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.

Day Trip Through the Enchanting Douro Valley

We had a wonderful day trip to the Douro Valley with Helena this October. She picked us up at our hotel and took us out to the Valley. We had a wonderful boat ride, delicious lunch and a great winery tour. Her English was a great and she was very pleasant to talk with. She was very knowlegeable about the area and about Porto. Could not have asked for a better time!

Off the Beaten Track with a Local in Lisbon

Wolfgang ist ein richtiger Glücksgriff! Er ist offen, freundlich, geht auf die Gruppe ein indem er mehrfach fragt, ob man irgendwelche Wünsche hat und was man von Lissabon gerne sehen möchte. Bei der Stadtführung hat Wolfgang uns schöne Orte außerhalb des Tourismus gezeigt und auch einiges dazu erzählt. Wir hatten auf der Tour einen riesen Spaß und eins ist klar, beim nächsten Lissabonbesuch werden wir wieder eine Tour bei ihm buchen! Außerdem hat er uns super Tipps für das Abendprogramm gegeben. Eine Tour bei Wolfgang können wir also nur empfehlen 😊

Prague’s Favorite Food Tour

We wish we’d found this app and Luci at the beginning of our holiday- Luci helped us to navigate the transit system...we stopped at several spots - had beer and pickled sausage with Brie and paprika at one spot- great tastings at a neighbourhood butcher shop- delicious coffee and sweets at a tucked away cafe - split a sandwich and more sweets at another
We really enjoyed and saw how the locals live - highly highly recommend! Luci was great!!
