If you want to know the top 5 must see tourist locations before jetting off to Prague, this post will guide you through the amazing city and all it has to offer, with inside tips from my personal experience.
This was my most favourite place in the whole of Prague.
Despite the history of invasions in Prague, the Old Town Square has remained relatively untouched since the 10th Century. Hundreds of tourists crowd the historical cobbled streets. The square itself is the perfect place to admire the wonderful architecture that Prague has to offer. Not only that, but the square is full of various street performers and entertainers which restaurants and cafes.
One of the best parts about Charles Bridge, it's free. A leisurely walk across the 14th Century pedestrian only bridge is one of the most memorable experiences of visiting Prague. The bridge was commissioned in 1357 by Charles IV to replace an older bridge that had been washed away by floods. Although completed in 1390, with the striking statues added in the 17th century.
Seeing Prague from the river Vltava is a magical experience and offers a way to see the many historical buildings and monuments right next to the river. Boat tours within the city are competitively priced and often include coffee and cake depending on the time of day you choose to embark.
U krále Brabantského
Otherwise known as the oldest pub in Prague. The pub has kept to it's original roots and has medieval shows. The whole pub is only lit by candle light to keep to its authenticity. This is the perfect stop before heading up the castle steps.
If you fancy talking a triumphant walk towards the castle, take the castle steps. Once you've reached the top the view is breath taking (mainly because you've walked up a load of steps) and rewarding.
