Top Tours & Activities 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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
We had 4 days in Prague so a day trip helped break up the time in the city and add to our overall experience. Plenty to see besides the Bone Chapel. Andrea the guide was excellent, knowledgeable and passionate. Lunch stop was great too.
What a wonderful way to explore and learn about the city that is Prague! We were entertained with legends that we would otherwise have not heard and learnt a bit more of Prague's history too! Our guide Hunzer (Jack) was wonderful, knowledgeable and a great story teller - a great night out and the legends will be remembered for a very long time! Thank you!
We were 19 boys, and this was a great alternative for us. We are so happy for this trip and learned so much about Prague, much interesting history. Well spend time and money!
We weren't sure if a 3 hour bus and walking tour would be too long or dull for us but we needn't have worried. Our guide (George) was superb! George not only knew lots about Prague's political history and architecture - he knew lots of fun anecdotes like which building had doubled as the American Embassy in 'The Bourne Identity' which impressed my son on the tour. The time flashed past and all my family enjoyed our introduction to Prague. A quality morning was had by all.
This was great fun I booked for my friends hen do, our tour guide was brilliant and really knew his stuff, we all had a great time. I would highly recommend this.
