Prague in 24 Hours

Prague is the perfect city to spend a day exploring. I was able to spend five days in Prague, but to be honest the main sights can all be accomplished in a day, which is something to really love about Prague. Prague is a city for wandering and getting lost in. Don’t plan to do much here but enjoy your time strolling the medieval cobblestone streets. It is the perfect romantic picturesque getaway. However, for 24 hours I’ll show you where to stay, what to eat, and the best sights to see. Because 24 hours, is all you really need.

Spálená 79/10, Nové Město, 110 00 Praha-Praha 1, Czech Republic

If you’re looking for a relaxing and charming place to stay in the city, look no further. This Airbnb is one of the best I’ve ever stayed in. Get ready for the warmest of welcomes from your host Mike, who owns this charming flat that was once an attic. Fully renovated and furnished with dozens of antiques from the Czechoslovak Republic, it gives this flat an old world charm with modern conveniences you’re sure to enjoy!

EMA Espresso Bar

After a night’s rest, your fist stop should be EMA Espresso Bar for an exceptional coffee and hip atmosphere. Reminiscent of Australian design, you’ll be head over heels for their wood decor and minimalist style. Beautiful natural light provides the perfect captures for Instagram! Try a cappuccino or make your own americano to kick start your day.

Insider Tip: Use the restroom up top and grab some areal photos of EMA on your way down the stairs.

Main Square & the Astronomical Clock

First stop of the day is the main square in old town Prague. This large square is full of charming old buildings and tourists enjoying food and traditional Czech beer. Once you get to the Astronomical Clock, buy a ticket and climb to the top. Here you will have absolutely stunning views of Prague’s old town and beyond. This makes for fantastic photos.

Good Food Coffee & Bakery

Next you’ll be on your way to the Charles Bridge, but not without a much needed snack stop along the way. And by snack, I mean a delicious staple of Prague desserts known as the trdelnik! Do NOT ask me how to pronounce this. In fact, don’t ask questions at all, JUST EAT. Good Food Coffee & Bakery is known to have the best trdelnik and I recommend getting the ‘blizzard’. This is conveniently located on the way to Charles Bridge.

Charles Bridge (Karlův most)

Walking along this iconic bridge that is a staple of Prague will give you a new appreciation for the city. Take your time and marvel at the architecture and statues that line the bridge. There really is no bridge like it in the world. Charles Bridge will also take you to what’s known as the ‘lesser quarter’ of Prague, which should be your next destination!

Insider Tip: Don’t forget to rub the plaques on the 8th statue on the right as you cross the bridge. Legend says it will bring you good luck and a possible return visit to Prague!

Prague Castle (Pražský hrad)

Prague Castle is the largest ancient castle in the world and it dates back to the 9th century. You will not regret visiting this beautiful place and it is a must for history buffs. Here you can purchase a ticket in to castle where there are eleven or so different buildings you will have access to. Make sure you allow at least a few hours to walk through, and take a lunch break at one of the vendors selling sausages.

St. Vitus Cathedral

Located inside Prague Castle, this is a must visit. This cathedral completely gives the Notre Dame a run for its money as one of the most beautiful sights you will ever witness. Don’t forget to look up or you might miss the beautiful leaks of light through the windows. My favorite part of capturing photos here.

U Kroka

After a long day of adventuring stop for dinner in Prauge 2 at U Kroka. This modern Czech restaurant will give you a taste of traditional Czech food with a comforting fresh twist. The presentation will make you feel like you’re in a top notch restaurant, but the price won’t even come close to breaking the bank. I suggest ordering any one of the meat dishes at U Kroka. Everything is delicious!

Insider Tip: Use Uber to get here as it is farther away near Prague 4. Yes, Uber exists in the Czech Republic!

As your 24 hours comes to a close, relax back at Mike’s place with some cheese (and wine if you have it) from La Formaggeria Gran Moravia directly across the street. Don’t let the name fool you, there is nothing Italian about this place and you’ll find a large selection of Czech cheeses to munch on.

If you’re lucky enough to have more than 24 hours in Prague, you can either space this list out more, or you can get all the tourist attractions done in one day and then relax on the rest of your trip. Prague is a lovely city to get lost in, don’t you agree? Happy travels!

    Oh my gosh, that AirBNB is SO cute! I was also in Prague for 24 hours but it was at the beginning of January and the snow made it a little tougher to explore. It’s such a beautiful city, your photos make me excited to return!

      Oh man, winter is probably so beautiful there! I’m sure very cold though. Even in April I was pretty freezing at times haha. Definitely stay in that Airbnb next time you return! It’s incredible and makes you feel right at home.

    I don’t think I could spend just 24 hours in Prague! There is too much to see yet you managed to see so much! The castle and cathedral looks beautiful! Almost medieval I would say. I hope you had a wonderful time <3

      Thank you, I did! There is a lot to see for sure, but it’s not as bad as Paris or London. I could never only spend 24 hours in those cities haha. But I would definitely recommend more time in Prague if you have it to spare! 😉
