Prague View breaks >>
Utterly enchanting at first acquaintance, Prague reveals the complexities of its character only to those who take the time to savour it fully. To appreciate today's Prague, you need to experience its lively nightlife and state-of-the-art shopping complexes, just as much as its comparable artistic and architectural heritage.
Svateho VitaPrague's greatest landmark, the Gothic Cathedral of St. Vitus, is at the spiritual heart of Czech Roman Catholicism and is an essential destination for every visitor to the city. At 600 years old, it is considered Prague's key symbol.
Prague CastlePrague Castle, dominating the city from its rocky spur, has been the residence of kings and emperors for more than 1,000 years. Clustered within its walls are the great Cathedral of St. Vitus and the Romanesque Basilica of St. George.
Loreta PalaceThe Loreta is an irresistable example of baroque extravagance, inside and out. The shrine and its famous carillon attracts crowds of tourists, just as it once drew throngs of pilgrims, and is one of Prague's most popular sights.
St. Nicholas' ChurchOne of central Europe's most magnificent baroque churches, the ornate interior of St. Nicholas' is a masterpiece of baroque theatricality. The monumental bulk of the great Church of St. Nicholas rises over the beautiful Mala Strana Square.
BertramkaThis leafy villa is where Mozart put the finishing touches to his opera Don Giovanni. In the 18th century the countryside was dotted with these charming rural retreats and vintage dwellings, now shrines to Mozart's memory. (not shown).
Wenceslas SquareWenceslas square is the city's most famous thoroughfare and meeting place. Despite its name, it is more of a boulevard than a square. Crowds fill the square all day and for much of the night, swarming in and out of shops, arcades and hotels.
