If you’re looking for even more great ideas, make sure to check the following posts:

1. See a Traditional Prague Black Light Theatre Performance

If you're looking for a traditional Czech experience without a language barrier - take an hour to enjoy a black light theatre show.

These shows don't have dialogue, but they still manage to evoke strong emotions and use audience participation.

Props and actors are all covered with fluorescent glow-in-the-dark material.

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

2. Go Underground on a Ghost Tour

Underground tours tend to draw a crowd for their mystery and spookiness.

This ghost tour combines the best of two types of tours - a history tour and a ghost tour.

You'll follow your guide through historic tunnels and under the city to learn about some of the scary people of the past.

Find tickets here.

3. Go to the Prague Castle Easter Market

From March 16th- April 7th, 2024, the Prague Castle grounds will be preparing for spring with the Easter Market. 

You’ll find vendor huts selling jewelry, crafts, glassware, toys, candles, and food. 

One of the traditional items for sale everywhere will be puppets in traditional clothing! 

While you're already on the castle grounds, if you want to learn more about its history and architecture, why not take a guided tour of Prague Castle

5. 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.

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
  • 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.

6. Take a Ride Down the Vltava River 

Spring is still around the corner, but March in Prague is beginning to escape winter temperatures.

This means it will be a bit more comfortable to get some sightseeing in from the water!

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.

7. Take the Family Glow-in-the-Dark Mini Golfing

If there's a cold or rainy day during March, there are still plenty of activities to do with the entire family!

Head inside to Prague Golf and Games for a round of UV light mini-golf.

What's a better bonding activity for your travel buddies than some friendly, glow-in-the-dark competition?

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 survived and been renovated multiple times.

March is a great time to visit since the bridge is usually packed with tourists during the summer and fall.

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

9. Visit the Theatre

For a few select dates during March, you'll be able to catch a performance at the Prague National Theatre.

Productions are tagged if they are in English or if they are family-friendly.

You could also do a Mozart Concert with 3-Course Dinner or see Swan Lake. The latter is quick to sell out, so be sure to book your ticket soon.

10. Take a Bus Tour of Prague

It's easy to see a lot of Prague in a short amount of time with the various bus tours available to take!

The most popular are the hop-on-hop-off tours that allow you to spend time at the sights most interesting to you.

Each bus tour comes with commentary available in multiple languages.

If you'd rather spend your time exploring a specific landmark, why not take a guided tour of Prague Castle?

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

11. Attend the One World Film Festival

This annual human rights film fest has taken place in Prague every March since 1999.

It is done in conjuction with the non-profit People in Need, a Czech human rights organization that works in 38 countries.

Documentaries are showcased and an international human rights award, the Homo Homini, is given.

The festival takes place March 20th through April 19th, 2024.

For more information, visit the One World Film Festival website.

12. Visit the Prague Easter Markets

Each year large Easter markets can be found in Old Town Square, Wencelas Square, and on the square in front of St. George's Bascilica.

These markets celebrate the coming spring through vibrant decoration and have traditional food, drink, and wares for sale.

This is the place to buy your hand-painted Easter eggs, jewelry, sweets, cakes, sausages, breads, and much more.

Smaller markets can be found on Kampa Island, at Havel's Market and in Republic Square.

The markets will be open between March 16th-April 7th.

13. Enjoy St. Mathew’s Fair

This fair has been celebrated since the 16th century at least, so you’ll get a good taste of a traditional Czech festival - updated for modern times, of course.

St. Mathew’s Fair takes place at the Prague Holešovice Exhibition Centre. There will be rides, games, and live entertainment. 

Don't forget to find the pastries and cotton candy (or candy floss!) to munch on while you're going between rides and shows.

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