Visit Prague & let the fairytale begin...

Found this guide helpful

Prague is one of the most romantic places I've ever visited. But that's not just it. Whether you're a couple, a family or a bunch of friends, you can have an excellent time in the capital of the Czech Republic. Check my recommendations and enjoy the museums, the food and the nightlife of Prague. However, the biggest attraction of all remains the city itself.

Globelle81's City Tips

  • Prefer to walk around the city instead of using the public transportation - the streets of Prague have some of the most beautiful neighborhoods you'll ever see.
  • If you visit Prague during winter time, make sure you get really warm clothes and shoes with you!

    We came across this sculpture by accident, while walking around the neighborhood of Malá Strana ("Little Quarter") after breakfast. In times like these and with history's tendancy to repeat itself, seeing such a powerful description of what the wrong use of politics can cause to the humankind had a big impact to my soul at that moment. I found myself staring at these "shadows" without saying anything for quite a few minutes. A strong image that I will not - and do not want to ever - forget.

    If you enjoy escaping from the big tourist spots from times to times in order to experience the local way of living, then, as far as Prague is concerned, this is definitely the place to visit. Leave the big classic cafés for a while. "Café Lounge" with the excellent ambiance and service and the classy local clients is a great place to start your day!

    There's a good reason why the cathedral of St. Nicholas is one of the most famous sights in Prague. Whether you're a religious person or not, this church will definitely impress you with the majesty and luxury of the statues and murals that decorate it.

    You cannot say that you have visited Prague if you do not visit Charles Bridge! Each step that you will take crossing the bridge will be a step back in history. Take some time to notice the magnificent statues that stand across the bridge and you will realize the greatness of the place. And of course, the view of Prague from the bridge is breathtaking!

    Once you start wandering around Prague, you will simply find yourself at the Old Town Square at some point. You will realize it quite soon, as it is one of the busiest areas of the city, visited by many (or better all) tourists, with the Astronomical Clock and the many shops, cafés, pubs and restaurants being the main reason of it.

    If you're a romantic and artistic soul, you will fall in love with this café. Or if you're a writer experiencing writer's block, this is the place to gain your inspiration back. At least that's how I felt and I'm not even an actual writer! It's as if time never touched this place. Go up the stairs of this lovely building and get ready for a trip back in the early 1900's.

    For the history lovers, this is a place that gives a lot of information about the destructive impact of WWII on the Jewish community of Prague. A pretty known fact someone might say, however there are details concerning mostly the efforts of the Jewish community to preserve their identity despite the atrocities they faced that I found quite impressive. Also, you will have the chance to learn things about their culture, customs and every day life.

    Walking the streets of Prague is a great experience in itself. However, you really need to climb one of the many towers of the city to admire its spectacular view. We chose the Henry's Bell Tower and we did not regret it. You will get a 360° view of almost everything that this city has to offer. Make sure you get the elevator to get on top and then walk all the way down to discover what's hiding in the small rooms of the tower.

    When in ... Prague, do as the Czechs do! Lokal is actually a chain of restaurants around Prague. It is visited mostly by locals and it offers typical Czech food and of course, Czech beer! Nothing fancy, just the simple local way and at very good prices.

    • Try rakvička (which by the way means "little coffin"!), a traditional Czech biscuit, classic example of the simplicity already mentioned above!

    One of the first things that come to mind when we say Prague is definitely BEER! And the Prague Beer Museum is the best place to taste as many beers as possible and at a very reasonable price. Yes, it is not an actual museum but a local pub, visited mostly by young people. Order a burger, ask the waiters to help you choose among the big variety of beers offered in the menu and let the beer tasting begin!
