Begin your day within the posh surrounds of Augustine, a Luxury Collection Hotel, near the heart of Old Town. As a perk of booking through our agency, enjoy a complimentary buffet breakfast for two before you set out to explore the city.

After you've finished your breakfast, make your way to Old Town, just a few minutes drive away. Head to the historical square-Staromestske namesti -to experience the beating heart of Prague. Visit the towering Baroque Church of St. Nicholas, the Gothic House at the Stone Bell and the Rococo Kinsky Palace. Make sure to stay to witness the striking of the astronomical clock at Old Town Hall, the largest clock of its kind in the world.
Continue to get a true, historic sense of the city by walking the streets of the Clementinum, one of Europe's largest building complexes. Here you can explore remarkable devices in the Astronomical Tower, be inspired by the eye-opening frescoes and ancient globes in the Baroque Library, and see why the unique installations of the Mirror Chapel provide an ideal space for classical music concerts.
Next, cross the Manes Bridge to experience another part of the city. A scenic 20-minute walk will find you at one of Prague's greatest landmarks: St. Vitus Cathedral, with its iconic Gothic style, soaring vaulted ceilings and menacing gargoyles. Inside, light pours in through colorful stained-glass windows, illuminating all the breathtaking interior details. Don't be put off by the crowds. There is almost always a queue to get inside, but this architectural marvel is certainly worth the wait.
The area of the city surrounding Prague Castle and the iconic Cathedral is referred to as Mala Strana, or Lesser Quarter. Marked by narrow lanes and plentiful local squares, it's the perfect destination to wander for lunch. Tiny charming pubs and quaint local restaurants abound, so grab a bite and continue on a self-guided walking tour, admiring the picturesque canals, Baroque palaces and Renaissance burgher houses of this historic neighborhood.
After meandering through Lesser Quarter, pass back over into Old Town via the river at Charles Bridge. This bustling pedestrian artery is filled with street musicians, artists and vendors surrounded by some of the best views and most prominent architectural landmarks of the city.
Old Town is packed with options for dinner, including two of Prague's famed Michelinstarred restaurants-Field and La Degustation Boheme Bourgeois. Enjoy a five-star meal followed by an opera, ballet or musical performance at the legendary National Theater, one of the Czech Republic's greatest Neo-Renaissance buildings.
Don't turn in for the evening just yet! A seven-minute walk will bring you to one of the city's most curious modern landmarks: 45 tons of mirrored stainless steel, twisting and turning on 42 independent layers until eventually depicting the head of one famous Bohemian novelist, Franz Kafka. This kinetic art installation is a Prague staple. Complete the full literary experience with a nightcap at the awardwinning Hemingway Bar in Prague's Old Town before returning to your hotel.
