As the crossroads of vibrant history and architectural beauty, it’s no wonder that the City of a Hundred Spires is one of Europe’s most sought-after travel destinations, welcoming more than 8 million visitors annually.
From its Renaissance architecture and Gothic grace to its modern art and eclectic nightlife, it’s fair to say that this UNESCO-listed city offers something for every kind of traveler.
So whether you want to romantically meander down the riverside under the moonlight or simply sink a few Pilsners, there’s no shortage of fun and memorable things to do in Prague.
1 – Kick off your adventure at the Prague Castle
A postcard-worthy UNESCO World Heritage Site, the iconic Prague Castle regularly leaves travelers mesmerized by its façade.
The magnificent castle is the official residence of the president and, historically, was the seat of Czech rulers.
Luckily for us, entry to the castle grounds is free. However, for the full experience — which includes the Golden lanes, St. Vitus Cathedral, and the Basilica of St. George — a combined entry ticket is your best bet.

2 – Explore the historical invasions in the Old Town
Come rain or shine, you’ll always find swarms of tourists crowing the historical Old Town Square. The place is perfect for admiring the incredible architecture of Prague and is teeming with street performers, musicians, cafes and restaurants.
Hot tip: make your way up to the Old Town Bridge Tower for scintillating views of Old Town and the Vltava River.
3 – Get a glimpse of the famous Astronomical Clock
If you’re focused on finding free things to do in Prague, jot down Old Town’s Astronomical Clock on the list!
Every hour on the dot, the animatronic clock puts on a marvelous performance depicting the walk of the 12 apostles.
Most free walking tours will make a stop at the base of the clock, although it’s the climb up the tower itself that tourists can’t stop raving about.
4 – Soak in panoramic views from Lobkowicz Palace
No trip to the City of a Hundred Spires is complete without experiencing a 180-degree view of the city’s historic skyline — best seen from the exclusive, unobstructed perch of the Lobkowicz Palace.
Besides the unforgettable vistas on offer, the palace also includes a vast collection of historical art and puts on daily music concerts.
5 – Experience calm and serenity at the Strahov Monastery
Tired of crowded places? No worries; the Strahov Monastery provides you with a blissful setting to recharge the batteries.
Situated out the back of Prague Castle and Petrin Hill, the spacious monastery is known for its impressive views of Lesser Town (the historic area between Prague Castle and the Vltava River).
Beer lovers, take note: the Strahov Monastery Brewery, just a few steps away from Prague Castle, is nothing short of a hidden treasure.
6 – Wander around the Jewish Quarter
Due to the tragic and trying history associated with the area, and the resilience of its people, the historic Jewish Quarter (locally known as Josefov) has become one of the highest-trafficked places in Prague.
From the Jewish Museum to its spectacular synagogues, the former ghetto is now teeming with eye-opening insights into the area’s stormy past.
An undisputed icon is the Spanish synagogue — built in Moorish Revival style, the beautiful building is a must-see, especially when hosting classical music concerts. Guarding the entrance is a statue of famous writer, Franz Kafka, whose struggling story is etched into stone.
7 – Reserve a seat on a jazz dinner cruise
After a long day of exploring there’s nothing better than kicking up your feet and admiring the sparkling Prague lights at twilight on a smooth-moving river cruise.
Besides the views, guests can dig into a multi-course meal (authentically Czech) and take full advantage of the onboard bar — made all the merrier by the live jazz band.

As you navigate through the medieval capital in search of victory, the game will lead you to bustling squares, iconic Old Town buildings, and quaint lesser-known regions.
If you consider yourself a bit of a competitive beast, it makes for an awesome day out.
12 – Join a Prague Art Nouveau and Cubist Architecture tour
Typically taking around 3 hours, these fascinating tours teach visitors about the history, stories, and art of 20th-century Prague.

If this particular bus tour isn’t quite right, a range of alternatives are on offer too — from hop-on-hop-off to private vans, and even a party bus, you’ll find something that matches your rhythm.
14 – Unravel the darkest chapter of Prague’s history at the Terezin Concentration Camp
The sobering Terezin Concentration Camp was the former site of one the most tragic events in modern history.
On guided tours of the WWII facility, visitors can retrace the story of Jewish prisoners, walk through its buildings, and learn about what really happened behind its walls.
Be aware, these tours can be particularly emotional and difficult, so make sure you’re in the right headspace.
15 – Discover the bones and art piece at Kutna Hora
Looking for a perfect day trip from Prague? Then why not visit the UNESCO-listed small town of Kutra Hora?
Located in Central Bohemia, the city’s focal point is its Sedlec Ossuary: a cave-like space adorned with the bones of 40,000-70,000 people — once a resting place, it is now also considered a strange example of macabre art.
Be sure to visit the Old Town, admire its beautifully designed buildings, and grab a bite at an authentically Czech Dacicky restaurant.
16 – Go Hiking at Bohemian Switzerland
A wonderful change of pace from the busy cobblestone streets, Bohemian Switzerland — just 90 minutes from Prague, near Germany — is flush with endemic wildlife and diverse landscapes, none more impressive than the Pravcicka Archway and Kamnitz Gorge.
If you’ve got time to stay for more than a day, don’t miss the chance to embark on an overnight hiking tour — with large plateaus overlooking the curving rivers, it makes for the perfect sunrise picture.
17 – Bathe in the ‘Beer Spa’
There are no hot stones or massage oil here… only good ole beer!
Bathing in beer might sound a little odd, however, the Czechs believe it offers benefits for the mind and body, acting as a destresser and skin revitalizer.
The beer spa ticket includes a private spa room with a white straw bed and beer bath, and, of course, unlimited Krusovice beer on top.
18 – Zoom around town in a vintage car!

