10 Must See and Do in Prague, Czech Republic

Only have the weekend to see Prague? That’s okay, that’s all you need! This beautiful romantic city is fairly small enough to see in 2-4 days, depending on the speed of how you like to spend your travels. I’ve been here once in late November (SOOO COLD), but I really loved how charming this place was. So, here’s my guide to the top 10 Must See and Do in Prague:

1. Eat Some Street Food and Drink Hot Wine. Street food in Prague is all DELICIOUS. Most of the food served in restaurants are heavy on potatoes, meat and sauce. The street food was more to my likings.

2. Take a Free Walking Tour. You can easily spot out a tour group when you get to the center of the city. They’re everywhere and it’s completely free (but do tip your guide!). They’re usually a good couple hours, organized in the morning or in the afternoon. When I went, my group loved the afternoon one so much that we went on a different one in the morning, the next day!

3. Go on an International Bar Hop. Prague is known to have one of the best international bar hops because all the bars are pretty close to each other and people here LOVE to drink. It’s about 25-30 Euros and you get a free drink from each place. If you’ve never bar hopped before, then I highly recommend you try it in Prague.

4. Write on the John Lennon Wall. To me, this was a total non-hidden gem of the trip. It is absolutely lovely, especially if you get a chance to be there when there’s music playing. For me at least, it was pretty touching.

5. Catch the Sunset at Petrin Hill. This is such a MUST. Seeing the sun setting before the red rooftops is seriously a spectacular view. Walk up, grab yourself some hot wine and watch the beautiful scenery.

6. Take a Walk on Charles Bridge. If you talk to any of the tour guides or any Czech, as a matter of fact, they will all gladly explain to you the history of King Charles and his famous “egg” bridge. It’s their pride and joy:

7. Learn the History of the Prague Astronomical Clock. The story behind the clock and how it actually functions is quite fascinating. Ask your walking tour guide or read up about it here. Long story short, it’s the oldest working astronomical clock in the world, built in 1410.

8. Go Souvenir Shopping on Golden Lane. This is very close to the Town Square. It’s a short narrow road full of mini cute shops. Most of them sell really nice souvenirs. Maybe you and your significant other can buy a lock and attach it along the many fences in Prague?

9. Stroll through the Old Town Square. The 360 view from the center of the Town Square is pretty neat. You can see a lot of Prague’s famous architecture by just being here.

10. See the Prague Castle at Night. The night scene is unreal, enough said.
