Prague is a magical city and you need a lot more than 24 hours to soak it in, but when you’re limited on time or on a short trip you can squeeze quite a lot into a day. So, the question is, what to do and what to start with?
Fuel your energy with a big breakfast at Café Savoy by the riverbank. They serve classic egg-breakfasts, good pastries and it is in a classic Czechoslovak room.
Mala Strana and Prague Castle:
From breakfast make your way through Kampa park, across the Charles Bridge and to Malostranske Namesti. Continue up Nerudova street. This will take you to the castle grounds. You can explore this area for a while, so, take all the time you need. Authentic tip: go to “Novy Svet” street (directly translates to new world), it is a magical street and makes you a unique tourist.
Make your way down to Mala Strana to find Cukrhavalimonada, a cute café district around the corner from the Lennon wall. They serve a range of pancakes, smoothies and light meals. Perfect for a quick lunch stop
One of my favorite activities, walk to Zofin island. There are lots of vendors. You can take them out for an hour and enjoy the amazing views.
Afternoon coffee and cake
A great location for coffee is IF café in Werichova Vila on the Kampa Park. It's a new café but best cake in town! Another good place is Café Café right by Mustek or Tricafe by the riverbank.
Last but not least, you must make your way to Old Town Square, it is a must-see in Prague. It is worth climbing up the Astronomical Clock tower as the views are amazing. You can spend the evening roaming around the pretty streets around like Pariska and Dlouha.
More of a beer kind of person? Best place is the Letna Beer Gardens
It has superb views over the city, a good choice of beer at good prices and above all a great atmosphere!
Since you’re in the old town, my favorites are Pasta Fresca and Pizza Nuova, both serve great, fresh Italian food – you can’t go wrong with them! If you’re in need of some post-dinner gelato, stop by Angelato, for the just the best ice-cream in town
Prague is gorgeous at night so you’ll want to roam around the city a bit longer to see the nightlife atmosphere. Prague has a big bar scene; people tend to hop around from one to the other over the night. A couple of my favorites are Balcony bar, Café 80s, Al Capones, Prosekarna, Popocafepetl, Groove Bar and Cobra. The bars are all over town so pick out a few, or just roam around – a great way to explore more of Prague.
