Prague Castle requires several hours to explore thoroughly, but the effort is well worth it. Here visitors can watch the changing of the castle guard, view artwork from various centuries, peer back into the time of medieval Czech kings, experience the Gothic beauty of St. Vitus Cathedral, and even enjoy a classical music concert.
If you can't spend a day at Prague Castle, at least pay a visit to St. Vitus Cathedral. This Gothic Cathedral boasts a beautiful rose window and stained glass designed by the famous Czech Art Nouveau artist, Alfons Mucha, and sculpture, paintings, and other artwork from famous and skilled Czech artists and craftsmen. This Prague sight would be popular with crowds even if it wasn't free, but the lack of admission feel makes it even more attractive.
The Astronomical Clock in Old Town Square is one of Prague's most popular sights. The original parts of the clock date back to the 1400s, but the clock has been updated throughout the centuries. Figures emerge from the clock upon the hour. Be prepared for crowds eager to watch the clock's mechanisms if you're trying to snap photos.
Old Town Prague is a hub of Prague life and culture. Dine, shop, listen to music, or catch a seasonal festival on this historic square.
Also known as "Fred and Ginger," the Dancing Building simulates movement while maintaining its functionality. Its innovative design and surprising use of curvature have given it notoriety. If you would like to enjoy views of Prague from the Dancing Building, reserve a table at the top-floor restaurant, Celeste.
