Attractions and activities

The city of a thousand spires

To be precise, there are 550 bell towers and spires – some hiding discretely and others demanding your attention throughout the capital. Churches, cathedrals, convents, monasteries and chapels miraculously escaped the damage inflicted on the city during the Second World War. There is an incredible variety of architectural styles – Romanesque, Gothic, Baroque, Art Nouveau, Cubism… The must-visit religious monument is St Vitus Cathedral, located within the Prague Castle complex and a perfect illustration of Gothic architecture. It is the largest and most important religious building in the country. Two of the many churches worth a visit are St Nicolas in Mala Strana, one of the most beautiful Baroque churches in central Europe, and Our Lady before Tyn, in the Old Town, which symbolises the struggle between catholics and protestants in Bohemia.    

Prague Castle

The castle complex is no less than a walled town within a city, and is the official residence of the President of the Czech Republic. In the past, it was home to the Czech monarchy, to the emperors of the Holy Roman Empire and to the presidents of Czechoslovakia. This fortified castle attracts enormous numbers of tourists every year. 
The Guinness Book of Records has listed it as the largest ancient castle in the world (570 m long by 128 m wide on average).

Characteristic quarters

In Prague, every quarter has a particular atmosphere and its own special charm. This capital of Bohemia is a very welcoming cosmopolitan city which delights in combining different styles. The best way to discover its charms is to wander through the winding backstreets of the Jewish quarter, gaze at Old Town city hall and its astronomical clock, cross Charles Bridge, the oldest bridge in Prague and a gothic marvel, and then perhaps take a cruise on the Vltava river….
