Stay in Prague for several weeks and see them all, or go through a quite difficult decision making process and try to pick out the most see-worthy. The following list is here to show you what others have found interesting in the past.
A must-see is the lively Old Town dating back to the 10th century, though a fair warning is that since everybody thinks so, the Old Town Square now belongs to the tourists. You probably won’t see very many Czechs strolling casually down the cobblestone streets and you will inevitably get that touristy feeling. Anyway, the beautiful Romanesque, Gothic and Baroque buildings, such as the Old Town or Jewish Town Hall make up for the crowds of people. Don’t miss the Astronomical Clock in the Old Town Hall’s tower.
Famous Wenceslas Square’s popularity goes well back in time. It was built as a horse market in 1348 and was then still located behind the city’s fortification walls. Five hundred years later it was named in honour of the Bohemian patron saint Věnceslav, Václavské náměstí. In the 1980s it was site to Anti-Communist protests.
Then you might also not want to miss the Jewish cemetery. The oldest tomb stone on this burial ground dates back to 1439. The dead were buried in up to nine layers due to lack of space since the Jewish community through the ages had not been granted the expansion of their cemetery.
The Charles Bridge, built in 1357, is popular to tourists, puppeteers, caricaturists and musicians alike. Around 1700 the bridge was decorated by a continuous alley of thirty for the most part Baroque statues.
Not only for princesses and knights, though certainly something kids will enjoy, is the Prague Castle, Pražský hrad, with its impressive areal. The huge complex complete with a basilica, palaces and small lanes holds a Guinness Book entry as the biggest ancient castle in the world.
Finally, if you have had enough of “old” architecture, visit Fred and Ginger. The battered can shaped Dancing Building of star-architect Frank Gehry’s erected in 1996 is located in Rašínovo nábřeží 80, Vyšehrad, south of the New Town.
