Prague is comparable to Paris in terms of beauty, and its fascinating history goes back at least a thousand years. There’s a whole plethora of things to see and do, and some wonderful districts to explore, plus (importantly for many), the beer is said to be the best in the world!

The ‘Velvet Revolution’ of 1989 that served to free the Czechs from communist rule gave to the wider European community a very exceptional

city- comparable to the wonders of Rome, London, Madrid and Amsterdam in terms of culture and history. It attracts thousands of visitors from around the world, and can get very busy during the summer months. However, no matter how crowded it gets, the breath-taking sights of this very special location are never spoiled.

Prague is a compelling mixture of the weird and the wonderful, with iconic and often ironic twists adding interest to every street and building.

Quirky it truly is, although that word does not do this city justice, as there is so much more to it than that.

The Stare Mesto - or ‘Old Town’ - is the beating heart of the medieval part of the city. At the centre is what is probably one of the most awe inspiring town squares in all Europe - Staromestske Namest*. Here you will be observng some of Prague’s most famous sights, including the tower of the old town hall, the fantastic Astronomical Clock, the Jewish Museum and the Municipal House. The tangle of cobbled alleys and streets just cry out to be discovered, and wandering around this part of town is the perfect way to get a feel for the ‘real’ Prague.

Prague is packed full of secret courtyards and hidden lanes and is therefore best explored on foot. A short stroll away from the Old Town Square you will come across numerous ancient churches, surprising gardens, sweet cafes and traditional bars with barely a tourist in sight. One of the greatest things about this city is its huge potential for exploration

- and you never know what you may be lucky enough to stumble across.

A main tourist hotspot is the beautiful, fairy-tale Prague Castle. Perched atop a hill looking over the Vltava River, the castle is surrounded by elegantly designed residential areas.

Zizkov is one of the most lively, buzzing districts in the city, packed with cool bars and restaurant, perfect for a night out. And, while the art galleries may not have the same draw as the Louvre in Paris, there is still much to admire within the city’s art spaces.
