Prague Itinerary for either side of the Vltava River

Jump to last reply

Dear All,

Finally all our bookings have been done. Just a few inputs required :

1. Will it be raining in Prague in the frist / second week of May or will it be hot?

2. We have total 3 and 1/2 days in Prague. Can someone suggest an itinerary for one day to be spent on Prague Castle, Lesser Town, Petrin Hill side (which ticket must we opt for as we will be 2 adults and 2 children of 13 years and 11 years). We certainly want to see the beautiful stained glass in the churches and do the palace tours. If someone can suggest the sequence of to-dos it would help as we then do not go back and forth.

3. Likewise, can we cover the old town attractions including the municipal house tour and the old town house tours. We will not be having any guide nor will join any tour company. But we will go to the venue and join in the tour if available. Can we cover Vysehard and Spanish Synagogue on the third day? We will be staying close to Paladium Mall.

4. Son is very keen to see the KGB Museum and the Museum of Communism. Are these both the same or are they two different museums?

5. What are the must sees at Wensecelas Square?

We will not be travelling to Kutna Hora or Cesky Krumlov but wish to spend our time seeing Prague. Any inputs for taking the correct tickets etc would definitely help.

Kind regards,

    this website has lots of great info and I have set it to the itinaries page so you can try and work something out for yourself.
    This website also has lots of good info and has some discount vouchers.

    I will try and answer your other questions as best I can.

    1.Who knows but there is a good likelihood of rain. I am in Prague at some time during Prague most years (will be there very late may this year) sometimes it is very warm sometimes cooler and often raining.can be quite warm during the day and colder at night,but it can very a lot.

    2.see my original info,you can buy various tickets for the castle area and some will last for 2 days,look for a family ticket .One thing to look out for is the Crossbow area in the armoury museum of Golden lane,you can get a shot of a real old fashioned crossbow and I am sure the kids will love it,real cheap too.(I am late 50's and still go there for a go with the crossbow.You cantake a tram (no22) to the castle area and there is plenty to do to keep you busy all day,further up the hill is the Strahov monastery and the Loretto both worth visiting and one of my favourite bar/returants is in the Strahov complex (Klasterini Pivovar). it is easy to walk down hill from the castle and back into the old town.

    3. Should have plenty of time to wander round the old town, where you are staying is close to the main sights of the old town, you are only a short walk from the jewish area and the Spanish Synagogue (it is not near Vysehrad as some interactive maps place it)So Old Town and jewish quarter in a day is manageable.Vysehrad is a nice peaceful area and an hour or so in the area will probably be enough,easy to get to just take metro to the stop Vysehrad and follow the brown signs,takes about 10 minutes walk.
    4.Sorry can't comment I do think they are different as I have never visited either of them I can't give a true opinion.
    5.Wenseslas square is often a big disappoint ment for many,it really is just a big wide street with lots of the very top is the main museum which is undergoing refurbishment,it may have reopened but I am not sure,but I was never that impressed by it though the actual interior is stunning. there is the small Jan Palac memorial(very unusual) and of couse Wenselas Statue that dominates the top of the the bottom there are loads of stall selling food and craft product but it can be expensive for food as the sell in by the gramme.
    Hope this all helps.I am away for the rest of the day but should be able to ask any follow on questions tomorrow.
