If you’re planning a trip to Prague for a few days, even for just a weekend getaway, then you’re going to need to do some good planning. With a quality itinerary you’ll be able to make it to all the must-sees without even feeling like you’re just running all over town – you’ll even have time for some relaxation. For this plan to work you’re going to need a hotel stay in Prague’s city center to ensure none of your priceless time is wasted on traveling between events. We would recommend staying in Prague at Hotel Rott, located a stone’s throw away from the Old Town Square, making a stay here a combination of an exceptional price and wonderful location.Many things that you can do in only two days of traveling through Prague.Take a look at this article to learn about the Itinerary in Prague.
After enjoying an outstanding breakfast at your hotel, start heading toward Prague Castle, which is considered one of the oldest and most expansive castles in the world. You can comfortably arrive to the castle’s entrance by tram. Here you can choose between two visitor’s paths. We recommend taking the shorted B path, you’ll still be able to see all the best stuff. After your tour you might feel like going for a coffee. If you’re feeling a little stylish and looking for a relatively cheap place not filled with crowds of other tourists, head over to the small streets named Nový svět (New World) where you will find the New World Coffee House tucked away into a picturesque home with a beautiful terrace. New World is where the paupers and castle staff used to live and their specific style with simple architecture still stands to this day. After your coffee continue on past Loretánské náměstí ( Loretánské Square) and through Velká strahovská zahrada (Large Monastery Garden), a distance of about one kilometre, to get to Petřín Tower.
Scramble up the observation tower from where you can feast your eyes on a wondrous view of Prague, and, should you have children with you, be sure to take them to the famous Mirror Maze. You can enjoy a late lunch at Nebozízek, located on the middle cableway stop while on your way down. From the restaurant you’ll once again have a beautiful panoramic view of Prague. After exiting from the cableway car, you will find yourself at Újezd. Catch a tram to the stop on Malostranské náměstí (Small Town Square) and, weather permitting, don’t let a visit to Waldstein Garden pass you by. Then the baroque gem St. Nicholas’ Church will be waiting for you. If you’re starting to tire by now, we would recommend an afternoon/evening program consisting of renting some paddle boats on the Vltava river, a visit to one of the many art cinemas or a jazz concert on one of the steamboats from which you can experience Prague as if it was on the palm of your hand.
On your second day make time for a visit to the Old Jewish Cemetery, one of the oldest and most well-kept Jewish cemeteries in the whole world, a visit to the Old Town Square with its Church of Our Lady before Týn and the Old Town Hall. We would recommend a visit to all of these sights. Then, go for a bird’s eye view of the city center without having to huff a bunch of stairs. In the astronomical clock tower visitors can take the glass elevator to the top or go down below for a unique experience in the cellars. Now, take a walk across Charles Bridge, the second oldest bridge in the Republic.
If you brave the stairs that can be found on the left-hand side of the bridge, you will find yourself at Kampa Island, where an array of scenic restaurants with views of the river and primarily the museum of modern art, Museum Kampa, which is located in the compound of Sovový Mill Houses, can be found. A visit here is definitely worth your time.
