About this destination

Prague is the 'Jewel in the Crown' of Central Europe and tourism has played an important role in its economic development in recent years.

Prague's epic history has produced a city full of beauty, of stunning Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque era buildings, and of majestic squares.

The city centre is compact and the finest areas are mostly pedestrianised, so Prague is best explored on foot; from Wenceslas Square on one side of the city to Prague Castle on the other is just a 30-minute stroll (walking via the Old Town, across the river and through the Lesser Town).

The first thing to do in Prague is simply to wander through the streets and magnificent squares, to revel in the atmosphere and to admire the stunning architecture all around.

A sightseeing tour led by a local guide can provide a good introduction to the city, as they will be able to explain the history and significance of the Prague sights and tourist attractions. But equally, allow time in your schedule to do your own exploring.

On your travels you will soon come across the Vltava River, which runs through the heart of the city. Walk over Charles Bridge and along the banks of the river to enjoy wide panoramic views across the water.

A river cruise is the most relaxing way to take in the riverside attractions. And there are lunch, afternoon and evening dinner cruises to choose from.

You can also admire the river scene from above by taking a trip up to Prague Castle or a ride on the Petrin Funicular to the top of Petrin Hill.

With regards to entertainment, opera, ballet and classical concerts are a true highlight. Prague is a city of music, with performances to enjoy all year round in its grand opera houses, magnificent concert halls, ancient churches and other historic buildings.

For a typically Czech experience, black light theatre is a unique feature of the city. The shows are fast moving and highly visual, so appeal to all ages and nationalities.

Turning to food, the city's restaurants enjoy a reputation for serving good, often excellent cuisine. Pub style restaurants offer hearty food and fast flowing cheap drinks, while at the top end visitors can experience fine dining in beautiful settings, such as by the river or with a view over the city.

For refreshments at any time of the day, the world famous Czech beer is deeply embedded in the national physique, and is enthusiastically consumed in pubs and beer halls everywhere; the Czechs are the largest consumers of beer per capita in the world!

On sunny days the action moves outside. At one of the many bars and cafés, take a seat on the terrace or in the beer garden, order a cool beer or chilled glass of Moravian wine, and watch the world go by. You will find the time just slips away!

For a non-alcoholic treat, join the locals at one of Prague's elegant traditional cafés, where a coffee and cake or a deluxe hot chocolate is the order of the day.

Prague has its fair share of stores selling the latest international brands, and the largest shopping mall in the city centre is Palladium Shopping Centre.

In terms of locally produced goods, aside from Škoda cars the most well-known product is Bohemia Crystal. The finest Czech glassware is sold in a number of shops in Prague. Alternatively, visitors can take a tour to a glass factory, such as to Moser Glass.
