It is love at first sight for all when it comes to the “Hundred-spired Prague”. The large urban construction projects implemented in the 19th century have left the inner city intact to a considerable extent. By odd luck, the city almost entirely escaped the ravages of World War II, as well. Thanks to this, Prague’s large city core has preserved its fascinating medieval atmosphere up to this day, and the beautiful Prague Castle, Prazsky Hrad, is towering over the Vltava River in its original splendour. It is not by chance that the entire historical centre of Prague has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Travel Tips and Advice
The Old Town and the Lesser Town are easy to get around on foot, although a fairly steep road leads up to the Castle. The system of line tickets used in Prague’s public transport is quite difficult to comprehend; so travellers are recommended to use daily passes. Passes must be validated before boarding, using ticket punchers installed at all stops. Prague Card offers free access to more than 50 museums of the city for 4 days. In addition to the great Bohemian beer culture, Prague also boasts a very vibrant musical life. One of the finest classical music festivals in Europe, the Prague Spring Festival attracts a huge audience to the city each May. Prague Jazz Festival is staged in a jazz club called “AghaRTA” every autumn.
