As well as its pumping party scene and historic treasures, you’ll find fascinating museums, galleries, theatres and music venues; plus a dose of bohemian café culture in the city of Prague.
Wander the city’s cobbled streets laced with history. Visit Wenceslas Square which bore witness to the creation of the new Czechoslovak Republic in 1918 and the announcement of the fall of communism in 1989. Step back hundreds of years and discover the history of Prague Castle, the largest ancient castle in the world (it’s roughly the size of seven football fields). This vast complex has had various additions since the 9th century, so you’ll see a myriad of architectural styles of the last millennia here. You can buy a long or short tour ticket, both valid for 2 days and take your time seeing the sights. Book a historic retreat by choosing from our selection of Prague hotels close to the castle.
For fairytale views of Prague, walk across Charles Bridge, the 14th century stone bridge linking the Old Town with Prague Castle. Beat the crowds and take the stroll at dawn or late evening for a more romantic atmosphere. Another ‘must-do’ is to experience the wonder of the Old Town Astronomical Clock. On the hour, every hour the medieval clock on the side of the Old Town City Hall shows a mechanical display which sees windows open to reveal the 12 apostles.
If the weather isn’t too bright you can head for Prague’s many museums and galleries. Learn about the Czech fight for independence at The Museum of Communism, see exhibitions dedicated to Prague’s most famous author at The Franz Kafka Museum; or marvel at the art nouveau posters, paintings and panels of Czech artist Alfons Mucha (1860–1939) at The Mucha Museum. Choose from our great range of hotels near The Mucha Museum to be in walking distance from Prague’s cultural highlights.
For a classy cocktail head to the New Town (Nové Město), centered round Wenceslas Square where you can take your pick from dozens of smart bars (think, hip cellar bars). Or, head to Lucerna Music Bar one of the best places in Prague to hear live jazz. In nice weather, you can sip a cool beer in the tranquil surrounds of Letná Beer Garden. This is one of the best places in Prague to drink outside, not to mention one of the best spots to enjoy panoramic views of the city. For a touch of luxury, book one of our Hlavni Nadrazi hotels to stay close to the city’s main train station and all the action in the heart of the Prague.
