Prague, the stunning capital city of the Czech Republic, has become a gem of European tourism. The modern city still retains its medieval city center, complete with cobblestone streets and twisting, narrow alleyways where you’ll find a mix of hip and traditional bars and pubs.
One of the city’s most famous landmarks is Prague Castle and Hradcany; originally constructed in the 9th century, it’s the world’s largest ancient castle. Prague’s world-renowned arts scene features a wealth of fine museums including the magnificent National Museum. And don’t forget to check out Prague’s lively music scene; it won’t be hard to find—jazz clubs and year-round festivals are plentiful.
