Visit the Nuclear Bunkers
Amongst all the WW1 and WW2 history around Europe, it is rare to see any remnants of the Cold War. The Soviets planned on sitting out in Prague in case of a nuclear attack and you can visit the different bunkers all around the city.
The bunker still has gas masks and clothes hanging around serving as ghostly reminders of the past. This eerie yet unique place should be a part of the itinerary in Prague because when else can you have this experience?
Have you ever wanted to wander inside the head of an artist? Well, this is the closest you can get. Based on his imagination, Czech artist Reon created Argondia in an old mill near Petrin Hill, just outside of Prague.
The building is full of paintings and one of the best parts is the Magic Cave. Walk through the psychedelic hallways and enjoy the day walking around in magic.
Did we just say human arm? That too, decayed? What! Well, when we said unusual, we meant unusual. If you look up as you enter the Church of St. James, you can see an actual mummified human arm which is around 400 years old.
It is known as the Thief’s arm and the legend around tells the story of a robber that came in to steal jewels off of the Virgin Mary statue. The church didn’t take kindly to this inquisition and hung his arm up as a warning to others.
If you’ve ever wondered what it must be like to be a Soviet soldier, an American sniper, or just a main character in a Wild West movie, this place is for you.
If you love adventurous and adrenaline-inducing activities, the Prague gun range has something for everyone. With varying distances, 4 open-air ranges, and a variety of legendary guns, it is one experience that you will leave Prague talking about.
We did say you’re mistaken if you think Prague isn’t quirky. On the grounds of Museum Kampa, you will giant barcode-faced babies just crawling around. This is all thanks to Prague-born artist David Cerny.
These babies are incredibly scary but provide a great quirky photo opportunity. Another one of those things that you might leave behind physically, but mentally, you may not.
