Here are our tips on things to do in Prague:

1. THE INFINITY BOOK TOWER

at the Municipal Library
Address: Mariánské Nám. 98/1, Prague

The Infinity Book Tower is located in the Municipal Library in Prague. It was built by the Slovak artist Matej Křen and is made of eight thousand books. It is called the idiom or tower of knowledge and symbolizes the infinity of knowledge. You can understand it if you look inside through a special hole in a column of hardback books.

2. FRANZ KAFKA’S ROTATING HEAD

in front of Quadrio Shopping Mall
Address: Charvátova, 110 00 New Town, Prague

The moving head is made of stainless steel and consists of 42 horizontal rotating parts and it is 10.6 meters high. It depicts Franz Kafka, who was one of the most important Czech writers of the 20th century. His iconic works include the novel The Metamorphosis, novels The Trial and The Castle. His Rotating Head is the work of controversial artist David Černý.

3. PATERNOSTER – THE LIFT WITHOUT DOORS

at Palace Lucerna
Address: Vodičkova 704/36, Prague

Have you ever taken an elevator that doesn’t stop? It goes round and round and you just have to jump on? If not, you definitely need to stop by the Lucerna Palace. Here you will find the orbital elevator, which had its greatest glory during the First Republic, but still entertains children of all ages today.

4. THE SMALLEST HOUSE

Address: Anezká 1043/4, Prague

The smallest house in Prague can be found on Anežská Street in Prague. The cute green house is only 2.25 meters wide. And interestingly enough, it was a brothel for 40 years. The house was built in 1853 according to the project of architect Josef Liebl and today it is a protected cultural monument.

5. LIGHT BULB STAIRCASE

in the House of the Black Madonna
Address: Ovocny try 19, Prague

The House of the Black Mother of God is a masterpiece of Czech cubist architecture. The staircase of the Museum of Czech Cubism in Prague in the building of the Black Madonna has a peculiar shape, it resembles a light bulb. You don’t have to pay to enter the museum, and it’s best to come at midday when the sun is directly over the building. Look up and down, both views are great.

6. THE EVER-CHANGING LENNON WALL

Address: Velkopřevorské nám., 118 00 Malá Strana, Prague

All fans of the Beatles, John Lennon and graffiti should definitely stop by the Lennon Wall in the Maltese Garden on Velkopřevorské Square in Mala Strana. In the past, the people of Prague used to call this wall the “Wailing Wall”, probably because people used to leave various messages and love poems on this wall.

7. THE NARROWEST STREET

in Malá Strana
Address: U Lužického semináře street, Prague

It’s so narrow that traffic lights have been installed to facilitate the passage of pedestrians. You can find that in Vinarna Certovka, in the heart of Prague’s oldest district, the historic Mala Strana. Here it is impossible for two people to pass at the same time as the small street is only 50 centimeters wide.

8. THE HANGING MAN

Address: intersection of Husova and Skorepka Streets

This interesting work can be found on Husova Street towards the house U Sladkých. The sculpture from 1996 depicts Sigmund Freud hanging by one arm with the other hand in his pocket. The funny thing is that while the statue was in the US, people called the fire department and ambulance because they thought it was a living person 🙂

9. UPSIDE-DOWN HORSE

at Lucerna Palace
Address: Vodičkova 704/36

The Upside-down horse is also the work of Czech artist David Černý and is located in the Art Nouveau building at 61 Stepánská Street. The statue depicts St. Wenceslas, the Czech king and saint, sitting on the belly of a dead horse hanging by his legs from the ceiling and is meant to be a mocking reference to the famous statue of St. Wenceslas in Wenceslas Square.

10. U PRINCE ROOFTOP

Address: Hotel U Prince, Staroměstské nám. 29

Do you know the place with the most romantic view in Prague? The Hotel U Prince on whose roof a terrace has been set up with tables, a piano bar and a restaurant. Ideal place for a romantic dinner overlooking the Old Town Square, the Astronomical Clock, and Prague Castle.

We hope you will enjoy your stay on Prague!
