You can also find all of these and more on our map.
1. Cruise the Devil’s Channel
What’s a good date without a little bit of sin? Get spicy. We’re kidding, Devil’s Channel is only a name. Known as the Certovka to the locals, this channel dips and curves between Lesser Town from Kampa Island. You’ll be seeing Prague in the most romantic of ways! Your date will begin along the Vltava River, before taking off the beaten path down the Devil’s Channel. Relax on the boat as you make your way across Prague’s waters.
The Vltava River Cruise is another good pick, although it’s even more popular. The Devil’s Channel river cruise only takes place during the day, so if you want an evening date go for the Vltava instead.
2. Relax in the Beer Spa
Going to the spa is a classic date idea, especially for couples who just want to spend some relaxing time together. We could recommend you a regular spa, but nothing says Prague more than beer! Sip and chill in the beer-infused tub. There’s even beer hops in the water to give you that moisturizing effect. For beer loving couples, this is one date you won’t ever forget.
3. Rent a motor boat
Sure, you could kayak or paddle boat your way down the Vltava River. And that would be cute. Or you could pilot your own boat, go at your own pace, and bring snacks along for the perfect river date. Wave bon voyage to the tourist river cruises as you take your partner on a romantic, private boat ride. You and your date can take turns piloting the boat or simply find a nice spot to sit and relax to enjoy a picnic out on the waters. In the summer, you can even take a dip into the river and swim together.
4. Slide around Prosek Bobsleigh Track
Are you looking for a more adventurous date idea? Is your partner a bit of a thrill-seeker? Well, after sliding into their DMs, why not slide down the bobsleigh track together in Prague? The track is 1 kilometre long with some loops and dips along the way to stay on the edge of your seat. Hold hands as you speed down the track at max speed or go for a slow romantic journey at sunset. Inside the bobsleigh track centre, you’ll find a nice restaurant too making this date idea a convenient choice.
5. Escape together in Questerland
What better bonding experience is there than escape games? Enter Questerland as a couple and team up with your partner to solve the puzzles and escape. One of the top picks here has to be the Harry Potter room, but there’s plenty more to choose from whatever you guys are into. To keep things chill, we recommend picking an easy level escape room unless you’re a super experienced escape game couple. Once you’ve escaped, head on over to the nearby Riegrovy Beer gardens to relax and sip a beer together. An escape game might not be the usual romantic choice, but you two will definitely grow closer.
6. Picnic at Vyšehrad Park
Located above the Vltava River, Vyšehrad Park is one of the best places to visit for views of Prague Castle. Go as a couple, grab a cup of coffee, and talk together to the heart of the park. There’s plenty of room here to have a cozy picnic. But don’t get too distracted by your date and make sure you take some time to wander the park! Vyšehrad has one of the prettiest churches in the city, plus the historic Leopold’s Gate.
Stick around to watch the sunset over the castle - the view is stunning. Sunset at Vyšehrad is one of the most romantic things to do in Prague for couples. Even if you can’t make it for golden hour, the park is a great place for a lowkey romantic date in the city any time of day!
7. Giggle at the Sex Machine Museum
Yes, it’s exactly what it sounds like. The Sex Machine Museum might not be the best pick for shy couples, but if you want a bit of a laugh this Valentine’s Day then this might just be for you. Obviously, no kids allowed! This place is the biggest museum of its kind with over 350 machines on display. The museum is right in the centre of Prague - you really can’t miss it.
8. Try a segway experience
Imagine you and your boo strolling through the city streets of Prague… So romantic! But here’s the thing. A stroll through Prague might be a classy date idea, but throwing in a segway will make your date even more memorable. We recommend going with Segway Experience Prague to get off the beaten path on a guided tour of the Czech capital. You get to see tons of pretty points along the way. The segway tour lasts 90 or 180 minutes, so you’ve got plenty of time after for a romantic stroll too.
9. Try 2-player VR games
Couples who game together stay together. Look, romance is subjective. Team up and fight zombies or compete in all kinds of VR games at VR Play Park Prague. You should really prebook online as slots fill up fast! The VR Play Park is the perfect pick for a first date. Break the tension, win some battles, and see how you work as a team.
10. See the stars at Prague Planetarium
Are those stars in your eyes? It’s not the romantic vibes, those are literal stars. Visit one of the biggest planetariums in the world for a date across the galaxy. Relax beneath the stars and planets at this romantic spot in Prague. The sky is projected above, so you can even have this date on a rainy day and cozy up together. Still have time to spare? Prague’s Planetarium is located inside one of the biggest parks in the city. Take your date for a tram ride at the beautiful Stromovka Park.
11. Have dinner at The Backyard Kotva
It’s so hard to decide where to eat, ok? You don’t want to be stuck in the car asking each other where you want to go. Or, God forbid, you show up and your date doesn’t like the food. Avoid all of that bother on a romantic date by entering this courtyard of foodie containers. There’s tons of food trucks and stalls here to choose from. For couples into food, The Backyard Kotva is a must. Manifesto Market is similar and has even more options, but The Backyard Kotva is in a super easy to reach central location in the city making it one of the best meetup points for a date.
12. Explore the Troja Chateau
Love is in the air. You can spend a whole day full of romance at The Troja Chateau. It’s right next to the botanical gardens, a vineyard, and Prague Zoo. If the location wasn’t enough to sell you, this next bit will be. Dropped right out of a fairytale, The Troja Chateau is one of the most beautiful places in Prague. Just a short drive from its urban centre, you’ll find some nice art exhibits on the inside too. Once you’re done wandering the beautiful gardens, look behind the chateau to find its vineyard and sip some wine. This is definitely at the top of our list as one of the most romantic places in Prague.
13. Play Glow in the Dark Mini Golf
Mini golf is cute. Glow in the dark mini golf makes you see this game (and your date) in a whole new light. Good to do on a rainy day or for a fun casual date! There’s 18 holes to complete, so the mini golf alone will give you plenty to do. Travel as a couple through a land of neon lights. Completed the mini golf course? Your date isn’t done yet! Spend the rest of your time together playing ping pong, arcade games, XXL Jenga, and much more.
14. Stoll the botanical gardens
Prague’s botanical gardens (“Botanická zahrada Praha”) has some of the prettiest sights in the city. Best as a summer or spring date, bring along your Valentine for a romantic stroll through Mother Nature’s best. The outdoor gardens are our favourites here, especially the Japanese Meditation Garden. Quiet and calm, the botanical gardens are perfect for a cute and intimate date. Feeling weak at the knees? Take a seat next door at St Clara Vineyard and have a glass of rose wine as you admire the beautiful views of the garden and your date. If you’re looking for a romantic spot in Prague, you’ve found one.
15. Hike Divoká Šárka
Fall in love on a hiking trail. When it comes to things to do as a couple, you really can’t beat a good hike. Divoká Šárka is a hilly area just outside of Prague’s busy centre. Escape to the natural landscapes of the hills together and conquer the trails as a couple. Beautiful in every season, this place has some of the coolest rock formations and hills around Prague. You two will love the views! For active couples, Divoká Šárka is our top date recommendation!
