A city with a fairytale skyline and cultural folklore to match, Prague boasts a mix of dark gothic architecture and quirky modern art, streets made for exploring and a hearty cuisine that promises to satisfy in all seasons. This multicultural metropolis is a rich tapestry of history and myth with the open mindset of a modern progressive city and a populace that is tolerant and even helpful to the hordes of tourists that descend upon it. Drink beer when thirsty – it’s excellent and in Prague might be cheaper than water – and walk as much as you can; it’s the best way to discover this city which is a labyrinth of hidden gems. Look up; sometimes the view above you is superior to the one at your feet, and when walking can’t get you where you need to go quick enough, use the tram system; it’s excellent and runs 24/7. Grab a few handy travel tips from this Prague travel guide, and let’s get down to the top 10 things to do in Prague!
