Most Instagrammable Things to See and Do in Prague
Prague is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe and sees thousands of tourists every year. When traveling, I always like to scout out the best places to take travel photos, which is why I compiled my favorite most Instagrammable things to see and do in Prague in this post for you!
Cross Charles Bridge
Charles Bridge is an iconic stone Gothic bridge that connects the Old Town and Lesser Town of Prague. It’s characterized by the 30 statues that decorate the bridge. Charles Bridge also has a tower on each end that you can climb up.
Tip: The bridge is extremely crowded during the day. To get a shot with none or few people in it, you should head here right before sunset at around 6 AM.
Munch on Delicious Trdelník Chimney Cake Ice Cream
Trdelník is a kind of spit cake made from rolled dough that is wrapped around a stick, then grilled and topped with sugar and walnut mix. It’s extremely popular in Prague, but also in Austria, Slovakia, Hungary and Romania.
Tip: There are many places where you can get this delicious treat, but my favorite has to be Good Food Cafe right next to the Charles Bridge.
Explore Baroque Art at Vrtba Garden
This is a true hidden gem located close to Prague Castle on the Lesser Town side of the city. Vrtba is a High Baroque garden created in the 1700s. Because of its old age and beauty, it was even listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Tip: Guests staying at the beautiful Aria Hotel Prague get free access to Vrtba Garden and can even enter after official admission hours. For special moments, Aria Hotel even allows you to book a private dinner for two here.
Get Magical Views at CODA Rooftop
A real treat when in Prague is the stunning rooftop terrace at CODA restaurant at the Aria Hotel Prague.
Tip: Only about 30 people can be seated here, so be sure to make a reservation before you go!
Stand in Awe at Old Town Square
There’s no other town square quite like the stunningly beautiful Old Town Square of Prague. The square is famous for its many historic buildings, such as the Gothic Church of Our Lady before Týn, which has been the main church of this part of the city since the 14th century. The world-famous Prague Orloj, a medieval astronomical clock mounted on the Old Town Hall, is another gem here. The clock was first installed in 1410, making it the third-oldest astronomical clock in the world and the oldest one still in operation.
Tip: Head here early in the morning to take advantage of the amazing light and few people walking around.
Prague’s Jewish Quarter
The Jewish Quarter, also referred to as Josefov, is one of the largest and most beautiful districts of Jewish history. It includes several beautiful sites, such as the Jewish Town Hall, the Old Jewish Cemetery, the Jewish Ceremonial Hall, various notable synagogues and even the birthplace of Franz Kafka, a German-speaking Bohemian Jewish novelist and short story writer, widely regarded as one of the major figures of 20th-century literature.
Tip: Be respectful and only take photographs where allowed.
Stroll Along River Vltava
Vltava is the longest river within the Czech Republic and divides the city of Prague. The most picturesque side of the river is probably the east side as you’ll have beautiful views of the Charles Bridge and Prague Castle from this part. Whether you come here during the day or at night, it’s always a special treat.
Have a drink with a view at Strahov Monastery
While the monastery itself has some of the most beautiful religious art on display I have ever seen, what really takes the cake here is the amazing view from the restaurant next to the monastery. There’s countless apple and pear trees as well as a small vineyard making for an incredible shot.
