Seeing the tiled roofs and walking the King’s Way, drinking delicious beer, eating Horseshoe Knee and going to Kutna Hora are all things you can do in a short weekend in Prague. You can go on your own or with a tour – it will be inexpensive, especially in the low season.
When to go to Prague
An important question – when to go to the capital of the Czech Republic. Optimal weather for walking – in late spring, early and late summer, as well as in early fall. Everything blooms beautifully in the spring and everything turns beautifully yellow in the fall. In summer it is too hot and a lot of tourists. Prague is also good in the winter holidays: you will see Christmas fairs, Christmas illuminations and snow if you are lucky.
We went to Prague at the end of November. We were lucky with the weather: it was sunny and clear, but cold. If you dress warmly and match the dry period, you can have a great time in the low season.

What to see and do at the weekend in Prague
If this is your first trip to Prague, take a walk through the top spots – here’s a 2-3 day program:
- see Old Town Square;
- Visit the Charles Bridge at dawn;
- explore Prague Castle and Hradcany;
- Take a walk through the Old Town and the Jewish Quarter.
You can imagine how many people will be in these places, and even more so on a weekend. We recommend getting there as early as possible.
Sightseeing sites. A must for romantics and photographers. There are a lot of viewpoints, the views are great. Good locations are at the Prague Castle, Vyšehrad, Petřín, gardens and parks.
Museums. There are both classic – for example, the National Museum or the Mucha Museum – and non-traditional: the KGB Museum, the Museum of Sex. Free museums in Prague →
Streets and houses. They are good in Malá Strana: the streets are narrow, crooked, beautiful, and the houses are colorful.
Ordinary residential neighborhoods. It’s our favorite thing to walk through ordinary neighborhoods where there are no tourists and observe. Tranquility, silence, great beer gardens and beautiful houses are in the neighborhoods of Žižkov, Nové Město, Vinohrady.
Other cities. In addition to the bustling Prague is nice to go for a day in Kutna Hora, Cesky Krumlov, Karlovy Vary, Loket, Krusovice or another city in the Czech Republic. For example, my most vivid memory from my entire trip to the Czech Republic is a trip to Kutna Hora.
We have a detailed plan of the trip to Prague for 7 days – choose from there the most interesting places and visit! Enough for several weekends.

It’s evening, you’ve visited all the planned attractions and are very tired. What to do on a weekend in Prague, how to relax?
Have a beer and eat a knuckle. In the evenings, tourists and locals alike settle in the many beer gardens. We also settled in the beloved U Járy beer hall in Žižkov. Cozy, inexpensive and delicious.
Visit the restaurant. Czechs love to eat, and some tourists even come to the city solely for the cuisine. Choose a national restaurant based on reviews and enjoy. Be warned: the portions are large.
Listen to a concert. Touch the beauty! The city’s churches and cathedrals have excellent acoustics and often host classical music concerts. I read that the best acoustics are in the Basilica of St. George (Bazilika svatého Jiří) at Prague Castle, as the hall is almost empty. We did not attend the concert and now regret it.
Go to a theater. In Prague everywhere we met signs divadlo – theater. The most popular among tourists are black theaters, or theaters of light and shadows.
Our tips and reviews of tourists
There is an impression that Russians love the capital of the Czech Republic pathological and laid at a genetic level. No matter how many reviews we read, they are always rapturous: everyone confesses his love for the city and promises fidelity to the grave. We have not experienced such raptures (well, maybe only about the food and beer), because we had inflated expectations. In general, however, liked the city.
