How to spend 24 hours in Prague

Check-in in the Four Seasons Hotel Prague

Located right at the heart of the city, and within walking distance from numerous major landmarks such as Charles Bridge, Prague Castle, Old Town Square, and the Rudolfinum -home to the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra- among others, the Four Seasons Hotel Prague brings guests right where all the action takes place.

Ideally situated, the Four Seasons Hotel Prague proves to be the ideal city break for 24 hours, perfect for travelers on business trips or on transit, allowing guests to completely immerse themselves into Prague’s history and culture in a short time span.

With accommodations boasting a redesign by Pierre Yves-Rochon, guests can expect a blend of Old-World charms with modern amenities and comfort across the 157 rooms and suites. The hotel itself operates within 3 historic buildings, each one from a distinct period, Neo-Renaissance, Baroque, and Contemporary. And when it comes to the interiors, guests are treated to an array of uniquely designed rooms, each with their nods to the three aforementioned periods.

Across the board, however, guests can expect the accommodation to be spacious, bright, featuring rich materials and textures throughout, whether it is the silk curtains, the damask walls, the plush furniture and beddings or the carpeted floors. The Renaissance rooms are particularly beautiful.

We highly recommend guests to opt for rooms and suites with views over Vltava River or Prague Castle, which is particularly stunning at night. The Premier River Room, the River Suite, the Duplex Suite with Vltava River View are some of our favorite rooms.

The Four Seasons Hotel Prague is also home to the Cottocrudo Restaurant and Bar, treating guests to a stunning Mediterranean menu. The Japanese-themed Miru is a seasonal pop-up restaurant and offers one of the most incredible and intimate dining experiences in the city.

Elsewhere, guests can also enjoy the comprehensive spa with signature treatments by Omorovicza, Manicure and Pedicure by Spa Ritual, and a fully equipped fitness center.

Explore the city in a private boat

One of the best ways to explore Prague while also making the experience more unique and interesting is to book a wooden boat and ride along the Vltava River.

The Four Seasons Hotel Prague offers the possibility to book one of their private wooden boat, where guests – alone or couples – can climb in for a ride along the river, along with a glass of Prosecco or even breakfast, lunch, or snacks.

Lunch at V Zátiší

A singular fine-dining experience at the heart of the city, V Zatisi brings the tastes of India to Prague.

Featuring a menu designed by Creative Chef Marek Sada and Executive Chef Igor Chramec, which includes both Czech and Indian classics alongside fusion recipes, V Zatisi offers an eclectic lunch experience that will delight those looking to experience new flavors. The extensive wine list similarly includes wines from all over the world, perfect to accompany any dish on the menu.

Our favorites:

Starter: Roasted Foie Gras

Mains: Farmer’s Tandoori Chicken Tikka Masala

Dessert: White Chocolate Crème Brulée

Try a Trdelnik

One of the defining aspects of any city is its cuisine, however there are always a few particular dishes or snacks that are beloved by everyone, especially the locals. And the Trdelnik is definitely a favorite.

Rustic in its preparation and appearance, the trdelnik is one of those items that’s become part of the culinary heritage of Prague. A preparation of dough that’s wrapped around a stick and then cooked over the fire before being coated with a mixture of sugar and nuts. Various venues will offer fancy fillings for the trdelnik such as vanilla or chocolate cream.

While the cake is widely available all over the city, we recommend going to the small bakeries or independent shops which still prepare it the old-fashioned way. During our trip, we had come across a quiet little shop located somewhere between Saint Nicholas’ Church and the Old Town Square.

Diner at Miru

Located on the rooftop of the Four Seasons Hotel Prague, Miru is a seasonal pop-up restaurant that invites guests to relish some of the best Japanese cuisine in town, accompanied by stunning views of the city and Vltava River.

Designed as a peaceful Japanese garden, Miru is a quiet, tranquil, and intimate restaurant, serving only four tables. The experience is almost surreal as guests get to enjoy the exquisite dishes of Executive Chef Marco Veneruso and Mitsuru Tsukada.

Miru offers a 9-course tasting menu.

*Miru is currently closed, but will reopen in Summer 2023.
