Prague is Eastern Europe’s most visited city, with good reason: few destinations offer such a concentrated dose of architectural gems, historical fascination and after-hours fun.
Loiter under the lanterns of Charles Bridge, Prague’s most famous and romantic site; early morning attracts fewer tourists. Passing through an imposing tower, veer off the main tourist route and take a long detour via the modern-meets-art-nouveau Wenceslas Square, once the scene of anti-Communist demonstrations, past the lovely gothic Powder Tower to end up at the fairy-tale Old Town Square.
Start at Stavovské Theatre, where Mozart’s Don Giovanni was first performed; find out more about the maestro’s Prague adventures at the Mozart Museum. More recent artistic endeavor awaits at the Art Nouveau Mucha Museum.
Start at the top today! Treat yourself to an uphill tram to the amazing Prague Castle. The complex includes the Gothic St. Vitus Cathedral, the Old Royal Palace, and Picture Gallery.
