How to Spend 1 Day in Prague

How to Spend 1 Day in Prague

With its whimsical medieval architecture, hilltop castle, and baroque statue-studded Charles Bridge, Prague is one of Europe’s prettiest cities. It’s also blessed by a fascinating history, rich arts scene, and great beer. With only one day in town you’ll want to experience as much as possible, so here’s how to make the most of 24 hours in Prague.

Morning: See the Sights

Prague’s network of cobblestone streets and hidden courtyards makes it a pleasure to explore on foot. To catch all of the city’s top sights, join a small-group walking tour that leads you through the main areas of interest, such as Old Town Square, Wenceslas Square, and the Jewish Quarter. Some tours include lunch at a traditional Old Town restaurant and a river cruise along the Vltava. Alternatively, Segway, bicycle, and e-scooter tours reveal more in less time. A hop-on hop-off bus tour is ideal for travelers who want some more flexibility than an organized group tour: get off at any point of interest along the route and spend as long as you like there.

Afternoon: Behold Prague Castle

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Prague Castle’s complex of museums, churches, palaces, and gardens is the largest castle complex in the world—and is well deserving of a focused visit. If you want to tour the castle independently, skip-the-line tickets ensure you don’t waste precious time in long lines. Guided walking tours provide in-depth information about the castle’s history and architecture. Alternatively, booking a full-day private guided tour of Prague that allows you to customize your itinerary means you can spend as long as you’d like at the castle, between visiting other attractions.

Night: Cruise the Vltava River

Boat trips along the Vltava are available throughout the day, but an evening cruise benefits from the beauty of Prague’s buildings being illuminated after dark—the floodlit Prague Castle is a particularly lovely sight. Pick a cruise that includes dinner for a fully immersive (and romantic) experience; some also include live music. Alternatively, you can spend your evening sampling some of Prague’s best brews on a beer-tasting tour, or enjoying traditional Czech song and dance at a folklore dinner.
