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!

Prague Extravaganza Old Town & Jewish Quarter Free Tour Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer, 04/25/2016

Awesome way to explore the city if you are short on time

We booked this for my wife's birthday and were not let down. 3 hours on Segway was fun and a great way to explore most of the popular tourist spots in Prague. Peter was amazing, friendly and very knowledgeable - highly recommended! We learnt a great deal about the city and also had a chance to click pictures. We were also lucky to have a good weather during our visit and thoroughly enjoyed this experience.
Prague Segway Grand City Tour Reviewed by Jasjeet, 04/20/2016

Very convenient option and informative team member.

This is always the way to go to skip standing in long lines through half the day. There was someone on site standing and waiting with my ticket and let me know what areas the ticket was good for. It doesn't get you into all of the properties, but it hits all the ones most people would find interesting.

Service provided seemless and effortless - customer happy - good value

My plane was earlier, but the driver appeared on time as stated on my request with my name. Waited a bit for another customer. Also received the map of the city, and a discount voucher for a walk. Thank you. I think the easiness with which one can order this service (via mobile app), the payment, the mobile receipt (no printing) nad subsequent delivery of service is good value for money.

Incredible Day Trip with an Incredible Tour Guide!

We had the privilege of touring with Petr from Gray Line in Prague. His depth of knowledge of the historical facts was astounding. He was very willing to answer any and all questions. This made the trip "come alive' for us and created a wonderful camaraderie as we spent over 6 hours in the touring van with him. The tour of the Rosenberg Palace was amazing in terms of the preservation of the furnishings from the 15th, 16th and 17th centuries. The town of Cesky Krumlov is a jewel and is so perfect it could be a movie set! If you have time, spend the night in this magical town. If you have only a short visit to Prague be sure to fit this trip in on your schedule and definitely request "Petr" from Gray LIne Tours. He was just superb.
