There is a lot to see in Prague, so 2 days still seem insufficient, but if you are able to organize yourself well and take advantage of the visits, you will see that it is completely possible to visit Prague in two days since everything is very close and this city can be visited almost whole walking.
Prague is known as the city of 100 towers and each of the Prague neighborhoods that make it up has its own charm. As we only have 2 days in Prague, we are going to have to sacrifice some and leave it for a later visit when you have enough time.
Here we help you to know the most important things to see in Prague in 2 days.
What to see in Prague in 2 days
First day in Prague
On the first day of our two-day Prague itinerary, we recommend you visit the Staré Mesto neighborhood, the most historic neighborhood in the city. We can start the tour in the Old Town Square, the best known place in Prague and where you will always find tourists and visitors admiring, above all, the Astronomical Clock.
The Astronomical Clock is located in the tall tower of the Old Town Hall, which you can climb and have great views of. You can also enjoy the show of the twelve apostles that the famous 15th century clock offers you every hour.
Looking out over the Old Town Square we have the Church of Our Lady of Tyn, a spectacular Gothic-style church that stands out for its 2 sharp towers, which you may have already been able to admire from the square itself.
After this visit, it is best to get lost in the network of medieval streets that make up the neighborhood, narrow streets full of puppet shops, restaurants, theaters and special corners that will take you to another era. The Torre de la Pólvora must be another must-see in the neighborhood, as well as the Municipal House, which is very close.
After visiting Staré Mesto, you must go to nearby Josefov, the Jewish quarter of Prague, where some of the essential places to see in Prague in two days are located. There you can visit the Jewish synagogues, each one with a special charm, and especially the Jewish Cemetery, one of the places that will surprise you the most in the city.
Do not miss anything of the neighborhood with this tour of the Jewish Quarter.
Among the synagogues, possibly the most interesting are the Pinkas Synagogue, overwhelming thanks to its walls where the names of those killed in the Terezin concentration camp are written, or the Spanish Synagogue, in Moorish style, and one of the most beautiful of the world. With the same ticket, which you can buy at any of the synagogues, you can visit all of them as well as the cemetery.
The visits of this first day can end at the Clementinum and its spectacular library, located next to the Charles Bridge, another of the wonders of the city and from which you can have beautiful views of the Vltava River and the other neighborhoods that we will visit on the day Next.
What to see on the second day
On the last of our two days in Prague we will visit the neighborhoods on the other side of the Vltava River. To do this we will go to the Prague Castle, in the Hradcany neighborhood, which we can reach by tram.
As it is a very large enclosure, if you do not want to miss anything, we recommend you take this guided tour of Prague Castle.
Visiting the Prague Castle will take you a long time as it has innumerable points of interest. You will surely spend the whole morning in it, although time will fly by in one of the best visits to Prague in two days.
The main points of interest that you will see in the Prague Castle, built from the 9th century and for many the largest in the world, are the Cathedral of Saint Vitus, place of coronation of the Kings of Bohemia, the Old Royal Palace, where is the famous Vladislav Hall, the Basilica of Saint George and the Golden Lane, possibly one of the most charming and picturesque places to see in Prague.
In Prague Castle you can also visit other palaces, stroll through its streets, see its towers and even some museums. And don’t forget to visit its gardens either. Also do not forget to admire it at night from the other side of the river, something you should have done the day before if you followed our recommendations.
The gardens should be the last place to visit the castle before heading to the other neighborhood that we are going to visit, Malá Strana, located at the foot of the castle and with a special charm. It is reached by going down some picturesque stairs.
In this neighborhood is the Church of San Nicolás, which you may have already been able to admire from the castle gardens. It is one of the most impressive baroque churches in the world with an interior that you should not miss. In the square where it is located, do not miss the beautiful Column of the Holy Trinity.
Wandering through the neighborhood, we finally arrived at the Charles Bridge, the link between the two historic neighborhoods of the city. Crossing the Charles Bridge is a must experience in Prague. The towers at its ends give it a special charm, as well as the vendors that are always above it, the tourists or the musicians.
On the Charles Bridge is the statue of San Juan de Nepomuceno, at the point from which he was thrown into the river according to legend.
Thus ends our second day in Prague. If you still have more time, you can take a new walk to the Old Town Square and enjoy one of the most beautiful places in the city.
