Top 10 Attractions in Prague - Don't Miss Them!

Prague is heaven for any traveler who loves history, art, and culture. In this article, we will share our Top 10 Attractions anyone visiting Prague has to have on their bucket list.

Old Town Hall

Visiting this site will cross out two extra attractions on your list - Old Town Square and Astronomical Clock- because Old Town Hall is located on the square of the same name and the famous Prague clock has been gracing its tower since 1410. The building of the Old Town Hall is comprised of multiple houses, a tall tower, and an underground system, all of which are possible to visit with a ticket. The ticket also includes the guided tour of the interiors, which is conducted multiple times a day and can be bought at the cash desk of the information center as well as online via the official website. Bear in mind, that using the elevator of the Astronomical Clock tower isn’t included in the price, but it is comfortable to walk up to.

Pro Tip: Get an early bird 50% discount and visit on the first hour of the day. 

Charles Bridge

The oldest stone bridge in the Czech capital and the longest Gothic bridge in Europe, Charles Bridge has to be on your bucket list of Prague’s attractions. It is graced with 31 statues of saints and mythical figures and two entrance towers which you can climb for a nice view. The tickets to the towers can be bought at the cash desks as well as online.

Pro Tip: We recommend visiting Charles Bridge early in the morning, at about 7 am ideally, as it gets packed during the day. The night walk across this romantic bridge will also be nice.

Prague Castle

This ancient castle complex is the most visited attraction in Prague with close to 2 million people purchasing tickets to see its magnificent interiors and another couple million roaming through its courtyards for free every year. As you probably have gathered, you can visit Prague Castle in multiple different ways, as it has several palaces, gardens, museums, galleries, and churches to see. We have explained everything you need to know about Prague Castle's history here, as well as tickets you can purchase in this article. You can also check out our latest video update on the Prague Castle on our YouTube channel. 

National Museum

The depository of the Czech National Museum is so large, that it had to be spread out between several buildings, but we recommend starting your visit with the Main historical one located on Wenceslas Square. There, you will learn about natural history, key events that shaped Czech people and culture, and other fascinating things displayed in the temporary exhibitions. After the Main building, you can check out the Museum of Czech Music, Naprstek Museum, or Lapidarium. We will link all of them as well as the link to the tickets here.

National Gallery

Same as the National Museum, the National Gallery has several branches you can check out here. We have visited the Trade Fair Palace in our Indoor Activities video, and suggest starting from there if you want to spend 2-4 hours admiring art. For shorter visits, we recommend St Agnes Monastery and palaces on the Hradcany Square. Prices for tickets to the National Gallery vary depending on the branch you want to visit, and we will link their official website here, so you can check it out.

Municipal House

This stunning Art Nouveau complex is home to beautiful restaurants, a gallery, and Smetana Concert Hall, which is an excellent choice if yiu are looking to spend your evening enjoying classical music. Municipal House Cafe (Kavarna Obecni Dum) is our personal favorite; we love their desserts and breakfasts. You can also get a guided tour of the interiors which covers the most beautiful spaces in the complex, including a room painted by Alfons Mucha and Smetana Hall. Tickets to the Municipal House can be bought at the cash desk and via their official website. 

St Nicholas Church in the Lesser Town

This magnificent baroque church located in the Lesser Town, stands out thanks to its tall tower and large cupola. St Nicholas church was constructed by the Jesuit Order which had no shortage of finances for its exterior and interior decorations. As a result, this structure became one of the most iconic churches of baroque style in the country, with one of the largest indoor frescoes in Central Europe. You can visit this church during a concert or its opening hours. The tickets are sold at the entrance but bear in mind that the tower isn’t included in the price and has a separate admission fee.


Prague has no shortage of beautiful parks, but Petrn Garden is perhaps the most iconic one. The beautiful views of Prague’s city center have placed it on our list of top attractions. You can ride a funicular on its top, or climb the Petrin tower for a panoramic view. The tickets to the tower can be purchased at the entrance as well as online. 

Jewish Quarter

Prague’s Jewish Quarter is one of the most well-preserved former ghettos in Europe, with several synagogues, Ceremonial Hall, and the Old Jewish Cemetery open for visitors every day except Saturdays. You can walk around and admire the historical buildings such as the Old New Synagogue, or splurge and get a ticket to the Jewish Museum which will include all the above-mentioned sights as well as the exhibitions. You can purchase the ticket in the Info centers of the museum, and check out prices on the official website. 


A former castle and a fortress, Vysehrad is a great quieter place where you can admire views of Prague, have a picnic, or visit the historical sights such as St Peter and Paul Basilica, Vysehrad Cemetery, and the casemates. We have filmed a virtual tour of Vysehrad on our YouTube channel recently. You can get more information about tours and exhibitions of Vysehrad in the tourist centers located at Spicka gate or online.
