Do you want to visit impressive attractions? You’re looking for the most famous shopping miles or enchanting boutiques for the perfect shopping trip? Or you’re interested in fascinating buildings of art and culture? We’ve compiled a selection for you.

  • Franz Kafka

    Franz Kafka was born on the border between Old Town and Josefov, the former Jewish quarter of Prague. Only the portal remains of the original house where he was born; the rest was burned to the ground. The house was rebuilt in 1902.
    There is a permanent exhibition about Franz Kafka and his work on the ground floor.

  • National Theater Národní Divadlo

    Ballet, opera and theatre
    The building housing the National Theatre, locally called the Národní Divadlo, is doubtlessly one of the most significant buildings in Prague’s New Town. It has had an enormous influence on the Czech language, music and culture. Today three artistic companies share the National Theatre: the ballet, the opera and the theatre. If you can arrange it, don’t miss an opportunity to see a show at this remarkable theatre.

  • Charles Bridge

    A walk across the Charles Bridge is a nearly mandatory part of every visit to Prague. It spans the Vltava, linking the old town to Lesser Town, locally called Malá Strana. Built in the 14th century, it is the most historically important bridge in Prague. It’s also one of the oldest stone bridges in Europe. It was named Charles Bridge in 1870 and is now a protected cultural monument. During the winter, crossing the snow-covered bridge is a particularly lovely and romantic – though also cold – experience.

  • Wenceslas Square

    Large square
    Wenceslas Square, locally called Václavské námestí, is pretty much right in the middle of Prague. In 1848 it was named after Saint Wenceslas, the patron saint of Bohemia. Up until that point, it was the Horse Market and the centre of Prague’s New Town. At nearly 60 metres wide, it resembles a boulevard more than a square, and with a length of 750 metres, it’s one of the largest squares in Europe.

  • Powder Tower

    The Powder Tower, locally called the Prašná brána, is a 65-metre-high Gothic defence gate and one of the 13 that originally enclosed Prague's Old Town. It got its name from the fact that gunpowder was stored here until the end of the 17th century. You might like to know that there is a short exhibit inside about the tower and its history.

  • Prague Castle

    Founded in the 9th century, Prague Castle, locally called Pražský hrad, is situated atop Hradcany hill and encloses the largest coherent castle complex in the world. Today the castle is the official residence of the President of the Czech Republic. The view over the city is fantastic and winding lanes surround the area around the castle.

  • Botas

    Cool sneakers
    For many years, Botas were the only sneakers you could buy in the former Czechoslovakia. They began producing sneakers in 1966. The classic model designed by Marcel Scheinpflug was originally manufactured from Mongolian horse hide. Nowadays Botas sneakers have become cult classics.

  • Antikvariát Ztichlá klika

    Old treasures
    Prague has second-hand shops on every corner. Most of them are antiquarian bookstores with more or less valuable collections. Antikvariát Ztichlá klika also offers treasures from the 16th century along with books from the Czech avant-garde, carefully edited editions of classics from the GDR, and old works from Prague authors like Gustav Meyrink, Egon Erwin Kisch, Max Brod and Franz Werfel. This place is worth a long browse.

  • Museum Kampa

    Art and dining
    On the spot of an old flour mill, contemporary art has been on exhibit since 2003, including works by František Kupka and Otto Gutfreund. The restaurant and café are practically a continuation of the Kampa Museum – using a somewhat different medium. Every inch of them back to the toilets was designed by artists and designers. The terrace over the Vltava is one of the prettiest places to raise a glass in Prague. The menu enchants guests with such delicacies as stuffed pancakes, chicken fricassee and wild boar loin.

  • Convent of St. Agnes

    National Gallery
    The National Gallery has been presenting its significant «collection of the Medieval art of Bohemia and Central Europe» since 2 000 in the authentic environment of the first convent of Poor Clares in Bohemia. A stroll through the simple rooms and corridors of the Convent of St. Agnes is a calming experience. Many pieces are mounted on large metal plates and their bright colours stand out from the glimmering backgrounds. This is a unique staging of sacred art.

  • DOX

    Centre for Contemporary Art
    DOX – the Centre for Contemporary Art – is a non-commercial, independent initiative and an attempt to combine experimentation, art and social interaction. The exhibition rooms are located in an industrial building complex from the late 19th century, a former metal factory. No visit is complete without a side trip to see the design shop and the book store. Perhaps have a coffee in the stylish café with terrace and to talk about what an all-round enjoyable experience a visit to this museum is.
