Visit Prague – the Fairytale City

Visit Prague – the Fairytale City

Supersavvyme’s mini travel guide gives you tips for things to do in Prague, with recommendations for where to go sightseeing and shopping.


Fascinating legends, pretty cobbled streets and old city colour all make Prague a charming holiday destination to visit again and again.

When to go
Visit in late spring or summer – Prague gets snow even in October! Prague is particularly busy in summer, but there’s lots to look at and the relaxed atmosphere means you’ll be fine wandering in nothing more fancy than shorts and a T-shirt.

Sightseeing
Prague’s history goes all the way back to the Middle Ages. Travel back in time as you explore the towers, cathedrals and magnificent castle, stroll across Charles Bridge, and don’t miss the hourly chiming of the Old Town Hall’s Astronomical Clock – a lovely mechanical clock that’s over 600 years old!

What to do
It’s easy to explore the sights and galleries by foot, but to get your bearings, hop on a tram. Horse drawn carriages are also really popular and rides start near the Clock Tower. To get the best overview of the city, you can’t beat a trip up to the Tower Park Prague Observatory for 360° views of Prague from morning until midnight.
Prague is also a relaxed short trip for families. The world’s second largest toy museum is located in the back streets by the castle, and close by, in the Troje Region, you’ll find Europe’s largest zoo.

Shopping and dining
For shopping, Prague is a lot more affordable for souvenirs than most European cities, and hand crafted homewares and gifts, from jewellery to wooden toys, are particularly good. The Old Town Square is a great place for dining and shopping, but also head to Staré Město for designer shops, boutique hotels and funky bars. The Malá Strana quarter is a wonderful spot for old-style setting and little cafes. Although many of the best Czech dishes are prepared with beef, pork and game, and accompanied by potatoes and sauce, it’s also worth trying a delicious bowl of traditional onion soup before you come home!
For a special holiday meal, book a table at Kampa Park – a restaurant overlooking the river where even presidents and Hollywood stars have dined on excellent seafood.

Where to stay
Many of the main hotels are located on or near Wenceslas Square but it’s possible to find romantic little retreats among the array of independent innkeepers, so everything from backpacker simplicity to historic luxury is covered – with plenty of modern hotels suitable for all at good mid-price rates somewhere inbetween.
