This 'City of a Hundred Spires' brims with aesthetic and architectural treasures, Baroque here, Gothic there and a splatters of Neoclassical everywhere. Prague is a UNESCO World Heritage Site full of innovation and interest, clean, romantic, relaxed, walkable, and offering plenty of entertainment ranging from kid-tastic puppet shows to spontaneous poetry outpourings to heavy-metal S&M.
The local cuisine is surprisingly sophisticated, Czech beer is world famous and the city is good value - especially for opera and plastic surgery! All in all this is one of the best short-stay tourist destinations in Europe, with something for everyone.
Here are a couple of highly recommended walks around Prague (also known as Praha, Prag and Praga):
The Royal (Way) Walk: Starting at the Art Nouveau glory of Municipal House, this walk - which is used be the old coronation route - passes various notable buildings through the city's heart: from Staromestske Namesti (Old Town Square), across Karluv Most (Charles Bridge) and up to imposing Prague Castle (Prazsky Hrad) and the St Vitus Cathedral. The walk continues along the Vltava river bank and up Petrin Hill for a panoramic view of the Castle and the city.
New Town/Old Town Walk: This takes you through both the city's new and old faces, starting at the National Museum in the New Town's rather dull Wenceslas Square - previously home to Russian tanks, now a popular shopping area - through an open market place and along narrow back streets to Old Town Square, then continues to Josefov, the old Jewish District.
