"Had a fantastic weekend in Prague with Euroadventures. Everything was planned out perfectly with a nice mix of included and guided activities and also a good amount of free time & optional activities offered (that you could book). We were a group of friends and upgraded to a nice private hotel room just a few minutes by foot from Wenceslas square. Any questions we had were promptly answered as they're always available by WhatsApp or email.. Would definitely book with them again and definitely recommend Euroadventures if you're looking for a fun organized trip that is great value for the money."
"we took a Wingbuddy tour to Prague , Vienna and Budapest. I normally just gook on my own. They were a pleasure to deal with on the phone and upped our hotels to 4 stars.

Reviews of Prague Tours
"My sister and I just completed the UNESCO tour with Marek. The tour exceeded my expectations. Marek ‘s English was very good and he was very good about checking with us to see if we needed anything or wished to stop at a shop. The sites were all interesting, I especially enjoyed St Barbera’s Basilica and our stops in Telc and Trebic. The cost seemed reasonable considering all we did. There is a lot of walking, so pack comfortable shoes! I highly recommend the tour."
"From the moment we set foot in Prague, Dasha's infectious enthusiasm set the tone for the entire adventure. Her deep knowledge of Bohemian history and culture was evident as she effortlessly guided us through the cobbled streets, unraveling the secrets of Prague Castle, the Charles Bridge, and the Old Town Square. Dasha's engaging storytelling added an extra layer of richness to every landmark, making the city come alive with centuries of tales. As we ventured beyond Prague into the heart of Bohemia, John's expert driving skills ensured a smooth and comfortable journey. His professionalism and friendly demeanor made each road trip enjoyable, whether winding through picturesque landscapes or navigating charming villages. John's insights into the local scenery and customs enhanced our appreciation for the Bohemian countryside. The itinerary was thoughtfully crafted, offering a perfect balance of cultural exploration and leisure. Highlights included visits to Cesky Krumlov, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that felt like stepping into a fairy tale, and Karlovy Vary, with its healing thermal springs and elegant architecture. Dasha's ability to tailor the experience to the group's interests ensured that every day was filled with excitement and discovery. The accommodations selected for our stay were not only comfortable but also reflected the unique charm of each location. Whether it was a boutique hotel in Prague or a cozy inn in a Bohemian village, every place contributed to the overall magic of the tour. What truly set this tour apart was the seamless coordination between Dasha and John. Their teamwork ensured that our group felt like a close-knit community, sharing laughter and creating memories. The camaraderie extended beyond the scheduled activities, fostering a warm and inclusive atmosphere that added an extra layer of joy to the journey. In conclusion, the Seven Days Tour in Bohemia exceeded all expectations, offering a perfect blend of cultural immersion, scenic beauty, and genuine fun. Dasha and John's passion for their craft, coupled with their warm personalities, transformed a great tour into an unforgettable adventure. If you're seeking a travel experience that combines history, beauty, and laughter, look no further than this Bohemian gem of a tour. Highly recommended!"
"Being a solo traveller is quite challenging. But I was pleased on the first day when I finally met the whole group, which consists of some from my home country. That made me feel so much at ease and confident. Pick up service at the airport were on time. Hotel though in Prague is a bit small, otherwise its clean and food at the restaurant and breakfast were all good. Hotel in Frankfurt seems new with its modern theme and spacious. Hotel in Amsterdam is a good size room too, clean and modern design. The bus is clean. All the drivers were good, specially Libor who is focused on his job. Our tour guide, Dioni was patient, pleasant and funny at times. The tours indicated in the itinerary were delivered. All the local tour guides, Marquina-Prague and Ellen-Amsterdam (not sure of this name), did well too. Overall, I had a good time. I didn't regret traveling alone with Europamundo! I will surely recommend Europamundo. I hope to travel with you again."

The historic city of Prague is most probably one of the most beautiful in the world. Famously known as the City of a Hundred Spires, the landscape is dramatic, filled with spectacularly crafted buildings and monuments, and of course the Vltava River. The ornately and intricately carved facades of the buildings tell a story of a time in history conjuring up pictures in one’s mind of what life was like, who and what the people were that lived in Prague. The bustling cobbled streets shimmer in the sunlight, worn down from years of wear. Beautifully decorated windows entice one to enter the prestigious boutiques filled with handmade hats, designer wear and finely crafted Czech glassware. Impressive churches and Towers adorn the skyline as one enjoys panoramic vistas of the city of Prague from its oldest bridge, the Charles Bridge. The monumental Prague Castle, the largest medieval castle in the world overlooks the city of Prague in all her splendour. Take a moment of reflection in the exquisite Palace Gardens before heading to the Old town Hall where the Astronomical Clock yet again takes one back in time.

