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 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 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, Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays 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 the scariest of people from the past.

Find tickets here.


3) Take a Trip to Terezin Concentration Camp

The town of Terezin held a military fortress that had been converted to a concentration camp during World War II.

 

 

You’ll learn a lot about the history of the town as well as the devastating effects of the Nazi occupation and inhumane treatment of Jews and other war prisoners.


4) See James Blunt and Others in Concert

This March there are just a few big headliners coming through Prague. Singer-songwriter James Blunt is one of them!

You can find all of Prague’s live concerts here.

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.

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) See Swan Lake

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

 

 

The Best of Swan Lake

If you’re interested in ballet but don’t want to see the full performance, why not get some tickets to this performance of highlights from Swan Lake?

Performances happen most Tuesdays and the last two Fridays of the month.

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) Prague Half Marathon

The Sportisimo Prague Half Marathon is one of the most popular races in Central Europe. It draws running enthusiasts of all ages, including families and school children.

 

 

Whether or not you’re working on your personal record, the entire running route will have a fun, family-friendly atmosphere on March 28, 2020.
