Straddling the River Vltava, Prague is a city of contrasts, combining historic architecture with artistic youthful Vigour. On a luxury Prague holiday you can stand on the Charles Bridge and gaze up at Prague Castle, shop for mementos in magical Wenceslas Square and prepare to be amazed by the profusion of palaces, bridges and churches.
You'll find that the best views of Prague are those from the top of the 19th century observatory on top of Petrin Hill, which can be reached by funicular railway. There are plenty of children's attractions on the hill, as well as gentle walks and picnic sites.
We recommend you take a guided walking tour around the city and you'll be amazed at the hidden gems your guide will uncover for you in a city that since 1992 has had its historical core covering 866 hectares listed in the UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage site guide. The medieval lanes of the Old Town and the Castle District are a 'must' see and we urge you to take time out of your hectic schedule to visit the riverside parks, lively bars and museums and art galleries.
