Explore our tour of Prague.
1. Food & drink
While in Prague, you should definitely try to get a feel for how the locals eat and drink. The Czechs regard their locally produced beers as a national treasure. The most popular beer is Gambrinus. Definitely order a beer and check out the local food. Serious beer drinkers should head to U Medvidku Beer Hall and Restaurant, a 550-year old institution. There, you can try their famous X-Beer 33, with an alcohol content of 11.8%, making it the strongest brew in the Czech Republic.
2. Charles Bridge
While in Prague, you should definitely pay a visit to the city’s most stunning bridge. It spans 16 arches and is lined with 30 Baroque statues of religious figures. Commissioned by King Charles IV in 1357, the bridge’s 1,700 feet of cobblestone are used for wholly temporal purposes. Every afternoon, painters and hot dog vendors fill up the bridge for the tons of tourists who pass through every day. From the bridge, you can see amazing views of the Vltava River.
3. The Museum of Communism
The Museum of Communism is another attraction worth visiting. The Memorial to the victims of communism captures the agony the people went through back in the day with six sculptures of a man in progressive decay. The literal depictions of state-sponsored terrorism told through old photos, videos and propaganda are moving as well. The exhibit ends on a high note, with galleries on the “velvet revolution” that ended the tough communism era.
4. Petrin Hill
Petrin Hill, one of Prague’s greenest spaces, is the perfect place to visit to catch some fresh air and see amazing landscaped gardens. You can also see a miniature version of the Eiffel tower, a mirror maze, and the Church of St. Michael.
5. Prague Castle
Prague Castle, around the size of seven football fields, is the largest ancient castle in the world. It was built and renovated during 13 centuries. It includes churches, gardens, big stained-glass windows, a wooden depiction of the crucifixion and royal residences. It even houses treasures like the tomb of St. John of Nepomuk.
