Travel to Prague
Prague is the capital of Czech Republic. The largest city in its country, it boasts of a long history, which is linked intrinsically to the history of Europe. The city has brilliant architecture, visible almost everywhere – from beautiful bridges to stunning buildings.
Prague has been nicknamed the "city of a thousand spires." As you glance over its 1,100-year-old skyline you'll be rewarded with countless splendid views of lovely domed churches and soaring old towers that combine to make Prague one of Europe's architectural gems. Everywhere you look, fine examples of Gothic, Baroque, Renaissance, and Art Nouveau styles dot the city, providing a dramatic contrast to the sturdy ancient Prague Castle. Possessing one of the best-preserved historic city centers in Europe, Prague's narrow laneways open up onto spectacular squares, each home to fine old homes and historical buildings just waiting to be explored.
It goes without saying that the city’s charms are no longer a secret. There was a time when Prague’s impeccably preserved Old City seemed to emerge onto travellers’ maps out of nowhere; its medieval lanes and squares untouched by extensive wartime bombing.
These days it’s become a key stop-off on the continental tour, but despite the summer throng it remains a very special place. If you’re canny enough to visit over winter, when its snow-crusted roofs and icicle-laden churches add to the atmosphere, you’ll find far fewer visitors.
