Pruhonice Park

Pruhonice Park and Castle, classified as part of the Historic Centre of Prague - UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1992, is one of the crown jewels of the Czech Republic's national historical parks and an exceptional example of a European landscape park of this style. Covering an area of approximately 250 hectares, the park has a privileged location just 15 kilometres southeast of Prague, making it easily accessible and a perfect destination for either a sunny afternoon or a long weekend.

A very nice park with multiple entrances and car parks. You can walk for miles without using the same path. Many ponds and trees providing the desired shade on a hot day.

FunPark Zirafa

Reviewed By SaniHadek - Prague, Czech Republic

A great choice to keep your kids busy, amused and happy, not matter their age, especially on cold/rainy days. The price adds up if you have more than one kid, but the place also seems to offer happy hours with a cheaper price. The indoor park is huge, lots of options for little and big kids. You can spend the whole day there (if you as a parent can stand the noise!!). The only down point is the food on offer, nothing even health-ish for kids, only junk food. They do have a restaurant, but we didn't try, perhaps they have something better there.

Billiard Coffee

Reviewed By Tereza K - Prague, Czech Republic

Tento podnik je otevřený jen chvilinku, takže na Vás sálá čistota a novota už při vstupu. Do Mnichovic jezdí vlak, takže super spoj.
Barmani jsou velmi milí a ochotní. O zábavu máte postaráno díky kulečníku, šipkám nebo fotbálku. Vše je velmi cenově přijatelné, a Kozel 12ka je TOP! Málo kde tohle pivo najdete a ještě jen za pár Kč. Určitě se rádi vrátíme, až se o tomto podniku dozví více lidí, snad bude kde sednout :-)

Old Town Square

The most significant square of historical Prague, it was founded in the 12th century and has been witness to many historical events. In addition to the Old Town Hall and the Church of Our Lady before Týn, the square is dominated by the Baroque Church of St Nicholas, the Rococo Kinský Palace, the Gothic House at the Stone Bell and the monument to Jan Hus. In the pavement of the square are memorial stones marking the execution of 27 Czech lords in 1621, and the Prague meridian.

Spent the afternoon in the square going to a couple of places including the churches at each end. Beautiful churches and worth a look even if you are not religious. People were getting ready for the Easter celebrations and there were people from lots of other countries visiting at the time we were there. Everyone was friendly even though the square was very busy at the time. Lots of little winding streets off the square equally worth visiting. Plenty of places to eat though they were a bit dear and I don't like the 'suggested tip value'. If you deserve it you will get a tip is my philosophy.

Memorial of Josef Lada

Reviewed By Hengist002 - Kent

Fortunately we were being taken around by Czech friends, otherwise it might be difficult to find this extraordinary little house (museum) some 20k outside Prague (nearest station is probably Ricany). The drawings, cartoons and illustrations are magical. Lada damaged an eye as a child and his work has a flat perspective but that's what makes it so appealing.

Dendrologicka zahrada

Reviewed By Marie B - Prague, Czech Republic

You will be delighted in this great garden/park. In spring there are thousands of tulips and daffodils and today, on 9 September, we were fascinated by big long beds of dahlias in every possible yellowish, orangy, reddish and white shades. You can walk several kilometres in this garden on the lawns, alongside a lake or on a 'celtic' hill with standing stones (this is artificial, of course). Another attraction is a small lake with water lillies and red fish and heather fields nearby. There is a restaurant with refreshments too, and some nice Playgrounds with wooden attractions. Some people enjoy picnicking there too. The garden is, unfortunately, closed in winter. The entrance fees are very affordable.

Charles Bridge

Connecting the Old town with Lesser Town, this popular pedestrian bridge is filled with musicians, painters, vendors and tourists during the summertime.

Reviewed By Smurf52 - New Mexico

Yes, Charles Bridge is a perfectly preserved bit of Prague history. It is a wonderful walk from the city center and the a great way to spend a good part of the day strolling through the picturesque city.
So, grab some comfortable shoes, dress for the weather, run through the souvenir shop gauntlet, and enjoy this beautiful artifact.

Old Town Hall with Astronomical Clock

The Old Town Hall is one of the most significant monuments in the Czech Republic. It was established in 1338 as the administrative seat for Prague's Old Town. Now, it is mainly used for the ceremonial purposes of the capital city, Prague. The historical town hall consists of a set of five medieval houses, the corner of which is adorned with a historical astronomical clock, a gothic oriel window and a massive rectangular tower. The lookout gallery on the town hall tower offers the most beautiful view of Prague. A tour of the historical halls in the Old Town Hall is a unique experience. The expensively decorated rooms date from various periods and are examples of the remarkable development of the town hall complex. The guided tours in various languages are organised in hourly intervals.

We had heard so much about this amazing clock so arrived early to see the dance of the vices! What do you know it was covered in canvas needing repair. We got to see the print of the clock and our guide described the mechanism and advised us to come back in August!
