Prague: Attraction Tickets and Tours

Immerse yourself in Prague, known as the “City of a Hundred Spires,” and discover a meeting of old and new. Take a journey in time for a full appreciation of Prague’s cultural legacy from the medieval era to more recent 20th-century history.

You will be spoilt for a choice of attractions in Prague, with options to visit the city’s most iconic landmarks on free or affordable guides or tours.

Discover Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, on a budget, from ancient castles to monastic breweries.

Prague Castle

As the largest ancient castle in the world, the Prague Castle complex is a metropolis in itself. Originally built in the 9th century and overlooking the city, the castle is a monument of the Czech Republic.

The Prague Castle complex has been expanded over centuries, incorporating landmarks such as St. Vitus Cathedral, St. George’s Basilica, and Lobkowicz Palace.

You can also take a walk down Golden Lane to see where novelist Franz Kafka once lived. Today, Prague Castle is used as the official residence of the president of the Czech Republic.

Lobkowicz Palace

Located at Prague Castle, the Lobkowicz Palace is an important cultural hub in Prague. While it’s the only privately owned palace in the castle complex, it is open to the public to view its vast collection of art.

The Lobkowicz Palace is home to over 1,500 paintings, including artworks by Canaletto and Veronese. It also has important musical manuscripts and annotated pieces by Mozart and Beethoven.

You can attend a classical music concert at Lobkowicz Palace, which includes performances of Bach, Vivaldi, and Dvořák, along with Mozart and Beethoven.

Old Town

The Old Town is the historical and traditional city center of Prague. For hundreds of years, the Old Town Square held markets.

Here you can find the Old Town Hall and go to the top of the 70-meter tower for views of the city. It’s also where you will find the famous Astronomical clock.

One of the best ways of discovering this area is through a walking tour, during which a guide will be able to provide insight into the history of Old Town.

Astronomical Clock

Since 1410, the Astronomical Clock has struck just about every hour. Located in the Old Town Hall, this ancient clock is a major tourist attraction, even if the spectacle only lasts a couple of seconds.

This intricate clock is made up of numerous plates, dials and figures. Every hour the Astronomical Clock attracts crowds as it puts on a show. Twelve apostle figures rotate through the clock, while characters on the side also move symbolically.

Since the clock was nearly destroyed during the Second World War, it has undergone extensive repairs over decades in order to remain a landmark of Prague.

Charles Bridge

The Charles Bridge is one of the most iconic locations in Prague. Spanning 500 meters across the Vltava River, this bridge was built in the 14th century. Today it still stands as one of the highlights of Prague — and potentially a site of good luck.

Lining the bridge is 30 sculptures of saints and other notable figures. One of the most famous sculptures is of St. John of Nepomuk. This sculpture was built to commemorate his death hundreds of years after he was thrown into the Vltava River.

Some people said that if you touch his sculpture, your wishes may come true. Others say that it may mean you will one day return to Prague.

Jewish Quarter

The Jewish Quarter is a significant center in Prague where you have the opportunity to learn about and reflect on the city’s Jewish history.

Join a guided walking tour to discover more about notable places such as the Old New Synagogue. Built in 1270, this is the oldest working synagogue in Europe.

You can also visit the Pinkas Synagogue, where there are memorials dedicated to Jewish communities persecuted during the Holocaust. From here, you can pay your respects at the Old Jewish Cemetery.

Nuclear Bunker

Get a glimpse into 20th-century Prague through a tour of one of the city’s nuclear bunkers. These shelters were built early in the Cold War, when nations were on high alert for a possible outbreak of nuclear warfare.

During one of these tours, you can also learn more about what life was like under communism in Prague and important historical events such as the Prague Spring and later Velvet Revolution.

Vyšehrad Castle

Built after Prague Castle, Vyšehrad Castle has served as the seat of the monarchy and as a fortress, among other roles. Situated on a hill overlooking the Vltava River, Vyšehrad Castle is a national cultural monument.

Visit here on a tour and discover historical attractions within its grounds, including the Basilica of St. Peter and St. Paul and the Chapel of St. Martin.

In the underground casemates, visit the Gorlice Hall, where some of the original Baroque statues from the Charles Bridge are preserved.

At the Vyšehrad cemetery, you can discover the graves of some of the most famous people in Czech history, including composers Dvořák and Smetana.

Strahov

The Strahov Monastery dates back to 1140 and is today a popular tourist attraction for its breathtaking library and gallery, as well as its centuries-old brewery.

On a visit to the Strahov Monastery, you can roam the halls of the Strahov Library. Beneath frescoes on the ceiling, discover a collection of over 200,000 volumes. At the Picture Gallery, admire over 1,500 paintings.

For a unique experience, head to the Strahov Monastery Brewery. Since 2000, the brewery has revived traditional brewing at the monastery. Have a sip of one of their St. Norbert beers, named after the patron saint of the monastery.
