Ten Things to do in Prague
Discover the elegance of the City of a Hundred Spires
One of the most vibrant holiday destinations in Europe, Prague boasts a rich historic past and incomparable architectural masterpieces which melt harmoniously with a unique, contemporary urban vibe. It is the largest city and capital of the Czech Republic, competing with world-renowned gems such as Paris or London in attracting thousands of tourists from all over the world all year round. Once the capital of Bohemia, Prague lies along the shores of the River Vlatva and still preserves its original charm, as most of its Art Nouveau-style and Baroque buildings, gothic towers, and historic houses survived the bombings in World War II. With dozens of art galleries and museums, cathedrals and monuments, and countless bars and cafes where you can try some of the best Czech beer brews, everyone will find entertainment and plenty of things to do in Prague.

Discover the gems of Malá Strana- the Lesser Quarter
- The Wallenstein Garden: built in the 17th century, this elegant Baroque garden is the perfect place to take refuge from the summer tourist crowds. A majestic loggia, an ornamental pond and an enormous fake stalactite grotto convey a unique allure to the garden.
- The John Lennon Wall: this living tribute to the Beatles’ leader and pacifist activist has stood through the decades despite the graffiti being white painted several times. The wall is covered with political messages, lyrics from the Beatles’ songs, and a painted image of Lennon.
- St Nicholas Church: characterized by its distinctive green cupola, the church (not to be confused with the homonymous church in the Old Town Square) is a magistral example of Baroque architecture and a venue for classical music concerts.
Discover local gastronomy and beer
- Grilované klobásy: try this delicious grilled sausage sandwich, served with mustard or other sauces, that you can find at every food stall and beer garden in the city.
- Nakládaný hermelín: Pickled cheese is a must if you want to eat like a local in Prague. Try it with dark bread, onions and peppers for an authentic traditional taste.
- Dumplings are part of many Czech traditional dishes, such as goulash or raiska omáčka, a beef soup with sweet tomato sauce and dumplings.
- Trdelník (chimney cake): another typical local treat, this exquisite cinnamon sugar pastry can be found anywhere in Prague in different, mouthwatering versions.
