Prague is like an Open Air Museum

Prague brims with monuments and sights. Put on your walking shoes and explore the labyrinth of cobbled alleys in the Old Town. Josefov, the former Jewish neighbourhood, features six synagogues and the most renowned shopping street in the city. Visit Prague Castle, a village in itself, containing museums, palaces, churches and gardens. Sip beer in the Beer garden on Letna Hill and take in the sweeping views of the Vltava River and the City of Hundreds Spires.

The vibrant atmosphere of The Old Town, sparkling Art Nouveau architecture, monotone housing estates in the suburbs, the former Jewish ghetto, Prague is like an open-air museum full of attractions, monuments and highlights.

Whether you are going to picnic in one of the parks, climb the miniature Eiffel tower or cross the city by tram, Prague-Now will take you to famous attractions and places such as Charles Bridge, the Astronomical Clock, but also to a Trabant car on feet and King Wenceslas sitting on an upside down horse dangling from the ceiling.
