Winter in Prague doesn’t just mean chilly weather. It’s prime time for winter sports fun! Hit the ski slopes at places like Monínec, just an hour away from the city, offering affordable skiing and accommodations. And if ice is your thing, Prague’s got plenty of ice rinks that won’t empty your wallet. You can even try your hand at ice hockey at the impressive O2 stadium. 🎿⛸️🏒
Football (or soccer) is a big deal in the Czech Republic. Prague has loads of 5-a-side football pitches, like in Zizkov and Letna, where you can play for as little as 50 CZK per player. And on sunny days, grab a ball, head to a park, and start a game! ⚽
Climb to New Heights
Climbing seems to be a thing here in the Czech Republic, and we get it – it’s awesome! Prague has tons of climbing gyms. Check out the Boulder Bar, near Nádraží Holešovice metro station. It’s open late, and the entry fee won’t break the bank at 120 CZK. Plus, they have a bar for post-climbing relaxation. Cheers to that! 🧗♂️🍻
Ruzyne is a bit farther out but offers a massive climbing wall and hosts big competitions. You can easily get there by taking a train from Masarykovo nádraží to Praha Ruzyně. In the summer, don’t miss Gutovka, Prague’s largest outdoor climbing wall.
When the city gets too busy, lace up those hiking boots and explore Prague’s beautiful parks and trails. Popular spots like Karlštejn (a short train ride away) and Český Ráj (known for its stunning rock formations) are worth the trip. But you don’t have to leave Prague for a great hike. Areas like Petřín and city parks offer fantastic opportunities, and it won’t cost you a dime. Just bundle up in winter! 🏞️🥾
Make a Splash
No coast, no problem! Prague’s Vltava River is perfect for water sports. Try stand-up paddleboarding for 250 CZK an hour, with lessons for 500 CZK. For a more extended adventure, head to Český Krumlov for canoeing and rafting in the summer. You can get there by bus from Prague in about 3 hours. If you’re in the mood for something chill, rent a paddleboat for just 70 CZK and enjoy a leisurely float on the river. 🌊🏄♂️

Prague is a sports wonderland. If squash is your game, check out Squash Arbes Centrum or Pro-6 Sport Centrum. For squash, badminton, and table tennis, hit up Squashpoint, which even offers Pilates and Zumba. It’s all about having fun and staying active! 🏸🏓
