“A Hundred Spires” Is Prague known by this name? Splendid!!!

With all the perfect reasons, Prague is known as 'The City of a Hundred Spires'. Those that have travelled to Prague are aware of the enchantment of the stunning buildings and the iconic historical sites dotted all over the city.

If you are looking for a European city soaked in history and displays architectural wonders, Prague is second to none. From markets to music, parks to pubs, tea to tours and coffee to cathedrals, we have brought you the insiders' scoop from several locals on the best 'off-beat' things one can experience. With cheap city breaks to Europe, get ready to explore the Czech beauty like a local.

Explore a hidden park, Vojanovy Sady in central Prague. This unique spot is nearby Lesser Town Square and the famous Wallenstein Gardens. Relax in a serene and lush environment among a group of peacocks.

Most tourists have enjoyed long walks of 6-7 miles or more. The walk is, of course, rewarding as you come across stylish cafes, amazing boutiques, and several vendors graced with their smiles.

Heard that famous song by Boney M, 'By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down.' Well, you can do that in Prague too. Cherish riverside moments with a beer at Bajkazyl. As the sun goes down, the silence of the dusk is beautified with some music.

Prague is loved because of its amazing parks. Stromovka is everyone's favourite. It is just 10 minutes from Rudolfova Stola and Maroldovo Panorama. Go there for refreshing strolls and feeding ducks.

Whether you are here for holidays or business, make sure you visit Choco Cafe, a chocolate factory serving more than 45 flavours of chocolates. Chili Chocolate tops the list of being the favourite.

Soak up the stunning views of Prague with some mouth-watering food and drinks from Nebozizek. There is a grotto nearby, so make sure you visit it as you enjoy cheap last minute city breaks in Prague.

All enjoy meeting with friends for a beer and gossip. The 400-year old basement pub is the hotspot for all beer lovers. Enjoy chilling out, laughing and spilling out.

If its summer, you need to be in Naplavka to relish some freshly made beer or juice and let the cool breeze from the river refresh your soul and senses. The bands playing there will entertain you with some great music.

During summer, fill up some cookies, wine and your guitar and advance towards the greenery of Riegrovy Sady to witness people, enjoy music, and admire the sunset over the imposing Prague castle.

Rent a bike or even rollerblades and head to Stromovka for some thrilling activities with the locals. Additionally, relax on the beach chair or a bean bag and enjoying sipping beer. During winters, sip mulled wine and enjoy a 10-minute tram ride to Charles Bridge.

 

If you are all for history and architecture, begin exploring Prague atop Wenceslas Square and watch the city change colours. Next, you can visit the Old Town Square passing Mustek. Get the vibe of the energy Prague emits. Sit on the street bench and see the crowd pass by over the cobblestone streets. The tranquil Vltava River is an amazing place to spend a day and engage in a conversation with one of the locals. If you are not tired, head towards the ever-trendy Parizska Street and go shopping if you wish.

Coffee is Prague is heaven. Relish early morning coffee while you enjoy a walk through the Farmer's Market and capture mesmerising shots.

If walking is the best way to explore Prague, biking is the second best option. Get on the eastern bank trail beside the Vltava River and keep biking as long as you can. You can also change your direction and wander off towards the Prague Zoo, turning north towards Germany.

If you love to visit farms, probably you can try visiting the Farmer's Market at Jiriho z Podebrad and enjoy a warm drink with the kids.

The Atrium is Prague's secret. Witness classical concerts and other performers from all over Europe. It is a promising platform for budding artists.

There is much more that you can enjoy and explore with Prague holidays. The city can be visited when the climate is mild during the springs. Airfares tend to be cheap between March and April. Winters are quite frigid with snowfall. If you are brave enough to withstand the cold, you will be able to enjoy the gleaming European city with a layer of fresh snow.

 

Summary

Located on nine hills, beside the Vltava River, Prague offers everything from romantic spots to historical tours, but once you scratch the surface, there are endless off-beat things to do in the city.
