Do you want to enjoy Prague by yourself? Running is a great option as you can see great spots (and many others you wouldn’t find otherwise). Here are some of the best places where to go running in Prague.
- CITY CENTRE
If you want to see some of the greatest sights of the city and to admire architecture along the way, head out to a place called Náplavka. You can actually continue out of the city along the way, great location for biking as well.
PRO TIP #42: Wake up early in the morning and enjoy Prague without people. Tourists usually sleep long and stay for a breakfast at hotel so the city centre is empty. This is a-must! The city gets crowded around 9-ish AM.
- PROKOPSKÉ ÚDOLÍ
Perfect place for a long run, quite hilly but absolutely worth it! Great views of the whole city as a perfect bonus.
- VÍTKOV HILL
Sunset lover? Head out to this spot where you can also enjoy some “Rocky” moment as there’s a lot of stairs.
- OBORA HVĚZDA
Get ready for some jaw-dropping park as that’s exactly what Obora Hvězda is. Very close to the Prague Castle, hidden enough that tourists usually never end up there. But you can and should.
There are some other great places to run but those are our personal favourite. Easiest thing to do – just open map of Prague and wherever you see green space, that’s probably a running-friendly park. You can check out our map to find these places ⇩⇩⇩

Oh, and yes – we’re running the Volkswagen Prague Marathon 2019, you can joins us for the run or come next year or just come on the 5th of May and cheer for us! Hopefully, we’ll see you in the finish 🙂

Sorry for my weak English (google translator;)) and the annoyance with this subject, but I needed your help.
I am Portuguese and in May I will be in Prague, after some research, I found your videos spectacular (I became a fan), but I had a question about Prague Castle.
In 2016 you said that from 5:00 p.m. the Golden Street is free. Do you still have it? Can I wait until 5:00 p.m.?
Many thanks for your attention,
Just run from the city center to PROKOPSKÉ ÚDOLÍ to enjoy the view. Definitivly worth it. Thank you so much for the suggestion guys 👍
