Pavel and he was extremely knowledgeable and provided great explanations that made his information relatable. Prague has a rich Jewish history, but Pavel brought it all to life for us. Definitely the highlight of our time in the city!
