Ask anyone who has been to Prague and they’ll tell you that one of the best shows you can see is the Black Light Theater performances. These surreal, psychedelic theatrical exhibitions are unlike anything you’ve seen before. Your eyes will seemingly play tricks on you as you witness impossible tricks and endeavors by these masterful artists. With neon colored costumes and black backgrounds and lighting, the actors and dancers on stage will weave stories that awaken the child wonder in us all.
This is the perfect performance for children, families, old and young. Everyone walks away with a huge smile on their face and stars dancing around their heads.
Running covers more ground in less time and therefore you get a bit further than you would if you were simply walking. While most runners aim to get out for a run or two while on vacation, sometimes it’s difficult to know where the best running routes are, especially if you are staying in the center of the city. See some of the favorite local running paths up and down the Vltava River, up Petrin Hill, and through Vysehrad.
These tours offer spectacular views of all of the most iconic sites in Prague, with some historical and cultural facts sprinkled in so that the run becomes an opportunity to learn about the significance of the buildings, parks and streets you are running through.
It doesn’t take an expert to see that Prague is chock full of some of the most amazing and inspiring architecture in Europe. But it does take an expert to explain in detail the true magnificence behind the exquisite structures. There is so much that can get lost when simply passing by one house after another, but these specialized guides are gifted with the ability to weave stories into the facts, making these tours mesmerizing and remarkable.
Choose from tours which focus on the classic architecture which has won Prague and the Czech Republic fame or one which seeks to show off the latest in contemporary architecture that Prague has been hiding from the world.
Get to see some of the true local artists who take to the streets and display their artwork for all to admire. Taking a street art tour will give you insight into the history of street art in Prague from the 1960’s till today. Then you’ll actually get a chance to make your own art on a legal wall with guidance and tips from the experts. This is truly how you leave your mark on something.
There are not many experiences which can be equally exhilarating and romantic at the same time. But a hot air balloon ride or a helicopter ride, sailing above sprawling green forests, intersected with small villages and castles atop rocky outcrops is one of those. These hot air balloon rides or helicopter rides will pass over central Bohemia at nearly 1,000 meters (3,000 ft) above the earth, presenting one stunning scene after another. One of the highlights is the grandiose Chateau Konopiste with its red-roofed spires.
The experienced pilots are knowledgeable guides and enjoy explaining the intricacies of flying as well as pointing out easily missed sights. And the second best thing about hot air ballooning (after the flying part of course) is that each flight toasts the successful flight with champagne!
If there is something we all share, no matter where we come from, it is the love of good food.

Your guide will be able to offer suggestions for the most typical dishes so that you can experience more than just fried sausages and cheese while you’re in Prague.
