If you are looking for some great Prague Travel Tips then you are on the right site. From my point of view, Prague is one of the world’s most romantic places. Prague is not too big so I would recommend to spend 3 – 4 days here.

What is the best time to visit Prague?

Prague can be an ideal vacation destination almost anytime of year. The most popular time to visit is in the summer, when the weather is warm, albeit a little damp, and many musical events take place. The least popular time to go is during the much colder winter, except for the Christmas season when many couples and holiday-goers enjoy the snow-covered city and festive events. Spring and fall are pleasant times to visit as there are fewer crowds and the weather is decent.

Prague travel tips

I would recommend are Lesser Town, Prague Castle, Charles Bridge, Old Town and certainly Kampa Island. However there are still so many other places to see…

1. Lesser Town

Lesser Town Square – Started as a market place it has always been the centre of life in the Lesser Town. Today, there are official buildings and restaurants. The important buildings include the St Nicholas Church, the Town Hall, the Sternberg Palace, the Smi?ický Palace. On the facade of the Baroque Kaiserstain Palace there is a bust of the great Czech soprano Emma Destinn who lived there between 1908 and 1914.

2. Prague Castle

Prague Castle is the most stunning castle complex in the Czech Republic. It is situated in the very heart of the capital city of Prague. Prague Castle is a textbook of architectural styles, the burial site of Bohemian princes and kings and, last but not least, the residence of the President’s Office. Founded by Prince Bo?ivoj around 880, it has been a seat of princes and kings for more than 11 centuries – and of presidents since 1918. The oldest part preserved is the Romanesque Basilica of St. George from 921. Nonetheless, it was the Gothic style that shaped the castle in the main. When visiting the place, you must not forget to see the monumental St. Vitus Cathedral, the Old Royal Palace including the Vladislav Hall and the northern three-towered bulwark. Furthermore, remember to visit the Golden Lane and take a walk in the Royal Gardens.

3. Charles Bridge

Named after the Emperor Charles IV in 19th century the Charles Bridge is Prague’s most familiar monument. Designed by Petr Parler, it was completed in 1400 and it connects the Lesser Town with the Old Town. Although it is now pedestrianised, it withstood wheeled traffic for 600 years. There are thirty statues on the bridge, many of them have been replaced with copies. Originals are kept in the Lapidarium of the National Museum and at VyÅ¡ehrad. The magnificent Gothic Old Town Bridge Tower was designed by Petr Parler and built at the end of the 14th century. It is considered the finest Gothic tower in central Europe, mainly for its decoration. There are marvellous views of the Vltava river Valley, the Žofín, St?elecký Island, the Old Town and the Lesser Town.

4. Kampa Island

Known as the Venice of Prague, Kampa Island has been formed by a branch of the Vltava called the Devil’s Stream (?ertovka). Originally there were only gardens on the island but it was also used for washing clothes and bleaching linen. In the 17th century the island became well known for its pottery markets. Today it is an elegant part of Prague with a village-like character.

5. Old Town

Mentioned in 1091, it is the oldest of the towns of Prague gained the privileges of a town in the 13th century. However, its name dates back to the 14th century when the New Town was founded. The centre of the Old Town has always been the Old Town Square dominated by the Church of Our Lady of Týn and the Town Hall.
