Recently I had the pleasure of being able to visit Prague! To be honest, I wasn’t really sure what to expect, as it was the first time I’d travelled that far East in Europe. It ended up being one of my favourite places that I’ve ever visited. It’s so different and so lively, and if you have the chance to visit please go! I’d definitely recommend it. I wanted to compile a list of things to do in Prague that I think are unmissable. If you’re travelling in Europe and you need more travel inspo, make sure to check out my other travel posts!
Fill out this SURVEY and let me know what content you’d like to see on the blog! I’d really appreciate it!
Walk up to Prague Castle
Okay, prepare yourself for one heck of an uphill climb. The walk up to Prague Castle is steep, but there’s a definite payoff for your effort. The view from atop the hill is absolutely beautiful, and in my opinion, the walk is worth it for the panorama of the city. Once you’re up there, you can explore parts of the castle for free (there are other parts that you have to pay for, but we didn’t bother with that) and the church that’s there is stunning. I’ve seen quite a few churches in my travels, but the thing that really stood out to me in this one was the stained glass. The colours were so vivid, and the style really impressed me.
Eat at U Medvídků
One of the most fun things to do in Prague: eat. If you’re going to be eating somewhere, have at least one of your meals at U Medvídků. They have cheap drinks (although Prague as a rule has cheap drinks in general) and delicious food. A lot of their fare is beer themed (they’re also a brewery) but they have delicious traditional Czech food as well as just simple home cooked dishes. I would highly recommend checking this place out if you’re in Prague!
Go up the tower in the main square
In the main town square, there is a tower you can go up in an elevator inside of the Old Town Hall. If you want a really beautiful view of the inner city, this is a perfect way to see it. The photos you can get are stunning. I will warn you, it can get squishy up there with tourists, but it doesn’t take long to see what you want to see and then go back down.
While you’re in the Old Town Square, check out the Trdelniks. They’re basically churro cones, and they’re absolutely everywhere in Prague. They’re also massive, so make sure you have an appetite for dessert. The old town square is definitely one of the things to do in Prague that you can’t miss.
Grab some gelato at Angelato
I know what you’re thinking: “Miranda, gelato in Prague, really?” and my answer is yes. Gelato anywhere is a good idea in my books. They really do a good job on their gelato, too. Make sure to go early enough to get some, because flavours sell out later in the day. So basically, if you want to get some good gelato, and you want some delicious cool flavours, check out Angelato.
Walk along the old bridge
There’s a really old bridge across the water in Prague, and it has tons of statues all along it. It’s neat to walk across because there’s really nice photo opportunities, street vendors, and musicians. It’s just a fun part of town. You’re going to want to get across the water at some point, so choose this bridge at least once over the other. The ends of the bridge are marked by large towers and stone archways, so they’re hard to miss!
All in all, Prague was really fun. It’s a very youthful city (probably something to do with how cheap it is) and you’ll see lots of bachelor and bachelorette parties if you’re there on the weekend. There are so many things to do in Prague, so check out some of these places and let me know where you’re going to go!
