Prague Attractions

Located along the banks of the Vltava river, Prague is the largest city in the Czech Republic and one of Earth's most historically significant metropolises. If you like soaking up medieval ambiance by exploring old castes and perusing, you will find no shortage of things to do.

As one of Europe's cultural centers, Prague activities include numerous cultural events. You can attend the World Roma Festival, the Prague Autumn International Music Festival, the Prague Writers' Festival, or a number of other culturally-based celebrations. Contacting our office here at Expedia while you are still in the planning stages of your trip is an excellent way to get inside information on the best Prague excursions. Grab a map of the city so you can navigate your way around the many attractions in Prague.

Because the Mother of Cities was spared much of the destruction that occurred in other parts of Europe during the past two world wars, tourist attractions include buildings from every architectural style known to western civilization. Gothic cathedrals mingle with baroque gardens to create a magical atmosphere found nowhere else in the world. Must see attractions in Prague include the Prague Castle, the Old Town Square, the Charles Bridge with its baroque statuary guiding you as you walk across and the astronomical clock that is located next to the Tyn Church.

Although steeped in the history of western civilization, Prague is also an extremely modern city, with some of the world's top restaurants, vibrant night spots, and tons of local color and charm. You'll want to stay forever once you see it, and it is one of the places you will dream about for the rest of your life.
