The Czech capital is a city reborn since the Velvet Revolution of 1989. As you wander through its many squares, youll 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.
There is a range of accomodation in Prague to suit all budgets from fantastically renovated palaces & buildings that are now city centre boutique hotels, to competitively priced b&b and apartment accommodation towards the outskirts of the city.
