Day 2: Explore the Josefov- the Jewish town quarter
Begin your Day 2 of the 3 days in Prague by exploring Josefov- the Jewish town quarter of Prague which is believed to have settled in the 10th century. Josefov is completely surrounded by the Old Town and provides the best insights into the Jewish history. The major attractions here are Jewish Cemetery; Old New Synagogue; and Prague Jewish Museum.
Enjoy a leisurely lunch at one of the cafes before you head to another attraction.
Prague Dancing House
Grab a quick beer and head to the modern day architectural wonder of Prague named the Dancing House and nicknamed Fred and Ginger. Located on the Vltava riverfront, and strikingly different from the surroundings full of Gothic, Baroque, and Art Nouveau buildings that Prague is famous for, the Dancing House resembles a pair of dancers. The edifice is erected on a property of great historical importance. It is the same site where a house was destroyed by the U.S. bombing in 1945. The Dancing House is an ideal place if you wish to stroll out of the tourist centre.
Boat Tour: There’s no better way than a boat trip over the Vltava river to spend a gorgeous evening in Prague. The rides begin at Dvořákovo nábřezí and go to Vyšehrad and back. You can see the best sights of Prague illuminated at night. If you want a small boat or paddle boat, you can hire one near Zofin for a reasonable amount.
If you are visiting Prague during the summer season, no better place than Náplavka at the river bank to witness a beautiful sunset behind Prague Castle, enjoy the local music and beer and make some local friends.
