The magic of the fairytale Prague charms the tourists in a way no other European city does. Be it the historical astronomical clock, the captivating town square or the gorgeous Prague Castle, Prague is exceptional. Prague enchants couples, families & solo travelers alike. Romance is in the air here. But I would love to present the amazing unusual fun things to do in Prague apart from all the *touristy* things.
Prague is indeed marvelous with numerous cultural activities to do for families & travelers. There are countless romantic things to do for couples as well. But, I am determined to introduce some unusual fun things to do in Prague for couples. So, here it begins –
Vltava River Cruise
The Vltava river divides the Prague town into two halves. The Charles Bridge is a major attraction here dating back to the 13th century. The bridge is certainly one of the most touristy places in Prague. Despite providing beautiful views of the town and the bridge is simply too crowded for couples looking for a romantic & fun break. The alternative? Why not enjoy a cruise on the Vltava river? The cruise will not only bring out the best of romance, the views of the Prague Castle will enhance your experience. This short to a full day cruise will bring you the finest memories of your relationship. There are various options available, starting for simply a tour of Prague’s attraction or also a one which includes a buffet meal. I would suggest opting for a cruise with buffet and relish a great meal while appreciating the Prague’s beauty. Choose a cruise for dinner and see Prague shining in front of your eyes with your better half, how romantic is that?
A walk in the Lesser Town Square
The lesser town square is full of life with various picturesque buildings, churches and cafes. Usually filled with crowds during the day, the town square will not be romantic in any sense. I would recommend a walk on the Lesser Town Square after the clichéd candlelight dinner. The tourists make their way to cafes to enjoy Czech cuisine & the crowds usually disperse around the dinner time. An early candlelight dinner in an eccentric Praha restaurant followed by a hushed walk back to the home is immensely romantic. No matter how old school it sounds, but nothing beats a romantic walk together in a mystic city. Having those pretty and empty alleys all to you two will add to your beautiful memories
Walking with holding hands never gets old, isn’t it?
Savor Chocolates together
Talking about Prague immediately bring cheap beer to our minds. Sure! But that is neither romantic nor fun. What if I suggest drooling over chocolates to woo your better half? There are a number of chocolate shops in the town but I’d suggest heading to the Old Town Square and look for “Viva Praha”. They serve finest Belgian Chocolates and prepare live candies. Chocolates are known as perfect romantic gifts with the most genuine intent. What perfect way to spend an evening soaking in a variety of chocolates, gelato, and delicious waffles. After all, a way to a woman’s heart is through sweet savoury..isn’t it? This is going to be an amazing fun thing to do in Prague with a romantic twist.
Quaint Picnic in the Petrin Park
Petrin Park is one of the most tranquil places in Prague. The serene atmosphere and lack of high tourists influx make it a perfect idea for a romantic day. The Petrin Tower in the park gives panoramic views of this fairy tale town. The park can be reached through Trams, taxis or via a steep road. I suggest talking the pleasant walk from the Prague Castle to the park. Pack some snacks for a memorable picnic in the Petrin Park. Don’t feel like packing snacks? Then, there are various cafes near the park presenting stupendous views of Praha. Make the most of your trip by spending a perfect evening in the Petrin Park. The Petrin Tower is a look-alike of the Eiffel Tower in Paris but a mini version of the same. Although, it is not yet as commercialised as the former which makes it an awesome thing to do in Prague. The top of the tower can be reached either through stairs or elevators. Don’t miss out on stepping the 299 stairs together to the top of the Petrin Tower. You will never forget these moments of riding these many stairs together. It will indeed be one of the most extraordinary fun things to do in Prague, especially for couples.
Search for the love lock bridge together
Prague is tagged as a fairytale town and not a romantic one. Though love exists everywhere, right? The love lock bridge in Paris is well-renowned however tourists seem to ignore the presence of one in Prague. I explored the Prague town on foot, which has its unique advantages. I stumbled upon a small hidden canal and discovered the bridge all wrapped up in love locks. Despite being single, witnessing those cute little love locks made me realise what a romantic idea is to tie a lock here for a lifelong memory. The love lock bridge is not the most sought tourist attraction in Prague and hence is hidden in plain sight.
How to spot the love lock bridge?
Take a walk back from the Prague castle towards Mala Strana. This part of the town is mostly residential and you will notice beautifully coloured homes. Somewhere between those houses is a canal passing by. Where the canal ends, that is where this small bridge is. While admiring the architecture of Praha, I would recommend keeping an eye on to the bridge as well. When clicking multiple pictures of those locks, I noticed no one else was paying attention to them. I recommend get a coffee from any nearby cafe and spend romantic time with your beau on the enchanting bridge.
That wraps my list of amazingly fun things to do in Prague with your partner. Do you have any other recommendations? Share with me in the comments below.
