Best Things To Do in Prague

Prague boasts some of the most picturesque architectural landmarks in Europe. Here you'll find the sprawling Prague Castle, the bustling Charles Bridge, the famous Astronomical Clock in the Old Town, and the quirky, Art Nouveau, Frank Gehry-designed Dancing House. Prague is also famous for its abundance of tasty beers, pubs and beer halls. When you're not sipping on a pilsner, make time for cultural events; operas and symphonies attract large crowds and can be very affordable.
