10 Places to visit in Prague

Prague’s beauty has earned it many nicknames,including “City of hundred spires” and “Heart of Europe”. It could take weeks to explore the many beauties of Prague – but if you only have few days, it’s good idea to stick to must-see list. Here is my must-see list :

1. Charles Bridge

A simple walk across the 14th Century bridge is one of the most enjoyable and 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.
It is popular with Czech artists, musicians and souvenir vendors whose stands line both sides of the bridge year-round.

2. The Old Town Square

The Old Town Square has remained relatively untouched since the 10th Century.
Near the northeastern corner of the square, you will see the Jan Hus Memorial. Jan Hus was a Czech church reformer executed in 1415. His teachings had a profound influence on the history of the Czech nation.

5. Prague Castle


Holding the record for the largest coherent castle complex in the world, Prague Castle serves double duty as the residence of the Czech president and a popular tourist destination.Entry to the grounds of the castle are free although many buildings such as the St Vitus cathedral, Basilica of St George and Golden Lane can be visited with a combined entry ticket.

6. Wallenstein Palace

This palace is one of the most beautiful things i saw in Prague. It has a gorgeous garden that is spotlessly clean. It has a wonderful fountain and the senate of Czech Republic and Dripstone Wall are also there . There are peacocks that walk freely.  

7. Petrín Park

Petrín Park is the city’s biggest and most beautiful park, with sweeping views of Prague. You’ll find a garden, a maze, and a lookout tower that looks like the Eiffel Tower. You can climb the 299 steps to the top of the tower and get an awesome view of Prague.

8. Pubs 

Czech republic is famous for delicious beer and food, it would be a shame if you go to Prague and try Czech beer and traditional food in some of many pubs ( don’t worry about the age, Czechs beer doesn’t have a lot of alcohol,they don’t think that beer is an alcoholic drink and even kids can drink it).

9. The Dancing House

A building with a new and modern styled architecture that has gotten big attention in social media. But despite that, not everyone who visits Prague knows about this incredible building. If you like unique buildings, then this is a great place to visit in Prague!

10. The Treasures of St Vitus Cathedral


The St Vitus cathedral is one of the attractions located in the castle grounds. It is visible from all around the city of Prague. Although the cathedral looks many hundreds of years old, it was in fact completed in 1929.
