Ultimate sightseeing for the day:

Take tram 22 up to Prague Castle (stop: Prazsky Hrad)
Walk around the grounds, they’re all free to enter
Enter st. vitus cathedral, located in the middle of the castle
Go to Castle ground’s vineyard, have a glass, or few, walk down the steps from there.

Walk toward Vinarna Certovka, known as the narrowest street in Prague. Take a pic.
Walk through Mala Strana area, get to Charles Bridge
In the first third area of the bridge take the stairs down and visit The lennon Wall

From there walk to Park Kampa to see some of Cerny’s art, penguins, the babies without faces. He has work all over the city, I recommend doing a quick google search of his stuff and stumbling across it

If anything, go into this hotel (Radisson, and have a few cocktails..it’s quite a special place)
One of my favorite cafes..very French inspired.
Le caveau

Also near here is a walk to the Czech TV tower. Food inside sucks, the bar is awesome, and sunset view from here is just insane

Visit a few bars…
U Sudu, keep walking down the stairs (they open the downstairs at 6pm..keep going further and further until you can’t anymore..follow your nose, tons of spliffs floating around in here)

Clubs: Nebe at Karlovo Namesti,
Street called Dlouha…tonnns of bars and clubs to visit.. Bombay, Harley’s, Steampunk, James Dean, Hangar

Go to the dancing house one evening, take the ramp down to the riverwalk, “naplavka”, drink with the locals, listen to music, enjoy

Definitely buy tram tickets. I would skip the multi-day tickets, and instead, go into a shop at a metro station, or even the corner-stores (Potraviny) and pick up multiple single use tickets (they’re 90min duration for 32czk)
Keep a stash in your wallet and always get them stamped the second you enter the tram or metro

Be weary of your surroundings. I really have not had much of an issue in this city. Local people here aren’t aggressive unless you show aggression first

Never hail a cab directly from the street. Uber is a sure shot win

If you are not doing international data, then I recommend coming with an unlocked phone and visiting Vodafone. For 500czk ($20) you can get a Sim+500mb of data, which should be sufficient
