PRAGUE: MYSTICAL | GRAND | BEWITCHING
BEFORE YOU GO
The best way to see this compact city is on foot or by public transport. One ticket will allow you to travel between trams, buses and the metro (subway) for a specified amount of time. Taxi drivers have a notorious reputation for overcharging, and as such, should only be used as an airport transfer to the hotel. Trains are a typical way to explore cities outside of Prague.
Lavish hotels with opulent views are conveniently located within walking distance of many of the city’s historical attractions. Stay at some of the finest establishments decorated with a vibrant bohemian flair.
The traditional fare in Prague is typically a delicious combination of pork, dumplings, and cabbage.
On the savory side, sample Nakládaný Hermelín and Utopenci, pickled cheese and sausage, which pair well with beer. For a heartier meal order beef sirloin smothered in gravy, topped with cranberry sauce, a slice of lemon, cream, and served with bread dumplings, also known as Svíčková Na Smetaně.

SEE & DO
The city is rich in medieval monuments, and comprises three separate cities - the Old Town (Stare Město), the Lesser Town (Malá Strana) and the New Town (Nove Město). Prague is one of the only cities that was left undamaged after World War 2, and as such has many well-preserved buildings. A short trip outside of Prague also proves to be fruitful for fans of history, design, architecture and UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
There are excellent spas located in many of the luxury hotels in Prague. The one that stands out is the Beer Spa, where guests soak in a beer filled tub, then lie on a heated bed and top off the experience with a massage. It is also recommended that guests consume the beverage during the soak.
Browse through boutique stores to find natural cosmetics, puppets, bohemian crystal, porcelain wares, garnet jewelry, handmade soaps, beeswax candles, dried flowers, scented oils and more. In late November, check out the brightly lit Christmas markets and during Easter, pick up some intricately hand-painted eggs.
Situated on both banks of the Vltava River, Prague is an enchanting city filled with cobbled lanes, bridges, cathedrals, walled courtyards, and a 9th century castle. Almost undamaged by WWII, Prague's medieval center is on the UNESCO World Heritage List, and is one of Europe’s most important cities for architecture and design. It is also a vibrant city full of energy, music, art, fine dining experiences and freshly brewed beer. Holiday markets turn the city into a festive experience complete with bright lights, carols and tasty treats.
