9. Scale the Old Town Hall Tower
The lookout from the Old Town Hall Tower offers a stunning view of Prague's Old Town, and for a relatively cheap price as well, 110 czk which is only £4!
10. Visit the world's most beautiful library
The Klementinum is one of the largest building complexes in Europe, and contains a decadent Baroque library, the astronomical tower and the Vysehrad Codex. Tours of the building cost between 200-900 Czech Koruna (for families), so that's only £7-£10 for a single person and £30 for a family. Very reasonable, no?
The flights are cheap and the cost of staying there is far less than some of the more popular destinations in Western Europe. A true beauty offering history, culture and a little bit of everything in between, the city of Prague is a must visit this year. Here are our top ten tips for exploring the best sites and activities without breaking the budget. 1. Take in the view from Charles Bridge Charles Bridge is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Prague, and it won't cost you a penny to see it. Just stroll on and take in the amazing sights of the city! It is best to go early in the morning or late at night to avoid the big crowds, and maybe take a trip up the Charles Bridge Tower (for a mere 3 euros!) to get a 360-degree view of the city. 2. Take a free walking tour There are plenty of sightseeing tours in Prague, but many have become total tourist traps. So instead of losing valuable cash, opt for a free walking tour instead. Several companies, such as Discover Prague Tours, Sandemans New Europe and Good Tours can help you out with expert local guides who will show you the hidden nooks and crannies for free. 3. Visit Prague Castle Prague Castle is a must see. The biggest ancient castle in the world, it is gorgeous to look at. Since it's a popular tourist site, this is one of the more expensive sites on our list, but at 350czk which is roughly about £12, it's absolutely worth it. 4. Admire the view from Petrin Lookout Tower
