Prague is one of Europe’s most photogenic cities! The old buildings and neighbourhoods make you feel like you’ve stepped back in time – and the beautiful detailing and architecture make the entire city look like it belongs in a fairytale. Below is my list of the top 5 spots for photos in Prague!
Old Town Hall
For a birds eye view of Prague’s Old Town Square take the elevator in Old Town Hall up to the top. From here, you can walk around the entire perimeter of the tower to get shots of the city below from every angle. Visit right before sunset to get the perfect “golden hour” shot – and to avoid the rush of tourists that visit during the day.
Prague Castle is a beautiful spot for pictures, and the huge grounds means there is endless opportunity for different shots. Give yourself at least 2-3 hours here so that you can walk around the entire perimeter of the castle. Each side of the castle offers a different view of both the castle itself, and the beautiful city below. Since the grounds are so big it’s also fairly easy to get great pictures without anyone else in the background.
John Lennon Wall
This colourful wall is filled with messages of love and peace – making it the perfect backdrop for your next selfie! Because people are always adding new messages and drawings, the wall is always changing – so you can be sure that you’re picture here will always be unique.
Mala Strana is filled with colourful old buildings that are perfect for pictures. This area is very busy though – so I recommend visiting around 6am if you want to get a picture with no one else in it, like I did.
Charles Bridge is one of Prague’s most famous sights – so be sure to get some pictures here as well. Just like Mala Strana, Charles Bridge is extremely busy so you’re going to want to visit here early morning to avoid the crowds. Mala Strana begins right after the bridge, so you can easily visit both in one morning.
