The Czech Republic’s largest city, and also its capital. The beautiful and picturesque Charles Bridge straddles the river banks, famous for its classic monuments as it is for the breathtaking views it offers of the city. Head to the Old Town Square and use it as a base to wander aimlessly through a maze of cobbled lanes, hidden courtyard gardens, ancient stone churches and quaint pubs and shops.
Visitors enjoy Prague’s unorthodox take on classic art and masterpieces are found all around you. Check out the magnificent Gothic altarpieces in the Convent of St. Agnes, or head to the streets to take in a mixture of architecture through the ages that make the city’s skyline so dramatic. St Vitus Chapel, which was built over a 600 year timespan, is famous for its immense treasures, from the 14th century mosaic of the Last Judgement, to Saint John of Nepomuck’s silver tomb. Cubist abstract art also finds a home in this four-storey palace. The Prague Castle dominates Prague’s left bank, attracting visitors with its historic buildings, museums and cultural treasures behind its fortress-like walls. Prague offers visitors interesting ways to discover its culinary delights, from beer and brewery tours to lunch in world famous beer gardens.
