Things to do in Prague
Catch a break with some surfing on River Elbe
Landlocked as it is, the Czech Republic may not be the destination de rigueur for surfers but that doesn’t mean you can’t catch a wave in the capital. Surf Wave’s (tel: +420 777 952 222; www.surfwave.cz) artificial break on the River Elbe, 30 minutes drive from Prague, is a great way to wipe out an afternoon.
Pour over the very best Czech Republic vineyards
Even the most experienced of wine connoisseurs have yet to uncork the best of the Czech Republic. Here, quality precedes quantity, and with very little being exported, guests should quench their intrigue by visiting the vineyards. Czech Wine Tours (tel: +420 735 610 698; www.czechwinetour.com) offer tours to boutique wineries that include some sightseeing and lunch.
Power through the snow on a fat bike
Whether it's road cycling, mountain biking or just pedalling through parks, Prague is the perfect city to explore on two wheels. Biko Adventures (tel: +420 733 750 990; www.bikoadventures.com) offer rentals and a range of tours to suit all abilities. They even have fat bikes, whose extra-large wheels make it possible to cycle over snow.
Stand up and go sightseeing
Paddleboarding may be a bit of a balancing act, but once you are up, it is one of the most stimulating ways to see the city. Plťka boards (tel: +420 739 080 492; www.pltka.cz) offer lessons and equipment for hire; from there you can take in such sights as Charles Bridge and the penguins at Sovovy mlýny.
Walk on water with some zorbing
Whether you choose to view it from Charles Bridge or take a river cruise, it’s easy to get close to Prague’s charming Vltava River. But easy doesn’t mean fun. Instead, allow Water Zorbing Prague (tel: +420 732 768 488; www.facebook.com/waterzorbingprague) to seal you in an inflatable ball so you can walk on water.
