Unique things to do in Prague
Book unforgettable activities hosted by locals on Airbnb.
Travel like a local
Prague is a rarity in Europe, if not the world. Its ornate architecture has remained mostly intact for centuries, and a walk through its cobblestoned streets can leave even a pensive local wondering who walked in their footsteps all those years ago. Today’s Prague, however, has an edge to it, a place where creative minds come to open art studios, restaurants, and more. Go beyond traditional tours and activities to see for yourself with local-led Airbnb Experiences.

Your guide to Prague
Where do locals hang out in Prague?
Across the Vltava River, sits the Letná district, known for its lush parks and Bohemian vibe. It’s still close enough to Old Town (and the rest of the city center) that you can make a morning, evening, or even an entire day out of exploring this area. During the day, you’ll find people catching up in beer gardens, jogging and lounging around one of the area’s two parks — Letenský and Stromovka — and checking out art and cinema in places such as the the National Gallery, the Academy of Fine Arts, and Bio Oko cinema house. After you’ve hit the museums and independent art galleries, stop for a cup of coffee at one of the many beloved cafes or coffee houses. For those who want to explore Prague’s local nightlife consider a bar crawl with a local to discover alternative art, underground scenes, cultural oddities, and handcrafted beer.
What are the most unique things to do in Prague?
Learn about the architecture on a walking tour
Prague is filled with unexpected history lessons, and one of the best ways to learn is through the architecture and the art movements that influenced many of its centuries-old structures. A visit to Cyrila a Metoděje (Saints Cyril and Methodius Cathedral) reveals more about the Czech paratroopers of WWII, as well as offers the chance to pay your respect to those lost in the church crypt.
Other must-sees include Prague Castle, Rudolfinum, the John Lennon Wall, the Dancing House, and the amusing (and thought-provoking) David Cerny statues found in several Prague quarters. Consider taking walking or bike tours with Prague natives to cover more ground. And yes, take the walk over the Charles Bridge — it’s worth the visit for the views.
Indulge in Czech cuisine
From a 10-course meal prepared by a local chef in their home to food tours in Old Town, Prague is a destination that should be on any food lover’s list. Czech beer lives up to its refreshing reputation, along with homemade lemonades, where people have been known to center a meal around their beverages. Dessert is big here, and favorites include fruit-filled palačinky, sweet dumplings, and Czech-style gingerbread cookies (there’s a whole museum dedicated to the confection in Old Town).
Take a ghost tour
Headless ghosts on the Charles Bridge. Card games with spirits at the St. Castulus Church. An unlucky black cat whose chilling tale still lives along Křížalova Street (now called Pánska). See the supernatural side of Prague on a night tour led by local paranormal lovers and experts. It’s also a great excuse to see the Prague Castle, and its surroundings, without the daytime crowds.
