Prague: The City of a Hundred Spires
This magical city of bridges, cathedrals, gold-tipped towers and church domes has been mirrored in the surface of the Vltava River for more than ten centuries. Prague offers a breathtaking mix of Baroque, Gothic, Renaissance, Art Nouveau, and Cubist architecture like no other European city. It is rich in culture and many world-famous composers, artists, authors, and poets have called Prague home. And the beer? The best in Europe!
Almost undamaged by WWII, Prague's medieval center remains a wonderful mixture of cobbled lanes, walled courtyards, cathedrals, and countless church spires all in the shadow of the majestic 9th-century castle. The city's historical center was named a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1992.
Prague is also modern and vibrant, full of music and art and with a lively and diverse dining scene that will satisfy any traveler's appetite for adventure. The city's maze of cobbled lanes and hidden courtyards is a paradise for travelers who enjoy exploring "off the beaten path." Shopping in Prague is full of discoveries: Bohemian glass, wooden crafts, garnet jewelry, ceramics, and wine from Moravia are just a few of the local treasures. Around one corner, you’ll find a crumbling shop front and a glimpse of a stooped jeweler hard at work restoring an ancient pocket watch. Around the next, a modern design boutique selling a mixture of hip home accessories and Japanese denim.
