Marvel at the “City of a Thousand Spires” from the windows of your Prague hotel room, while you unpack some comfortable shoes. Walking the city’s warren of narrow, twisting cobbled streets is by far the best way to explore its mediaeval treasures, where hidden courtyards and secret passages reveal gems of Baroque architecture on all sides.
Climb the hill to Prague Castle to learn the long and sometimes troubled history of the city and bask in front of marvellous views below, or take to the alluring Vltava River on a summer evening and watch the fairytale city float by. Simply stepping out of the door of your Prague accommodation can be a magical, romantic experience.
Shopping fans are drawn to the department stores surrounding Wenceslas Square, the crystal and glass vendors on Old Town Square and the crafts for sale on famous Charles Bridge. In winter, the famous Christmas Markets fill the hotels around Prague with enthusiastic Christmas shoppers.
After dark, party people head to the clubs, or sip flavoursome Bohemian beers in traditional bars and beer halls. More refined visitors fill the theatres for classical music, dance and opera. And for something out-of-the-ordinary, try the National Marionette Theatre.
