Prague this is not only Prague Castle, Charles Bridge and Old Town Square with the astronomical clock. Here are some tips for walks and off-the-beaten-track locations with no tourist crowds to expect.
Almost a neighbor to the Prague Congress Centre the Vyšehrad Castle (10 min walk) boasts amazing views of the whole Prague district and Vltava River. An ideal place for morning, lunch break or evening walk during the congress.
This place served as the first headquarters of the Czech princes in the Prague region founded in about the 7th century. The visitors of the Vyšehrad Castle can also visit the Slavín Cemetery, which is a resting place of many Czech culture icons, including Bedřich Smetana, Antonín Dvořák, Alfons Mucha, Karel Čapek and many others.
Moreover, there is a beautiful „Beer Garden“ called „Na Hradbách“. Cheap beer and a good Balkan grill, very informal seating ideal for those warm days.
Another short walk -cross Nuselský Bridge and visit Karlov with famous church „Nanebevzetí Panny Marie a sv. Karla Velikého v Praze na Karlově“. It is a quiet place.
We also recommend other panoramic views than the one from the Prague Castle.
We would like to recommend you Prague districts next to the city center where the locals often meet with families and friends. In those districts, you can find nice cafeterias, bars, very good restaurants, mostly with fair prices and good/high quality.
This is a popular Saturday market location as well as street/river party place. Just walk from the Prague Congress Centre through Vyšehrad down to the river side and go downstream. This section of the river side is full of bars and boat bars. The opening hours and number of parties are weather related. During September evenings keep warm clothes.
