Tips for Exploring City on Foot at Your Own Pace

Whether you are in Prague for a quick stopover or have a few days to see the city in more detail, exploring it on foot, at your own pace, is definitely the way to go. Here are some tips for you to save money, see the best Prague has to offer, take good care of your feet while walking, and keep your mobile device – your ultimate "work horse" on this trip - well fed and safe.

Saving Money with City Passes

To save yourself time and money visiting Prague's multiple sights, you may want to resort to the so-called city passes, such as the Prague City Pass (by Ticketbar), Prague City Pass (by Musement), or Prague City Pass (by Viator).

A city pass combines all or multiple Prague's top highlights, tours and experiences in one prepaid attractions pass, using which you can save incredible amounts on general admission fees as compared to purchasing tickets separately. Often, a city pass also allows you to skip the lines at major attractions, thus saving you precious time.

Staying at Walk-Friendly Hotels

Since you're keen on exploring cities on foot (we assume that you are, and this is why you're here), it is important that you stay at a hotel close to the city's major attractions. It saves you time and energy. Here are a few Prague hotels conveniently located for a comfortable stroll: Hotel Lippert, Old Town Square Hotel, Grand Hotel Praha.

Taking Care of Your Feet

To ensure ultimate satisfaction from a day of walking around the city as big as Prague, it is imperative to take good care of your feet so as to avoid unpleasant things like blisters, cold or overheated soles, itchy, irritated or otherwise damaged (cracked) skin, etc. Luckily, these days there is no shortage of remedies to address (and, ideally, to prevent) these and other potential problems with feet. Among them: Compression Socks, Rechargeable Battery-Powered Thermo Socks for Cold Weather, Foot Repair Cream, Deodorant Powder, Shoes UV Sterilizer, and many more that you may wish to find a place in your travel kit for.

Travel Gadgets for Your Mobile Device

Your mobile phone or tablet will be your work horse on a self-guided walk. They offer tour map, guide you from one attraction to another, and provide informative background for the sights you wish to visit. Therefore it is absolutely essential to plan against unexpected power outages in the wrong place at the wrong time, much as to ensure the safety of your device.

For these and other contingencies, here's the list of useful appliances: Portable Charger/External Battery Pack, Worldwide Travel Charger Adapter, Power Converter for International Travel Adapter, and Mobile Device Leash.

Exploring City on Guided Tours

We have a strong bias towards exploring a city on foot, at your own pace, because this is how you get to see things up close with a maximum freedom. You decide how much time you wish to spend at each attraction and don't have to worry about following a crowd. That said, however, we also understand that some of you may want to go with a guided tour. If that is your case, here are some guided tours to consider. Be ready to fork out a bit of money, though, as a guided tour of Prague typically costs somewhere between US$25+ and US$85+ per person:

- Board a hop-on hop-off double-decker to admire Prague's best-known landmarks in comfort from the open top of the bus listening in the headsets to the commentary provided in a variety of languages, and be able to get on and off at any of the stops along the three interconnecting routes (the ticket is valid for all three). For extra fun, enhance the experience with a complementary walking tour of the Jewish Quarter or Prague Castle!

- Embark on a self-balancing Segway tour of Prague – this usually lasts about 2 hours and allows visitors to get a real sense of the Czech capital. Most people (even those aged 70+) find it quite fun and convenient, enabling to cover much more ground than you otherwise could have done by walking.

- Pedal your way around Prague on a 2-hour bike tour exploring the city's exceptional architecture and spectacular landmarks, watching the surroundings, and learning much about the Czech capital from an informative group leader, making halfway through a 30 minute refreshment stop at the Vltava riverside pub.

- Acquaint yourself with the secrets and wicked stories of the magical Golden Lane of Prague and gain insight into one of Europe's largest medieval castles on a 3.5-hour historical walk to the renowned Prague Castle and other gems of the Czech capital!

- Take a 3-hour walk to discover Prague’s Old Town and other downtown highlights including the Jewish quarter for a chance to learn about the centuries-long fascinating and complicated history of Prague and the Prague Jews in particular. In addition to the beautiful historic architecture, enjoy a free drink during a break!

- Discover Prague with the taste of beer on a relaxing 1.5-hour tasting session sampling some of the best brews the city has to offer! Learn some secrets of professional beer tasting and brewing traditions of the Czech Republic. A truly insightful introduction to the city's beer culture renowned for its pilsners, porters and other brews!

Day Trips

If you have a day to spare whilst in Prague, why not use it to explore some of the out-of-town destinations like Terezin, Kutna Hora, Cesky Krumlov, or Karlstejn Castle. For as little as circa US$45+ to US$80+ per person you will get a chance to discover the highlights of the UNESCO World Heritage sites including medieval city with hundreds of historic buildings, see the «Pearl of the Renaissance» castle - one of the most important historic sites in Central Europe, explore the picturesque south Bohemian countryside, visit a 13th century silver mine town - once the rich and powerful seat of the royal mint, embark on an educational journey into a former Jewish ghetto for some chilling insights into the grim World War II period, and more. For any of these tours you will be picked up straight from your hotel in Prague and transported by a comfortable air-conditioned coach or private vehicle to the destination of your choice and back again.
