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 Vyšehrad National Cultural Monument. Your inner history buff will appreciate Prague Astronomical Clock and Katedrala Svateho Vita. The adventure continues: explore the historical opulence of Prague Castle, sample some tasty brews at a beer tour and tasting, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Spanish Synagogue, and step off the mainland to explore Shooters Island.
