    We asked you over on our Facebook page for your top tips on what is unmissable in Prague. Here's what you told us...





    Relax on Letna Hill

    Jerry Stroh says:

    The Letna Beer Garden on a sunny day.

    Genevieve Smith says:

    Park Letna... The view of the whole city, the atmosphere, the beer garden... What more could you ask for?

    Friedi Hänsel says:

    Letna Beer Garden - drinking delicious beer and having a great view of Prague.

    Marie-Pascale Dumont says:

    A picnic with friends in Letna Park in the late afternoon. The view on Prague from there is gorgeous.



    Experience the magic of Charles Bridge

    Sylvia Chan says:

    Night view of Prague Castle and Charles Bridge.

    Palak Dave says:

    A walk on Charles bridge and buying a painting.

    Daniela Pavlovi?ová says:

    A walk through the Charles Bridge during a cold, foggy night or dawn.

    Angela FJ says:

    Make a wish on the Charles Bridge.

    Kong Pheik Vay says:

    The Prague Cello Quartet at Charles Bridge!

    Patricia Bolt DuLany says:

    Charles Bridge in the evening. We arrived in Prague in the evening and the view from the bridge was overwhelmingly beautiful.

    Lay Kin says:

    Walking across the Charles Bridge in the autumn evening...without goals and time limits.

    Tess Amarli Lillian says:

    Go to the five-story club at night and then leave just as the sun is rising and watch it from Charles Bridge.

    Lucas Ibbari says:

    Traditional kiss in Charles Bridge for new year!



    Wander around Old Town

    Amaia Ceinos says:

    The old neighborhood which is very pretty and lively.

    Damla Baber says:

    If you want to live another century, don't miss its snowy weather in the old city.

    Jonathan Peter Barker says:

    Wandering through the old town and discovering local bars and restaurants where few tourists know.



    Make your mark at John Lennon Wall

    College Tourist says:

    The John Lennon Wall! It is a great way to connect with people around the world who have come to pay homage and leave their mark. It's constantly changing because people continue to add to the wall's aesthetic.

    Gloria Avalos says:

    Lennon Wall!

    Phil Rees says:

    John Lennon Wall.



    Explore the Jewish quarter

    Lyndsay Bain says:

    Prague Jewish quarter and cemetery... The history/stories.

    Rachel Lulay says:

    Hradcany, Vyserad cemetary and the Jewish quarter.

    Wayne Van Rensburg says:

    The Jewish cemetery! Old and filled with voices from the past.



    Marvel at the astronomical clock

    Lucas Cavalcante says:

    The astronomical clock working!

    Mónica Oliveira says:

    Watch the astronomical clock ringing.

    Chuchu Chang says:

    Astronomical clock! The Old Town Square in the very morning with few pedestrians - quiet, peaceful.

    Patricia Miriam Rodriguez says:

    Sit in a restaurant in front of the astronomical clock, enjoy a fabulous Czech beer and while people-watching the miriads of tourists and street artists in the square.



    Sample the microbreweries and beer gardens

    Travel Photo Report says:

    Definitely micro-breweries, plenty of them there - Zly Casy bar for real Czech atmosphere and 20 beers on tap; Vysehrad and its beer garden; Letna or Riegerovy sady beer garden.

    Friedi Hänsel says:

    The beer garden in Riegrovy Sady - drinking beer, watching sports and meeting people.

    Juraj Ulbrich says:

    Brewery U Medvidku, with delicious meals and the best beer.



    See the city by night

    Layla Banaie says:

    Definitely to just roam around the city late at night or early in the morning (after 22:00, but before 08:00) because otherwise, the streets are jammed packed with people! You can appreciate the city more when it's quieter and you have the streets to yourself! The walk from Hrad?any back to my hostel near Wenceslas Square at 02:00 was beautiful to experience and definitely the most memorable part of my visit to Prague!

    Jean Mejias says:

    The Castle is something you shouldn't miss. At night the view from there is awesome.



    Eat the tastiest food

    Bonnie Carroll Nelson says:

    Susta Strudl at Jeseniova 29. The region is known for their strudels and this place had the best. It's not in a touristy area, but it's worth the visit. You order at the window and receive your piping hot strudel that's about a foot long and covered in powdered sugar.

    Donna Greenan says:

    I always took visitors to Havelská Koruna restaurant. It serves real Czech food, not the expensive rubbish in the tourist restaurants. Many tables seat six people so you often share a table and get to enjoy nice conversation with someone new. I can definitely recommend the fruit dumplings for dessert, or maybe one for starter and one for dessert.

    Nick Fielding says:

    Small local cafés and bars away from tourist areas ... they sell the most delicious food at next-to-nothing.

    Holly Clark says:

    Drinking plum brandy in the pub and eating goulash.



    Visit the animals

    Kiara Gallop says:

    The Zoo! Probably the best zoo I've ever been to, and if you're an animal lover, you can quite easily waste a day here! It's a bit of a trek from the centre of Prague though so probably best to hop on a bus or tram.

    Jerry Stroh says:

    The Letna Beer Garden, on a sunny day. And Prague Zoo. They have a new elephant, gorilla, giraffe, hippo, goat and many other babies right now. The Africa part of the zoo has been expanded. Highly recommended.



    And that's not all... You can find even more great tips from our Facebook fans here and here. Hopefully these top tips will help you make to most of your visit to Prague.
