It has been one of Europe's most influential cities for centuries and the capital of the Czech Republic is no less vital today. If you're seeking a wealth of cultural delights in a place where the people are friendly and there's always a festival going on, you've found your perfect holiday destination.
A visit to Prague is an opportunity to see numerous architectural masterpieces, from the great Gothic Powder Tower to the famous Dancing House designed by Milunic and Gehry, and the spectacular St Vitus Cathedral where the country's crown jewels are kept. You can also visit the home of Franz Kafka and his grave. The State Opera and National Theatre are both based in the city and are as active today as they have been for centuries, and the National Gallery houses the country's greatest works of art. You can also dine in Michelin starred restaurants and attend amazing festivals. Prague is a delight, especially in the lead up to Christmas where the main square is filled with traditional, handmade goodies - not to be missed.
