Tomas Rosicky - Gunners fans rejoice, one of the club's most beloved stars calls Prague his hometown, and he's something of a hero over here, having received 100 international caps for the Czech Republic - 'Super, super Tom...'
Sparta Prague - The city's biggest football club also happens to be the country's most successful with a whopping 33 league titles and 16 cup wins in their 121 year history. Try that for size Manchester United!
Franz Kafka - Who?!? Kafka is only one of the most influential European writers in the history of modern literature, and while you probably won't have read any of his stuff unless you've studied literature at University level, its artists of this high status that make Prague such an alluring place to visit.
Charles Bridge - This is definitely one for the postcards, Charles Bridge is seriously good-looking and you're bound to walk across it at some point during your Prague stag do - and even if you don't, it's worth seeking out just to say 'I've been there'.
Dancing House - Nope, you aren't drunk, this building is basically a massive optical illusion. With one side that's totally distorted, it looks a bit like a real-life modernist painting, and a selfie with the Dancing House will make for an epic profile picture - just make sure you call dibs on it; otherwise every lad will be copying you!
Jindrisska Tower - For the best views of Prague's skyline, a trip up this awesome monument is definitely in order. What's more is that it genuinely looks like something out of an Assassin's Creed game - although we doubt your stags can free-run like Ezio!
Hemingway Bar - Ernest Hemingway - Storied author, world-wise traveller and an infamously hard-drinking aficionado. This stylish bar is the perfect place to race a glass in Hemingway's good name with a smorgasbord of gentlemanly cocktails to pick from. Cheers, Ernie. Read more here...

If the preserved body of a cow can win the Turner Prize, then surely a sirloin can? Find out here.
Give us a hand - Inside the Church of St. James the Greater, there's a mummified forearm just before the tomb entrance - legend has it that a jewel thief tried to steal from the alter of the Virgin Mary, before her statue came to life and grabbed his arm. The monks couldn't get Mary to let go, so they had to cut the limb off - grisly.
The Turk of Ungelt - In the Ungelt area of the city, legend has it that there's a ghost of a young Turk that once loved a girl so much that he returned to his home country to receive a blessing so that he could ask for her hand in marriage, but on his return he found out she had already married - so naturally, he chopped off her head and immediately regretted his decision, trapping him in the world of the living forever in an eternal search to reunite the severed head with the body of his beloved. We reckon he needs to give Jeremy Kyle a call...
Astronomical Clock - A visit to the Astronomical Clock is a must when in Prague. It'll make for some great holiday pictures, and it's genuinely interesting once you start taking an interest in the symbolism behind the different moving pieces in this intricate and famous cultural landmark. It's best seen on the hour where the crowds gather and the 12 apostles parade past the windows.
Prague Castle - This is the largest ancient castle in the world according to The Guinness World Book of Records, and it's seriously epic. It looks like something from Game of Thrones and it's practically impossible to avoid quoting the show when you're touring the grounds which cover a total area that's bigger than seven football fields.
Cathedral - It's absolutely massive and you can't miss it - Prague's Cathedral is undoubtedly impressive. Highlights include the huge entrance, the baroque tomb of St. John of Nepomuck and the tomb of St. Vitus who is said to ward off dog bites, lightning and oversleeping - nice one.
Absintherie - Now you can tell from the name of this brilliant bar that you need to go careful within these walls. Absinthe is not to be trifled with (especially if it's made in Prague, the locals love the stuff) but in the small doses that the city's Absintherie deliver it in, it's actually delicious. And where else in the world can you try Absinthe Beer? Get your fix here.
Prague Beer Museum - This might just be the most appropriately named pub - ever. This venue is always heaving and with 30 Czech-produced beers on tap, there's never been a better place to enjoy the finest brews this country has produced. The only question is which beer will you try next?
Joy Burger Bar & Grill - Big ones, small ones, ones with eggs on 'em, Joy Burger Bar does things with beef patties and brioche buns that other restaurants could only dream of. But it's not all about the meat sandwiches within these trendy walls. Order the totally unique Veal Schnitzel or if you're feeling all Man vs Food, take on the Joy Pork Ribs glazed in BBQ sauce. Find out more...
Déjà Vu - We can only assume the reason why this nightclub is called "Déjà Vu" is because once you've been here, you'll want nothing more than to come back again and again. Whole weekends can be lost partying to the sounds of the city's top DJs and drinking with the locals in the laid-back lounge bar. Any regrets? None at all. See more...
Radost FX - The neon party paradise that is Radost FX has become a permanent fixture in Prague's vibrant nightlife and for good reason; it's totally different from anywhere else in the city, the UV artwork on the walls is simply incredible and the eclectic soundtrack has something for everybody. Get the party started here.
O1ne Club Prague - This futuristic nightclub has LED screens for walls, gorgeous girls dancing on podiums and more spirits hanging from the ceiling than a Russian mafia den. And after 15 years of decadence, Prague's hottest party spot is showing no signs of turning down the music any time soon. We salute them, and so should you. Find out more...
John Lennon Wall - 'Imagine all the people' who have come to Prague without visiting this epic cultural landmark. After his assassination in 1980, somebody had the guts to spray-paint a picture of Lennon on a wall in a lonely square near the French embassy with a load of Banksy-esque graffiti and some of The Beatle's lyrics. The cops tried to cover it up, but the activists behind the display just kept on adding to it, to the point where the authorities have given up trying to stop them.
Burrito Loco - Hangover food reinvented. You'll find several 24/7 Burrito Loco's dotted around the Czech party capital, so you're never far away from a soft tortilla filled with delicious, traditional Mexican ingredients no matter the time of day. Loco for burritos? It's time to hit up Burrito Loco. Arrriba! Find out more...
Jan Hus Statue - You might come across this unique looking statue on your travels across Prague, but even if you don't, there are plenty of reasons to pay it a visit. With a flowing cape and the statues dark colors, he looks a little Batman-ish if we're being truly honest - Jan Hus was a hero in his own right though, having sacrificed his life for his revolutionary ideas on religion.
Old Town Hall - The Old Town Hall is a bit of a hotspot for history in Prague - think of it as the city's version of the Sept in Game of Thrones. There are white crosses on the ground to mark where 27 protestant nobles were beheaded in 1621, as well as a plaque commemorating a victory by the Red Army in Slovakia. The building itself was actually partially blown up by the Nazi's a day before the Soviets booted them out of Prague - talk about a dramatic past.
TV Tower - Nope, the offensively 80s building that sticks out into the skyline isn't a UFO about to start an Alien invasion - it's the city's TV Tower, erected in the golden year of 1985. And before you ask, yes, those are model babies climbing up the side of the tower and no, we don't know why they're there!
Fighter Jet - In an activity that's practically exclusive to Prague, you can take to the controls of a MiG 15 or an Aero L-39 and actually fly a fighter jet! You'll have a trained pilot who'll do all the hard flying, so you can sit back, relax and feel the need, 'the need for speed...'
