Is Prague Worth Visiting?

Known for its preserved old town, Prague offers myriad attractions including the incredible Prague Castle, the largest ancient castle in the World, the picturesque Charles Bridge, and the grand St. Vitus Cathedral.

Prague is a perfect place to travel alone, it's safe and people are very polite. The food is so delicious I recommend the knedliky. The transportation is great and well organised it's easy to explore the city by foot or move with the transports the only thing is to be careful about the tickets

I felt 100% safe! I visited all the main attractions by placing "pins" on Google Maps to create an itinerary. Transportation is so easy. However, I moved around by taxi using the BOLT app! Very efficient. I stayed in an Airbnb at the top of a building with a view of the city and the red roofs ❤️ It was beautiful. First snow seen from my balcony. The apartment was PERFECT. I did not keep track of my expenses at all. 10 days Budapest-Prague-Vienna = 7000$ CAD. Quite expensive, but I didn't deprive myself of anything. The food is not expensive either, but not memorable for me. Really, I went there to explore! The people are super welcoming and kind (more than in Hungary 😅) One of the most beautiful trips of my life.

I really enjoyed my time in Prague. It is a beautiful city and there is a lot to do. I joined a pub crawl and had a great time meeting other solo travelers but had my phone stolen which was a big downer. I didn’t find the people very friendly. The hostel I stayed at (Czech Inn) was an awesome place to meet people at the bar.

I loved Prague. Beautiful city, the language is quite easy to communicate, and the food is really good. Charles Bridge and Hradcany are places that you must see. I felt very safe.

Beautiful city for a weekend break. Entirely walkable and safe for female travellers. All must see sights are within a short walking distance. We booked a hop on/hop off bus tour which in retrospect was not needed, so definately one to skip

I felt safe walking around at night, public transportation was crowded but easy to use, I took tours around the city, learning so much history. I can't recommend enough, but prepare yourself for cobblestones.

Prague is one of my favorite cities in Europe. I never felt unsafe there when I was exploring the city on my own. I recommend dedicating a day to explore the castle and visit St. Vitus at sunset - the way the sun hits the stained glass before dusk is magical. I had a wonderful dinner in a medieval tavern in Prague. I also strolled through the city market, drank lots of hot wine, and took a trip to the nearby town of Kutna Hora to see the Bone Church.

Prague is an all in all beautiful city with great old architecture wherever u look. If u like to walk u can see All famous attractions within one day. I went in July it was too full and too hot for long walks u should consider that. And everything is overpriced. Some places like the goldenes Gässchen and Jewish cemetery are all closed and u have to pay to see them which is sad coz they didn’t let me in with dog so I couldn’t see them. In most places u can pay with euro or visa. It was lovely there but too many people and too overpriced.

I really felt very safe in Prague, even walking alone at night, as long as it was the main part of the city. Kutna Hora was a cool idea for a day trip - they have this crazy church there built from thousands and thousands of bones. Super crazy and weird, but interesting to see.
