Top Things To Do in Prague, Czech Republic (DIY)

Posted on Posted in Czech Republic, Europe

Prague is the capital city of Czech Republic and is famous for well preserved architectures and is considered as one of the most visited cities in Europe.

I have visited this lovely city once and I found it relatively cheap and very accessible. You can literally visit all famous tourist spots in just 2 days.

TOP THINGS TO DO

1. BE AMAZED BY THE PRAGUE CASTLE

Prague Castle is a castle complex in Prague, Czech Republic, built in the 9th century. It is the official office of the President of the Czech Republic. The castle was a seat of power for kings of Bohemia, Holy Roman emperors, and presidents of Czechoslovakia.

2. DROP BY THE PRAGUE ZOOLOGICAL GARDEN

Prague Zoological Garden is a zoo in Prague, Czech Republic. It was opened in 1931 with the goal to “advance the study of zoology, protect wildlife, and educate the public” in the district of Troja in the north of Prague. It is one of the best Zoos in the world and home to 5000 animals.

3. CLIMB UP THE CHARLES BRIDGE VIEWING TOWER

Old Town Bridge Tower is a gothic monument located in Prague, Czech Republic. Its construction began in 1357 AD, during the rule of the Emperor Charles IV. It was designed by the architect Petr Parléř. For just 100 CZK (about £3.70) you can climb to the top of Old Town Bridge tower to see a beautiful view of Charles Bridge. 

4. CHECK OUT THE COLLOREDO-MANSFIELD PALACE

Colloredo-Mansfeld Palace is one of the most outstanding examples of palace architecture in Prague. The Baroque building, located at one of the most frequented sites of old Prague − next to Charles Bridge – grew on the foundations of a Romanesque and Gothic built-up area and a Renaissance house.

5. EXPLORE THE OLD TOWN SQUARE

Old Town Square, in Czech known as Staroměstské náměstí, is the central square of the historic part of Prague. The square is one of the greatest tourist attractions of the Czech capital, along with Charles Bridge and Prague Castle. It is almost impossible to miss it if you’re coming to Prague as a tourist.

6. SEE PRAGUE FROM ZIZKOV TELEVISION TOWER

The Žižkov television tower pierces over 700 feet into the air above the winding and charming streets of Prague. It is oddly phallic and looks something like a NASA project placed arbitrarily on the outskirts of Central Europe’s most treasured city. It was once considered one of the ugliest buildings in the world, and now holds the distinction of being one of the weirdest.

WHERE TO STAY

I stayed in Hostel Franz Kafka It is located near the Old Town Square and just next to the Metro Train Station and just opposite KFC. The place is ideal for people who don’t like the noise of late night pubs and wants to relax after a long day of exploring. There are loads of coffee shops nearby.
