Prague

Prague

”Mother Prague has clutches,” Franz Kafka wrote nearly one hundred years ago. Prague’s convoluted streets may keep you in those clutches loving every second of it. Anyone who has wandered around the city's cobbled streets and Gothic alleyways and seen the moon hover behind the towers and pinnacles of Europe’s most beautiful capital will definitely come back.

Staronová Synagoga (Old-New Synagogue)

Staronová Synagoga is one of the oldest synagogues in Europe. This is where Rabbi Löw, who created Golem — the clay figure which was to protect Prague’s Jewish population from persecution — preached. It has been an important centre for Czech Jews for centuries.

Address
Červená, Prague
Karlův most (Charles Bridge)

This iconic bridge was built in 1357 under the guidance of Charles IV, and up to the 19th century it remained the only bridge connecting both sides of Prague. Take a stroll over the bridge and learn the names of the 30 saints whose statues stand sentinel there.

Karlův Most, Prague
Kolkovna

Kolkovna serves the best Czech food in the Old Town. Enjoy thick soups, grilled meat, and fish with a side of original unpasteurised Pilsner Urquell.

Address
Na Příkopě 852/10, Prague
Cantina

Cantina serves very good Mexican food at reasonable prices and stocks a decent selection of tequila. Always full, so if you want a table in the evening it is best to book early.

Address
Újezd 38, Prague
Designer Clothes

Even though there are no exact shopping areas for smaller shops with designer clothing, you will encounter a small concentration of them on Karoliny Světlé and Bartolomějská streets, in New Town. Boutiques such as Leeda and Alice Abraham are a good starting point.

Address
Bartolomějská St., Prague
Main Shopping Areas

Prague’s main shopping areas are situated in New Town: on Václavské námesti (Wenceslas Square), and, immediately below, on the pedestrian mall Na Příkopě. There are large individual shops and chain stores such as H&M, Zara, and Marks & Spencers, as well as several large department stores.

Address
Václavské námesti, Prague

Passport / Visa

The Czech Republic can be visited visa-free for up to 90 days by citizens of Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Malaysia, Israel, UAE and most countries in America. If you are unsure whether or not you need to apply for a visa, we recommend contacting the embassy or consulate in your country. International (non-Schengen) travelers need a passport that is valid for at least 3 months after the end of their intended trip in order to enter the Schengen zone. Citizens of Schengen countries can travel without a passport, but must have a valid ID with them during their stay.

Best Time to Visit

Prague is appealing in any season and has lots to offer throughout the year. The city is at its busiest during the summer months of July and August. Late spring and early fall are a little less crowded, whereas the slowest times are during the cold months of November, January, February, and March, so if you don't mind the cold and prefer fewer tourists, this would be a good time for you to travel to Prague. If you are thinking of coming to Prague in early spring, try to schedule your trip around Easter when Prague is decorated and Easter markets are open.
