The Best 2 Day Itinerary Prague
Day 1 - Old Meets New
On your first day in Prague, explore the contrasts the city has to offer. Gothic churches and cathedrals dating back to the 14th century meet modern architecture like the Dancing House.
The Old Town
Prague’s old town, or Stare Mesto, is the heart and soul of the city. Preserving more than a thousand years of history within its walls, it has become a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The main square’s famous attraction is the Astronomical Clock and its hourly show. Legend has it that Prague officials were so proud of this clock, that they burned out the clockmaker’s eyes to prevent him from creating another one.
One of the most eye-catching pieces of architecture in Prague is the Dancing House, a collaboration between Canadian and Czech architects.
Symbolizing balance, and yin and yang, it highlights the coming together of communism and democracy.
The Jewish Quarter
The Jewish Quarter in Prague is one of the only neighbourhoods in Europe that has not been destroyed by Hitler in the war. His plan was to retire to Prague and turn the district into a museum.
Luckily he failed, and today the quarter is a protected UNESCO site. It features a museum, a cemetery, the Jubilee, and a beautiful Spanish synagogue with Moorish interior!
Day 2 - Castles And Palaces
Spend the 2nd day of your 2 day itinerary in Prague on the opposite side of the river, exploring the huge Prague Castle, its gardens, and the romantic Mala Strana district.
Mala Strana is a beautiful neighbourhood on the hillside river banks. Full of bright coloured houses and elegant gardens, Mala Strana is one of the must-sees in Prague.
Located in this neighbourhood is the famous Lennon Wall, covered in beautiful graffiti, honouring John Lennon and his stand for pacifism. Today, hundreds of political art pieces and slogans cover the wall, spreading peace and love.
Charles Bridge, a charming cobble stone bridge across the Vltava river, connects the old town with the castle, and Mala Strana neighbourhood.
Built in 1357, the Charles Bridge features 30 statues that represent saints from Czech history. Today, it’s full of artists and musicians.
Officially recognized by the Guiness Book of World Records because of its size, Prague castle is one of the largest in the world.
Visit the Royal Palace dating back to 1135, where Kings and Queens used to reign.
Explore St. Vitus Cathedral with its many different architectural styles, influenced by 600 years of construction.
Walk along Golden Lane, a street of brightly coloured houses named after the goldsmiths who lived there.
