City Information


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.

Jena is a German city famous for its rolling hills and a variety of wild orchids. One of the most iconic landmarks in the city is Stadtkirche Sankt Michael, or the Church of St. Michael. The church's magnificent Gothic architecture includes a tower that may have once seemed tall, but is now dwarfed by the neighboring JenTower skyscraper. The cylindrical JenTower has an observation deck and restaurant on the top floor where you can get the best views of Jena.

Jena has a wealth of quirky museums that are not your average art or history museums. For example, the Optical Museum exhibits a wide range of glasses, microscopes, and cameras from various points in optics history. Planetarium Jena often runs laser astronomy shows, and the Phyletic Museum hosts a small but rich collection of natural history exhibits. Of course, you can always simply stroll in the Botanischer Garten, one of the oldest botanical gardens in Germany.

The central hub of intercity bus transportation in the city is the Jena Paradies Bus Station, right in the city's center. Travel to Jena includes bus service on FlixBus, plus numerous train routes on the Deutsche Bahn network.
