So much to do, so little time! During your stay in Prague, check out these attractions. They all offer something different, and unfortunately, many visitors skip them. The Castle and the Bridge are great, but explore the city more with these attractions.
Prague has no shortage of museums, but Veletrzni Palace and the Museum of Communism are two a bit off the beaten path. Veletrzni Palace is the National Gallery's contemporary art branch and at the Museum of Communism you'll get an in depth overview of the country's 40 years of Communist control.
Up on Petrin Hill in Mala Strana; be sure to put your legs to the test by climbing the Petrin Hill Observation Tower. Super views will be your reward. Nearby is the Mirror Maze where you can have a bit of goofy fun. For an industrial glimpse of Prague, with a nice beer at the end, tour the Staropramen Brewery. The Havelska Street Market is the closest thing, center city, to a vegetable market, even though there seem to be more souvenir vendors then vegetables.
Summer time is a great time to explore Prague's beach. Yep, Žluté Lázně Park offers a variety of swim and sun opportunities on the banks of the Vltava. It can be kitsch; however Krizik Fountain can also be entertaining. A variety of musical performances coordinated with a colored, dancing water show. Occasionally they have dancers and other performers too.
And finally to explore some architecture more in depth check out the Klementinum with its beautiful frescoed ceilings and view tower, as well as the passages of the Lucerna complex.
