Atlas Obscura is one of my favourite places to check for things to do and see in new cities. The website (also a book) recommends the obscure and curious places around the world.
Prague, Czech Rebpublic is a small, walkable city and the farthest Atlas Obscura suggestion is only a 30 minute walk from my hostel. So, while I typically will take off “outliers” from my list, I’ve kept all suggestions on my list and it will just come down to time. A few of the things I’m most excited for in Prague are:
- Hlava Franze Kafky – moving statue of Franz Kafky’s head.
- Municipal House – most of the building is closed unless taking a private tour but I’ll be checking out as much as I can
- Idiom Installation – a book statue (check out the pictures)
- The Dancing House of Prague – a “tipsy office building”
Speculum Alchemiae – hidden lair of an alchemist discovered in a flood
- Dripstone Wall – only open between April and October so I should just be able to make it
- Museum of Torture Instruments – There are two!
There are only 7 suggestions on Atlas Obscura for Bratislava so I’ll check them all out.
