Prague is the capital and largest city of the Czech Republic. also, it’s a very historic city. So, you can visit this list of places if you plan a trip to Prague.
The Old Town
Prague’s old town is where all the tours go, but that’s because it’s gorgeous. Spend your first day wandering its cobblestone streets and of course, getting some photos.
It’s basically a gigantic ornately decorated, cuckoo clock that comes alive on the hour. You can also climb to the top for great views of the old town.
Start with Lokal, which as the name suggests, serves only local Czech products. Nase Maso, a top-notch butchery that has a beer, served from a faucet on the wall. Don’t miss the meatloaf or the burger.
The Czech Republic is the birthplace of the Pilsner, the world’s most popular beer style made famous by Pilsner Urquell. But the best beer comes in small batches so check out microbreweries like Pivovar Basta where the beer is literally cheaper than water.
Czechs love their Pilsners, but they’re not stuck in the past. Try something newer at craft beer pubs like Zly Casy. Beers are more expensive than Pilsner, but still pretty damn cheap.
Cross the river on the Charles Bridge up to the Prague Castle. It’s got great views of the city, and it used to be the capital of the Kingdom of Bohemia.
The Kingdom of Bohemia gave us the word “bohemian” because back in the day, they thought gypsies came from here. Soak up the boho life at places like Cafe Sladkovsky, a cafe or restaurant or pub that’s perfect for writing your next novel, reading some Kafka, or just drinking more beer.
Krymska Street, home to trendy pubs, restaurants, and shops. It’s a great little area to explore and has some really beautiful architecture.
The original counter-culture spot is the Lennon Wall, named after John, not Vladamir because it became a canvas for anti-communist protests during the Cold War. Even today, you’re free to draw whatever you want.
Near the Lennon Wall is the artwork of David Cherny, the subversive artist who protested communism with his artwork. To get off the beaten path, head over to the MeetFactory, his exhibition area, where he usually has something pretty funky going on.