You’re going to need to know when to visit Prague , so you can make the most of the weather you prefer!
Summer (June- August) is Prague’s busiest season. The weather is warm and sunny, but the crowds come in hordes. This is generally when prices tend to shoot up, and accommodation, as well as attractions, can get pricey. Find out how affordable Prague is throughout the year.
During springtime (March-May), you can expect mild weather and a lack of crowds, which makes it a great time to travel to Prague!
Autumn (September-October) is also a great time to spend a weekend in Prague, although the weather is a little colder, it’s not too icy and you’ll avoid a good portion of the crowds. It’s still a good idea to book in advance because during this time a few of the holiday-makers linger around.
During winter (November-February), Prague can get very cold! If you’re able to brave the sometimes below freezing temperatures, there will be plenty of perks waiting for you! It’s a great European winter destination . Things come down in price as the mercury drops, accommodation becomes far more affordable, and you can completely avoid the crowds!
Here’s what you can expect month-to-month, so you can plan a trip to Prague!
What’s the Weather like in Prague?
We all know that the weather is going to make a difference. The best time to visit Europe will really depend on what kind of experience you want to make.
There are so many wonderful places to stay in Prague that it can become challenging to make a decision.
One of our favourite neighbourhoods in Prague is Old Town. It’s filled with enticing things to see and incredible medieval history to learn about! At its centre, you’ll find the historic Old Town Square, which draws over six million tourists every year.
This is the perfect place to stay if you’re a history-lover and like to be close to all the action. You may encounter crowds during peak season, however, during the quiet season, it’s a magical place!
New Town is a great neighbourhood and is far less tourist-focused. It’s filled with bars, restaurants, nightclubs, and shops! The prices in New Town tend to be a lot easier on the pockets, making it a great place to stay if you’re on a budget or backpacking around the Czech Republic .
Now that you know some of the best areas to stay in Prague, it’s time to look at which hotels or hostels best suit your needs! There are so many things to do in Prague, you’re going to want to stay somewhere awesome!
Best Hostel in Prague – Czech Inn
The Czech Inn is located in the perfect place, close to all the major tourist attractions, but outside of the busy areas. You can also take part in daily Prague walking tours that depart from the reception area!
The staff are friendly and there are a host of accommodation options to suit your travelling needs. If your heart is set on a hostel, there are plenty more hostels in Prague !
The Best Airbnb in Prague – Back to the Past
Start exploring in the heart of Prague while still on your budget. This is easily one of the best Airbnbs in Prague ! The location for solo and couple travellers is central and exciting.
This open-plan studio apartment is bright and airy while still being still charming. The cosy studio offers a well-designed space that includes a double king size bed and a sofa bed, so you can camp out in front of the TV or have a 3rd guest (best for a child). There’s also air conditioning for the warm summer months.
And if it’s summer, the owner may even offer to take you paddle boarding. On the nights you aren’t at the Dlouha, well known for its restaurants, bars, clubs, and nightlife, there’s a selection of books you can choose from to read while you are snuggling up in the loft bedroom overlooking the city.
Best Budget Hotel in Prague – Bed&Books
Hotel Inos offers spacious rooms located 10 minutes away from the Old Town by tram and right on the Vltava River. Each room features a private bathroom, a flat-screen TV and a free wifi connection. Some rooms also have a balcony. In the morning, a buffet breakfast with traditional Czech items is served to guests.
Free wifi is offered in every room which makes staying connected to family and friends or digital nomading really easy while you’re on the road.
With a Prague City Pass , you can experience the best of Prague at the CHEAPEST prices. Discounts, attractions, tickets, and even public transport are all standards in any good city pass – be sure invest now and save them $$$ when you arrive!
When touring Prague, it’s important to know how you’re going to get around, so you can plan your trip in the most effective way possible.
Boarding a metro is by far the fastest way to get around Prague. There are three different lines that cover the city centre and the outskirts of the city.
If you’re travelling short distances within the city centre, taking a tram is generally the most effective way to get around.
If you like to get a bit of exercise during your travels, renting a bicycle is a great way to see a more authentic side of the city, and it’s a nippy way of getting from place to place! There are plenty of bicycle lanes that make cycling through Prague pain-free.
If you prefer to travel on foot, that’s also an effective way of navigating Prague and it’s by far the cheapest way to travel! Walking gives you a chance to get to know the delightful locals, who are always ready to lend a helping hand to travellers looking for directions.
Be careful about taking taxis around the city, they tend to be a lot more expensive than public transport and can escalate their prices during the busy season. They also have a knack for ripping off tourists, so be careful if you decide to travel this way.
Now that you know the most effective way to navigate the city, let’s look at what to do in Prague , and what you should be adding to your Prague trip itinerary!
Wanna know how to pack like a pro? Well for a start you need the right gear….
These are packing cubes for the globetrotters and compression sacks for the real adventurers – these babies are a traveller’s best kept secret. They organise yo’ packing and minimise volume too so you can pack MORE.
Or, y’know… you can stick to just chucking it all in your backpack…
If you’re spending one day in Prague, you’re going to need to fill it with all the best things to do, so you don’t feel like you’re missing out! You’ll spend your day exploring the most significant historical sites in Prague and learning about the city’s rich history.
9am – Stroll Through the Old Town Square
Walk the cobbled streets of this area and be transported back in time! This area is swarming with tourists in the busy season but makes a very pleasant excursion at any other time of the year.
Take some time to admire the incredible architecture of the buildings that surround the square, or merely enjoy the street performers, musicians, and merchants that frequent the area. Despite the throngs of people, seeing these performances is an absolute treat!
You’ll find merchants selling all kinds of touristy trinkets, so be sure to take some cash along for the trip!

