Prague is an easy city to get around in, especially in the center, which is relatively small and compact. The Prague metro consists of three lines and 41 stops and runs from 5 AM to midnight.
A romantic way to explore Prague is by horse-drawn carriage. Especially at night, the beautifully lit streets provide a ghostly experience. In Prague, it is also nice to rent bicycles and visit the city together on this two-wheeler.
The beautiful gothic Charles Bridge cannot be missed in Prague and is a must see. The bridge crosses the Vltava River. On either side of the bridge are statues of saints dating from the 18th and 19th centuries. There is a nice and cozy atmosphere. Artists paint and draw, street musicians make music and the bridge is only accessible to pedestrians. Even in the evening, it is romantic to walk there and the view of the city is not inferior to the beautiful Paris.
Staroměstské náměstí, Prague's Old Town Square, is one of the best-preserved town squares in Europe. It is always pleasantly busy with both locals and tourists. Events are also regularly held here, such as a large Christmas market in December. The square is surrounded by imposing buildings in different styles. You will find a number of churches and statues and large buildings with colorful facades full of details. This Old Town Square was built about 700 years ago and, along with the rest of the historic center of Prague, it has been on the UNESCO World Heritage List for quite some time.
Visit the romantic Kampa island
Kampa Island is located near the Malá Strana district, but it is separated from the mainland by a narrow channel. It is a relatively quiet island, but it is very cozy and atmospheric. You will find nice cafes and restaurants everywhere, especially on the Na Kampe square. When you walk a little further, you come to a small park full of cozy terraces. From this park you have a nice view of the river and the old town.
Climb the Eiffel Tower of Prague for a great view
Did you know that Prague has its own Eiffel Tower? A mini replica of this tower was built on top of Petrin Hill in 1891. For 100 CZK (€3.70) you can climb the 299 steps of the Petrín Tower. From the top you have a great 360 degree view of the city. If you want to enjoy the view in the evening, keep in mind that in the summer months you can enter the tower until 9:30 PM at the latest. In winter, last admission is at 7:30 PM. The tower will remain open a little longer, so that you can still climb to the top and have enough time to enjoy the view over the city.
Discover the Venice of Prague and cruise the Vltava
It is definitely recommended to also explore Prague from the water. One of the most beautiful parts is the channel between Kampa Island and Malá Strana. This atmospheric district is also called the Venice of Prague. A boat trip on the rest of the Vltava is also really worthwhile. Along the way, you'll see all kinds of highlights, such as the Charles Bridge and Prague Castle. There are good options for a romantic boat cruise.
Where you can eat tasty and cheap in Prague is Sad Man's Tongue Bar & Bistro. International meals are served, but the burgers are especially known here. The menu is full of richly filled burgers or other meals with which you can fill your belly. Every week there is live music, which makes your evening even more fun and romantic than it already is! Would you rather go for Italian? Then go to Da Tarquinio. A cheap, but delicious restaurant where they make the Italian food themselves.
