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

It was a good way to start touring the city - by bus.

We were happy with this tour and the information we listened to on our headphones.
Prague: Historic City Center Bus Tour Reviewed by Don, 08/23/2016

Jewish tour Fascinating, humbling, historical. Thank you Micha!

My daughter and I were incredibly fortunate to have a personal tour with Micha which far exceeded our expectations. Her knowledge and historical perspective resulted in a fascinating and interesting tour. Micha answered all our questions clearly and with good humour. Thank you Micha for your guidance through Jewish Prague. Highly recommended!
Prague: Jewish Quarter with Admission Tickets Reviewed by Mike, 08/23/2016

Easy booking. Easy to find where to collect tickets. Good information

Much easier than negotiating the 10,000 varieties of tickets available to buy at the castle.

Great way of seeing the city whilst having fun!

Remy was a great guide. It decided to pour down just as we were starting the tour but Remy did his best to avoid the rain as much as possible. Thankfully rain stopped about half way through tour. Very informative and good fun from Remy - would definitely recommend to friends.
Prague Segway Grand City Tour Reviewed by Jeff, 08/15/2016

Absolutely Fantastic! Driver was great too.

Normally I’d always opt for public transport but it wasn’t practical on my journey because I was living on the far out skirts of the city and there were many transfers on my journey, the journey was also going to be very long on public transport. I did not know about this service until a few days before my flight, but when I discovered it, I did not hesitate, the price was very good considering a drop off to my chosen location, which I’d never been to so it’d save me from getting lost, and I don’t speak Czeck should I get lost. I also do not regret it, it was an exceptional experience. My Flight was delayed but I still had my driver waiting for me just as promised. It’s the real time service that these guys are good at. The driver was really friendly he taught me my first Czech phrases (Ahoj and dobrý den). I also got a tourist guide and a free walking tour included in the price which was just a super bargain I welcomed as I was on a budget trip, so saved me even more pennies.
