Thirty years ago, Prague was a mystery to travelers in Europe; now, however, it is one of the most popular destinations on the continent, drawing about 4 million visitors each year. Prague offers a compact city center, a fascinating centuries-long history with splendid examples of Romanesque, Gothic, Baroque, Renaissance and Art Nouveau architecture.
Eating out in Prague during the warmer months is an experience wholly apart from the long winters spent sheltering in cosy cellar pubs and restaurants. Dining on the street or on a river terrace adds a lovely bohemian dimension to the city’s increasingly international cuisine, which still remains highly affordable by western European standards.
Prague is considered as the cultural capital of Czech Republic. Among the many significant cultural institutions are the various theatres scattered across the city. The city was the shooting location of many famous Hollywood movies and music videos. Prague has several museums depicting the artworks of many famous artists including the National Gallery which is the biggest of its kind in the country.
