The Cultural Capital
Historic Prague is a walker’s paradise with charming, cobbled streets leading travellers to the city’s top attractions. The main thoroughfare is Gothic, picturesque Charles Bridge, linking the Old Town with Malá Strana across the mighty Vltava River. Impressive landmarks offer a visual treat around every corner, such as Prague Castle, the Prague Astronomical Clock and Saint Vitus Cathedral. Then, there’s the Art Nouveau architecture of Alfons Mucha, colouring the scene with decorative structures, like the Municipal House. Beneath its historical facade though, the city pulsates with alfresco cafes, lively jazz clubs and plenty of places to try renowned brews.
Prague features on culture routes including the European Route of Jewish Heritage and European Mozart Ways.
