Prague: the Golden City with a Hundred Spires

Prague is love at first sight. The city is enchanting, full of splendour and grace. Prague is addictive. The city is a crash course in history and architecture from Renaissance, Baroque and Art Nouveau to Cubist, Modernist and Social Realism. It is also the city of Mozart, Smetana and Kafka. Stare Mesto, the Old City, is the maze of winding streets, lanes and alleys. Never touched by war, Prague has retained its medieval layout. 

After the Velvet Revolution of 1989, the city underwent a metamorphosis and is now a prime tourist destination. The Czech Republic joined the European Union in 2004, embraced European ideals but not the Euro.

Prague is a compact city and most sights are within walking. Walk uphill to Prague Castle, stroll through the Golden Street. Weave your way through the crowd on Charles Bridge and inspect the souvenir stands. Visit palaces, churches and museums. Climb one of the many towers for the best view of the city. Get lost in the maze of medieval streets and alleys in Stare Mesto, the Old City. Sip Czech beer in one of the outdoor cafés in Old Town Square before watching the spectacles of the Astronomical Clock. Wander through Josefov, the Jewish district. Stock up on designer labels in Parizska Street and quench your thirst in a pivnice, beer garden.

Prague-Now offers insight information on sights, museums and cultural events. Prague-Now helps you discover hidden beer gardens, the best beer, the best shops and the most beautiful Art Nouveau details.
