Four Valentine’s Dates
So you’re on holiday in Prague for Valentine’s Day and have absolutely no clue what to do – we’ve got you covered! Although Valentine’s Day isn’t much of a Czech thing, it only takes a glance at the stunning castles, charming cobbled streets and baroque gardens to get in the romantic spirit.
But if you’re looking to amp up the romance even more, here’s the best romantic experiences for you and your loved one. From an intimate art gallery visit, to customized chocolate creations and the best cocktail bars, try pairing any of these dates with flowers from coolflowers to really kick your romantic side into high gear.
Date 1: The Classics
You can’t go wrong with a night at one of Prague’s historical theatres. At 5 PM see the “Best of the Classics” at the stunning Art Nouveau Municipal House, featuring works from Mozart, Bach, Dvořák and other classical greats. Then head over to CAFE ELEKTRIC for a romantic three-course meal including strawberry aperol and chocolate lava cake. From there, visit Vinograf for one of the largest selections of Moravian and Bohemian wines in the city and a cozy end to your evening.
Concert: 2,000 CZK for two.
Dinner: 1,375 CZK for two (plus gratuity).
Wine: By the glass, or as expensive as your pocketbook and imagination will take you.

Then experience the beauty of Prague’s magical Old Town with a horse-drawn carriage ride, followed by a short walk to Chocotopia, where you’ll create your dessert for later – a customized chocolate bar you decorate with your loved one. End the evening with beautiful views of the river and Prague Castle at Marina Ristorante with their special Valentine’s menu.
Carriage Ride: Around 1,200 CZK.
Customized Chocolate: 380 CZK.

Date 3: Get All Jack and Rose With It
Marina is a stationary boat. If you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, like Jack and Rose from Titanic, take to the open, erm…river… Prague River Boats offers a Valentine’s Day Cruise with a gourmet dinner and live music. Before your adventure, go back to the basics with a walk through Malá Strana’s cobblestoned streets to Petřín Hill, where a statue of romantic poet Karel Hynek Mácha resides. Let’s just say there’s a reason couples line up to kiss in the park on May 1, Prague’s unofficial Love Day. End the night with a handcrafted cocktail at one of Prague’s classy mixology bars, like the intimate Parlour or the vibrant Hemingway Bar.
Dinner Cruise: 1,500 CZK (use the code VISITOR for 20% discount).
Cocktail: One of the best things about Prague is that beer isn’t the only thing that’s cheap – most cocktails are around the 250 CZK mark.

Date 4: Ski Trip
If a riverboat isn’t quite adventurous enough for you, go snowboarding, skiing or even ice climbing. A frozen waterfall outside of Prague in the mountain town of Liberec provides the backdrop for your excursion, while a qualified instructor guides you through this three hour climbing course. Or spend your time in Liberec hitting the slopes at the Ještěd ski resort with 6 slopes and plenty of cozy pubs.
