Welcome to Prague! Depending on your arrival time, stroll through the historical center and enjoy all that makes this one of Europe’s most beautiful locales. We provide a detailed City Guide, filled with suggestions on where to dine. Your hotel options include a historic property near Charles Bridge, or a luxurious hotel with contemporary décor. Next day,
we provide a local expert guide who will meet you at your hotel to take you on a walking tour of the city. As popular as it is, no visit to Prague should end without a visit to its castle, the largest ancient castle in the world. Your visit will start with it today. The Pražský hrad presides over the city like a watchman, looming over its subjects and limitless visitors. It owes its eclectic style to various rulers having had an architectural stab at it over the centuries since the 9th Century Prince Bořivoj laid its first foundations. As such it’s a maze of multi-era buildings and palaces, gardens, courtyards, towers and churches. If you ever find the will to leave, enjoy one of the many atmospheric cafes in the historical center.
