2 days in Prague - essentials/tips!!!
Known as the "Golden City of Spires," Prague boasts a fairytale medieval Old Town, historic churches and synagogues, and perhaps Europe's largest castle. A good way to introduce yourself to the city, its layered past, and its resilient people is with a walk across town, starting on lively, urban Wenceslas Square, weaving through the atmospheric Old Town, and ending at the picturesque Charles Bridge. Huge Wenceslas Square, lined with great buildings and loads of history, is the focal point of Prague's modern, New Town Quarter. It's named for King Wenceslas, the "good king" of Christmas-carol fame, sitting astride the big equestrian statue at the top of the boulevard. The statue is a popular meeting point among locals, who like to say, "I'll meet you under the horse's tail.

In the heart of the Czech Republic, Prague is "the golden city of a hundred spires. It's the ideal springboard for travelers new to eastern Europe — an accessible city with a story to tell and plenty to experience. When I need a break from history-heavy sightseeing, I stroll through its local markets, enjoy an outdoor concert, sip a Czech brew on a vista terrace, or take a leisurely paddleboat ride on the Vltava River. Wedged in the bend of the river, the Old Town Square is my favorite place to start exploring Prague's treasures. The vast square is ringed with colorful buildings; dotted with Baroque towers, steeples, and statues; and alive with people. Street performers provide a constant soundtrack.
We have a free stopover in Prague around the end of September on the way home from a trip to Italy. We will have two full days in Prague, not counting arrival we fly in around 7 pm the night before or departure departing early morning after 2 days there. We have not been to Prague before. Any suggestions for "don't miss" items for 2 fun-filled days in the city? We like the usual stuff - history, culture, art, food, scenery I'll want to take some photos - same as the rest of you :. Rather than a checklist of museums, Prague is a fine place to wander around and just take in the fun atmosphere. Plan some worthwhile activities — take a self-guided tram tour, hire a local guide, enjoy a concert, or go for a scenic paddle on the river.
