1 hour and 25 minutes
Most cities claim to have several monuments and landmarks worth visiting. Prague can justifiably say that it is one big monument itself! Baroque churches, palaces and castles, historic squares, streets and bridges – every building is a feast for the cultural eye! UNESCO agrees, as Prague's central district has been named a world heritage site. Prague is a cultural city par excellence and an ideal destination for a surprising and exciting weekend city trip.
Places to visit in Prague
Prague is like walking in a fairy tale. The feeling of standing in a city invented by storytellers is particularly evident on Staroměstské náměstí Square. Charles Bridge is also enchanting, especially when the lights go on at dusk. The bridge has a history of more than 600 years and the many statues that adorn it make it truly unique. It is said that if you make a wish at the copper cross halfway across the bridge, that wish will be fulfilled. When it's time to catch your breath after a busy day in Prague, relax in the architecturally landscaped palatial gardens in the Malá Strana district. A visit to Prague wouldn't be complete without visiting Prague Castle. Prague Castle is actually a ‘city within a city’, with the picturesque ‘Golden Lane’ as the highlight. The street was famous for the goldsmiths that lived there during the seventeenth century.
Prague is sometimes called ‘The Golden City’ or ‘The City of One Hundred Towers’. Once a Celtic settlement, today Prague is the modern, multicultural capital of the Czech Republic. The Vltava River flows through the centre and the city is joined together by several bridges, the Charles Bridge being the most famous. This bridge is only accessible to walkers and offers a beautiful view of Prague. Flanked by 30 statues of saints, strolling across the bridge is an event in itself. After a day of soaking up all the culture Prague has to offer, it's time to sit down and relax in one of the many cosy cafés or restaurants. Czech cuisine is hearty, with plenty of meat, doughs and potatoes. And the meal should ideally be washed down with a glass of beer - after all, the Czechs invented lager. Prague is definitely a treat for the eyes, and for the stomach.
