What makes Prague so special?

Prague is one of the most visited cities in the world and not without reason: Prague is one of the cities that remained relatively unscathed during the Second World War. The entire historic Old Town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and offers a multitude of Baroque, Renaissance and Gothic sights. Most of the sights are within easy walking distance and can be wonderfully combined on a city walk.

Spring or autumn are the best times to discover Prague. Since most tourists come to Prague in the summer months, it is not as crowded at these times of year. In addition, the hot temperatures can make sightseeing in summer exhausting.

With a direct flight to Prague, you can quickly arrive in the Czech capital. Read here which sights you should not miss and what you should bear in mind when flying to Prague.

Old bridges and castles, churches and lookout towers: the most important sights

The two most famous sights that should not be missed during a visit to Prague are the Charles Bridge and the Castle. As Prague’s oldest bridge, Charles Bridge connects the so-called Lesser Town with the Old Town and offers a magnificent view of the Vltava River. Tip: For the best photos, it’s worth taking a walk across the Charles Bridge at sunrise. Later in the day it can get quite crowded there.

As the largest enclosed castle area in Europe, the castle is enthroned on a 70-metre-high hill. Visit the largest church in the Czech Republic, St Vitus Cathedral, and enjoy the view from the bell tower. There is also the Old Royal Palace, Franz Kafka’s home and St George’s Basilica to discover here.

In the historic Old Town, the Old Town Square is the most important square. Admire the beautiful house facades and visit the magnificent Town Hall and the Teyn Church. The viewing platform in the Town Hall tower offers a great view over the city. At the town hall is another sight, the astronomical clock. A very special spectacle takes place there every hour on the hour.

The Jewish Centre is located in the northern part of the Old Town. During an exciting guided tour you will learn more about the cemetery, the many synagogues and the Jewish history in Prague.

A relaxing break from sightseeing

Change your perspective and admire the city from the water. You can take boat trips on the Vltava or explore the waterscape yourself by pedalo.

The Petřín Hill is a great place for a walk in the countryside or just to linger. Once at the top, you can enjoy a magnificent view over the city from the Petřín Tower, which is especially special at sunset.

If you get hungry from the exciting sightseeing, you can rest in the numerous restaurants or coffee houses. Be sure to try the sweet speciality trdelník. Prague is also famous for its beer, which is the Czech national drink and has a long tradition.