19 – Explore the Gallery Of Steel Figures
A unique take on the typical wax museum, the Gallery Of Steel Figures is the only spot in the city where guests can witness sculptures inspired by movie stars, cartoon characters, and even animals — all made from recycled steel scraps.
Unlike most museums, you’re actually allowed to touch the exhibits. In fact, you can interact with them — jump in the steel supercar or pose with the iron Stormtrooper — making for plenty of hilarious photos.
20 – Get mesmerized with the magnificence of Karlstejn Castle
Just one look at the Karlstejn Castle’s facade and you’ll be in awe.
While you can certainly take a tour to get a glimpse of the castle’s interior, Karlstejn is best appreciated from a distance.
So, grab a riverside table on a restaurant patio, buy a bottle of Karlstejn wine, and appreciate the view!
With bike tours (that also visit the Crystal Factory) and VIP tours available, there are a number of ways to enjoy this countryside marvel.

Are you fascinated by how certain things are made? Then the Nizbor Glass Factory in Central Bohemia should sit high atop the bucket list.

The guided tours last for about 45 minutes and are available in German and English.
22 – Grab a glass of beer at Pilsner Urquell Brewery
France has the croissant and Spain has sangria — Czech has Pilsner Urquell Lager.
Luckily for thirsty tourists, the nation’s most famous brewery, found in the town of Pilsen (or Plzen) is open for tours!
On the guided walkthrough, visitors have the chance to understand the brewing process, and, most importantly, taste the range of beers.
While Pilsner is the undisputed frontrunner brand, beer enthusiasts also recommend trying Kozell, Svijany, Matuska, and Bernard.
23 – Visit the Konopiste and Český Šternberk Castles
At the latter, visitors are given a glimpse of how the Sternberg family went about their days; meanwhile, at the former, it’s all about the man who spent his final years here: Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria.

Couples, listen up!
Whether you opt for a jazz cruise, dinner cruise, or the straightforward sightseeing cruise, a boat trip down the Vltava River is about as romantic as it gets.

25 – Scoot around town with a Segway tour
Quickly becoming one of the most popular things to do in Prague for anyone who prefers not to walk too much on those rocky cobblestones, Segway tours combine some of the most sought-after landmarks — like Petrin lookout, the Embassy Area, and Prague Castle — with the family-friendly fun of gliding on two wheels.
If you’re looking to let your hair down a little, some segway adventures even go brewery-hopping!
26 – Burn some calories on a bike tour
A perfect way to enjoy the fresh air, explore the city, and burn off all the Trdelník, bike tours run across almost every area in the city.
But Prague is so hilly! — we hear you, but don’t fret. E-bikes are optional, making the city’s hills a breeze.
Since it’s technically a bike, it’d be remiss of us not to mention the beer bike — a wonderful way to socialize.
27 – Go skydiving!
Reserved for the bravest of souls, a skydiving adventure over the Czech countryside is guaranteed to deliver an adrenaline rush like never before.
The plane takes you up to an altitude of 14,000 feet and before you know it, boom, you’re freefalling at terminal velocity.
With a tandem guided pulling the strings (literally), no experience is needed. So, have you got what it takes?
28 – … or try indoor skydiving instead
Craving a freefall but intimidated by the thought of jumping out of a plane? Don’t worry, you’re not the only one!
The Prague Skydiving Arena (officially the first free fall simulator and wind tunnel in Eastern and Central Europe) provides exactly that, offering a risk-free thrill.
Always supervised by experienced instructors, the wind tunnel is even suitable for kids!
29 – Go white-water rafting
Contrary to most urban cities, you don’t need to venture too far out to feel the rush of the whitewater here in Prague.
Prague’s Wildwater Canal (where the Czech Olympic team trains) offers Class III-IV whitewater, guaranteed to get the blood pumping!
If your thirst for thrills is still yet to be quenched, the 4-day loop adventure that canoes from Rozmberk to Cesky Krumlov and back to Prague ought to do the trick.
30 – Paddleboard on the Vltava River
Ditch the crowded streets; instead, glide underneath Prague’s famous bridges on your very own stand-up paddleboard!

31 – Enjoy the best view of Prague from Letná Park
For an unforgettable view of the city look no further than Letna Park.
The greenery stretches all the way from the Kinský Garden all the way to Holešovice, passing through Petřín and the Prague Castle Gardens — so despite its central location, it’s large enough to find plenty of peace and quiet.
The nearby Letna Plain is frequented by roller-skaters and joggers, and you’ll find plenty of locals sitting on the grass with a beer.
32 – Watch the city from the sky with a hot air balloon ride
If it’s unobstructed views you’re after, look no further.
Sunrise adventures start with some refreshments as your hot air balloon is being prepared. Thereafter, once sky-high, guides explain everything there is to see below. And finally, for the cherry on top, round out the activity with a champagne toast!
Tours provide hotel pick-up and drop-off, so all you need to do is ensure you don’t hit snooze on the alarm clock.
33 – Check out the Apple Museum! (No, not the fruit)
At the revered Pop Art Gallery, visitors can unravel the extraordinary life and vision of none other than Steve Jobs, a man who helped shape today’s technology-focused world.
The Apple Museum contains the biggest private collection of Apple products made between 1976 and 2012, including the Apple II and Apple I, and an iPod ‘family tree’, plus Steve Jobs’ very own jeans and sneakers.
Android fans might want to give this one a miss.
34 – Learn a few things at the Museum of Communism
At the Museum of Communism, exhibitions depict the everyday life of area’s post-WWII socialist regime — focusing on both Czechoslovakia in general and Prague more specifically.
With displays dedicated to censorship, propaganda, Stalin, militia, police, and education, guests can form a fundamental understanding of the now-ostracized way of thinking.
Today, the communism museum sits next to a McDonald’s and a casino — an ironic juxtaposition.
35 – Spend your evening at a medieval dinner show!
A 5-course medieval dining experience with unlimited drinks! How does that sound?
On the stage, an electric medieval-themed performance features extremely talented belly dances, swordsmen, and jugglers.

37 – Get buzzed with a Czech beer tasting

It’s fun, it’s social, and it’s a great way to meet new people, making it one of the more popular things to do in Prague for those over 18.
38 – Treat your tastebuds with a food tour
Food is life! And that statement rings particularly true in the Czech capital.
As you stroll along the cobblestoned streets, the intoxicating scent of fresh Trdlnik (a sweet pastry) fills the air.
This beloved tourist favorite, as well as a range of local meats, beers, wines, and cheeses (including the delicacy that is fried cheese), are all part of the walking food tours.
So, who’s hungry?
39 – Go winery hopping!
Prague might have a glowing reputation for beer but it also holds a special place in the hearts of wine lovers. So, why not take a wine tour and discover what all the fuss is about?
With gourmet tastings at a range of scenic vineyards in places like Melnik and Kutna Hora (and even wine-themed river cruises), there’s no shortage of opportunity to try a few blends.
Thankfully, someone else is organized to do all the driving, so you can drink to your heart’s content!
40 – Take front row at a black light theatre show
With interactive state-of-the-art special effects and whimsical storytelling, the colorful performance at the Blacklight Theatre is far from your typical night of entertainment.

As a little-known staple of Czech culture, it’s a must for the bucket list.
41 – Attend the Czech Folklore Show
For travelers eager to dive into folk traditions, music, and songs (both Czech and Moravian), a themed dinner is exactly what the doctor ordered.
Through traditional costumes, native dishes, and no shortage of Pilsners, a number of venues around the city create interactive yet romantic atmospheres.
Eat till you’re stuffed, join in on the dancing, or simply sit back and revel in the sounds.
42 – Watch the Puppet show at the National Marionette Theatre
For a different style of entertainment, the National Marionette Theater (Prague’s oldest puppet theatre) organizes its very own Puppets Gala performance, a lively ensemble of the area’s finest puppeteer skits.
Of all the shows on offers, the classic puppet operas of Don Giovani and Mozart come highly recommended.
Thanks to its location in the Old Town neighborhood, it’s a convenient post-dinner activity.
43 – Take a rejuvenating dip at Aquapalace
Located about 30 minutes away from Prague, Aquapalace is the largest sauna and waterpark in the region, offering rides that provide adrenaline, relaxation, and everything in between.
Check out the laser show, race against your friend on the steep slides, relax on the 450-meter-long wildwater river, or (if you’re brave enough) tackle the extremely fast Spacebowl funnel ride.
44 – Travel to the historic Cesky Krumlov
Built with Baroque, Gothic, and Renaissance elements, Cesky Krumlov is the epitome of an architectural melting pot.
When checking out the South Bohemia town, don’t miss the chance to visit the 13th-century Cesky Krumlov Castle, almost as large as the town itself!
To makes the most of the region, choose a tour that includes a stop at Hluboka Castle on the way, then cap off the evening with an ice-cold beer (or four) at the Budva brewery!
45 – Get goosebumps on a ghost tour
Traveling to Prague isn’t just about strolling through the Vltava River or watching the sunset from Charles Bridge — the city has another side, a haunted side.
On a locally-led ghost tour, those with nerves of steel will be escorted through the gloomy back streets of Prague beneath the moonlight, hearing dark tales of centuries gone by at places like the Stary zidovsky Hrbitov (an eerie medieval cemetery).
You’ll never think of Prague the same way again.
46 – Pull the trigger with an educational shooting experience
Shooting an M16, Magnum revolver, or AK47 isn’t for everyone. But for a certain type of traveler, it’s a thrill and a rush unlike any other.

