Old town square is where the beauty of Prague meets, here you will find the Clock tower and dozens of street performers. If you are looking for a tour guide, this is the place to search. You will be able to find a tour for almost everything from a bar crawl to a ghost tour. Here you can not only enjoy the architecture but enjoy many art exhibits and see where the famous author Kafka lived. If you come during a holiday such as Christmas or Easter, the square will be filled with market stands.
The most beautiful site of Prague, when walking over this bridge you will be overwhelmed by the sights and sounds. Not only are there artists to draw caricatures of you but you will have the opportunity to buy art, listen to music and enjoy the view.
After crossing the Charles Bridge the Prague Castle is the way to head, entrance is completely free unless you want to enter certain special areas, but it is not necessary enter the castle as the true atmosphere is the grounds around it, therefore if you want to save time and money do not worry about buying a ticket. Once you get to the top of the hill where the castle is you will be able to enjoy the whole over look of Prague and enter the castle with ease.
Wenceslas Square is now the center of great shopping in Prague, but yet has a great history behind it. The street is almost completely without cars but back in the day was lined with tram tracks. Here you can find many great places to eat and shop and enjoy the picturesque view of Prague.
If you plan to stay in Prague for more than just a few days the Prague Zoo is something that must be seen, it is known as the best zoo in central europe and has a great amount of animals, and could take you hours to get through it. Not only do you get to see all the amazing animals, the view from the zoo is amazing. To add to your experience, you can even take a boat on the vlatva river to the zoo for a price. For animal lovers this is the place to go, because not only will you see all the amazing animals, you will also see that the czech people can take their dog to the zoo.
If you want to enjoy the "postcard' view of Prague and enjoy a cold beer, this is the place to go. Here you will find the metronome which was created in 1991 after the fall of communism, in which it replaced a large statue of Stalin which stood in its place since 1962. The metronome symbolizes the time passing since the fall of communism.
If you want to live the true life of a local in Prague then head over to the Riegrovy sady park in Prague where you will have the view of the castle in front of you while enjoying the lovely summer sun with a beer in hand. If you like to relax and enjoy the company of your friends, spending the whole afternoon here won't be a problem.
The "secret" best view of Prague, Vysehrad is one of the rarer things to see on a tourist itinerary, but it should be moved to one of the top because it has an amazing beautiful church, a beautiful park surrounding it and a breath taking view of Prague. Before reaching the church you will have to walk through the castle walls and into a park which has cafes and places to eat, a great afternoon can be filled with a trip to Vysehrad.
If you want to spend your afternoons relaxing like a local, head over to Stromovka park where you will be able to have a beer and relax in the biggest park in Prague. The park is completely flat, so it is a perfect option for walking and running.
Spending the day touring Prague can be exhausting and sometimes an amazing coffee and cake will make the difference. Here you will find freshly baked goods for an afternoon snack and amazing fresh coffee.
This is one of the best luxury burgers you will have in your life. If your a foodie, or just a burger lover, Palanda is a must eat when traveling to Prague. It is in the center behind the Palladium mall, therefore it is easy to fit into your schedule. The prices are around 200kc for a burger and for a Czech this is quite expensive, but for tourists its a very chea meal compared to abroad.
When touring the center of Prague Las Adelitas is a must try. After being in Prague for a few days Czech food becomes way too filling and this is where Las Adelitas comes in. They serve very authentic Mexican food and margaritas, with a great Mexican atmosphere. It is located right off Old Town Square near Hard Rock Cafe and it is under ground so you must look for the sign.
For the Italian food lover this is the place to go, I had one of my best meals of my life here. The pizza is freshly made and everything is delicious, including the wide variety of desserts. The staff are Italian and extra friendly, enjoy a nice quiet lunch or dinner here. The price is on the upper side for Czech standards, but still reasonably priced.
If you want the true taste of Czech food infused with a little bit of beer the "beer house" is the place to go. Reasonably priced compared to the Czech restaurants in the exact center, here you will get goulash and many other dishes made with their homemade beer.
A typical Czech pub with a twist, not only will you get any cocktail you want for a ridiculously cheap price, there is a great chance that you will get lost in this bar. Most of the bar is completely underground and connected by tunnels, for a first timer it is always confusing and overwhelming. It's a great place to sit down and have a beer with friends and even meet new people and challenge them to a game of foosball. Usually isn't too loud, but it can be very smokey.
Most tourists who come to Prague want to try the true Czech beer, and at the Beer Museum you will get exactly what you wished for. Not only will you get the try the typical Czech beer Pilsner Urquel, but you will also get to try beer from smaller breweries around the country and also the Beer Museum's hoe brew. Prices are dirt cheap, and you could easily spend hours at the bar enjoying the different tastes they have to offer as well as the garden during the day.
If you want to have a few quiet drinks before going out, Tretter's is the place to go as it is right next to the clubs. But even though it is right next to them the atmosphere is completely different. Tretter's is a very classy, New York themed bar where the cocktails will be made with extra care, it is on the higher price side but it definitely worth it.
Here you will hear hard rock music all night long, with amazing bartenders to make you delicious cocktails. A great place for partying in the center and meet up with lots of english speaking people.
