The capital of the Czech Republic, Prague is a compelling city full of great culture and attractions. There’s plenty to keep you occupied whether you’re looking for a weekend break, longer sightseeing trip, or maybe a stag or hen do.
Impressive Old Town
Prague has a wonderful range of historical sights, and the best place to start is at the UNESCO-listed Old Town. Have your camera at the ready as you wander through a myriad of cobbled streets and gaze up at the medieval architecture. Cross the River Vltava over the iconic Charles Bridge to the Lesser Quarter, but not before you’ve seen the impressive Church of Our Lady before Týn.
You can see many churches including St. Vitus Cathedral, along with incredible Prague Castle. One of the city’s most famous sights, it’s the largest ancient castle anywhere in the world. If this isn’t enough, you can go on a tour and see more wonderful buildings like the Old Royal Palace.
Prague is the perfect place to go if you love visiting musuems and galleries. It has several world-class examples including the National Museum, the Jewish Museum and the National Gallery, which houses the Czech Republic’s largest collection of art. Continue your cultural journey by visiting a concert hall such as the Rudolfinum to see the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra. And don’t forget to sample one of the best things about Prague; the huge selection of fantastic local beers.