It has been damaged and repaired over the years but remains fully intact. The show that takes place on the hour never fails to disappoint on-looking tourists.

The bridge only came to completion in 1390, and only in the 19th century did the bridge come to take his name.
Statues were added to the bridge in the 17th-century, most of them in baroque style. Although none of the originals are left, replicas have been made in place of the damaged statues. These statues are incredibly intricate and make for a very interesting sight!
The bridge connects Prague Castle and the city’s Old Town, two very important Prague landmarks! If you’re visiting Prague for the first time, this is a must-do activity on your Prague itinerary.

During the 13th century, Jewish people living in Prague were forced to vacate their homes and live in an area between Old Town and the Vltava River. The houses were smaller and families were forced to live in apartment-style buildings.
The Jewish Ghetto, also known as the Jewish Quarter was where Jewish people in Prague were forced to stay right up until the 19th century when the town was remodelled.
Many of the buildings were destroyed, however, there are still a few to explore, and there are many synagogues still standing!

Prague Castle can be visited for free, but we recommend taking a guided tour, which enables you to learn a lot more while you’re exploring the castle.
It was built way back in the 9th century, holding many years’ worth of history in its walls. It is also the largest ancient castle in the world, taking up 70,000 square meters!
The Bohemian Crown Jewels are kept in a hidden room within the castle. Although you won’t get to see them, knowing they are there is enough to enthral you.
The Prague castle draws over 1.8 million tourists every year, making it one of the most visited tourist attractions in Prague.
The castle has always been the dwelling place of the ruler of the Czech Republic. This means that many kings have stayed there throughout the years! It is now the official office of the current president of the Czech Republic.
With so much history and grandeur, this is by far one of the best Prague activities you can take part in!

