Prague is associated with four characteristics: Golden City, City of a Hundred Towers, Imperial City, City on Nine Hills along the Vltava – Prague is all that and more.

Prague is a place you simply have to see for yourself. Visitors are invariably captivated by the distinctive and very special style of this city, which manages to be romantic and bustling, antique and modern all at the same time.
Whatever you do, a visit to Prague Castle is simply a must: the complex of churches, fortresses, residential and office buildings is surrounded by beautiful gardens which are ideal for a romantic stroll. This is also where you will find the Golden Lane, which conveys a fantastic impression of what medieval life was like in Prague. And talking of gold: at night, the Castle is bathed in soft, golden light.
If you have had your fill of culture, step onto one of the sightseeing boats and enjoy the views of the city from the river. Sail underneath Charles Bridge, past Prague Castle all the way down to the National Theatre – there could be no more pleasant way to pass the time.
