Honeymoon Destination: Prague

One of the most popular honeymoon destinations in Central Europe (and the easiest to get to), Prague beats as the heart of the Czech Republic with ancient roots deeply planted in the region of Bohemia. While lovers may stand in the shadow of 9th-century Prague Castle before ambling between smatterings of medieval architecture.

In fact, despite the myriad of cobbled lanes aside the swan-flocked Vltava River, Prague is just as much a modern center for arts, food, and entertainment. History buffs and world travelers alike will agree that a honeymoon spent in Prague awakens your senses and your soul from one castle, cathedral, and pub crawl to the next.

Popular Destinations

Best Neighborhoods: If you and yours love to explore historic neighborhoods, then don’t miss a stroll through Old Town. With 13th century architecture homes and churches, this is one of the most notable areas in all of Prague. With sights like Old Town Hall, the Astronomical Clock, the Carolinum, the Municipal House, and the Estates Theater, couples will find themselves endlessly occupied.

And if you have still have some time on your hands, add the Castle District to your sightseeing tour too (on a different day of course). A city within a city, this maze of shops, castles, and observation points can easily monopolize an entire day.

Lobkowicz Palace: Accompanied by a free audio tour, couples should be sure to stop at the east entrance to the Prague Castle and drink in the unique history of the Lobkowicz family. With rare music manuscripts by Beethoven and Mozart on display among 22 other galleries, this is one of the most compelling ways to learn the history of the Czech people. There is also a restaurant on site with a panoramic terrace where you can nosh on pasta and taste the award-winning Lobkowicz wine and beer.

Famous Landmarks: If you happen to be a on a tight timeline, the St. Vitus Cathedral, Charles Bridge, and Prague Castle are three not to miss.

From the largest church in all of Prague to the most famous castle in the entire city (Prague Castle), see those and then venture across Charles Bridge to catch the local culture, artists, musicians, and locals in action between Old Town and Lesser Town.

Best Time to Visit

For honeymooners, spring may be the best time to visit, especially during the month of May when the flora bursts forth from months of hibernating. Summer is the most popular for tourists because of the warmer temperatures, but it can also be subjected to overcrowding and overpricing. If you happen to be honeymooning in Prague during winter, you will get to experience this city during one of the most magical (and decorated) times of the year.
