Top Ten Things to Do in Prague, Czech Republic

by Carla Pacheco - Prague, 52, Czechia -

Prague has been a political, cultural and economic centre of central Europe with waxing and waning fortunes during its 1,100 year existence. Rooted deeply in Gothic and Renaissance style and culture, the city is home to a number of famous cultural attractions. In 1992, UNESCO named the extensive historic centre of Prague a World Heritage Site. It boasts more than 10 major museums in addition to many, many theatres, galleries, cinemas, and other historical exhibits. A modern public transportation system makes the city very accessible. 

Need any more convincing? 

1. Visit a Jazz Club

Prague boasts a surprisingly vibrant jazz scene. One of the best clubs to check out is AghaRTA - the most popular jazz venue in the downtown area. A fun atmosphere, historic building, friendly drink prices, and a first rate local jazz band show. Need we say more?

2. Go to the Opera.

The historic Estates Theatre currently draws on three artistic ensembles, opera, ballet and drama, both local artists and those from around the world. 

3. Imperial Gardens

Take a stroll around the around the Imperial Garden at the rear of the Prague Castle.

4. Visit the “ Child of Prague” at the Church of Our Lady Victorious in Mala Strana.

5. Take a guided tour of the Jewish quarter including the Old Jewish cemetery.

Go to the Ujezd tram stop at the bottom of the Petřín mountain and ride through the three stations along the funicular railway.
