Prague’s beauty and historical importance easily rival Paris. Czechs recognise this city as the cradle of their culture, and it has a special place in the national identity. Whether you spend your days admiring Prague’s many spires, watching the intricate astronomical clock ring in the hour, or sampling local delicacies, the options in Prague are endless. A natural starting place for any visit to Prague is the Old Town. Most of Prague’s main attractions are found here and you could easily spend your whole trip. Old Town Square has served as the marketplace and heart of the city for over 1000 years. Sip coffee in the sunshine while admiring the square’s exquisite buildings or check out the Municipal House, one of Prague’s best examples of Art Nouveau architecture. A highlight of any city break is wandering the maze of cobbled lanes that radiate out from the Old Town Square. Kids of all ages will enjoy discovering hidden courtyards, ancient chapels, and secret gardens. Along the way, stop at one of the many quaint cafes or traditional bars serving locally brewed Pilsner Urquell. Your journey will take you a world away and show you true Prague culture.
