Things to do in Prague

When thinking about what to do in Prague, the hardest part is finding the time to do it all. Among the many things to do in Prague, the most obvious is to enjoy a pleasant stroll through the Old Town streets, not forgetting the Charles Bridge, considered by many as one of the most beautiful bridges in the world. Adorned with statues, the Charles Bridge offers a gorgeous view of the river, the city's many towers and the Malá German district. When asked what to do in Prague, locals will often refer tourists to the Astronomical clock. The medieval, working clock was installed in 1410 and put on a show at the top of every hour. Architecture lovers should make a point to visit the Dancing House. Designed to look as if it defying all gravitational pulls, this home was built by famed architect Frank Gehry in 1996. Then make your way over to the Petrin Watchtower, located in Petrin Park. Known as the “little Eiffel Tower,” visiting this structure is one of the top things to do in Prague. The Sedlec Ossuary cannot be missed. This Roman Catholic chapel is decorated with the bones of an estimated 40 thousand human skeletons. Though you may leave a bit spooked, it’s a spectacular sight worth seeing at least once.
