About Prague Tourism
Prague has a reputation for being one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, with its charming medieval centre where churches and ancient courtyards are overlooked by a 1,100-year-old castle. The Czech Republic's number one city is packed with traditional cobbled streets and fine examples of medieval architecture, particularly around the Old Town Square, the city's focal point. Although many tourists favour chain hotels in the New Town District (Nove Mesto), others looking for a more authentic experience may like to consider one of the Prague apartments based within the historical Malá Strana area, where the best overlook the Vltava River and the distinctive Karluv Most (Charles Bridge).
Just 20 minutes from Ruzyne Airport (PRG), Prague Castle is undoubtedly the city's most popular attraction and it is allegedly the world's biggest ancient castle. Here visitors will find interests such as the Spanish Hall, the Rudolf Gallery and the Gothic-style St. Vitus Cathedral. With its reputation for fine brewing techniques, beer lovers will also find Prague a true haven.
