We are arriving on Friday morning and plan a low key day of dinner and catching up on our sleep. We have all day Saturday and until 4pm Sunday to plan what we would like to do. I know RS has suggestions of what will not be covered in the tour. (Museum of Medieval Art, Havelska Market, National Museum and rowboat on the Vitava River.) I have thought of taking the tram 22 and getting off and on as we see interesting sites. (RS Guide doesn't recommend the Hop On Hop Off bus for this city.) I have also thought of doing a food tour. Any suggestions of must sites to see or things to do?
You can also use the trams to sightsee up and down the Vltava River.
Does your tour go to Terezín? I made a 2nd visit to Prague to go there with guide Pavel Batel. He is a great storyteller and highly knowledgeable about the history of Terezín.
Municipal House (Obecni Dum) has perhaps the most beautiful Art Nouveau interior I've ever seen. It's worth paying the extra fee to take photos. You have to take a tour to see the best rooms, so check right away about English-language tour availability if you'd like to see the building.
The Museum of Communism is worth visiting if you're interested in the Cold War period.
We stayed in Old Town and enjoyed the short walk to the Vltava River. We took a Sightseeing boat on a lovely day.
We also took a day trip to Terezin with Pavel Batel. He is the best storyteller guide we've ever hired. We booked months in advance so we wouldn't miss the tour of a lifetime!
Interested in restaurants? We enjoyed a traditional Czech dinner at Lokál in Old Town. We also had a wonderful meal at Hergetova Cihelna on the river. The view looks towards the St. Charles Bridge. It's stunning at night. We made reservations online.
Another vote for the Municipal House if interested in Art Nouveau. Exquisite.
when In may, I will be there from 15-22nd.if you are there Saturday 16th I could take you to the wonderful Dukla Prgaue football game on the Saturday morning,now that is real Prague stuff.
But if not then Saturdays are great market days, superb markets at Kulatak beside the Dejvicka metro, and then another good one down at Naplavka right on the river, loads of foods to try.
Look on BBQboy.net for "Prague's most beautiful walk and take it!
that walk that is in the BBQBoy site is a very good one but personally I would do it in reverse and start at the Strahov monastery, in fact I would do it as an afternoon walk and have lunch at the wonderful Klasterni Pivovar in the monastery and of course one of their great beers ( I do have an interesting story about the origins of their amazing IPA).I would then follow the route through the castle area remembering to leave a bit of time for the security queues(they are usually not bad from that entrance)and then follow the route and finish up in Letna park beer garden, easy to walk back down from there to the main city centre or get a tram.
Thank you to all with your recommendations!
