Prague Cathedral

The cathedral in Prague is a must among the top things to do in Prague, even for those who aren’t so fond of religious buildings. This church is something special and is the largest and most important church in the whole city.

The church has stunning architecture and a fascinating history. If you want, you can go further into the church and see the tombs and go down into the crypt to see the remains of provincial patron saints, princes, noblemen, and archbishops.

Prague Castle

The castle of Prague is the city’s main attraction and also the world’s largest palace. In the area around the castle, you can have a look at beautiful architecture, parks, and wander around narrow cobbled streets.

When you’ve reached the top of the castle, you can enjoy stunning views of Prague. If you’ve planned on walking up to the castle, then we recommend bringing a pair of comfortable shoes and a bottle of water.

Charles Bridge

A trip to Prague is not complete without having seen the famous Charles Bridge. The bridge is very cool with its several detailed statues, and it also has a fascinating history.

The bridge is beautiful to see both in the mornings, in the middle of the day and also during the evenings, but we recommend to go here a little earlier or later during the day when there are fewer people walking over the bridge.

Around the Charles Bridge, one will also find a couple of restaurants, street performers, and market stalls!
