Once home to the Bohemian Dynasty, Prague’s unique vibe blends ancient history, modern art, music, and of course beer to create a breath-taking city experience. Formerly part of the Soviet Eastern Bloc, Prague’s place in European history was cemented with the break-up of Czechoslovakia as recently as 1993, and its turbulent history is echoed in its beauty. However, more than 1,000 years after it was built, the monumental Prague Castle is still the city’s focal point. Within it you’ll uncover palaces, chapels, museums and vast gardens, most of which are free to visit. Elsewhere, the city’s Old Town boasts a place on UNESCO’s World Heritage List with its endless cobbled streets and cosy cafes drawing you in.
The words Prague and nightlife are synonymous. It’s the stag do capital of Europe for one, but if that isn’t quite your thing then there are plenty of places to cater for the less rambunctious traveller as well. Bars and restaurants line the city, squeezing inside church belfries, cellar vaults and even watermills. Prague is incredibly proud of its beer heritage and traditional Czech food is made to compliment its bold character. For cracking local knedliky (dumplings) head to any one of the numerous little eateries in Wenceslas Square in the New Town. And for serious clubbing, or just a nightcap and a boogie, Double Trouble is a lively cellar bar loved by locals and party groups alike.
Shopping in Prague is a one-off. There’s something for everyone with a mixture of international department stores and quaint little art shops offering local produce. The main shopping areas centre around Wenceslas and Republic Squares, where you will find the big malls Palladium and Quadro. The post-revolution Cerna Ruze (Black Rose) is full of independent shops and businesses, where you can pick up a piece of the famous Czech glass or crystal. Or just jump on the Metro and see what you can find on your journey.
Mozart fell in love with Prague and there are several museums and an annual festival dedicated to him. The most famous museum is in the village of Bertramka just outside Prague, where the composer stayed during his lengthy visits. Also a must is a visit to the Old Royal Palace, one of the original buildings within the 9th century castle grounds, and the Vladislav Hall which hosted Bohemian royal state occasions including coronations. Prague is a history buff’s dream, with guided walking tours taking in the Jewish Quarter, the Old Town Hall and Stromovka Park. And no visit would be complete without raising a glass at one of the many beer halls – try the legendary U Medvidku at Na Perštýně 345/7.
