Best Five Free Things to Do in Prague

Prague is not only the most adored capital in Europe, famous for its cathedrals and bridges, but also as the city with a seemingly infinite beer scene. It's time to lose yourselves in the beauty and romance of this ancient city, specially when it comes alive with street artists, musicians and old world art. Here are the best five free things to do in Prague!

Letna Park assures you spectacular views of the city. In the centre of the park is a giant, functional metronome overlooking the Vltava River and the city center of Prague. This is place where a huge statue of Stalin stood until it was destroyed in 1962. Letna Park is a very famous spot during summer when it is a beehive of activities.
The Petřín Watchtower renders the most beautiful views over Prague. Designed to resemble the Eiffel Tower in Paris, the Petřín Watchtower is only a fifth of the original. It is not always necessary that you climb the 299 stairs up the tower for a great view, even taking the funicular up the hill is worth it.

The Dancing House is an unusual shaped building located at the right riverbank, amongst Baroque, Gothic and Art Nouveau houses. When first built in 1996, it attracted quite a bit of scepticism. But now people are now used to its presence. The building houses a French restaurant on the top from where one can catch views of the Prague Castle, Petrin Hill and Vltava river.

The Franciscan Garden is nestled in the middle of bustling Prague, immediate to Wenceslas Square. It is a quiet, pleasant garden for anyone who wants to relax, read a book and enjoy the calm oasis.

One of the most lovely spots in Lesser Town, Kampa provides a great view of the Charles Bridge. It resembles the serenity of Venice, effectively complimented by the 13th century watermill and Certovka Mill Stream. Look out for the three gigantic crawling baby statues across Kampa Park.
