Lobkowicz Palace is the only privately owned building inside the Prague Castle complex. It's home to the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra, and listening to them play in this Baroque Concert Room is a real treat for the ears!

Letna Park sits above the city and provides one of the most beautiful views of Prague that you're likely to find. It's also the home of a quirky giant metronome. Yep - I told you Prague has some interesting art! It's a great place to grab an Instagram photo.
And more importantly, it's the home to the Letna Park Beer Garden. Grab a delicious brew and enjoy the view from this lovely park!
This fun dinner experience gives a new meaning to "dinner and a show". You'll enjoy an entertaining evening of swordsmen, jugglers, and belly dancers while feasting on a delicious 5-course meal. Of course, it includes unlimited beer as well. What's not to love?
I can't think of a more relaxing way to see the city than a river boat cruise down the Vlatva River. Enjoy a complimentary cocktail and snack while a local guide tells you all about the city. You'll view Prague Castle, Charles Bridge, the National Theatre, and more as you cruise down the river.
Enjoy the convenience of a bus tour at your own leisure with the hop-on/hop-off open top bus. The route takes you all around Prague, stopping at all of the popular tourist attractions including Prague Castle and the Jewish Quarter.
Pair the bus tour with a Prague Card for a really economical (and fun) way to tour the city.
If you have the time, another fantastic day trip is to Kunta Hora, which is the home to the should-be-famous Bone Church. This odd Gothic Church is literally decorated with the bones of it's former wealthy patrons.
As you all know, Ia m quite the shutterbug. So one of my first priorities upon arriving in Prague was to find all the best photo spots in the city. Check them out here and plan your own little photo tour of the city!
The Czech Republic has a long history of beer brewing. Even if you're not a beer connoisseur, it's worth taking the time to try some of the offerings. They can be quite different than the beers you'll find in Western Europe or the US.
At this popular beer tasting, you'll try everything from pilsners to porters, and learn all about Prague's brewing traditions.
Ready for some spooky fun? Enter the shadowy streets of Prague’s Old Town, and learn about some of the ghosts that haunt the night. You'll visit Gothic churches that are sitll under the spell of the undead, and market squares and graveyards that claim to be haunted to this day.
These guys claim to give the "most accurate" ghost tour of Prague. I don't know whether that's true, but it sure is fun!
Ready for some pure, silly fun? If you're looking for a family-friendly activity, this one is sure to be a hit. Glow Golf is one of Prague's newest attractions.
Play a game of golf under UV lights, and check out the glowing murals inspired by the city's history. There are UV face paints available if you want to get creative! It's getting strangely popular, so be sure to get your tickets ahead of time.
This one-of-a-kind museum is totally worth a stop. It's filled with mind-bending interactive exhibits and optical illusions. You won't spend all day here for sure, but tickets are cheap and it's bursting with fun photo ops!
Prague sure loves to party, and a pub crawl through the city is a fantastic way to meet other travelers that are in town for a good time!
This pub crawl is the one my readers recommend most often. You'll meet at a local pub to start off with an unlimited "power hour", where you'll have your fill beer, wine, absinthe and vodka. You'll move on to visit two more local bars, and then finish out the evening with VIP entrance to the 5 story nightclub Karlovy Lazne.
Yep, you read that right. In Prague, we love our beer so much that we bathe in it.
Beer baths became popular in the Middle Ages, and are said to cleanse the pores, increase circulation, regenerate skin and hair, and revitalize the senses. But don't worry - this beer spa is run by professional practitioners.
Don't you want to tell your friends and family you took a beer bath in Prague?
This fun museum is a great way to get to know Czech beer, which has a rich history in the region. Learn the secrets behind the brewing process, and enjoy tastes of 4 Czech beers. Plus, bottle your own beer with your own label at the end of the visit.
This beautiful Gothic castle is nestled in the charming town of Karlstejn, which is just a short drive from Prague. You can wander the beautiful grounds and take a tour of the historic castle. The scenery alone is worth the drive!
Charles Bridge is a Prague icon - and no trip is complete without a stroll across it. Don't miss the famous sculptures, the museum, or the chance to climb the lookout towers on either side of the bridge!
