About Prague

Prague is the little Paris of Central Europe. And the beer? The best in Europe...

Situated at the centre of Europe, Prague lies on the banks of the River Vltava. The city is a maze of cobbled lanes and hidden courtyards. It’s a paradise for the backpacker and city wanderer. Just a few blocks away from the Old Town Square you can stumble across ancient chapels, unexpected gardens, cute cafes and old-fashioned bars with hardly a tourist in sight.

One of the great joys of the city is its potential to find something new around every corner. It was never ruined by war, and the city’s long history is ingrained in the local culture here. It’s actually been Bohemia’s Castle District Capital for hundreds of years.

One of the best things to see is St. Vitus Cathedral, which peers over the city on top of a hill inside Prague Castle. Other Gothic churches line Prague’s streets and you can watch the show played by the medieval Astronomical Clock, every hour. You can reach there by crossing over Charles Bridge. Completed in 1402, the bridge is lined with statues of Catholic saints, and it also has great views over the city.

One of the best things to do in Prague is party. The city is home to the biggest nightclub in central Europe. ‘Karlovy Lazne’ has five levels and it promises to give you a night to remember. If the clubbing scene isn’t your thing, then why not dine at a medieval dinner show – it’ll be a night to remember.

Top 3 Things To Visit In Prague

Beer Geek

One of the most successful of a new generation of multi-tap pubs in Prague to offer the best beers from local Czech producers as well as brewers from around the world. They have 32 taps in all, and regularly rotate in obscure and hard-to-find labels. The 'geek' part of the name extends to the cool, lab-like presentation of the pub.

Wenceslas Square

More a broad boulevard than a typical city square, Wenceslas Square has witnessed a great deal of Czech history – a giant Mass was held here during the revolutionary upheavals of 1848; in 1918 the creation of the new Czechoslovak Republic was celebrated here; and it was here in 1989 that the fall of communism was announced. Originally a medieval horse market, the square was named after Bohemia's patron saint during the nationalist revival of the mid-19th century.

Cross Club

An industrial club in every sense of the word: the setting in an industrial zone; the thumping music (both DJs and live acts); and the interior, an absolute must-see jumble of gadgets, shafts, cranks and pipes, many of which move and pulsate with light to the music. The program includes occasional live music, theater performances and art happenings.
