The 8 Most Instagrammable Spots In Prague

 

So here it is guys! I’ve done all the work for you! Looking for an Instagram playground that’s just a 90 minute flight from London? Great! Prague has always been on my travel hit list and I’ve been told over and over again that it’s one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, especially during Christmas. If you’re like me and love all things Christmassy, well this is the place to be! If you want to the get “the shot” without fighting with the crowd, then I would recommend to wake up early for all of these spots! Prague really is more beautiful early in the morning – you get the whole city to yourself.

Here are my top eight tips for places to shoot in Prague:

 

  1. Prague Castle and look out at Prague Castle: I went here twice – once during the day (mistake!), and once at night (AMAZING!). Forget trying to shoot here during the day unless you want hundreds of people in your shots. I did a night walking tour here and it was absolutely amazing – I literally saw maybe another 20-30 people during the entire three hours I was on the hill. Click here for more info on the one that we did, or Google around and find something that suits.
  2. Prague National Library and Klementinum Library: I stumbled across the National Library while looking for Klementinum. The Klementinum complex houses the stunning Baroque Library (see here) which hasn’t been touched in 300 years, but unfortunately no photos are allowed. (It hurts me so bad, but rules are rules!) It’s only a few minutes from Charles Bridge and opens for tours at 10am – so knock them both out nice and early.
  3. Charles Bridge: The most famous and beautiful bridge in Prague. It is filled with artists, buskers and tourists is super busy, except for early mornings. So guys! I can’t emphasise enough! You need to wake up early to capture Prague properly!
  4. Take photos with the swans near Charles Bridge: After you have walked across Charles bridge, turn head right and get a shot with the swans at the edge of the river – you’ll see them as you’re crossing. They’re beautiful, go and create a few fairytale shots with them.
  5. Old Town Square: A beautiful square, surrounded by beautiful buildings and plenty of cute little laneways. It houses a picture perfect Christmas market over the festive season and has plenty of vendors selling local food. Get there just before the sun rises to capture the Christmas lights and the huge Christmas tree there – you’ll have the place all to yourself.
  6. See the top of Prague from the Hotel U Prince terrace bar: Prague is such a stunning city but even more beautiful when you look up. I was trying to find a spot to get a shot of the square and I think the Hotel U Prince terrace is the one of those spots. The terrace opens at 11am – get there as soon as it opens and try to get the little table at the edge of the rooftop.
  7. Parizska Street and the Jewish Quarter: Just off the Old Town Square is a beautiful street lined with amazing boutiques. The fairy lights on the trees remain on until around 8 am, so try to get there before they switch them off! If you keep walking it will lead you to the Jewish Quarter, lined with beautiful and interesting architecture.
  8. Powder Tower: Towards the end of old town is the Powder Tower (got its name as it used to store gun powder!) You can get an amazing view of the whole city from this tower. For some reason it’s relatively quiet so you can take as long as you like to enjoy the view.

Thank you so much for reading and happy exploring guys! (Don’t forget to put your phone down sometimes and just enjoy!)

    So, other than the main square and a quick walk around the castle I have to confess, I didn’t go to any tourist spots in Prague in the whole two weeks I was there. But, it is one of my favourite places in the world and to be fair I was there studying, so I was mostly busy with classes and the exhibition we were working on. Must go back and spend more time. And stay at Cesky Krumlov too, which I ended up driving down to but not staying. These photos are all beautiful! I’ll have to bookmark this post now.
