Prague, Czech Republic is a city like no other. It’s often referred to as the “fairytale city”! This city is filled with colorful and whimsical buildings, the largest castle in the world, beautiful gothic architecture, and cheap beer! I only spent two days in Prague, but I felt like that was enough time to see the city. I think that a Prague weekend should definitely be on your bucket list if you plan on visiting Europe in the future. Here’s the ultimate guide to a Prague 3 day itinerary.

Prague 3 Day Itinerary: Day One
The Jewish Quarter & Old Town Square
I recommend beginning your first day in Prague with a Sandemans New Prague Walking Tour. The guide was hysterical and made the information so interesting! We visited Wenceslas Square, the largest square in Europe; the Jewish Quarter, and the Old Town Square. This square contains the famous astronomical clock that performs shows every hour. This is an absolute must on your Prague 3 day itinerary.
Good Eats & Fun Nightlife
Next, my friends and I ate lunch near Old Town Square at The Pub. You can tap your own beer right at the table in this restaurant! I highly recommend taking advantage of this since beer is cheaper than water in the Czech Republic! Additionally, this restaurant is known for its burgers (which were to die for) and its fun, laid-back atmosphere.
Next, we made our way over to Good Food Coffee & Bakery for one of Prague’s infamous trdelník desserts. A trdelník is a donut covered in cinnamon and sugar, filled with vanilla ice cream, drizzled with chocolate sauce and caramel, and topped with chopped nuts and a brownie. It was one of the best desserts I’ve had! You have to squeeze a visit to this place into your Prague 3 day itinerary!
Later on, we had a fun night out at a club called Lucerna. This place is popular among study abroad students in Prague. If you’re studying abroad in Europe, definitely check this place out!
While in Prague, we stayed at the Czech Inn. This hostel is extremely modern and has such an accommodating staff! Additionally, it’s conveniently located next to a tram stop that brings you right into the Old Town city center. I highly recommend staying here!
Prague 3 Day Itinerary: Day Two
We began our second day of our Prague weekend by exploring the Charles Bridge. This beautiful bridge is filled with musicians and artists from around the world. Also, there are two towers that you can climb if you pay a small fee.
John Lennon Wall
Once you cross the bridge, next head to the John Lennon Wall! This iconic wall is located in a residential neighborhood across the river. After the communist reign in Prague ended in the 1980s, the phrase “war is over” was written on the John Lennon Wall. The wall has been a symbol of positive expression and peace ever since. Today, it is covered in quotes, images, and lyrics from John Lennon’s songs. Anyone can paint on the wall or sign their name!
For lunch, we ate at U Fleku. This brewery and restaurant is one of Prague’s most visited sites. It’s decorated with wooden embellishments and has a massive fireplace! I recommend ordering the beef and cream. It’s the most traditional dish on the menu and comes with potato dumplings and cranberry sauce…comfort food galore!
The Prague Castle is the largest castle in the world according to the Guinness Book of World Records! It’s a staggering work of gothic architectural design and contains the St. Vitus Cathedral. The dark stone, abundance of arches, and impressive gargoyles will make you feel like you’re in a Disney movie!
Finally, if you walk through the castle where the gardens are located, you’ll find a patio overlooking the city. If you’re planning a Prague 3 day itinerary, make sure to visit this castle before you leave!
Prague 3 Day Itinerary: Day Three
On day three, we ate one final breakfast in Prague, explored Old Town Square again, and made our way south 6 hours to Munich, Germany!
I hope you find this Prague weekend travel guide to be helpful and get the chance to Czech out Prague soon!
