Prague is considered to be one of the jewels of Europe. It is the capital and largest city in the Czech Republic, and has been one of the most important cultural centers on the continent for at least a thousand years. Prague sightseeing reveals hundreds of years of history, often times along the same city block. Some of the most iconic Prague attractions are the Estates Theater, the National Theater and the Charles Bridge. Prague tours are not merely about spotting famous landmarks and seeing beautiful architecture, however. A Prague city tour is more about enjoying the history and wealth of culture the city is so wont to afford visitors and locals alike. There is a good reason why it has served as the home of numerous famous politicians, religious figures and artists, such as Mozart, Kafka and Jaroslav Seifert, recipient of the 1984 Nobel Prize for Literature.
Prague is also known for its legendary nightlife. Zizkov, a neighborhood to the east of the city’s center, is even said to have the most bars per capita in Europe. It’s no wonder that some of the top things to do in Prague are to visit their many pubs and beer gardens in order to enjoy what is considered to be some of the best beer in the world. The Czechs are particularly fond of pilsners, which are lighter and more refreshing than beers from other regions in the world. Prague attractions also include a thriving arts scene, a myriad of unique bistros and restaurants and a revitalization effort in some of the historically industrial parts of the city such as Letná and Holeìovice. While Prague is most certainly a beautiful city to explore throughout the day, one could argue that Prague by night is far more interesting.
There are several day trips from Prague. One of the most popular is Cesky Krumlov, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This small Central European town was awarded such an honor because of how well it has been preserved over the years. Built around a 13th-century castle, the town maintains a rich combination of Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque architecture. Karlovy Vary is another popular day trip from Prague. It is the most famous and frequently visited spa town in the Czech Republic.
