Only one day in Prague

by SueW1

I will be going to Prague on business in May 2010. I have only one free day. What should I see?

Re: Only one day in Prague

You have enough time to see main attractions. Be prepared that it will be crowded everywhere. Good thing it is everything within walking distance.

Municipal house is an Art Noveau gem. Some parts inside are accesible - take a look, next to it is Powder tower.

Old City square has many interesting buildings. Astronomical clock is interesting, but "show" is not so exciting as huge crowds would imply. You can go up into the tower - part is stairs, last part- elevator.

Charles bridge is a must, some guidebooks can explain more about statues (most are copies) and bridge history. Nearby is Bridge museum with explanations how it was built. Tower at "Mala Strana" end has also interesting exposition about bridge, floods and damage to the bridge, great view to the bridge too (you can se that it is curved).

In the Castle most interesting is the Cathedral, but there are also several museums, art galeries if you are intersted in paintings. If you go to the Castle gardens you will have great views to the old city.

I would recommend to buy some guidebook before going to Prague so you already know what it is most ineteresting to you.

The city is relatively compact so bring a comfy pair of shoes and you'll be good to go! I'd recommed the old town (part of the fun is wandering round the streets & getting lost), Charles Bridge (try to go early or late as it can be manic with crowds of tourists at times) and the castle - even if you don't go into the castle the view of Prague is pretty good. There's also a tower (can't remember it's name) over the same side of the city as the castle which gives even better views of the city. Happy travels :)

Travel Tips for Prague

Walk slow

by scubaphoto

Take your time walking along the bridge as it offer you good views of the city and the bridge itself is adorned with little statues that are wonderful and worth inspecting more closely. There are also lots of artists looking for your business and some good and not so good painting on offer.

Visit the old marketplace

by Luchonda

This market is a must - sit down and enjoy ! Enjoy looking at the buildings, the people walking by. Especially during X-mas time, there is lot to see, eat and drink A golden city to be revisited many times. In my opinion a top City in Europe, next to Berlin and Barcelona

Touching St John of Nepomuk, Charles bridge

by extrajoce

Both in 1995 and this time in December 2002, I couldn't help but notice the Czechs stopping by to touch this bronze at the foot of one of the statues on Charles Bridge. They definitely look very superstitious, as one can tell by the erosion that took place in just 7 years! (see my www.extrajoce.com to compare).
So if you like this kind of city lucky charm, check out the north-western part of the bridge - you can't miss it.

Aerial Water Closet ( 3 photos)

by nicolaitan

This zany sculpture of a forest of bathroom appliances is located on a pedestrianized section of the Inner Ring Road. The creator is Dennis Oppenheim, a 68 year old American recognized as one of the world's great conceptual artists and one of several credited with moving art off the wall and out into the world. Prominent since the 1960's, his work has been exhibited at the Centre Pompidou, the Tate Gallery, and the Museum of Modern Art. He specializes in quirky mechanical pieces.

The Aerial Water Closet is a star in Prague's Grand Sculpture 2006.

Location --- Na Prikope' at the intersection with Panska' north of Mustek Metro Station.

Just across the Karl Bridge...

by Martin_S.

Just across the Karl Bridge from Old Town you will find the St. Mikulas Church. For a small price you can climb the bell tower and there is a 360 view from there at about 5 or 6 stories height. The view is worth the climb.
