Whether you wish to watch a game or play, ice hockey remains the most famous past-time yet an interesting option for the people in Prague. The most popular place for ice hockey in Prague is O2 Arena Stadium located in HC Slavia. The Czech Professional League and the O2 Extraliga have a great reputation across the world while many players representing their teams get promoted to play on elevated levels to play for teams like NHL in the US or Canada.

Popular Football Teams
The most popular name among the sporting group in Prague is needless to say – Sparta Praha Club. It is the Czech Republic’s best football team. The team specifically plays in the season from September to April, in a stadium called Letna Park. If you are a fan of football and you genuinely want to get the local experience of Prague, you must attend a match played in the Czech Gambrinus Liga.
This league is played from August to May and consists of sixteen clubs altogether. Each club plays thirty games on the weekends. Yet another good team is Slavia Praha, the tickets for which have a cost ranging from 100 CZK to around 400 CZK. The prices can vary depending on the internationally acclaimed match or not. The larger games sell out fast but for the local ones, the tickets can be purchased on the same day. Moreover, CEE Cup Football club is coming back to Prague this year as well.
Hiking can sound like an adventure sport for the ones traveling to Prague. But believe me, it is one of the most celebrated sports in the city. There are countless parks and reserves to be explored in the city, the best one being Divoka Sarka. It is one of the largest expanses on the outer limits of the city whose trails direct you to the cliff faces and hilly forests.
Better be ready with a structured map to monitor the trails. During the weekends in summer, the place transitions into a crowded procession of tourists and local families with dog walkers and strollers. The large park fills in an experience of equilibrium in the mind of visitors.
The city is justifiably too proud of its tennis players to have originated from their land in recent years. The National Tennis Center contests on the island of Stavince just beneath the popular Hlavkuv Bridge stage Grand Prix. Herein, you get to explore a wide selection of clubs and courts dotted around.
The best club as considered by many is the club Cesky Lawn Tennis offering fourteen outdoor and ten indoor courts. These clubs can be booked by the public all day during the weekends and till 3 pm on the weekdays.
Hiring a rowing boat or a pedalo on the river of Vltava offers you a unique view of the city. During the summertime, paddle boats offer thrill and family fun to visitors. The overall cost of these boats varies– paddle boats can be rented at CZK 150 hourly while other boats that are illuminated in the evenings cost around CZK 200 hourly.
