Where To Stay In Prague
1. Charles Bridge
Charles Bridge is one of the most visited sights in Prague, crossing the Vltava river.
Throughout the day there are small pop ups stalls scattered across the cobble stone walk way selling anything from jewellery to paintings. You can get your portrait done whilst listening the the old jazz band playing right next to you.
There is a tower standing on each end of the bridge. They can both be climbed for a view of Prague bridge from above.
If you’re heading to Charles bridge for the almighty photo, the best time to visit is definitely sunrise. Although it’s NEVER completely empty. But you’ll find a spot with not so many people.
2. Visit The Swans
The ‘swan spot’ has become pretty famous over the last couple of years, especially on Instagram.
This quiet little part of Prague is also perfect for wedding shoots and any kind of professional photography.
With Charles Bridge as the backdrop and swans floating around the area, it’s a photographers heaven.

3. John Lennon Wall
The John Lennon Wall, which was once a normal wall but since the 1980’s, has been filled with lyrics and graffiti inspired by the man himself.
The wall represents peace and love in the form of poems and flowers and many other unique paintings.
The wall was first decorated after the 1980 assassination of John Lennon when an unknown artist painted a single image of the singer-songwriter and some lyrics.
So although John Lennon hasn’t actually visited in person, it still remains one of the top fun things to do in Prague.
The wall changes very frequently and the original portrait of John Lennon has long gone under new and old layers of colourful paint.
4. Prague Castle
The Prague Castle is a very important symbol to the city.
We didn’t have time to visit on our first trip but we can imagine it’s like something from a fairytale.
It was founded in the 9th century and became the seat of Czech rulers and later presidents.
Prague Castle is made up of historical palaces, offices and gardens, making it one of the largest complexes in the world. Covering a total of over 45 hectares.
5. Sex Machine Museum
This museum is situated right in the city centre of Prague and was the first museum in the world dedicated to sex gadgets.
Holding a huge collection of bedroom devices, this museum has become somewhat interesting for the public and is now one of the top fun things to do in Prague.
6. Old Town Square – Church Of Our Lady Before Tyn
The Church Of Our Lady Before Tyn, situated in the Old Town Square, is definitely worth a visit.
Not only is it a picturesque photo location but it also holds a lot of interesting history behind it.
It’s twin gothic spires make the church visible from all over the city of Prague and it’s a landmark that’s hard to miss when exploring the cobble stone streets of the Old Czech Town.
7. Try Trdelnik
Trdelnik is the most traditional thing to eat when visiting Prague and is the most common pastry you’ll find on the streets.
Although supposedly it doesn’t come from Czech Republic originally, Hungarians will say it’s their sweet dish, it has certainly been adapted into the culture. With a Trdelnik shop to be seen on nearly every street corner.
They can be found in every tourist area in Prague priced at around 120 Crowns each. Depending on toppings.
8. The Dancing House
The Dancing House in Prague is a really interesting building and it’s location is what really makes this modern, unique design stand out. It’s surrounded by historic architecture and situated right by the Vltava River.
The Dancing House has a restaurant on the top floor and is the only part of this structure that is open to the public. The rest are used as office spaces.
The Ginger & Fred Restaurant upstairs has an international menu complimented by panoramic views over the beautiful city of Prague.
