Things to do in Prague

So, you're heading to Prague? Whether you're on a couples retreat, a family break or a weekend away with your mates, this vibrant Czech city will leave you wanting more. 

There are many misconceptions about Prague, when I told my Dad I was going, he immediately pulled a face and instantly thought of the seedy nightlife and numerous amount of rowdy stag parties that wander the streets in search of beer and girls. But like any city, there are always going to be stereotypes and stories about what to expect, Prague is exactly the same. Now I'm not going to sit here and deny that there were groups of rowdy men (and women, may I add) stumbling out of the clubs at all hours, but don't you get that with any city? It's just Prague is a bit more better looking.

I went to Prague with three of my University friends on a three day trip, booked through Jet 2 as a City Break package holiday and we got the flights and accommodation relatively cheap, the hotel was basic, clean and nice enough for a short break in the Czech Republic.

The good thing about Prague is you get a lot of bang for your buck, the exchange rate is 1 GBP = 28.6865 CZK, so you'll get a lot of Czech Koruna and it's pretty cheap once you're there. For the British people reading this, it's average 35 CZK for a pint which works out as £1.22, so you be the judge. 

Things to Do: 

There are a number of activities to see and do in this vibrant city, from cultural activities to beer tours, you will find a variety of things to suit everyone. 

The must-see cultural attractions include: 

  • Old Town Square 
  • Prague Castle 
  • Charles Bridge 
  • St. Vitus Cathedral 

For those looking for something a bit more... interesting: 
  • Sex Museum 
  • Grevin Museum Prague 
  • Museum of Medieval Torture 
  • Prague Beer Spa  
  • Prague Zoo 

Food and Drink 

Some of you may know, Prague is home to Absinthe and there are plenty of Absinthe bars dotted around the city, there are also a number of pubs and clubs in the Old Town Square, for casinos head over to Wenceslas Square, it's half a mile long and filled with restaurants, bars and shops. For more familiar eats, Prague has a Hooters and Hard Rock Cafe, which is in the Old Town Square.  

For those looking for a night out, there are plenty of clubs and bars including the Ice Bar, La Valmont Club and Lounge, M1 Lounge Bar & Club, there is also the Clock Tower Bar Crawl which is around 25 CZK and takes you in underground bars around the city. You get 1 hour in each bar to enjoy free drinks including spirits and wine and they also have beer pong, oh and you get a free t-shirt.

Final Thoughts

Prague may have a bad reputation but in all honesty, it's not that bad! This city offers a selection of cultural and diverse attractions and experiences to suit everyone, whether you're off on a chic city break or a boozy stag do, Prague is affordable, beautiful and a place where everyone would enjoy.
