Prague lures millions of tourists each year with its World Heritage-listed medieval city center--a labyrinth of narrow lanes, bridges, cathedrals, and palaces overlooked by a thousand-year-old castle.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at St Barbara's Church and Food Tours. Get some historical perspective at Prague Astronomical Clock and Ossuary / The Cemetery Church. There's still lots to do: explore the historical opulence of Prague Castle, browse the exhibits of Lobkowicz Palace, stop by Prague Thrift Store, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Katedrala Svateho Vita.

To find where to stay, maps, reviews, and tourist information, you can read our Prague trip itinerary maker website .

Riyadh, Saudi Arabia to Prague is an approximately 9-hour flight. You'll gain 2 hours traveling from Riyadh to Prague due to the time zone difference.

Finish up your sightseeing early on the 6th (Tue) so you can travel to Krakow.
