1. Kampa Island Trip

Though your ferry ride may require a small fee, everything to do on Kampa Island is free. It’s a charming little piece of land on the banks of the Vltava River, close to Charles Bridge. There are picturesque houses and parks to enjoy, including a string of houses right along the river, which has earned the island the nickname, “The Venice of Prague.”

2. Stag Moat

Stag Moat is the body of water that surrounds Prague Castle. There’s a lovely walking path along the water’s edge that wanders through green valleys and wood. It’s a great escape from the busy city. You can enter a peaceful realm to do some bird watching without wandering too far from the city center.

3. John Lennon Wall

Even though John Lennon never visited Prague, his memory is kept alive through a memorial wall southwest of Charles Bridge. Those seeking freedom of speech during the era of communism in Prague would write messages and paint murals on the wall.

4. Czech Museum of Music

Prague is a city steeped in musical history, a tradition documented in the The Czech Museum of Music based in the baroque former Church of Saint Mary Magdalane. The museum allows visitors in free from 2-6pm on the first Thursday of each month.

5. Stroll through the Wallenstein Gardens

In the lower part of the Malá Strana you’ll find the decorative and enjoyable Wallenstein Gardens. These beautifully preened and organized gardens are lined with fountains, trees and numerous bronze statues, and it’s free to enter. During the warmer months there are also many free concerts and performances taking place here so make sure to check out the schedule.
