2 Days in Prague

After exploring the beautiful city over three fantastic days, here is my ideal itinerary for two full days in Praha, Czech Republic!

Day one:

Prague Castle

Located in the Castle district above Charles Bridge lies the glorious Prague Castle. Head up early morning for breathtaking views over countless rooftops and to miss the crowds.

St Nicholas Church Area

After the short hike up to Prague Castle, you will need a break. The St Nicholas Church area is home to many luxury boutique hotels, including my favourite, the Aria and has an abundance of cool bars and restaurants. The area is a great place to unwind and walk through a maze of cobbled streets.

Vrtba Gardens

In the St Nicholas Church area, this garden is UNESCO listed and absolutely beautiful. Another great secret spot for photos and has beautiful views from the tower.

Charles Bridge

The Charles Bridge is probably the most famous icon in Prague. The grand walking bridge is dotted with buskers, statues and artists, so it is really entertaining to stroll down. Keep bags by your side as pick pockets are common and the area is VERY crowded. Another option is to take the Manes Bridge, north of Charles Bridge and see the grand arches from a distance. It is also much less crowded and the views are great.

Sunset Spots

Don’t miss a Prague sunset. They are truly beautiful and will leave you completely at ease. The Prague castle or Charles bridge areas are great to see it and you can surely find a secluded park along the Danube River.

Day Two:

Old Town Hall and The Astronomical Clock

Head in early to the Town Square before lunch, as it is a complete maze of people after 11am. The gothic buildings and grand Astronomical clock are beautiful and great for photos, but don’t expect empty streets- it is a very touristy area!

Jewish Quarter

On the east side of Prague lies the Jewish Quarter (just after Charles bridge exit). Here you can eat to your hearts content, drink (extremely cheap) beer and explore little markets along small promenades.

Prague Dancing House

Heading south in Prague city you will find the weird and wonderful Dancing House.  Located in the ‘New Town’ near the island parks of the Danube, this area is really cool to stroll around and relax, so once you have snapped a picture head over the bridges into the island parks (Slovansky Ostrov) for a coffee or ice cream.

Evening Drinks in the Quarter

Head back on into the Jewish quarter OR the St Nicholas church area for a well deserved meal and drinks. The lively streets will leave you beaming with Czech pride.
