Why Visit Prague, Czech Republic

The Czech Republic's capital, Prague is often called the City of a Hundred Spires. It has survived the violence and destruction of 20th-century Europe and was almost untouched by World War II. Its bridges, cathedrals and golden-tipped spires are well-preserved and have been reflected in the swan-filled Vltava river for centuries.

The city encompasses over ten major museums, as well as numerous theatres, galleries, cinemas, and other historical exhibits. Moreover, the extensive historic center of Prague has been included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites since 1992.

The following sights simply can't be missed during Prague sightseeing tours: the Astronomical Clock, the Prague (Hradcany) Castle, the Jewish Quarter, Charles Bridge, Church of St. Nicholas, the Prague Old Town, as well as Vysehrad.
