How many days are needed to visit Prague? Well let’s start with 3 days not counting the tiring traveling hours that drive us crazy back and forth as well. In any case, 3 days in Prague may be enough to visit the most sites without too much rush . Of course you have to give up museums, galleries, and tours outside of Prague. You must have noticed that too many things to visit in one day is not good! After a while, ‘you lose the pleasure and the visit becomes a torture.
Starting on how to visit Prague in 3 days and 4 nights. Having booked a hotel that is located in the center … you rest a little after the arrival and spent the rest of the day on where to dine for 3 full days of sightseeing await you! Starting with the Old Town Square you must watch the whole hour astronomical clock and go to the Charles Bridge and enjoy the panorama of Prague Castle, the Church of Our Lady Victorious look and St. Anthony of Padua and greet the statue of the Infant Jesus of Prague. But above all try to navigate and understand the distances. For lunch I recommend the Malostranská Beseda on the Lesser Town Square (Malostranské náměstí). The Grand Tour of Prague is just perfect to make the first steps in a city still unknown. Offers a mix of history and monuments but also practical information for the rest of the stay. For lunch you can try Malostranská Beseda. And for a change tonight goes PEPeNERO (via Bílkova, 5 minutes walk from Square Astronomical Clock) … an Italian pizzeria is at 100% and the food is really good, even better than in many pizzerias in Italy.
The second of three days in Prague you should visit the area of the Prague Castle. And you absolutely must visit the church of St. Nicholas of Bari (the one with the green dome and bell tower). It ‘a jewel of Baroque architecture in Prague. The first place to visit in Pohořelec is the Strahov Monastery with the Church of the Annunciation, the Hall of Philosophy, Theology … all of them beautiful examples of Baroque style u must see! Be careful to get up at 11.00 to visit the monastery with calm and avoid the lunch break. It means that you must leave the hotel at 9.00 am or a little ‘before.
After the visit to the Strahov Monastery the Sanctuary of Loreto awaits … that is, a building inspired by the Holy House of Loreto in the Marche in Italy. Every full hour the bell tower of the Prague Loreto plays a song so pay attention. Inside visit a replica of the Holy House, the chapels, the Church of the Nativity, and the room with the treasure, which, among other items, also contains a monstrance decorated with over 6,000 diamonds! In one of the chapels there is the Crucifixion with Jesus Christ dressed as a woman, the Holy Vilgefortis which I highly recommend! And now along the way Černínská – Novy Svet – Kapucinska you reach the main square in front of the Prague Castle. It’s time for lunch and this time you can try U Sv Jana Nepomuckého that is on the same square. After lunch we need to mind the timetable for the visit to Prague Castle. Better renounce the base path (route “B” – 250 CZK), which does not offer much. The Old Royal Palace and the Basilica of St. George are two almost empty rooms. Worth the visit are however: the Chapel of the Holy Cross with the treasure of St. Vitus, the cathedral of St. Vitus (before it closes), Golden Lane (just after the end of the itinerary “B”), and Lobkowicz Palace, where appropriate, with the museum of this noble family.
Forget the idea of returning to the hotel. Take the eastern gate of Prague Castle, perhaps there will be the changing of the guards (it’s done every full hour before the doors), enjoy the panoramic view from the terrace, and descend the staircase to the river. You’ll be close to the boats with only 790 CZK you can do 3 hour cruise with buffet dinner and live music. Here comes the last of three days in Prague …and still there remain too many things to visit. There is the Jewish Quarter with the Museum and the Old Cemetery as well as the Vysehrad Castle and the beautiful basilica of St. Peter and St. Paul. There are other churches, squares, and streets that you have not yet seen. And there are also museums and galleries.
Choose a couple of things that you most interested in, eat a sandwich for lunch, and reserve a bit ‘of time for shopping! Dinner will be at Café Imperial will eat imperially in a luxurious setting (jacket and tie are not required, but the reservation is).
Well I think that if well organised you can make these three days count!!! Have fun!
