Welcome to Prague

The capital of the Czech Republic, the one-time communist capital of Prague has evolved, and now boasts a reputation as one of Europe’s most in-vogue destinations. Rivaling the beauty of Paris, Prague features a wealth of baroque architecture, Gothic spires, and a maze of quaint cobbled streets and red roofs set beneath a hilltop castle. And while mass tourism has marched in to explore, the capital still holds cultural appeal, including its traditionally brewed beer, renowned Franz Kafka Museum, and cuisine that goes beyond Czech dumplings and goulash. Wind your way through Prague’s cosmopolitan and historic sights to see its world-renowned castle and many bridges, hear its music, and experience the Danube River.
