What to see and do in Prague

Prague is also full of sites to visit and explore. Here are some popular attractions to round out your trip, again from Skyscanner's listings.

The Charles Bridge (Karlův most)

First up is The Charles Bridge. Joining the Lesser Side with Old Town, the Charles bridge is famously the best spot for viewing the Prague Castle.

Thousands of people traverse this cobbled bridge every year in search of magic, bohemia and possibly the good-luck plaque at the 16th statue. Find street performers, vendors and a pleasant view of the city and Prague Castle from this iconic eastern European landmark.

Old Town Square (Staroměstské nám.)

Then, there's Old Town Square, the oldest and most populated square in this historic city.

While there are a number of architectural styles that can be seen throughout the space, the dominating figure is the Church of Our Lady before Tyn, a massive Gothic structure completed in the 15th century. Visitors can also check out the astronomical clock, the Jan Hus Memorial and the baroque St. Nicholas Church. 

"The buildings surrounding this plaza are glorious and will make your visit awe inspiring. It is beautiful — let alone a great tourist attraction," wrote visitor Schel. 

Prague Castle (Prague 11908)

Lastly, spend some time at Prague Castle.

The former royal compound is actually a series of castles, with a cathedral and several gardens and plazas at the center. If you visit during the day, make sure to catch the changing of the guard, which occurs every hour (the most spectacular of which takes place at noon).
