Things to do on rainy days in Prague

Guidilo - rainy days in Prague
Days when it is raining all day long or very cold outside can sometimes seem unexciting, making you feel depressed. You cannot change the weather; however you can find activities to do that will help dispel the gloominess. Presented below are great things to do and interesting places to visit on a rainy day.

Educate yourself

Try out a new activity
There are so many new and exciting activities out there that we could all try. Why? Because it's fun! It's exciting! What about a hula hoop dancing? Or pole dance? Find something you will love and enjoy...'

Take a quiz
Test your knowledge and have fun every Monday at 8 PM at Czech Inn's BASEMENT bar with their night quiz. Great beer and good company guaranteed!

Explore a library
We love our libraries! They have story times, contain a wide range of interesting books, author talks, and art exhibits. The most popular is definitely Klementinum and Strahov Library but Municipal Library or Academy Of Sciences Library are worth a visit as well!

Get fit
Many of Prague's larger hotels have well equipped gyms you can use even if you're not staying there. You can also visit the largest covered aquapark in the Central Europe or just go for a walk (or a running workout) outside in the rain if there's no lightning and the wind isn't too bad.

Escape a room
Whether you call them "escape games", "exit games", "puzzle escape rooms" or "escape the room" games, you can find different game themes all across Prague. So, gather up a group of friends or family and see if you can work together to solve puzzles, find clues, and ultimately escape one of these rooms.

Whatever it is you choose to do, try to do it well. Do not just brood around the hotel room and wish that the weather is nicer. Make the most of this time by spending it doing something special.