If you’re spending two days in Prague, you’re going to need a few extra activities to add to your Prague itinerary. Make sure you have some comfy shoes on your packing list , you’re going to need them! You’ll spend the day exploring some of the more unique things to do in Prague. Here are a few of the best things to add.
9am – Walk Along Golden Lane
Golden Lane gets its name from the story that is told throughout Prague. It is said that alchemists used to stay in the houses along Golden Lane, and they were commissioned to find a chemical reaction that would turn ordinary objects into gold!
It’s debatable whether this is true or not, but one thing is not up for debate. If alchemists ever stayed there, they didn’t succeed in turning ordinary objects into gold.
The Czech writer, Franz Kafka, stayed in one of the houses along Golden Lane for around two years. He is said to have found it very peaceful, the perfect place to work on his writing!
Each house along the lane is a different colour, making it look like a scene out of a movie. This is a great place to come and take some touristy photos during your trip, and the perfect place to visit in Prague.
- Getting there – It’s close to Prague Castle.
11am – Visit St. Vitus Cathedral
The Cathedral is hundreds of years old and is one of the largest cathedrals in the country. It’s a Roman Catholic cathedral and the seat of the Archbishop of Prague. St Vitus Cathedral is a great example of Gothic architecture, and is widely thought of as the most important cathedral in the country!
The Cathedral contains the tombs of many Bohemian kings and Roman Emperors. If you’re an architecture fan or a lover of history, this is a must-visit during your time in Prague!
This could be considered one of the more unique things to do in Prague as not as many tourists visit the cathedral. Its many spires and turrets are picture perfect and look like they belong on a postcard!
- Cost – USD $8
- Getting there – St. Vitus Cathedral is located in the castle grounds, near to Golden Lane, which means travel costs are not an issue!
- How long should you stay – 1 hr
1pm – Investigate the KGB Museum
For the first time in history, the historic objects that belonged to the first persons of the Soviet state and the senior functionaries of the Soviet State security are all collected in one place!
Because it’s a private collection, you can only see the museum by a private tour which should be arranged prior to arrival.
The museum holds some very unusual pieces, like the death mask of Lenin, Trotsky’s murder weapon, and the radio from Beria’s cabinet. You can also find equipment from the KGB laboratories, as well as many other weird and wonderful things!
You can also take a look at the KGB photo collection, which depicts KGB soldiers on the streets of Prague!
The aim of the museum is not to depict violence, racism, and other forms of hate, but rather to remember a previous time in Prague history, through the eyes of the KGB.
- Cost – USD $21 for a guided tour
- Getting there – It’s a 10 min walk from the Castle
- How long should you stay – 1.5hrs
3pm – See the Hanging Sculpture of Sigmund Freud
Above a cobbled street in Stare Mesto, hangs a 7-foot statue of the famous psychoanalyst, Sigmund Freud. The artwork has been so popular that it’s been replicated in Chicago, London, and Berlin!
If you are unaware that the statue is there, it can easily be missed, so make sure you make the effort to find it during your time in Prague. Although a glance is all it takes to see the statue, the meaning it holds is a crucial one. “Lookup” is its message, and we think it’s quite powerful!
- Getting there – The statue can be found in the Stare Mesto area of Old Town, hanging from a pole on top of a building.
- How long should you stay – 15mins
3:30pm – See the Lennon Wall
The Lennon wall has been covered in Beatles-themed graffiti, Beatles lyrics, and quotations since the 1980s! It’s very popular amongst tourists as well as fans wanting to pay homage to the group.
The wall is located in a small secluded area, just across from the French Embassy. The wall started after the assassination of John Lennon when an artist daubed a single painting of the legend. Since then, others have added their own pieces to the wall to pay their respects to the famed musician!
The wall is continuously changing, in fact, the original painting of Lennon is long lost under layers and layers of paint!
At one point, authorities painted over the wall, but by the next morning, it was filled with art again. This goes to show just how much Beatles fans respect and love these musicians!
This activity is one of the most fun things to do in Prague, and is great for getting the perfect touristy photo!
- Getting there – It’s a 5 min walk from Charles Bridge on Velkop?evorské nám
- How long should you stay – 30mins
5pm – Black Light Theatre Show Experience
This incredible spectacle will grab your attention from the very beginning. The lights, the intricate artworks that make up the show and the exciting entertainment are all you need to have an incredible evening!
The performance is the tale of a man who is searching for his true self, and the only thing standing in his way is deep fear. He manages to defeat his fear with the help of magical beings.
If you’re a fan of performance art or love conceptualizing new ideas, this is the perfect show for you. The drama is gripping and the artistic sets are awe-inspiring!
Various different stories unfold on stage in front of your eyes, each a little more enthralling than the last. This is a great show to come to for both children and adults alike. It showcases the incredible talent that Prague has to offer and its culturally diverse performance capabilities!
You’re sure to love the beautiful music, the 4D effects, and the interesting insights the show provides into the human mind!

Generally, Prague is safe , and there aren’t many dangers to watch out for. However, it’s better to be safe than sorry! It’s always a good idea to keep your eyes peeled during your Prague trip.
Always be on the lookout for pickpockets when you’re in touristy areas. These places are hotspots for pickpockets, so it’s best to keep your personal belongings hidden.
There are certain buildings in the city where photography is not allowed. Check before you enter as there is usually a sign that indicates whether or not photography is allowed. If you’re taking photos in a church, be sure to turn your flash off so that you don’t disturb worshipers.
Be sure to validate your public transport ticket each time before you catch a ride. If you’re caught on public transport with an unvalidated ticket you will face a hefty fine.

