One of the reasons Prague is such an amazing place to visit is its rich history on display. Of course you will see it in the architectural changes as you wander about town, but here are some suggestions for additional stops that will make your stay a bit more historically rich.
Let's start with the really old stuff. The Charles Bridge Museum will get you deep into Prague's most notable landmark. For a broader overview of the city, including a miniature model of it, hit the Museum of the City of Prague. To see where some of the country's most notable composers, artist, writers and other are buried, head up to the beautiful Vysehrad Cemetery. Taking in a concert at Stavovske Divadlo is a great place to soak up Prague's musical history - this is where Mozart premiered his famed opera Don Giovanni. A visit to the Josefov quarter and the Old New Synagogue will give you a glimpse into the city's fascinating Jewish history.
Going a bit modern, the exhibition at the National Memorial on Vitkov Hill is dedicated to Czechoslovak history. World War II buffs should visit National Memorial to the Victims of the Heydrich Terror while time permitting, everyone should take a day trip to Terezin. Finally, for a glimpse into the city's most recent history, seek out the Museum of Communism.
