Prague is known as a fairytale city, thanks to its storied churches, narrow streets, daunting hilltop castle and statue-lined bridges. This stunning, yet affordable capital city is full of gothic and renaissance architecture, many museums, baroque style churches and bridges, art nouveau buildings and medieval streets. Well, there is so much to see! But if you are visiting Prague just for one day, there is what you have to do.
This UNESCO monument and one of the most important cultural institutions in the Czech Republic, was built in the 9th century. Prague Castle is the largest castle complex in the world, that consists of a large-scale composition of palaces and ecclesiastical buildings of various architectural styles, from the remains of Romanesque-style buildings from the 10th century through Gothic modifications of the 14th century. It has really interesting history, so if you want to get the most of your visit, we definitely recommend Prague Castle tours.
One of the world's oldest fully functional astronomical clocks, that not only tells the time, the date, shows astronomical and zodiacal information, but also provides some theatre, because when the clock strikes the hour (from 9.00 a.m. to 11.00 p.m.), the procession of the Twelve Apostles sets in motion. It is located in Prague Old Town, the oldest and the most beautiful neighborhood in the city, full of narrow cobblestone streets forming a maze full of colorful buildings, gothic architecture, cafes, restaurants, designer shops and galleries. Enjoy it the most with our Prague Old Town tours and Astronomical Clock tours.
This stone Gothic bridge, one of the most famous in the world, is 516 meters long, 9.5 meters wide, 13 meters high, stands on 15 pillars and decorated by a continuous alley of 30 statues and statuaries, most of them Baroque-style. To see them all and hear some interesting facts about them, check out our Charles Bridge tours!
If you want to see some of the modern architecture, you should definitely visit this pillar of modern architecture in Prague, located at Rašínovo Embankment. It is surrounded by Baroque, Gothic and Art Nouveau buildings, so this non-traditional design building stands out somewhat. Inside you can find office premises, a restaurant, a gallery, a conference centre and a sightseeing terrace on top of it, from which you can overlook the breathtaking panorama of Prague. Check out our Prague Dancing House tours to not only see the building from outside, but also from inside!
