13 Sep 10 Things To Do In Prague
During our stay in Berlin, everyone asked us where we were headed next. After we told them Prague, all of their responses were always the same -‘Prague is so fun!’ and ‘You’re going to drink a lot!’ And they were right… Even though they didn’t even know that we were staying at a party hostel. Prague likes to drink.
Here are 10 things to do in Prague:
- Museum of Communism: It’s self guided and holds a lot of information. Be prepared for a lot of reading, but it is all so interesting and worth it. Check out their website for more information.
- Kutná Hora: A cute little town about an hour outside or Prague, it is home to the ‘bone cathedral’ – a cathedral that holds thousands of human skeletons. It’s fun to visit if you want to get out of the city, but while there are beautiful cathedrals, there isn’t much else. Also – note that the public transportation to get to this sleepy little town takes forever. It would be best to rent a car or scooters for a day, rather than rely on Uber or the bus (via bus it takes over two hours).
- The Madhouse Prague: If you are looking for a close knit, family vibe from a hostel – this is it. They party 24/7 (literally) and you can always find something to do, as they host daily events and nightly pub crawls. With about forty guests at a time, you are guaranteed to make some new friends.
- Attend an ice hockey game: We went to a preseason game between rivals (Sparta and Slavia) and it was SO MUCH FUN. We each got a beer and sausage for about $5, which is exactly what you want at an ice hockey game. There was a lot of yelling and we didn’t understand anything. It was one of our favorite parts of the week.
- Vzorknova: Also known as the ‘dog bar,’ this is the coolest bar in the world. It’s grungy, it’s huge, underground, has swings, live music, games, places to hide… It’s awesome. If you are ever in Prague, check it out. We went multiple times and couldn’t get over it.
- Cafe Savoy: BEST BREAKFAST. SO GOOD. MUST VISIT. While we only ate breakfast here, I can imagine how amazing their dinners must be (especially since I saw their dinner menu). Check it out. It might be a little more on the pricey side, but WORTH IT.
- The National Theatre: Not only is it a beautiful theatre, it houses ballets, concerts, operas and more. Chloe and I scored cheap nosebleed tickets to the ballet, and it was so much fun to get dressed up.
- Letna Park: Our Airbnb was right next to this park, and it was perfect for running, strolling, and people watching. There is even a bar and a few food stands. One morning it hosted a school event where kids were dressed traditionally, performing Prague’s traditional dance and song. Definitely fun to watch!
- Super Tramp Coffee: Delicious coffee and sweet little treats. It may be difficult to find, but if you wander enough you will come across their cute little courtyard. Check it out!
- Trdelnik: While this is a common pastry in Prague, it’s actually Hungarian – but Prague is famous for them for a reason. You can find this sweet pastry everywhere you look. Have it served plain (sugar), filled with cream, chocolate, ice cream and more… Just don’t think about the calories you are about to intake. It is vacation, after all!
With so many things to do, it will be easy to fill your days in Prague.
Like most cities in Europe (from our experience) you are able to walk around with a drink in hand (no open container law – so fun)! As always, we found the best food and drink when we ventured out of the touristy area. Sidestreets are the da bomb.
