Hlavni Mesto Praha Things to Do

  • Charles Bridge

    Prague Things to Do

    I believe this is one of the "must see" tourist attractions in Prague, the Charles Bridge. Not quite like a circus but it is busy, crowded and touristy. Lots of souvenirs for sale and street performers trying their best to sell CD's and make their tips. The bridge tower is impressive. The views from the bridge are great! It crosses the Vltava...

  • St Vitus's Cathedral

    Prague Things to Do

    I was so depressed after arriving from Vienna to Prague, the weather conditions in Vienna were perfect while in Prague it was gloomy and rainy. Instead of staying 4 days, as planned, I had to shorten my stay and left home after only two days because no improvement of weather conditions could have been expected. Anyway, it wasn't my first visit to...

  • Wenceslas Square

    Prague Things to Do

    Wenceslas square is more an avenue than a square. Lined with shops and hotels, it is the centre of nightlife (if you're male be prepared to meet "quick friends" in the square). Behind king Wenceslas statue stands the monumental National Museum.

  • Torture Museum

    Prague Things to Do

    At first I was hesitant to go in due to the price,but...it was well worth the admission. I'm not sure if I just started to notice this, but it seems that now more and more European cities are opening their own version of a medieval torture museum. Maybe coming clean about their own pasts? Perhaps letting people realize just how lucky they are not...

    If you are in Prague Square, you will not miss seeing this magnificent church. Gothic in style. At night it is wonderfully lit up.

  • Castle Guard

    Prague Things to Do

    If you wish to see the Changing of the Guard, I suggest you come a little early to find a good spot to watch. Quite a lot of people come to see this parade.

    Prague Things to Do

    A total contrast from its environs. I was walking getting lost near karlovo namesti until I reached the river front and accidentally this building caught my attention - no idea that it's an attraction nor it's name. It's indeed the building of one of Netherlands' big insurance company called Nationale-Nederlanden - also the name of the building...

    I actually came across the Kampa Museum when trying to find a toilet. The Museum had toilets, but only for Museum patrons. The Museum displays modern art, which isn't a favorite of mine, I chose not to go in. Instead I looked at the few statues in the courtyard and on the outside of the building. I found three huge babies which seemed very...

  • Vysehrad

    Prague Things to Do

    Of the many churches in Prague, the Church of Sts Peter and Paul in Vysehrad is easily my favourite and tops my list of crowd-dodging options in Prague! I find it surprising how little is written about it - and indeed the whole of enchanting Vysehrad - which make it one of those less visited gems that so excite me, especially in a city that...

    I am a fan of Salvador Dali's work. In fact we own some of the Dante's Divine Comedy Canto prints and a signed Dali lithograph. So, visiting the exhibit was fantastic! I saw additional works by Dali I was not familiar with. I'm not sure this is a permanent exhibit but I believe it's been here for a long while. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The docents...

    Irish brides traditionally placed a statue of the Infant of Prague outside the door on the eve of their wedding to ensure good weather.

  • State Opera

    Prague Things to Do

    The State Opera in Prague has the most dreadful location of any opera house I can think of. The front entrance is cut off from the city by a high-speed four-lane motorway called Wilsonova with no pedestrian crossing, just a dank narrow tunnel that looks like the perfect place for a mugging. At the back is another four-lane motorway called...

    Prague Things to Do

    Castle Square is surrounded by many Palaces! The square is infront of Prague Castle, so I had to walk through it to reach the Castle. The difference between myself and most people who come here, is they are in such a rush to see Prague Castle, that they hardly bother to glance at the surroundings! It is in this square where I found a variety of...

    For only 10 euros, it's good for a laugh. Takes about 20-30 minutes to peruse everything, sex toys from antiquity and some you have to see to believe.

Easy to find,...

Since 2000, the 10 giant babies climbing the tower have been seen by people around the world. Made from fiberglass, the babies were...
