Sightseeing spots in Prague

Famously called "Jewel of the Crown" among central European countries, as well as one of the most stunning cities in the world, there is a bunch of sightseeing in Prague. There’s something for everyone in this magical city, so you don’t want to miss any of the many highlights!

If you’re looking for sightseeing in Prague from above — then Hradcany, near Prague castle is the best place to start. You can capture the Vltava River and its bridges and a panoramic view across the ancient red rooftops. You can get there by taking tram 12,20,22,57, and getting off at Malostranské náměstí. Then just a short 10 minutes’ walk uphill!

If your idea of sightseeing in Prague is all about architecture — then go no further than the Old Town Square itself. Most of the buildings date back to medieval times and even earlier. The astronomical clock — is one of the most recognizable landmarks (in a place full of memorable landmarks!) If you’re after photos of the city, this is a can't-miss site.
After great Old Town Square cinematic photos? Then a handy hint is — go early and avoid heavy foot traffic during the daylight hours, or take some photos at night; there’s guaranteed to be a magical air absence from daylight.

The Old Town Hall tower provides the must-see view across Old Town Square. There’s an elevator so you don’t have to deal with the climb, but be prepared for it to be busy. Prague is always busy! The outlook though can be like a fairy-tale — especially at night or in snow. Even if you don’t want a photo, just go, and breathe in the majesty!

Letna park has a lovely view of the city and its bridges. It’s just a few minutes from Prague castle and you get to see most of the historical city center from here. The park’s a relaxed place to hang out in summer too. You get to the park via tram 5,12,18, 20, 57, and the nearest stop is Chotkovy sady.

If you’re after something artsier, then why not follow in the footsteps of the famous Czech artist and photographer Jan Saudek, who framed some of his classic compositions under and around the Charles Bridge. You’ll find that one of the best places for sightseeing in Prague and taking pictures of Charles Bridge is under it. From some spots you’ll also be able to catch one of the bridge towers or Prague castle in the background. The beautiful Gothic structure of Charles Bridge is by day a home to various artists and musicians. It transforms into a dreamlike atmosphere at night, offering views of the fairytale Prague Castle over the shimmering waters of the Vltava River. You get there by taking metro or tram 5,12,18,20 or 22, and the nearest stop is Malostranska. Then a short walk away is the bridge.

For a modern experience amongst historic architecture visit the Dancing House — its rooftop restaurant offers a stunning place for sightseeing in Prague, with fantastic views of the river and the city. The glass and steel structure with its daring curvy outline dominates the banks of Vltava River. A most original piece of modern architecture, this was nicknamed after the famous dancers Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire.

Dubai by Night Tour: A Magical Experience

Excelente primera toma de contacto con la asombrosa ciudad de Dubai. Athina es una persona muy agradable y simpática. Nos mostró los mejores rincones para disfrutar de la noche dubaití, y nos situó perfectamente para poder continuar nuestra estancia mucho mejor ubicados. El tour se inicia en la Opera de Dubai para poder disfrutar del espectáculo de las fuentes en el Dubai Mall. Proseguimos a la Marina de Dubai donde disfrutamos de un fantástico paseo junto a este lago rodeado de rascacielos y lleno de actividad nocturna. Gracias Athina por una noche para el recuerdo. Thanks Athina for this memorable night tour!

Private Colosseum & Roman Forum Skip the Line Tour

Matteo's enthusiasm bubbled over as he guided us through his beloved city. He knew about every little rock in the Colisseum. He brought not just knowledge but a point of view to the tour. He pointed out things we would NEVER have seen or noticed on our own. The tour flew by. He loves his city and he loves what he does. I cannot recommend him enough. Our group was 2 adults and 3 teenage girls, age 17-19. They loved it too. He showed up right on time, he was very attentive to our needs and he was a lot of fun.
