“Beautiful” is a word often used to describe Prague, the historic capital city of the Czech Republic. Its picturesque squares and streets, and an abundance of red roofed buildings gives the city an almost fairytale quality that perfectly suits its location on the banks of the Vltava River in the north-west of the country. Nicknamed City of a Hundred Spires, Prague’s skyline is graced with a multitude of spires rising from its many beautiful churches, and then there’s the river and its bridges providing such a scenic backdrop for romantic riverside walks. With so much beauty on offer it’s not surprising to hear that Prague is one of Europe’s most visited tourist destinations.
A place for history, romance and even a bit of fun, Prague is filled with magical historic buildings and bridges that give the city a fairytale atmosphere. Castles, palaces, churches and cathedrals fill the city’s streets and squares but there’s always room for great restaurants and cafes, bars and nightlife too.
