The Summer Days of Prague

97%
Found this guide helpful

Prague has amazing things to do in the summer, but if your a tourist you won't be able to get the true taste of Prague without knowing where to go first. Prague is not only known for its beautiful architecture, but it is also an amazing place to enjoy a nice cold beer on a summer day with the most beautiful view you could imagine. Summer brings an abundance of outside restaurants and beer gardens, where you can enjoy Prague like a true local. To get the true experience of Prague you won't only need to see the sites but live the "Prague summer life". From the sites, food to nightlife...

Rebecca P's City Tips

  • Avoid the Czech restaurants in the tourist/site zones, you can usually get the same dish for less than half the price
  • Use public transport, taxis are over priced and barely used by locals (get a three day public transport ticket)
  • Tipping is not as important as in the U.S therefore a tip of 50 kc is considered very generous
  • Day trips are easy, head to Karlovy Vary, Cesky Krumlov and more
  • Try doing most of the sightseeing in one day and leave to others to explore
  • Don't be fooled by the map, it is easy to walk to all sites
  • You can see all the major sites in one day

    Rebecca P Says:

    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.

    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.

    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.

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 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.

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.

    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.
