Prague Travel Guide

by our Czech Republic expert Conrad Freethy
 
Conrad FreethyThe Czech capital is a city reborn since the Velvet Revolution of 1989. As you wander through its many squares, you’ll find Gothic and Baroque façades sitting shoulder to shoulder, shops nestling under Romanesque arches and stately Renaissance palaces where the changing of the guard is still a daily ritual. High over the city tower the spires of St. Vitus Cathedral, part a sprawling Castle Quarter that hides a maze of medieval cobbles, pastel coloured cottages and museums that cater for every interest. Against this old world canvas beats the pulse of a modern city, alive with cubist art, street performers, a lavish choice of café bars, Bohemian restaurants and vibrant, up-all-night Jazz venues.
