    I spent 9 days in Prague and I have the opportunity to see many sites. To me the most impressive ones are: the Loreta, the Cathedral of Saint Nicholas, the Spanish Synagogue, the Cathedral of Saint Pater and Saint Paul at Vyserhad, the Municipal House, and the St. Vitus Cathedral.

    This was my second trip to Prague. In my first visit, I took a tour, which was a mistake. Majority of tours take you only to the main entrance and you will have a very limited visit to the cathedral that only allows you to see some windows and the roof. I strongly recommend to pay the ticket to visit the cathedral. The ticket is not expensive and allows you to see 4 sites including the Royal Palace, the Saint George Basilica, the Golden Line, and the St, Vitus Cathedral. You may spend a whole afternoon visiting these sites and all of them are impressive. The ticket costs approximately 10 dollars. I arrived at noon on a beautiful Monday; there were no lines. The Cathedral is not crowded as most tours do not go inside and stop at the main entrance; in addition, not many people pay for the ticket. The visit is actually relaxing and quiet; you will find mainly independent tourists.

    Saint Vitus Cathedral has very impressive windows and roses. The two roses describe the life of Christ; there is an art nouveau colorful window depicting the saints of the Czech republic; this window was painted by Mucha. The music hall has beautiful décor, the side doors are beautiful, the golden portal is magnificent, the tomb of Saint Wenceslaus is really nice (the paintings, the door knobs, etc.), the tomb of Saint John Nepomuceno is an impressive baroque tomb made of silver, the roof is lovely, etc.

    You have to read online on the sites inside the cathedral or have a good guide book. It is easy to understand. The cathedral was built over a period of almost 600 years and because of this, it is eclectic as it depicts many art styles in a single building (gothic, baroque, neoclassical, art nouveau). The Cathedral dominates Prague and you can see it from almost every place.

    Once outside, walk around the cathedral and look for the rooster, the golden helmet, and Sigismund, the big bell located in the roof.

    This beautiful 17th century baroque church, chapels and cloisters and definitely worth visiting. It was a unique experience and not like the other churches in Prague. This is close to Prague Castle and can be combined with that visit.

    An excellent museum in a beautiful synagogue. There was a line to get tickets but someone stopped us and directed us to the IRC around the corner which had no line. We bought a multi-site ticket plus audio tour. The audio tour was well worth it. The Holocaust memorial and the children's drawings from the concentration camp are very impactful.

    Visited in December it was cold outside and not much warmer inside. I think that this is an important place to visit when in Prague because of the history. It is a beautiful building. There is a lot of reading to do on the displays.

    This is a small but interesting church. Much less ornate than most other churches in the area. The frescos on the ceiling of the alter at the front of the church are amazing. Here you will also find the tomb of St. Ludmila of Bohemia who was the grandmother of St. Wenceslas. Entry requires a ticket that also gets you in to several other amazing buildings on the castle grounds. It is worth the cost of the ticket for all these facilities.

    This is yet another beautiful church in a city full of beautiful churches. It is hidden away behind The Church Of Our Lady Before Tyn. The outside is unimpressive, but the inside is massive, with a magnificent high ceiling covered in gorgeous artwork. We took photographs because other people were and we couldn't see any signs telling us not to. We couldn't find the infamous arm either. maybe we're not very observant! If you like churches, this is well worth a visit.

    Europe's oldest active synagogue; completed in 1270. The design is quite interesting. Apparently, there is a hefty charge to enter (we didn't do so), but reviewers say it isn't worth the fee. We found it interesting just to see from the outside.

    To escape the hustle and bustle of the busy tourist centres of Prague it's just so good jumping on a tram and in a relatively short tram ride your in a much more peaceful and tranquil district of Prague.
    Brevnovsky Klaster is one such place I love to visit,not only is it a beautiful monastery complex to visit but it's also a great place to enjoy their own brewed beers and sample a meal from their great meal menu.
    Brenovsky Klaster has some serious history attached to it,founded in 993 with most of the rest of the arch abbey dating from 1708 and 1740,its such a beautiful looking building set in superbly kept grounds complete with it's own lake system,I love to hop tram number 22 from Malostranske Namesti up to stop Brevovsky Klaster which drops you off practically by the monastery and brewpub,they have two great taverns in here namely Klasterni Senk and klasterni Sypka were you can enjoy their superb Benedictine ales and sample local Czech cuisine.
    A wonderful monastery and garden area,well worth checking out if your planning a holiday to Prague.

    You can take a guide tour here, or walk alone with an information brochure (available in many languages). On the first floor there is an exhibition about Jan Hus life and during Christmas you can visit nativity scenes exhibition here.

    Entrance fee is 60,- CZK. Bethlehem Chapel is situated in Bethlehem Square, close to the Náprstek Museum.

    This is a beautiful synagogue that has been around for many centuries and was nearly destroyed by the Nazis. During the later part of the twentieth century it was restored and is a museum rather than a working synagogue. Our tour guide filled us in on the history of the Jewish Quarter.

    We bought our tickets at the Maiselova synagogue which gave us entrance to several synagogues in Prague.

    This synagogue is close to the Jewish cemetery. The building has a fabulous ceiling which is highly ornate and there are many glass display cases displaying Jewish artifacts and descriptions about Jewish customs including prayer, the sabbath, tallit, menorah, bar mitzvah, weddings, peach cuisine, shavuct, succot, days of sorrow, amulets, birth, Kashmir and ritual objects.

    The building really needed better lighting over the display cases so that we could more easily read the information, it was quite dark in there. The staff speak very little English so its no good asking them for information.

    There is a public toilet nearby which you must pay to use so have some local change with you.

    I learned an enormous amount through the detailed explanations of the frescos. The physical site is expansive and impressive, the feeling is very somber. If you are interested in Christian history, art and architecture, you will find this place of interest.

    I love visiting the Vinohrady District and one of my favourite places to visit in this vibrant district is Namesti Miru ( Peace Square ) and dominating this square is Temple Of Czech Princess's St Lyudmila .
    A beautiful twin spired church ,it's a grand looking church ,a great example of Gothic architecture ,inside the church is so beautiful ,so many great features to just admire ,this is still a place of worship so be respectful to the congregation ,it's a beautiful church go check out if you're near Namesti Miru.

    Nice old tower in Vysehrad. Do not miss it if you are visiting the area. It was closed by the time I visited (Sunday afternoon)
