Prague Attractions

Set like a jewel in the very heart of Europe Prague throughout its long history has played a significant role in continental politics and culture. Now firmly ranked among the most visited European destinations Prague’s old town has been accredited as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Charles Bridge built in the 14th century at the direction of King Charles IV who is said to have laid the first stone himself

leads you to Prague Castle Wenceslas Square and the Astronomical Clock. Beyond the main sights there are endless opportunities for diversion in Prague from brewery tours to river cruises but often the most memorable time is that spent just sitting at a shaded cafe drinking in the atmosphere of this unique and beautiful city.

Areas & Neighbourhoods in Prague

Staré Město - Prague’s old town is a wondrous medley of architectural styles from Gothic to Renaissance and baroque with a particular highlight being the medieval astronomical clock the oldest still working in existence. Mounted on the Old Town Hall legend has it that if the clock is neglected ill-fortune will befall the city.

Vinohrady - Within easy walking distance of Wenceslas Square if you’re staying in this lively area and get lost just look up for the Communist-era TV tower on the skyline to help you get your bearings.

Holešovice - A short hop by tram into the city centre Holešovice is an up-and-coming area that is slowly becoming more gentrified while retaining much of its character. New galleries cafes and restaurants are popping up all over the place and the Prague Zoo and National Gallery are also found here.

Malá Strana - To reach Malá Strana otherwise known as the Little Quarter cross the Charles Bridge from the Old Town. Many of the houses here have baroque facades while the Wallenstein Palace and its landscaped courtyards are especially impressive.

Nové Město - Stay in the New Town for chic accommodation and dining options. The extravagant Dancing House designed by Vlado Milunić and Frank Gehry sits on the riverside.

Things to See in Prague

Prague can be seen from the river on a dinner cruise along the Vltava or from a different perspective altogether on a guided tour of the city’s underground tunnels and medieval passages by lamplight. A good day-trip idea is the beautiful spa town of Karlovy Vary which has hosted Goethe Chopin Beethoven and Peter I of Russia among other luminaries. Here you can taste refreshing spring water straight from the source and take a dip in a traditional bathhouse. There’s plenty to see with a Historical City Sightseeing Tour.

Things to Do in Prague

You’ll not be short of evening entertainment ideas in Prague. Try an exuberant Czech beer tour where you’ll sample some of the best locally-produced ales or a traditional folklore show with dinner. Another slice of Czech culture comes from a performance of Mozart with a live orchestra interpreting pieces from the composer’s masterpieces such as The Magic Flute. If you have an afternoon to spare a tour of Prague Castle thought to be the largest ancient castle in the world is well worth it. Built in the year 870 it encompasses a variety of architectural influences and holds an annual Shakespeare Festival in the grounds of one of its palaces every summer.
