Things To Do In Prague
When considering the top things to do in Prague every visitor's first priority should be where to find the city's best landmarks and how to conduct their sightseeing. The Czech capital is renowned for its historical city centre, where clean, charming streets and cobbled plazas exude a captivating Gothic romance. It is within the Old Town that you can find the greatest concentration of Prague's regular sightseeing list toppers. Connecting this majestic district to the rest of city by way of spanning the Vltava River is Charles Bridge. The photogeneity of the bridge's medieval architecture is supplemented by 75 statues, which gracefully embellish the edges of the walkway.
Further into the district at Old Town Square one can find the famous Old Town Hall Tower and Astronomical Clock. Visit the clock at the turn of each hour when a little trap door opens and a mini procession of Christ and his disciples march out.
As the cultural heart of the city Old Town Square isn't just a tourist attraction in it's own right, it's a great place from which to disembark on more fun things to do. Guides from City Sightseeing Prague meet visitors in the square for daily walking tours of Prague Castle and the Jewish Quarter (Josefov). Both places represent two of the most significant landmarks in the capital and City Sightseeing offers tourists a chance to see them from an enlightened perspective. The operator also runs a hop-on hop-off bus service and regular sightseeing cruises of the Vltava River. By booking the bus tour visitors can open up a definitive variety of activities throughout Prague.
Get a panoramic view of the iconic Dancing House at Jiraskovo Namesti and hop-off at stop 5 for easy access to the Strahov Monastery. These two places are just a few of the fine things to see on the City Sightseeing Prague Bus Tour. For a bird's-eye view of the entire cityscape take a stroll through the parks of Mala Strana towards Petrin Observation Tower. The 60 meter tower has a wheelchair accessible lift and telescopes at the summit.
Prague Zoo lies to the north of the city, while the central portions contain the bulk of its museums- some of which are awesomely unique. Collectively these institutions cover a diverse range of topics, including Lego, Communism, Torture, Modern Art (Kampa), Decorative Arts, Sex and Transport. Additionally, be sure to discover Prague's musical heritage at the opulent Prague National Theatre and the historic Estates Theatre.
