Welcome to Prague

The capital of the Czech Republic, the one-time communist capital of Prague has evolved, and now boasts a reputation as one of Europe’s most in-vogue destinations. Rivaling the beauty of Paris, Prague features a wealth of baroque architecture, Gothic spires, and a maze of quaint cobbled streets and red roofs set beneath a hilltop castle. And while mass tourism has marched in to explore, the capital still holds cultural appeal, including its traditionally brewed beer, renowned Franz Kafka Museum, and cuisine that goes beyond Czech dumplings and goulash. Wind your way through Prague’s cosmopolitan and historic sights to see its world-renowned castle and many bridges, hear its music, and experience the Danube River.

People Also Ask

What is Prague famous for?

Known as the City of a Hundred Spires, Prague is famous for its well-preserved medieval architecture, Gothic spires, and hilltop castle perched above a long river. Prague's maze of cobbled lanes and hidden courtyards invite long days of exploration, and regular refreshment with its famous beer.

How many days do I need in Prague?

Prague is a popular weekend destination and while it is certainly possible to check off all the major attractions in a couple of days, it’s worth aiming for at least four days to get more of a feel for the city without rushing from one place to the next. Some of the best experiences in Prague come from simply strolling around without a plan.

...More
Do they speak English in Prague?

Yes. Although English is not spoken by everyone, as a short-term visitor who spends most of their time in the touristy areas, you will find that most people you interact with (waiters, hotel staff, etc.) speak at least basic English. Czech is a notoriously complex language, but at least try to learn a few words.

...More
What is the best part of Prague?

What you’ll consider the best part of Prague will depend on your interests, but first timers will likely want to head first for fairy tale-like Staré Město (Old Town) in the center of the city. This is where you’ll find such attractions as the medieval Astronomical Clock and the Gothic Church of Our Lady Before Týn.

...More
What is the best month to go to Prague?

April, May, September, and October are the best months to visit Prague. Temperatures in those seasons are mild (although you should pack an umbrella and raincoat), and there are far fewer visitors than in the peak summer months. May visitors can also enjoy the much-loved Czech Beer Festival.

...More
Is Prague expensive?

No. While Prague is not quite the steal it used to be, costs are still much lower here than in many European capitals. Public transportation and eating out are cheap—the beer famously so—and you can save money on admission prices by buying multi-attractions passes and booking combination tours.
