  • Prague can be a bit overwhelming for first time visitors - so much to see, cameras rarely stop clicking. If this is your second or third visit, or if you are looking for something not every tourist hits, try visiting one of these Prague landmarks.

    Number one is Charles Bridge, of course, and not a landmark you are likely to see in relative peace. The hours of midnight to 6am though are usually calm. Again, it is everyone's must-see, and we have to recommend it as well the Astronomical Clock and Old Town Hall. Prague has a rich Jewish history and visiting the Jewish Museum is a worthwhile afternoon. Both the Old New Synagogue and Old Jewish Cemetery are historically important and moving places to see. While visiting Prague Castle, be sure also to see the Loreto.

    Czech Cubism is am amazing design style and one of the best architectural examples is the House of the Black Madonna. Inside is the Cubism Museum, don't skip it if you are into art and design. Take a walk along the river and gaze up at Tancici Dum, or the Dancing House. One of Prague's most famous modern buildings, it's a dominant landmark on the streetscape. The gorgeous Baroque Klementinum library has amazing frescoed ceilings while the climb to the tower is worth it for the views.

    Ease yourself out of the center, first by heading to Vysehrad, and wandering through their amazing cemetery. How often do you get to say, "I went to a really cool cemetery?" In summer time, take tram 22 to Hvezda, a former game preserve and now one of the city's best parks. In the middle, you'll find a fascinating star-shaped building, which now houses permanent and temporary historic and literary exhibitions.
