Besides the mesmerizing views, Prague Castle also offers its visitors a glimpse of history and the unforgettable feeling of being in a fairy tale.
Explore the City’s Museums
The lovely capital of the Czech Republic is considered, thanks to its architecture and the great number of landmarks, an open-air museum. But, if you are a real history enthusiast, you shouldn’t miss visiting the best museums in Prague during your girls getaway.
The National Museum and Museum of Communism are two of the great museums waiting for curious history aficionados.
Cross Charles Bridge at Night
Finished at the beginning of the 15th century, Charles Bridge is a historic bridge that crosses the Vltava river in Prague, and one of the most famous attractions in the city. While it is gorgeous during the day, you should consider crossing it at night, as well. The bridge is filled with street musicians and artists, but under the moonlight, there are fewer travelers, and the lack of crowds promise you a memorable girls getawayexperience.
Spend an Evening in Mala Strana
Across the Vltava River, and linked to the Old Town by the breathtaking Charles Bridge, you will find a welcoming hillside area with beautiful views across the river and the city. Mala Strana, also known as Lesser Town, is a great place to visit while in Prague.
During the day, you can visit the Franz Kafka Museum, explore the charming streets, and catch a glimpse at the colorful John Lennon Wall.
Warm and intimate, nights in the Lesser Town are a great way to experience the romantic part of the city. Explore the small streets illuminated by lanterns and little street lights, admire the old buildings under the moonlight, and relax in one of its cozy cafes.
Indulge in Prague’s Cuisine and Taste the Local Beer
If you are a foodie, you will love Prague, thanks to its diverse flavors. Whether you prefer indulging in tasty potato soups, traditional roast pork with dumplings or fried cheese, or a delicious portion of goulash, Prague promises to amaze your taste buds. But no meal is complete without a few sips of Pilsner Urquell, the best known Czech beer.
Enjoy the Explosive Nightlife
Prague is famous for its nightlife, which is essential to any successful girls getaway. The city is filled with bars, pubs, and restaurants, as well as many amazing events and crowds of people ready for a memorable party.
One of the most famous clubs in the city is Lucerna Music Bar, located in the Lucerna Palace, in the New Town area of Prague. The concert club is very popular among nostalgics for its 1980s and ‘90s parties every Friday and Saturday night. And, if this is not your cup of tea, live bands are waiting for you on midweek nights, with everything from pop-rock to electro-funk and heavy metal.
Meet Cool People
If you are traveling solo, and you want to meet new people, you can start by joining a city tour. Walking tours are very popular since Prague is full of cobblestone streets and charming pedestrian alleys. If you plan to stay longer in this lovely city, you can participate in expats’ meetings, or join the events available at the time of your trip.
Also, for the less shy travelers on your girls getaway, a great way to make friends is at hip places like the MeetFactory, a cafe and art gallery, as well as a theatre and space for live music. And if you visit Prague during the sunny days, you can meet new people at one of the many beer gardens in the city, but only if you are not afraid to start conversations with strangers.
