Welcome to Prague
More than 25 years after the Velvet Revolution drew back the curtain on this intoxicating maze of winding cobblestone alleyways, the ‘city of a hundred spires’ thrills visitors with dramatic Gothic architecture, down-to-earth pubs, fin de siècle cafes, cutting-edge art and the majestic Prague Castle, the world's largest, looming high over the Czech capital.

Prague Day Planner

Short on time? We’ve arranged Prague’s must-sees into these day-by-day itineraries to make sure you see the best of the city in the time you have available.

Day One
M Just one day in Prague? Focus on major sights. Start early, joining the crowd below the Astronomical Clock for the hourly chiming, then wander through the Old Town Square , taking in the spectacular array of architectural styles and the spires of the Church of Our Lady Before Týn . Stop for coffee and a bite at charming Bakeshop Praha before a short stroll through Josefov , the former Jewish ghetto. You won't have time to see the Prague Jewish Museum , but a walk will give you a feel for the place.
R Amble through the winding alleys of the Old Town on your way to one of Prague’s most famous landmarks, Charles Bridge . While crossing the statue-bedecked bridge, stop to take photos of the Vltava River, with magnificent Prague Castle rising high over the historical cityscape. Hike up to the castle along Nerudova through Malá Strana and spend the afternoon visiting St Vitus Cathedral and the castle’s gardens.
N For dinner, treat yourself to a meal with a view at Villa Richter , just near the castle, or walk back down to Malá Strana for upscale Czech food at Augustine .

Day Two
M Spend the morning exploring the quaint backstreets and Kampa gardens of Malá Strana, one of the city’s oldest districts. Catch the Petřín Funicular to enjoy sweeping views from the Lookout Tower at the top of Petřín. From here, find the serene path that crosses over to the Strahov Monastery , and then head downhill along Nerudova , stopping into elegant Wallenstein Garden at the bottom. Laugh at the Proudy sculpture before treating yourself to a late lunch at the lovely riverside restaurant Hergetova Cihelná .
R Cross the river via Mánes Bridge. In the afternoon, check out the famous synagogues of the Jewish Museum , and then take a break with coffee and cake on the balcony of the striking, cubist Grand Cafe Orient .
N Stop by the box office of the National Theatre to see if any last-minute tickets are available to the opera or ballet. Before the show, have a light meal at Cafe Louvre . Afterwards, go for a classy nightcap at Hemingway Bar or Tretter's New York Bar .

Day Three
M Start with coffee at the famous Kavárna Slavia , choosing a table at the front looking across the river to Prague Castle. Amble over to Slav Island and rent a paddleboat to splash about in the river before heading south to see the Dancing House . From here, walk back up Národní třída to Wenceslas Square , taking time to see the nearby sights, including the National Museum , the Jan Palach Memorial and St Wenceslas Statue . Plan lunch at Room , for tapas, or Jáma , for beer and burgers.
R From here it's an easy metro jaunt to Vyšehrad and the Vyšehrad Citadel , where you can wander around the ruins and visit the graves of Dvořak and Mucha in the cemetery , as well as admiring the views of the Vltava and Prague Castle.
N Head back toward town and spend the evening in Vinohrady and Žižkov, choosing one of the area's excellent restaurants, like Aromi or Kofein – or simply go for a beer at the Riegrovy Sady Beer Garden .

Day Four
M It's time to see a different part of Prague. Start on Old Town Sq and walk down elegant Pařížská , before crossing Čech Bridge (Čechův most) and making the climb to Letná Gardens . Admire the views from the top, and then make your way east to the Letná Beer Garden – if it's too early for beer, make a note to come back.
R It's a short walk to the National Technical Museum – perfect if you've got kids. Have lunch at Kumbal , then visit Prague's best (and most underrated) art museum, Veletržní Palác . If you've still got some energy (and daylight), stroll through Stromovka Park and enjoy Prague's prettiest piece of green.
N Head back towards the Letná beer garden to relax with a half-litre or two, then make your way back down towards town. Enjoy a meal at high-end Kalina , then go for jazz at a nearby club like Reduta or the AghaRTA Jazz Centrum . For a quieter option, head for the rooftop terrace U Prince to lift a glass to this lovely city on your last night in the Czech capital.
