With only six days left before I leave for Prague, I have been thinking a lot about the new places I am going to visit during my stay. Being a city of adventure, Prague has so much to offer, from live entertainment to restaurants to outdoor events. After doing some research the past few months, I came up with my definitive “must list” for my visit to Prague. Let the exploring begin!
Prague | Must List
One | Meet Factory
Hosting live music and art shows, free movie series, galleries, and workshops, The Meet Factory is a creative heaven. The tickets to shows are usually affordable and the offerings are immense. I cannot wait to grab a pivo and enjoy some of the talents The Meet Factory will showcase this summer.

Two | Hot Chocolate at Cafe Kaficko
As a lover of both music and food alike, my next stop has to be Cafe Kaficko. This small cafe has, what is said to be, the best hot chocolate in all of Prague. Despite the fact that it will probably be warm during my stay in the city, I still plan on seeing what all the hype is about and trying the hot chocolate for myself.
Three | Franz Kafka Museum
A renowned author born in the Czech lands, Kafka remains a very strong part of the culture of the country to this day. Even though this museum has only been around for ten years, it is a must see for me because of the many exhibits and showcased samples of Kafka’s work. It also makes the list because of a statue called Piss that is located right outside the museum. This controversial work by Cerny brings in a ton of tourists hoping to snap a picture of the two men midstream.

Four | Petrin Hill
Rising from the center of Prague, Petrin Hill provides breathtaking views of the city and surrounding areas. There is nothing more beautiful to me than looking down and seeing hundreds of brightly colored roofs and a city full of energy. The hill is also home to the Petrin Lookout Tower, which was designed to resemble the Eiffel Tower.

Five | The Dancing House
The last must see on my list is the peculiar, but incredibly special, Dancing House. Nicknamed the Fred and Ginger Building, this structure is almost fluid-like in appearance. It was designed right after the fall of communism and symbolizes, to many Czech people, the much desired freedom of expression. The unusual design is something I find most intriguing and I cannot wait to see this building in person.
