(Česky: Praha) Prague (Praha) is the cultural epicenter of Eastern Europe, a jewel of history and architecture that was, miraculously, barely touched during WWII. Home to the first university in Eastern Europe, Prague attracts intellectuals as well as bohemians looking to be inspired by this magical city filled with cobblestone streets, gold-tipped churches, and ancient castles.
The capital of the Czech Republic since 1994, Prague draws an impressive number of tourists each year, growing its population from 1.2 million to 4.5 million. And there are plenty of hotels throughout the city to house all of those visitors. From luxurious hotels to adventurous botels (hotels on a boat), travelers of every budget and personality will be able to find the perfect hotel for their Prague holiday.
Prague is broken down into an intricately-numbered district system that changes depending upon who you ask. Still, certain areas are known by all. The main sightseeing neighborhoods are Old Town, the Small Quarter, and New Town.
The heart of Prague’s historic center can be found in Old Town, with sights including the Astronomical Clock, the Gothic Tyn Church looming over Old Town Square, the Estate Theater, and the old Jewish quarter. Across the picturesque Charles bridge is Lesser Town, or Malá Strana, where Kafka’s footsteps can still be quietly heard. New Town is a commercial area with shops in and around Wenceslas Square. The area is also home to the National Museum, relaxing parks, a trendy nightlife scene, Jubilee Synagogue, and panoramic views from Henry Tower.
With all of those Prague sights, the one people come to see the most is the Prague Castle. The biggest castle in the world, Prague Castle dates back to the year 880 and currently covers almost 70,000 square meters. Offering beautiful views of the city, St. Vitus Cathedral, the Castle Picture Gallery, and the hourly changing of the Presidential Guard, it’s easy to spend an entire day at this UNESCO World Heritage Site.
