    My hometown is the best place to feel the history not only of Czech republic but the whole Europe, and also excellent place to taste czech beer.

    Praha, Prague, Prag. Beautiful city, a lot of history, flowers, art. Cheap and great food, If you are Vegan look for country life restaurant. And for those who loves beer, there it is cheaper than water!

    Where east meets west a blend of two distinctly different flavors that Europe has to offer. I was a teenager last time I was in this amazing city but even after much traveling it is still one of my very favorite places. I hope to return there some day soon to see how it has fared with a major increase in popularity as a tourist destination in the past decade or so.

    Prague was not too badly damaged during World War II so the much of the city retains it's historic character. A sprawling city with many hills makes for lots to see in Prague. The reasonable prices makes it an economic visit as well.

    Prague was the first Eastern Euro city to see lots of touristy Western visitors. Deservedly, perhaps: the castle is gorgeous and there is some amazing culture. I had a blast in Prague going to the Mucha Museum, the opera house, and eating smazeny syr (fried cheese).

    Prague is a beautiful city. The Czech capital has a lot to offer. You can visit the worlds largest castle complex and a beautiful city center! :) there's also a lot going on at night which makes it attractive to everyone who wants to go out and have fun

    In the summer there aren't many better cities to be in. Everyone is outside. The architecture pops. The winding streets give cool respite from the mild summer. The view of the river lazily cutting through the city never gets old. (and this writer lived there for a year)
    Plus its probably half the price of western Europe. Has some of the best beer on the planet, a nightlife that never stops, big hearty meals of meat, and a care free attitude. It really has something for everyone.

    Hilltop castles, 14th-century stone bridges, and ancient cathedrals with spires to the sky—few cities in Europe capture the imagination with such delirious eye candy as Prague. Enjoy this fairy-tale land from the famed Charles Bridge (which couples can have practically to themselves in winter), a boat down the lazy Vltava River, or while plying the medieval cobbled lanes in search of Art Nouveau cafés. Wind down with a candlelit Czech dinner and Budvar beer.

    Don’t Miss: The intimate ambience and opulent baroque décor of the Alchymist Grand Hotel and Spa, a 16th-century palace–turned–hotel in a quiet neighborhood below Prague Castle.

    We had an amazing time exploring Prague. Our favorites were Old Town Square, the view from the Astronomical Clock Tower, Prague Castle, and Charles Bridge. We were there during the Easter festivities, and though it was a little crowded, it wasn't unbearable whatsoever.

    There are some beautiful bits, but Prague to me never rivalled Budapest or Vienna. Historically the centre of Bohemia. You could probably get by with spending 1-2 days here, but the Charles Bridge is the highlight for most people.

    Praha is an amazing city! Where to begin? Probably the beer! The Straha Monastery is an amazing spot to grab beer, cheese, & beer cheese. It also it nearby to the best overlook of the city.

    Prague is everything you would expect from a classic European city, without the inflation! The entire central city also feels as though it is locked in a time capsule. As you get further and further out, I grant that there are chunks of undesirable communist blocks, but these needn't be acknowledged if you are a tourist (when I was there I was a student).

    The Jewish quarters are well worth exploring, particularly for history buffs. If you have an interest in architecture, Prague virtually has a visual timeline of every notable style passed.

    However, if you are a party animal this city will certainly not disappoint. Prague is home to an incredibly wide array of bars and raging night clubs. They also have the cheapest and the best beer in the entire world. I wasn't a beer drinker before I want and I am not a beer drinker since I left, but I most certainly became enthusiastic whilst there.

    One of my favorite memories is taking a picnic up to a park on a hill overlooking the city, that is right by the tram stop "Ujezed" accessible on the 22 tram (aka the tourist tram.) This tram goes around almost all the important tourist stops the city has to offer.

    What do you say about the most beautiful city in the world? The UN has deemed Prague to be a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In all my travels I have never quite experienced anyplace like Prague. And the people?! The nicest people that I have ever had the privilege of meeting!

    An amazing city! Walk by the river or across the Charles Bridge. Shop in the Jewish quarter or check out the clock in Old Town. Still not impressed? Head to Prague Castle or the TV Tower for some seriously impressive views.

    In 2005 when I visited Prague was the "it" city in Europe. I found it earned it's designation. Arty, antique and and fascinating, Prague kept me entertained for 8 days. I found that impressive for a town I could walk across in a few hours.

    Prague is the European capital you've been dreaming of. Loads of historic buildings (Kafka's Cafe being one of my faves), picturesque landscapes (green, rolling hills) and a nightlife that is off the hook. Did I mention the wheat brew garnished with a lemon? You can score one of those tasty bevs at the covered city skatepark on the island in the middle of the Vltava River, if you nudge all those supermodels out of the way at the bar, of course.

    One of the most Beautiful cities I have ever seen! The Old City has wonderful sites as well as an abundance of culture. the Charles Bridge and the Large Clock in the center are easy things to see. What I really loved was the Strahov Library and the Prague Castle. The Strahov Library is simply stunning. It also requires an advance reservation as there are only so many people let in every day. The Jewish Quarter and a visit to the Terezin Concentration Camp provide insight into the cities illustrious but often somber past.

    Though it's a tourist must, Prague is still one of my favorite cities in Europe. Small, quaint and full of history, the capital of Bohemia still has its old-world charm. Prague Castle is a must, and a walk on the Charles Bridge is lovely at night. Be sure to have at least one pint of beer while you're there. Czech beer is world-famous (and cheaper than water in Prague!).

    A vintage drawing on a wall of building in town. Full of character yet it gives a tinge of nostalgic feel.

    “Prague never lets you go… this dear little mother has sharp claws,” one of Prague greatest literary figures, Franz Kafka, once said of his hometown. I agree! Prague is an enrapturing city, one of my favorite in Europe!

    Not only is Prague the beer capital of the world, and Czech Republic’s capital, but also one of Europe’s most popular tourist attractions, since the fall of Communism in the 1990s. Nicknamed the city of 100 spires, its medieval architecture, stunning setting and extremely vibrant city life, attracts influxes of people from all around the world. Men come for the beer; women come for the Bohemia crystals, or Svarowski, if you may; both of them, however, come for its beautiful bridges, romantic side alleys, broad impressive squares and Baroque palaces. Much cheaper European city when compared to London, Paris, Rome etc!

Description

Prague, regarded as one of Europe’s most beautiful cities, straddles the Vltava River in Central Europe and serves as the heart of the Czech Republic’s cultural, economic, and political activities. Nobility, including the Hapsburgs of the Holy Roman Empire, called “The City of a Hundred Spires” home for over 1,000 years, and now Prague functions as the Czech Republic’s capital. Luckily, Prague was spared from the incalculably destructive world wars, leaving its old town and castle district’s medieval architecture and charm untouched. World famous tourist sites include the Prague Castle, overlooking the Vltava and surrounding districts of the city, the Jewish district and St. Vitus’ Cathedral. Unique museum experiences include the Franz Kafka Museum and the Museum of Communism. As one of Europe’s most popular tourist destinations from families to singles, Prague caters to its international guests with a huge variety of hotel accommodations, restaurants and nightlife experiences, ranging from the budget hostels to five-star hotels and restaurants. ... read more
