Prague is full of magical adventures and attractions and it provides endless excitement to every visitor of this beautiful, heritage city. Some say that Prague is even more beautiful at night when it has fewer crowds, unique evening tours and stunning monuments and buildings, lit in different colors. The illuminated statues and pillars add an element of romance to an already fairytale-like city, making it more breathtaking against the dark night sky. Wandering the streets, a yellow glow settles like a welcoming halo, softening the sharp edges of centuries-old architectural monuments, and polishing the cobblestones, embedded in old neighborhood back alleys. To start an unforgettable night trip, take note of these top nine amazing activities, to make the most of this Czech capital city.
1. Join a frenzied Prague Pub Crawl
Indulge in a party of booze-imbibing culture on this exciting pub crawl, through the city’s most dynamic pubs and bars. The Prague Pub Crawl introduces you the best night life in the city, where you’ll meet new people, have some drinks and party till dawn. The evening starts off with a welcome shot of absinthe at the Crawl’s very own bar in Old Town then proceeds to other bars nearby and finishes the night in a multi-floor music club, close to Charles Bridge.

3. Quench your thirst at Letná Beer Garden
One of the top local things to do is head to one of Prague’s beer gardens and the crowd favorite is none other than the Letná Beer Garden. With an amazing panorama, perched on Letná Hill, the city unfolds before your eyes and you can see as far as Žižkov and Vyšehrad. You can buy a takeaway beer from a small food stand and grab a picnic table, or sit on a terrace after you order a liquid bread (local way of saying beer) and other snacks, such as grilled kielbasa.

Jam Café claims to be the first “casting café” in Europe, where you can daydream about your forthcoming show-biz success, while enjoying a cup of tea or a wide selection of spirits.
To experience the most out of this bar, go on a Monday night for swing lessons, followed by a mini-party, or try to visit on Tuesday night for a free Salsa dance lesson. But if you feel like dancing the Tango, go every Thursday night.
