What to do in Prague. Best things to do in Prague, Czech Republic.
Let us take you during Easter to Prague, the capital of Czech Republic. Spring is one of the most beautiful seasons to go to this beautiful city. So, next time you plan some trip for your Easter vacations remember to visit Prague, it’s worth it.
But before I start, a little background story for those that actually read our blog, not just watch pictures 😀 So, as you will notice on the pictures, there are no kids with us! OH my GOD! What did we do with them? Well, we visited Prague before we had kids 🙂 We were still not engaged, just two best friends in love travelling around Europe. That same year we visited as well Budapest, Serbia, Poland, Austria, Mallorca, and climbed Zugspitze, the highest mountain in Germany (that’s really an achievement coz it’s not the easiest mountain to climb, additionally I am afraid of heights). All those trips made us stronger as a couple and prepared us for many difficulties that would wait for us in the future. Travelling together with your partner builds a special bond, gives experiences, creates memories; you get to know each other better, and you can actually find out if your “love” is just a sexual drive or a connection that makes you a better person and allows to spread your wings. In the past people used many things trying to choose the best partner for the future. There were tests to prove man’s strength of character and elaborate witchcraft to find out if two people are a good match. Well, skip all that, start travelling and you will find out everything you need to know 🙂
And now back to Prague. The best things to do in Prague:
1. Charles Bridge. If you think about Prague, I bet the first thing that comes to your mind is Charles Bridge and the Astronomical Clock. These two tourist attractions are the symbols of the capital of Czech Republic and they are indeed worth their fame. Charles Bridge crosses the Vltava river and connects Prague Castle and the city’s Old Town. The bridge is not just an amazing architectural piece, but as well a place filled with artists, musicians, and painters. During day a lot is going on here, but don’t forget it during night. The night view from the bridge is breathtaking.
2. Prague Astronomical Clock (Prague Orloj) is a medieval astronomical clock located in Prague’s Old Town. It was installed in 1410. It is really beautiful and worth visiting.
3. Old Town and Old Town Square. You will find here cobbled streets and historical buildings such as the Gothic Church of Our Lady before Týn, the Old Town Hall, and Prague Orloj. During Easter there is an Easter market held on the square. At the market you can observe for example a traditional way of decorating Easter eggs.
4. Prague Castle is a castle complex built in the 9th century, that is now the official office of the President of the Czech Republic. It is a very beautiful complex. We didn’t take any tour, neither did we go inside. Nevertheless, it was nice to admire it from the outside. The view of the city from here is amazing.
5. The Lennon Wall (John Lennon Wall) since 1980s has been filled with lyrics from Beatles’ songs and John Lennon-inspired graffiti.
6. Wenceslas Square is one of the main city squares in the New Town of Prague.
7. The Žižkov Television Tower is a unique transmitter tower with crawling baby sculptures on it. The “Miminka” (Babies) were created by the Czech artist David Černý.
8. Dancing House is the Nationale-Nederlanden building on the Rašínovo nábřeží in Prague. It was designed by Vlado Milunić. We don’t find it so spectacular to make a special trip to it, but if it’s on your way, it’s worth visiting.
9. The Petřín Lookout Tower is a steel-framework tower that will remind you of the Eiffel Tower in Paris. It is 63.5 m tall and located on Petřín Hill. It was used as an observation and transmission tower.
10. Prague Zoo. Prague Zoological Garden was opened in 1931. It is quite big and is home to many animal species. Forbes listed it as the seventh best zoo in the world.
11. Stay close to nature and enjoy beautiful spring weather in city parks. Prague’s green spaces are worth to stop at and relax for some time.
12. Rent a boat on the Vltava River. Renting a paddle boat or any other small boat is a great way to admire the beauty of Prague.
13. Evening walk through the Old City and Charles Bridge.
14. Buy the Mole. The Mole (in Czech called Krtek) is a legendary cartoon character created by Czech animator Zdeněk Miler. Krtek is known and loved by many kids in the world, and here is his home land 🙂Feel free to share:
