A few things to do in Prague:
- Farmers Market- A traditional Saturday Farmers Market. This pop-up market is located on the river embankment just underneath the fortress of Vysehrad. Foodies are prepared to be blown away by some of the best food the city has to offer. Vendors serve up fully prepared local meals but you can also buy ingredients to make your own fantastic meal with offerings of local seasonal vegetables, sausages, freshly baked bread, and desserts. You can enjoy your meal or snack along the beautiful riverside.
- Astronomical Clock- Visit the Old Town Hall which is in Old Town Square and see the beautiful ornate Astronomical Clock. It was built in the fifteenth century and is widely considered the best preserved medieval mechanical clock in the world. Arrive at the top of the hour so you can see the clock move. The show at the top of the hour never fails to disappoint the many onlookers.
- Backstreets of Mala Strana- “Backstreets” gives the impression of dark alleys and danger. However, that is not the case with the back streets of Mala Strana. Across the river from Old Town are the baroque backstreets of Mala Strana. Originally built in the 17th and 18th century by victorious Catholic clerics and noblemen. A baroque square is surrounded by small shops, traditional Czech pubs, restaurants, and cafes. A great place to stroll, shop and get some fantastic views of the river.
- KGB Museum- Bring your sense of adventure to this quirky little museum established by a Russian enthusiast. It houses a large variety of memorabilia related to the secret police of the Soviet Union. It’s likely you will even be shown around by the collector himself. It has a full display of spy cameras, secret weapons, and interrogation equipment. Not exactly your classical museum but fun none the less.
- Golden Lane- Located on the grounds of Prague Castle is the mysterious Golden Lane. According to legends, alchemists on this street tried to turn ordinary materials into gold. No one’s really sure if this is an urban legend or not but the pedestrian street is very fun. Franz Kafka, the Czech-Jewish writer lived in a house on this peaceful street to do some of the legendary writing.
- Prague Castle- Probably Prague’s most popular tourist attraction. Located in the Castle District (Hradcany), this spectacular and breathtaking castle was the home of many Czech rulers and today is the official residence of the president. A lot of the castle is off limit as the President currently lives here but entry to the grounds of the castle are free and many buildings such as the Basilica of St George and Golden Lane can still be visited.
- River Vltava- While there is numerous pedestrian only, historic cobbled streets throughout Prague, a great way to get off your feet and see Prague and its historical buildings and monuments is to take a riverboat cruise on the River Vltava. Numerous providers have boats and often include lunch or dinner. Choose a two-hour cruise and that will be plenty of time to see the unique views and enjoy the peace and quiet of the riverbanks.
- Have a Pivo- Everyone knows the Czechs claim to have the best pivo (beer) in the world and Prague is a great place to test this out. Prague offers a huge choice of bars and different types of lagers in traditional mugs. Budvar and Staropramen are two of the top Czech lagers but there has also been a large craft beer explosion in Prague. Microbreweries have popped up throughout the country. Most Czechs like their lighter ales, chilled with a foam head but there are darker ales being produced as well. The Prague Beer Museum offers more than 31 quality beers on tap as well as the history of beer in Prague.
- Vitus Cathedral- Located on the grounds of the Prague Castle is St. Vitus Cathedral. This spectacular church with stained glass is visible from all around the city of Prague. Amazingly, this Cathedral was only built in 1929 although it looks to be centuries old. Many great surprises in St Vitus like the tomb of St John of Nepomuk and the splendid Chapel of St Wenceslas make this a must visit.
- Puppet Show- The people of Prague are fascinated with puppets. The city has over 20 specialized puppet shops, 30 puppet makers, and even a puppet museum. The Czech’s love of puppets goes back to the 12th Century where royals were treated to puppet shows and the tradition continues. You can catch a puppet show at the National Marionette Theatre and Theatre Spejbla Hurvinek which both offer regular performances.
