The PRad experiment is aimed to determine proton charge radius from electron-proton elastic scattering. The measurements were performed in the experimental Hall B of Jefferson Lab using a novel non-magnetic spectrometer technique and windowless hydrogen gas flow target. This allowed to measure $ep$ scattering at angles as small as $0.7~^\circ$ to access unprecedentedly low $Q^2$ down to $2\times 10^{-4}$ (GeV/c)$^2$. The overview of the experiment and its results will be presented.
