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.

Parisian Kickstart Tour with a Local

My Mom and I arrived in Paris, napped because of bad jet lag, and then woke up worried we wasted the day away. Luckily, I was able to find this company and book a tour at a time of our choice just a few hours away. It turned out to be one of the best nights in Paris. It was great walking around at night, seeing all the buildings lit up. We loved stopping for eclairs and macaroons as little breaks during our tour. Emma was a wealth of knowledge, pointing out parts of the city we wouldn't have noticed ourselves and giving us great background. She was able to accommodate the tour to us. When she saw there was absolutely no line to Notre Dame, she took advantage of it and took us on a tour inside. I am so glad we chose to do this private tour as a great introduction to Paris.

Galle Day Trip: an Exotic Escape!

We met our guide outside of Kingsbury Hotel. We were delayed, he at time. We like!
We drove in a comfortable car through town and we got a slightly idea of the size of the town and how crowdy the town is.
We also pass the impressing new parliament building placed in a lake.
On our way to Galle we asked about Sri Lanka and how it is to live here, about education and health systems and Samir had good answers on all our questions. We learned a lot and want to visit your beautiful country again.
We were taken for a boat ride on a lake with mangrove trees, boards and animals, a temple and fish spa, all of this are new experiments. The boat guide was awesome and spotted animals from long distance.
We had tasty and good local lunch at Rampart Hotel. Caused by heavy rain we chosed to skip the rest of the program for our tour. Samir was creative and replaced it with a visit the Marine Museum in Galle and a walk on the fortress wall.
Samir is a service minded, polite and skilled guide, he made our tour fun and learning.
We will choose to engage him for another tour if we come back sometime. And we will recommend him for sure.

Annbjørg Sommersæter and Svein Gihle Karlsen
