1. Charles Bridge by night
It may be a staple on the visitor circuit but Charles Bridge is worth a night time stroll. The city by night from the bridge and especially the view of the castle all lit up (the lights were paid for by the Rolling Stones) will make any trip worthwhile in seconds.
2. Letna Park
This park sits above the city on the north side of the river and was home to Europe’s largest group statue of Stalin before it was pulled down in 1962. Today, the space is taken up by a large metronome with amazing views over the city. Hint: the Hanavsky Pavilion offers views and great food if you fancy a pit stop.
3. Praha 7 Holesovice
Holesovice in the up and coming 7th district of Prague is a great taste of the city as a local. With warehouses situated along the marina hosting markets throughout the day and a great selection of cafes, bars and restaurants to choose from, you can easily spend the day. Check out the selection of ‘beer tapas’ at microbrewery Pivovar Marina for an authentic Czech experience.
4. Astronomical Clock
Another ‘bucket list’ item but with a dancing skeleton and a view of the Tyn Church which inspired the Disney logo from the same square foot of pavement, a moment in front of the clock is well worth the time (#intentional).
5. Leica Gallery Prague
While there’s always an international viewpoint on show, this photography gallery aims to showcase both Czech and Slovak photographers front and centre. Currently there’s an exhibition exploring freedom against the backdrop of the 25th anniversary of the Velvet Revolution – inspiring stuff.
