Best Things to do in Prague

Prague (or Praha), the capital of Czech Republic, is an outstanding city! The “City of 100 Spires ” welcomes you with wildly eclectic mix of culture, history, nightlife, beauty and affordability that differs from any other city.

The Czech Republic has the highest per capita consumption of beer in the world.


The best way to get around Prague is on foot or by public transportation such as metro, bus, tram, boat, taxis and Uber.


The currency in Prague is the Czech Crown (CZK). Czech banknotes are issued in the following denominations: 100/200/500/1000/2000/5000. Take CZK, as few hotels, shops and restaurants will accept Euros.


If you’re visiting Prague and want to see the city’s top attractions, the best area to stay is Prague 1. The city is divided into numbered districts, and Prague 1 is home to the city’s historical center and top tourist sites such as Prague Castle, the Old Town (Staré Mesto); the New Town; and the Lesser Town or Little Quarter (Malá Strana).


1) Stroll through Charles Bridge –

It is one of Prague best-known landmarks that you’ll no doubt want to see. Its construction started in 1357 under the auspices of King Charles IV, and finished in the beginning of the 15th century. The Charles Bridge is famous for the many interesting statues of saints that embellish the bridge along its length.

2) Visit the Prague Castle –

It is the largest ancient castle in the world and it’s a UNESCO world heritage site.
There are several churches, towers, palaces, halls, and other buildings within Prague Castle and are open to visitors, but you will need a ticket to enter a majority of them.

3) Watch the Astronomical Clock –

Get there 10 minutes early and catch the world’s oldest operating astronomical clock. On every hour 12 apostles pass through the window right above the astronomical dial. 

4 ) Eat a Pork Knuckle –

The most famous item in the Czech Republic cuisine is the pork knuckle and it is to die for! It’s usually marinated in herbs and dark beer, roasted, and then served with a number of accompaniments like bread, horseradish, pickles, cabbage (and Czech beer, of course). It’s tender, crispy, juicy, and delicious!

5) Dine at “U fleku” Restaurant –

The place is quite touristic, but still fun, a lot of traditional music, great local cuisine and environment. The restaurant is 800 yrs old. The waiters come around with trays of beers (although they only have one kind of beer, my friends says they were delicious). The staff also come around with shots. The food was amazing. I love their Pork Knuckle and Cheese bread. The atmosphere is so fun and authentic. There is an accordian player playing all day with short breaks. Definitely worth checking out!

6) Check out The Lennon Wall –

Also a very busy area, you have to wait in line and find a space for taking your photo. The Lennon Wall or John Lennon Wall is located close to Charles Bridge in Prague, Czech Republic. Once a normal wall, since the 1980s it has been filled with John Lennon-inspired graffiti and pieces of lyrics from Beatles’ songs. 

The wall itself is colorful and beautiful to see with bright vibrant colours & paintings. Now, a lot of people have put their own mark on the wall with tags and other quotes and so it’s less of a ‘John Lennon’ wall.

I recommend if you have fifteen minutes of your time and plus it’s also a free attraction. Further down from the wall is the Lovers Bridge where you can leave a padlock on the fence with your and your loved ones name on it. After you cross the bridge you will find the John Lennon pub.

7) Enjoy great view at the top of The Dancing House –

Inspired by Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, the building symbolises Yin and Yang. In this case, it is the blending of Communism and Democracy.

8) Prague Zoo –

Prague Zoo is considered one of the most beautiful zoo in the world and I totally agree! My babe and I took a Taxify but bus/tram will also get you here. 

It was a fabulous zoo and so much to see. The layout makes it easy to visit everything. They have Polar Bears, Monkeys, Elephants, Penguins, Zebras just to name a few. The zoo is educational. It is very green and beautifully maintained with flowers and statues. I was happy to see that all the animals are so up close. Most had a larger space to live and big enough space for the animals.

We spent 5 hours here and saw almost everything. The highlight for me were seeing different kinds of animals I haven’t seen before and some walkways have amazing view of the city and the Danube.

9) Get a Thai Massage at Thajske Masaze Shanti –

My first time getting a Thai Massage and I really enjoyed it! Thanks to our friend who recommended it. There is a happy hour price, just check their website. I called ahead and made my appointment for a 60 mins full body message and a 30 mins foot massage.

We were led into the couple’s room and oh! it was so spacious, serene and beautiful. She had the right amount of pressure all the time. There is a shower if you need it. Price was reasonable. Overall, it was one of the best massage I had!


This was my perspective on Prague. There are a lot more things to do there and one blog post can hardly cover all the places to see. If you have something to add, please write them in the comment section below. Happy Travels!

  1. I like your postings! And I would be interested in your personal experiences in these European cities! There are lots of good travelogues online but not many sites that offer a more “anthropological” perspective — general impressions, interactions with locals, personal observations (are there a lot of dogs? Do a lot of people speak English? Was there a local controversy you heard about? What do the locals wear? Do they like partying?) Happy travels!

    1. What I learned in all my travel is that every European cities are different. I noticed dogs are welcomed everywhere esp. in restaurants or any public transit except museum. I noticed Scandinavia and some parts of Spain maybe be less dog friendly.
      Germany & UK has the most number of dogs.
      Most people spoke English in Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg etc In Eastern European countries like Hungary, Czech etc I noticed only the younger generation spoke English and the ones that work in Hotels, tours and restaurant spoke English.
      They wear fitting clothes and neutral colors and dress up on dinners and special occasions.
      I would say yes they party. Although I don’t travel to party. I noticed Amsterdam, Barcelona, Praque and Budapest are quite a party city. Hope these answers your questions. Thank for checking in!
