Top Things to Do in Prague, Czech Republic


Prague is a beautiful city with cobblestone streets, clean façade baroque architecture, excellent restaurants, great coffee, and a charming melee of fairy-tale buildings and orange hued street lanterns.


Prague is known for its iconic sites such as the Astronomical Clock, Old Town Square, Prazsky hard (Prague Castle), beer made by monks in a monastery, beer baths, and a plethora of famous artists and authors such as Milan Kundera and Frank Kafka (a giant 11-metre-high Kafka statue is a must-see).


Whilst I was there, I wandered across the beautiful Charles Bridge, walked through the incredible animal displays within the Czech National Museum in Wenceslas Square, strolled along Pařížská Street to window shop at Gucci and Louis Vuitton, and I indulged in incredible food and speciality coffee.


Only a 1 hour 45 minutes flight from London, Prague is a top destination for a weekend away.


Here are the top 6 things I recommend…


The Alchymist Grand Hotel and Spa


The Alchymist is one of the most magical places and you can’t believe it exists. Up the hill on a cobble stone street, minutes away from a castle, rests this wonderful baroque stone structure containing 46 beautiful rooms. Located in the Mala Strana area right next to the American Embassy, this place once housed four former bourgeoise houses and it is now one of the most gorgeous boutique hotels I have ever visited.


The interior design is keeping with the baroque style with hues of maroon and faded yellow, four poster beds, chandeliers, and marble bathrooms.


The lovely receptionist greets you with their own brand of champagne upon arrival, which they offer alongside cheeses every day at 4pm. You can specially order treats for your room from homemade pralines, chocolate covered strawberries, rose petals, bouquets, a birthday cake, martini set, and much more.


The in-house Ecsotica Spa has an Indonesian feel with a wooden bridge that leads you over a pond of fish to treatment rooms, pool, and steam rooms.


There is in-house dining at The Aquarius restaurant which offers international dishes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The hotel also operates “the best Neapolitan Pizza place in Prague” on the same street called San Carlo.


The Alchymist might be the most romantic hotel you have ever been to, and I highly recommend it.

Super Tramp Coffee


Super Tramp is a hidden gem coffee shop that is so hidden, you might just miss it! Down a dark alley way that leads into a courtyard, Super Tramp is in a ramshackle place that feels artsy where delicious coffee is served to you in Japanese style mugs.