The Ultimate Budget Friendly Travel Guide to Prague, Czech Republic
P rague is a city that has a little bit of everything. It has some of the most beautiful architecture and unique landscapes. Prague can be expensive or cheap, depending on how you want to travel. In this budget friendly travel guide to Prague we share how to best visit Prague on a small budget without missing any of its main attractions.
How to get to Prague?
The best way to get to Prague depends on where you are traveling from. We have been in Prague twice, once coming from Madrid, Spain via airplane and the second from Vienna by bus. You can also travel by train, which is often the more expensive option when traveling within Europe.
Once you arrive in Prague it is really easy to move around on a budget as there is great public transportation and Uber. The tram, busses and metros are inexpensive or free with the Prague Card , which is a visitors card that allows you to visit many museums and activities for one price.
Prague provides a different atmosphere in each season and is worth visiting multiple times throughout the year. Highlights include the Christmas Markets in Prague in winter and Easter markets in the spring.
Where to stay in Prague?
Traveling as a couple we normally skip over hostels for added privacy and the cost is comparable to other budget hotels. To get the most budget friendly accommodations in Prague we stayed at what is now the comfortable Le Petit Hotel Prague , situated 3 km northeast of historic downtown. We opted for the 30 minute walk each direction, but there is also a nearby tram for an easy commute. If you are more into luxury, we loved the K+K Hotel Central in the heart of Prague.
What to eat in Prague?
While in Prague there are so many different types of food to try. Our favorite are the fruit dumplings, potato soup, roast pork, Langos and of course the goulash. If you are more of a desert fan, do not miss out on the delicious Trdelnik . You of course cannot leave Prague without trying the Pilsen Beer from the Pilsner Urquell Brewery!
What to visit in Prague on a budget?
Prague has a lot to visit and explore for free, with thousands if years of history to offer. So, it depends on your preferences on what are the most interesting places for you to visit. We have selected our favorite activities in Prague on a tight budget.
Prague is the definitely one of those cities where you could easily spend a week but if you only have a weekend to explore Prague make sure to hit the main things to do such as the Charlie Bridge and the John Lennon Wall.
Where to go in Prague Map
Cross the charles bridge.
The Charles Bridge was completed in the early 1400s and is one of the most iconic landmarks in Prague. Crossing over the bridge you can see 30 statues and a stunning view of the city and the Prague Castle. You can climb 138 steps up the Old Town Bridge Tower to its viewing gallery of the city.
Old Town Square
The Old Town Square houses two of the most famous landmarks in Prague, the astronomical clock and the Our Lady Tyn Church. You can climb the Old Town Hall Tower for a 250 CZK and enjoy a 360 degree panoramic view. The fee also includes entry to the Old Town Hall ‘ s underground, historical halls and the Chapel of the Virgin Mary.
If you prefer spending your money on a coffee, go to the rooftop terrace of the U Prince Hotel , to sit back and relax with wonderful views of the Astronomical Clock tower and the church.
The Prague Castle is the largest coherent castle complex in the entire. You can go inside the Prague Castle complex for free and explore, but if you want to visit the Golden Lane, the St Vitus Cathedral and the Royal Palace there is an entrance fee . The Golden Lane is beautiful but it is often crowded so if you choose to go make sure to go early in the day avoid the crowds.
John Lennon Wall
The John Lennon Wall is a continually evolving display of graffiti from people and artists from all around the world with a general theme of peace and love.
The Dancing House is one of Frank Gehry’s most prominent and unique buildings, as the architectural design resembles a pair of dancers along the Vltava River. The Dancing House is now partially a hotel with rooftop restaurant and terrace bar providing panoramic views of the city and river.
Jewish Museums & Neighborhood
Even though you need a ticket to visit the synagogues and Jewish museums it is well worth the money. No contemporary built synagogues today in Prague pretty as the colorful Jerusalem Synagogue or the 19th century Spanish Synagogue . From the destruction of the Second World War there are not many of these historic synagogues still standing. Do not miss out on the Old New Synagogue, built in 1270 and home of the Golem of Prague. If you are interested in visiting the Jewish neighborhood we have a complete guide to visit all the Jewish Sites in Prague .
