Tips for adventure and trips in Czech cities

Whether you arrive in Prague, Brno, or Ostrava, you’ll be thrilled. Cities in the Czech Republic offer a wealth of experiences and are also great starting points for trips. Travelling around Czechia is easy! Just download the My Train app by Czech Railways to find connections and buy tickets, and you’re all set!  

In the capital city you have to visit Prague Castle and take the picturesque streets of Malá Strana down to the famous Charles Bridge, built in the 14th century. You should also check out the Old Town astronomical clock, the oldest working astronomical clock in the world. The Prague National Gallery has free admission to all collection expositions for people under 26. The nearby castles of Křivoklát and Karlštejn were made for a romantic trip!  

In addition to many traditional inns and pubs such as U Fleků, you’ll also find a lot of modern restaurants in the city, such as Vozovna Stromovka, hipster cafés in Vršovice, and the Manifesto Market in Smíchov. You can also visit the Prague river embankment with its original cells or the Lucerna music bar for some fun and refreshments. Fancy something unusual? The interactive Museum of Senses lets you experience fata morgana, an upside-down room, or you can lie on a bed of pins. You could also go see the humanoid robot Thespian in the iQLANDIA Liberec science center, or any of the interactive expositions at Techmania in Plzeň.

Visit the thirteen-century Špilberk Castle in the Moravian capital, rising high above the historical center. See the monumental, eight-meter-tall sculpture of Jobst of Moravia and the unique Brno astronomical clock, which looks like a huge bullet. Take a cruise on the Brno water reservoir to nearby Veveří Castle.  

Enjoy a unique ambience and long, Czech-Asian style drinks at Super Panda Circus, the weirdest of cocktail bars, or choose one of the excellent, special beers at Na stojáka in Jakubské Square. Looking for music? Go to the famous Fléda club, where you can let your hair down at one of its dance parties.

The city’s mining history and unique industrial architecture can be found in Lower Vítkovice, dominated by the Bolt Tower with a café, club and a scenic terrace at a height above 70 meters. You can even go down a shaft in Ostrava — take a trip to Landek Park and see the coal seams of Anselm, a real historical mine! Or admire the luxuriously furnished chambers of the chateau in Hradec na Moravicí, where Ludwig van Beethoven used to stay! 

Stodolní Street and its vicinity are home to almost 70 bars and clubs where thousands of people have fun every weekend. A few streets away, you can enjoy a great cup of coffee at the Čauky Mňauky Café, in the company of purring cats! Hogofogo Bistro offers various trendy delicacies, including burgers, pho bo, cheesecake, and mini donuts, or you can get one of the original refreshing long drinks, such as Růžovka Ginton or Papa Ernesto.
