Top sights and attractions in Prague

City breaks in Prague are, as a rule, cheap. There are few European countries where you can get such good value for your money. So you don’t need to break the bank to relax in a fantastic hotel, grab a bite to eat or hit the town. The cost of entry for almost all attractions is less than £14.

Don’t miss out on the following 5 must-see attractions in the Golden City:

  • 1st place: Charles Bridge
  • 2nd place: Prague Old Town
  • 3rd place: The Old Town Square
  • 4th place: Prague Castle
  • 5th place: Wenceslas Square

Most of the tourist hotspots are in the castle quarter with the eponymous Prague Castle, Wenceslas Square and the Old Town. The Old Town houses the majority of the most well-known sights in the city, including the characteristic landmark, Charles Bridge.

Take the opportunity to watch the ceremonial changing of the guard at 12-noon every day in front of Prague Castle. There are also tours of the castle grounds which are very reasonably priced.

Travelcircus tip: If you want to take some dramatic holiday pictures of Charles Bridge or just soak up the breathtaking views from this historic landmark, it’s worth heading to the bridge early in the morning or later in the evening to avoid the crowds.