47 – Tantalize your taste buds with a truffle hunt!
Foodies, listen up!

52 – Sit in the historical part at Vysehrad

Hats off to the owners for that wordplay, right?
With countless monuments and popular attractions remodeled entirely from Lego bricks, the Czech RepuBRICK truly is a sight to behold.

63 – Pay your respects at the Church of Our Lady before Týn
Found in the heart of Old Town, this 14th-century Church is famous for one incredible feature: wherever you are in Prague, near or far, the Gothic church remains visible.
Legend says that this stunning Church was a major inspiration behind the design of Walt Disney’s very own Sleeping Beauty Castle — and that should be reason enough to chuck it on the bucket list.

68 – Examine the rare artifacts at the KGB Museum
A fascinating alternative to the run-of-the-mill art museum, this hidden gem houses a collection of declassified tools once used by the Soviet Secret Service.

Before you leave, be sure to check out the photos of old-school Prague taken by the KGB in 1968.
69 – Appreciate the graffiti on the Lennon Wall
Located in the Mala Strana district, the Lennon wall has been a strong symbol of peace and democracy ever since it was created following the great musician’s assassination in 1980.
Unlike other graffiti walls, this one’s truly special because of its history — John Lennon became a heroic figure for praising and promoting freedom in Prague, and the colorful wall honors his values to this day.
You’ll typically find street performers in the area playing “Imagine”. It’s a little cheesy but moving nonetheless.
70 – Locate the Underground Corridor at National Museum
Covering various fields and disciplines, there’s something for every interest at National Museum, the largest in the Czech Republic.
Its 14-million-item collection is so big, in fact, that it occupies two adjacent (and magnificent) buildings at Wenceslas Square – connected by a crowd favorite underground corridor.
Hot tip: avoid the queues, save a few bucks, and book online in advance.
71 – Check out the DOX Centre for Contemporary Art
The DOX Centre houses a truckload of art, spanning everything from fine art to literature, the performing arts, and architecture. On that basis alone, it’s worth a visit.
However, what truly separates this place from your typical art gallery is what sits on its roof: a 42-meter long steel and wood airship.
When it’s time for a well-earned break, head to a café or bookstore, or relax at the terrace where sublime city views await.
72 – Climb up to the Žižkov Television Tower
Rising about 700 feet above the streets of Prague, the Žižkov Television Tower holds its own as the tallest building in town.
Call it grotesque art or call it a political statement, either way, thanks to the 6-feet-tall baby sculptures that climb the walls, it’s a tourist delight.
Home to Restaurant Oblaca, Bar & Bistro 66, and an observation deck, it makes for a great dinner and drinks combo.
73 – Walk across Charles Bridge again and again
One of the most stunning gothic bridges globally, Charles Bridge is the lifeblood of Prague’s tourism.
Besides the wonderful river views, it has become a lively attraction in its own right, with musicians, artists, and all kinds of vendors setting up shop.
Hot hip: Visit the bridge at night to see the famous Prague Castle spotlit on the hillside, with the added bonus of fewer tourists around to disturb you.
74 – Get wild on a pub crawl
Alright, enough museums and castles!
With unlimited drinks, a locally-led pub crawl is a great chance to connect with like-minded parties from all over the world and expand your social circles.
After hopping from bar to bar, you’ll likely end the night at the famous 5-story nightclub, Karlovy Lazne.
It’s a night you definitely won’t forget — well, actually, that depends on how many Pilsners you drink.
Want to save a few bucks?
To make the most of your trip to the historically rich Golden City, consider getting yourself a Prague City Card. It includes free entry to over 60 famous attractions like the Jewish Museum and Prague Castle, and also provides hefty discounts on tours and other popular attractions.
