Prague may not be as big a draw as some of the larger cities in Europe, but it’s still a major tourism area worthy of a visit, even for a short three days. Its rich history makes it a popular tourist destination as there are plenty of things to do in Prague
. The city is home to many famous cultural attractions, many of which survived the world wars of the 20th century, including Prague Castle, the Charles Bridge, Old Town Square, the Jewish Quarter, the Lennon Wall, and Petřín hill. It’s also home to over ten major museums, countless theatres, galleries, cinemas, and historic exhibits and great restaurants. If you are planning on visiting this must see city and need a hotel, check out the Jurys Inn Prague
Day 1 Stroll across the Charles Bridge, the top attraction in the city. The bridge, which was completed in 1400, is a blend of Gothic and baroque styles, and is lined with huge and impressive statues. From there, you can find your way to both Old Town and the Jewish Quarter. In Old Town, you’ll be able to see and visit the Town Square, the Town Hall with its famous Astronomical Clock, the Municipal House, the Franz Kafka Exposition, and the State Theatre. The Jewish Quarter, with its Jewish museum (a restored Spanish synagogue with a Moorish-style dome), is located within the Old Town.
Day 2 Perhaps it seems strange, but the Torture Museum is a must-see while you’re in Prague. It’s a unique collection of torture devices as only the Slavs could devise, collected mostly from Eastern Europe. Then go take a break from all the darkness by visiting Bertramka Villa, or the Mozart Museum. Mozart loved Prague, and completed “Don Giovanni” while staying here. Concerts featuring his music regularly occur in the afternoon. Continuing the musical theme, then visit the Smetana Museum, which honors the great Bohemian composer, and then end your day at the Dvorak Museum, the site of which was the master’s home for over twenty years.
Day 3 Another must-see in Prague is the Prague Castle, the largest castle in Europe and an example of exquisite, classical Czech architecture. While there, make sure you visit St. George’s Basilica within the castle complex, as well as the great views of St. Vitus Cathedral. Speaking of Prague’s architecture, feast your eyes on the Frank Gehry’s “Frank and Ginger” building, which flowing, gravity-defying lines were inspired by the dance duo. Then end your day and time in this great city by dining at one of Prague’s famous restaurants.
