Prague is not that big so the airport is also smaller. We had to connect to get to Prague from Florence and ended up missing our connection so got to Prague a day later than originally planned.
There is a metro, but it is a very walkable city. You definitely need to be careful with taxis as they are known for scamming people. To get to the airport, I would recommend calling ahead
Try to stay near the Old Town area
There are 4 “quarters” so here are the quarters broken down with sites inside:
We didn’t go inside, not even sure if you can or not. But we just saw it from the outside in Old Town Square where you can’t miss it
Can watch at hour but not very cool, just cool to see game tower. We climbed it for a great view!
Connects old town to little quarter
Big shopping area
Separates old town and new town
Just area to walk around
You can go inside for free. Can’t walk all the way around for free, but can get an idea about it
Smaller than most people expect, but still so cool and colorful. Always changing!
I didn’t get a chance to this but you can hike up the hill and go by the mini Czech tower for a great view.
Buy a Tredelnik!! It’s a delicious Czech snack. They are everywhere, especially in old town. It’s a cinnamon sugar dough dessert
5 story club – honestly was a bit odd and had a weird vibe. The ice bar was cool because I’d never been in one, but I feel like it could be cooler somewhere else
Didn’t get a chance to do this either since our flights there got screwed up and we had to stay over after missing our connection but everyone says these are fun in Prague!
I would make reservations at popular places. We had a few we wanted to try and didn’t get to.
Spot for brunch (needed a reservation)
Dinner spot (needed a reservation)
Some people do a cruise on the water but we did not have good weather for this. We really enjoyed just walking around the city. There’s also the Prague beer museum that has little beer tastings but we didn’t end up doing that either. As a whole, there are lots of museums like a chocolate museum, a communist museum, a sex museum, and so on.
You only need 1.5-2 days, it’s a really small city, but definitely a great place to check out!
Careful with tipping, they’ll try to take advantage of you as an American because they know you usually tip and will sometimes try to force it on you
They are not on the Euro and instead on the Kroner. I would recommend taking out some cash as many places prefer cash.
