Wondering what are the best photography locations and photo spots in Prague? Do you want to have a perfect Instagram feed with unique and original photos? Then you are at the right place! I prepared this ultimate “19 Instagram places in Prague” list just for you to guide you through some of the most picturesque or hidden places in Prague. Please note that there might be some famous tourist places missing. I know, 19 might be a lot, so I sorted these places into several groups.
- The John Lennon Wall (free)
Located just a few minutes walk from the Charles Bridge, The Lennon Wall is a place that has been filled with graffiti, art, paintings and quotes. It changes quite fast because new paintings cover the old ones, which means that whenever you come, you can have quite unique and original photo.
- Infinite book tunnel (free)
The infinite book tunnel is one of the places that are becoming more and more popular and you should definitely see it in 2019. It consists of 8000 books and is nicknamed as “the tower of knowledge.” Come in the morning to ensure that you don’t have to wait for a selfie with the endless number of books.
3. Prague Castle (free/paid)
Prague Castle is obviously one of the places you don’t want to miss. While you’re there, don’t forget to visit some of the gardens, moats and lookout places.
4. Clementinum Library (paid)
The Baroque library was voted one of the most beautiful libraries in the world in 2015. It was originally a part of the Jesuit college. Once you come inside, you can admire baroque architecture and frescoes. However, while you’re immersed in taking pictures, don’t forget that you’re still at the library and try to be as quiet as possible.
5. The Narrowest street in Prague (free)
One of the very little-known places is the Narrowest street in Prague. It’s so narrow that it needs traffic lights to ensure that people don’t get stuck in there. Definitely, a fun place for photoshoot!
6. The House of the Black Madonna (free)
Do you love minimalistic architectural shots? Then this is the photo spot for you. The house of the Black Madonna will enthral you with its’ lightbulb shaped staircase. Take one picture from the bottom to make sure the lightbulb will glow.
7. The Jewish Quarter (paid)
You have to pay for the entrance, however, this is another unique place to visit in Prague. Visit the famous Spanish Synagogue, Cemetry or the Pinkas Synagogue that has its’ walls covered with names of nearly 80 000 Jewish victims of the Holocaust. This place will take your breath away and maybe you won’t even want to take or share any photos.
8. Trojský most (free)
The Troja Bridge is a little bit away from the city centre, but it will capture your attention with its’ bowstring arch design. While taking your pictures, make sure that you don’t break the rules and use only the walking path to cross the river and take some awesome pictures.
9. Old Town Bridge Tower (paid)
The Gothic gateway is right at the side of the Charles Bridge. You will have to pay for an entrance (basic fee = 100 CZK) to get there, but you will be rewarded with the mesmerizing view of the Charles Bridge and Prague Castle. Try to visit this place to see the sunset, I swear you can get some amazing shots.
10. Vyšehrad (free/paid)
This place is especially famous for Czech people because it is part of our history. However, it is also a perfect spot for photographers who long for some high angle views of Prague.
11. Old Town Hall Tower (paid)
Obviously, this place should be marked as one of the top places because it’s the best place to visit while you’re at the Old Town Square. It’s almost 70 metres high and once you’re at the top, you can get some terrific Instagram shots of the oldest parts of Prague.
12. Petřín (free/paid)
You can either walk to this place from Prague Castle (I swear the stairs are perfect for photos!), or you can use a cable car from the station “Újezd”. You can visit the gardens under the top of the hill for some cute pics or take a tour of the lookout tower.
13. The Cross Club
You need to go there and see it. Ok? I promise you will get some perfect Instagram shots.
14. Skautský institute (free)
Located close to the Old Town Square, this place is not as busy or expansive as you would expect. The staff is friendly, and it is a favourite place of many Prague students. In the summer, you can sit at the courtyard balcony. Or, if you are lucky, you can sit at the niche and here you can take some good Instagram photos.
This place offers a unique industrial atmosphere. You can visit several stores, galleries, cinema or coffee bar. Just walk around, take pictures and enjoy.
