15 Photos That Will Make You Want to Move to Prague

Prague Castle Sunset - Move to Prague

There are many cities in the world, but only one of them is Prague.

When we first arrived in Prague, in August of 2014, we were immediately smitten. The city was gorgeous, laid back, easy to navigate and we felt extremely comfortable there. We left Prague two weeks later, vowing to return.

It took us another year to circle back to Prague, but return we did. Our goal was to stay for a month and explore the city, and the Czech Republic, in a more intimate fashion. And then a funny thing happened. As the days passed we found ourselves counting down.

“18 days till we leave, 16 days till we have to go, 14 days…oh my god we don’t want to leave!”

So we stayed. We rented an apartment in the lovely neighborhood of Vinohrady, and made Prague our home for the next 8 months. During that time we soaked in as much as we could see and explore, both in Prague and so many other wonderful places in the Czech Republic. During that time we came to a conclusion. The city was awesome. We were fully in love.

Prague became our favorite city in the world.

We want to bring some of the wonder and magic of Prague to the rest of the world, to showcase some of the magnificent views we were lucky enough to see. We hope these photos inspire you to pay the city a visit. Who knows, you might fall for Prague as hard as we did. You might even consider moving there. We wouldn’t blame you at all. A new countdown has begun. Only a 120 days till we return to Prague…

Vinohrady and Zizkov, Prague

The neighborhoods of Vinohrady and Zizkov. We lived under one of those spectacular red rooftops for 9 months. Pretty neat huh? That giant metal structure in the far middle is known as the TV Tower. It hated by nearly everyone when it was “erected” but has since grown on many.

The Palace Gardens in Prague are a great place to sit down and have a lunch, read a book, or just stare in awe. And white peacocks, too!

Riegrovy Sady sunset in Prague

There are a ton of great parks which afford stunning views in Prague. This one is one of our favorites. Located in Vinohrady, Riegrovy Sady was our go-to sunset spot. There are two beer gardens right next to this scenic hill, and yes, we spent a lot of time in them as well.

Prague is an architecture lover’s paradise. Stroll the Charles Bridge at night to see this impressive sight.

Prague, the City of a Hundred Spires

Prague is sometimes called The City of a Hundred Spires. More than a hundred, we reckon.

At least a hundred and one spires.

Prague Castle twilight, these photos will make you want to move to Prague

In our travel guide to Prague we called the city “Disney Land for Grown Ups”.

Does anyone disagree?

Naplavka riverbank

One of our favorite spots in the city is the Naplavka riverwalk. Spring, Summer, or Fall this is a great place to stroll during the day, and to partake in revelry at night.

sunsets in Prague

Ahhhh, Prague…we live for your sunsets. For most of the year the sun sets behind Prague Castle, as viewed from the Charles Bridge.

Often the sun salutes the City of a Hundred Spires with gorgeous red, orange, and purple hues before stepping out for the night.

Prague in the Winter

snow in Malastrana, Prague.

We are not huge fans of winter. It’s nice for a couple of weeks, but all in all we prefer to be warm, basking in golden sunlight. Prague was worth enduring a winter, however, and sights like these made it much easier to appreciate the change of season.

Such as this gorgeous scene in Namesti Miru.

This is one of our favorite squares outside of the center of the Prague (although locals will tell you that Namesti Miru is technically IN the center).

Swans and the Charles Bridge in Prague

These swans, chilling near the Charles Bridge must have agreed. They stayed through the winter as well.

Prague Christmas Market Old Town Square

The month leading up to Christmas is as merry and jovial as can be all around the city, as the famous Prague Christmas markets come to life. This market, in Prague’s Old Town Square was lively each and every day in December, making the start of winter much easier to bear.

So, have we convinced you to visit Prague yet?

On top of being beautiful we find Prague to be extremely affordable. Prague is a wonderful destination for backpackers and budget travelers, and can be explored for about $30 a day and less if you are smart about it.  The same things that make Prague great for backpackers also make it a wonderful destination for digital nomads.

So, budget traveler or not, you should visit Prague. As soon as possible.

We’ll see you there!

  1. Definitely one of my favorite cities in the world. Looking forward to getting back someday. I thought about moving there to teach English a couple years ago, but ended up going a different route. Such a beautiful city though, and for some reason I feel like I’ll find myself back there soon.

    1. I taught English there for four years – amazing experience – great memories. I visit friends there every other year. Such a rich part of my life!

  2. I Prague!
    Was there for 2 weeks in 2014 & totally fell in love with the city.
    One tick off my bucket list but definitely worth a return visit!

  3. I’m half Czech
    And i’m proud of that.
    Will be on my next travel destination.
    No. Not travel. I’m going “home” ☺

  4. Wow!! Great pics!
    I visited Prague in Feb 2015 and all those memories came right back while seeing these photos. Certainly, one of the most beautiful cities. And I must mention, the warm and welcoming nature of the Czechs. A must visit!

  5. Nice pictures! True, the city really has it all and defnitely is a great place to visit and to live as I can see. Where beer is cheaper than water :)Thanks for the inspiration, time to get back there again.

  7. I lived in mystical Prague from 2005 to 2011. Best years of my life without a doubt. The richest experiences, profound learning, unforgettable inspirations.. OMG I must go back one day. Now I live in Lisbon, Portugal, which is special in many ways too. But Prague is absolutely unique!.

    1. Manu, seems like you love Prague almost as much as we do. 🙂

      Michael and I will be in Lisbon at the end of January. Any tips for us?

  8. Wonderful pictures…I am am American living in Romania…I am also an artist…when is the best season to visit Prague? I am a Plein Air painter so I like to paint on location…also interested in locations and good places to stay.

    1. Hey J.D.

      Interesting time to be an expat in Romania, to say the least. We love Romania and its people and wish them all the best in ridding themselves of the cancer that is their corrupt political system.

      On to Prague, we have a fairly large amount of content from Prague and the Czech Republic. The best time to come is either in mid spring (late Aprilish) or late September till the end of October if you want to see some beautiful fall foliage.
