2) See Henry Rollins Live

If you're a millennial or older, chances are you're at least somewhat familiar with the work of Henry Rollins.

He has played the field as an entertainer, putting in work as a stand-up comedian, an actor, a musician, and now a speaker.

Rollins will be making a public speaking appearance in Amsterdam on February 5th, 2022. This is an excellent opportunity to see a great entertainer perform live.

3) Go on a Pub Crawl

Prague has some of the best beer in the world, but unless you know what to look for, you might feel lost entering a pub or bar in this city.

If you want to familiarize yourself with the best brews and cocktails in the area, consider taking a Prague pub crawl.

Here are a few of the best options:

4) Take a Sightseeing Tour Down the River or Through Town

There are multiple great tours available to take in Prague this February! A very popular way to see the city is from the River Vltava.

Dinner cruises are a great option for enjoying a buffet and seeing Prague lit up at night. A cheaper option is a 50-minute boat cruise during the day.

If you'd rather spend your time exploring a specific landmark, why not take a guided tour of Prague Castle? There are even some tours that are free!

For travelers on a budget, you can also take a pay-what-you-like walking tour of the city.


5) Attend a Sporting Event

February is a great month for catching the winter sports. Prague has two football teams that are playing home games!

Football/Soccer

Ice Hockey

You can see all the sporting events here.

6) Experience a Medieval Dinner

Krčma u Pavouka is a special restaurant with a medieval theme, so it's designed to look like it came right out of the middle ages.

In addition to serving period accurate dishes, they also provide live entertainment from dancers, fire spinners, and other types of performance artists.

If you've ever wanted to experience what a meal might have looked like back in medieval times, this is an excellent opportunity. Best of all, you can get dinner and a show with unlimited drinks for just €49!

Book your seat or learn more.


7) Go Ice Skating in Old Town

While winter is still hanging around, you can have fun ice skating outdoors through the end of February.

There is a small fee to skate as well as rent skates to use.

The ice rink will be located at Letna Plain.

  • Prices: Free admission
  • Skate Rental: 100 CZK
  • Dates: February 1st - February 28th, 2022
  • Learn more here.

NOTE: Some free walking tours go through Old Town, so you may want to consider this activity either before or after some ice skating. 


8) Visit Charles Bridge

The oldest bridge in Prague is still a popular way for pedestrians to cross the Vltava River. Construction began in 1357 under the orders of King Charles IV, and it has remained in use throughout its many changes and renovations.

February is the perfect time to visit since the bridge is usually packed with tourists during the summer and fall.

Not many visitors know that it is possible to climb the towers built on either end of the bridge for the equivalent of a few Euros.

For the quietest atmosphere and a great view of the city lit up at night, we suggest visiting after dark.

If you're looking for more free activities, take a look at our full post here.


9) See a Traditional Prague Black Light Theatre Performance

If you're looking for another traditional Czech experience - and one where you won't have to worry about a language barrier - take an hour to enjoy a black light theatre show.

These shows are non-verbal but still manage to evoke strong emotion and use audience participation. Props and actors alike are covered with fluorescent glow-in-the-dark material that stands out under UV light.

Find tickets for performances on Sundays, Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays in Prague.


10) Save Money With a Tourist Pass

No matter what you’re planning to do while visiting Prague, chances are a tourist pass will help you save a lot of money on several popular activities and attractions.

There are currently two types of pass in Prague – all-inclusive and prepackaged. 

The all-inclusive pass includes admission to dozens of popular attractions for a specific amount of time (2, 3, or 4 days).

Prepackaged passes include specific attractions and tours for one flat price.

While this option is good for people who only have a few activities planned, the amount of money you save will be limited.

With an all-inclusive pass, the amount you save is determined by how much you use the pass to do – if you power through a lot of different activities each day, you could save over 50% on everything!

Here are some of the best attractions included with Prague tourist passes:

  • Prague Zoo
  • Prague Castle
  • Old Town Hall
  • Jewish Museum
  • National Museum
  • Petřín Observation Tower
  • Astronomical Observatory
  • Prague Historical Bus Tour
  • Prague Venice River Cruise
  • Basilica of St. Peter & St. Paul

Some tourist passes also include skip-the-line admission at certain locations, allowing you to save both time and money.

No matter which option you choose, you should be able to save at least 25% - 50% off general admission prices.

For more details about how to use these services, please read our post covering Prague tourist passes.


UNCONFIRMED: Enjoy St. Mathew's Fair

This fair has been celebrated since the 16th century at least, so you'll really get a good taste of a traditional Czech festival here!

St. Mathew's Fair typically begins in February. There will be rides, games, and live entertainment.

This year, the fair is adding a farmer's market.

This is the perfect event for the whole family! For more kid-friendly activities, check out our full post.

NOTE: This event has yet to be confirmed for February 2022.
