1. Prague Signal Festival
For 4 days each year during the Signal Festival, various light displays are created throughout the city. Using light, several buildings, including famous landmarks, in Prague are transformed to look like modern art. Using their website you can find out where in the city you can enjoy the beautiful displays. And because it is done throughout the city, you can just visit every display for free. The exact dates and more information can be found here!
2. Visit the grounds of Prague Castle
Looking to visit a real medieval castle? Look no further, you should go to Prague Castle. It was built around 880 and it has become one of the most important monuments of the Czech Republic. Furthermore, it is one of largest castle complexes in the world, which includes several other old buildings.
