Prague’s staggering historical attractions date back to 870 AD and the building of Prague Castle, a monumental piece of architecture which, 1,000 years later, is still the city’s focal point. The complex within the castle – originally the home of the dynasty of Bohemia – houses palaces, chapels, museums, galleries and vast gardens, most of which is free to visit. Refusing to fade into history, the castle and the famous St. Vitus Cathedral continually undergo reinvention via renovation efforts.
In addition to the castle, the historic centre of Prague also includes the Lesser Quarter, the Old Town and Josefov New Town, all boasting a place on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. Make sure you check out the Old Town Hall’s Astronomical Clock and the Petrin View Tower, a mini replica Tour Eiffel (only 299 steps high) that was originally built for the Jubilee Exhibition in 1891.
Prague is incredibly proud of its beer heritage. Even the most casual beer drinker will have heard of household names Pilsner Urquell, Staropramen and Budweiser Budvar. Most are served on tap in Prague, everywhere from high-end restaurants to underground cellar bars throughout the city.
Traditional Czech food is made to compliment the bold character of local beer; cuisine has to pack a punch to make an impact. Expect to be served beef or pork with potato dumplings (Knedliky) or some form of pickled or grilled sausages to keep you going. And for those not partial to fiery, strong beer, the region is also noted for its white wine – Rieslings from the Czech Republic are highly regarded. Cafés, bars and restaurants line the city, taking up spaces inside church belfries, in cellar vaults, shops and even watermills, making for a unique dining experience.
Prague’s adopted musical hero is Mozart, in whose honour several museums and an annual music festival are thrown. The Viennese composer is said to have had an inspirational relationship with the people of Prague. As well as staging the world premiere of the complex Don Giovanni in the city, he was later commissioned to write the coronation opera La Clemenza de Tito to celebrate Prague’s incoming King of Bohemia, Leopold II, in 1790.
xploring Mozart’s influence on the city is just one inroad to experiencing culture in Prague.
