Prague lures millions of tourists each year with its World Heritage-listed medieval city center--a labyrinth of narrow lanes, bridges, cathedrals, and palaces overlooked by a thousand-year-old castle.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Lesser Town and Shooters Island. Your inner history buff will appreciate Prague Castle and Vyšehrad National Cultural Monument. And it doesn't end there: take in the spiritual surroundings of Katedrala Svateho Vita, take some stellar pictures from Prague Astronomical Clock, indulge your taste buds at Food & Drink, and take in the views from Charles Bridge.

You might consider the city of Budapest, divided by the Danube River into two distinctive cities--Buda and Pest--to be essentially one large World Heritage Site.
Head to Andrassy Avenue and Herend Porcelain - Hadik Shopfor some retail therapy. Museum-lovers will get to explore House of Terror Museum and Hungarian National Gallery (Magyar Nemzeti Galeria). There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Halaszbastya, explore the historical opulence of Buda Castle, take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Stephen's Basilica (Szent Istvan Bazilika), and get engrossed in the history at Hospital in the Rock.
