Never underestimate the entertainment factor of just walking around the town, especially in the Gothic capital of Prague. From the point of view of fresh eyes, every street corner, bridge, clock tower and castle is a picture-perfect postcard sight ready to be enjoyed for free.

Views from the Charles Bridge are so inspiring and so many couples propose from its vantage points that it has become a cliché with photographers planted in position at the ready. Smile! 

Prague's best open-air flower and produce market is a block toward the Old Town Square from the north side of Wenceslas Square. Created in the 13th century for wholesale trade commerce, today it is a place for all residents (and tourists!) to buy provisions. In an attempt to keep it real, all sellers are required to produce their own products. The result is a refreshing family of farmers, gardeners, craftspeople and you.

Join the crowds during the striking in of each hour under the 15th-century town hall clock at the Old Town Square. Awe-striking tourists on a daily basis from 8 AM-9 PM in warmer months and 8 AM-8 PM in the winter; the clock rings for free.

Visit the National Museum on the first Monday of the month and admission is free. This is where one can see shell marks on the façade of the building which appears to be, (to invading armies, anyway), an important edifice dedicated to government policy. It is, however unexpectedly, home to a natural history museum. The first floor displays minerals, rocks and meteorites and the second floor exhibits zoological and paleontological finds.
