With storied churches and beautiful castles, Prague was once the hidden gem of Europe, and it has now revealed its beauty to the world. Prague’s prized landmark is the majestic Prague Castle, which is the largest castle complex in the world. The castle is an amalgamation of many different architectural styles, making it a very special destination to visit. You might even get to see the president of Czechia as well, since it is his office! If you simply want to stroll around and enjoy the vibe of the city, head for the Old Town Square, which has seen very few changes since its conception in the 12th century. If you are not afraid of a little hiking, head to Petrin Hill, which is one of the largest green areas in the city. The area also houses the Rose Garden and Seminary Garden, featuring more than 2,100 trees.
Prague’s food scene is not as well-known as other famous cities’, but the local dishes such as knedlíky or bramboráky will pleasantly surprise you. La Degustation Boheme Bourgeoise is a Michelin-starred restaurant that offers amazing Czech dishes. For local beers, don’t hesitate to check out U Medvídku.
