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

Best, most intelligent and funiest guide ever.

Our guide Martina was fluent in English and knew a lot of stories to tell about Prague's history and all the places she took us. Of course she also told us about Pagan gods and customs. You may always ask her questions and she will answer. Her tour was not stereotype and not learnt by heart. Very entertaining and informative. Martina also offers Trabi tours. Just in case you are more in cars than mystery :)
Prague 2-Hour Witch Hunt Tour Reviewed by Julia, 05/24/2016

An interesting and fun way to see Prague!

We were a group of 6 (2 adults and 4 kids aged between 11 and 14) and there was no-one else on the trip, so we basically had a private tour. Harry was very knowledgeable and showed us lots of interesting places, some of which we probably wouldn't have come across ourselves. The pace was good with lots of stops and wasn't too tiring even though it actually lasted 4 hours. We would definitely recommend this bike tour.

Skip the Line: New Prague Free Tour Reviewed by Derek, 05/20/2016

Very funny, tasty and informative activity

The guide was very sympathic and had a lot of information about czech beer breweries and beer production in general. The group was also in a great mood - after the third beer everyone was just laughing and having fun. If you like beer and are open to try different variations of czech beers, I can totally recommend this activity.
