Many people see the capital of the Czech Republic as the most beautiful city in the world. The medieval old town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Buildings such as the iconic City Hall and the Astronomical Clock take you back to another age.
Let’s start with the huge Prague Castle, built in the 9th century and full of other spectacular buildings such as St. Vitus Cathedral or the Golden Lane. Many of the districts in this beautiful city are full of history. The most bohemian is Mala Strana, while the Jewish quarter is home to a cemetery and six synagogues, amongst which the Spanish Synagogue is the most beautiful. The historic centre is full of handicraft shops where you can buy the beautiful typical wooden puppets or Bohemian glassware. Clementinum is a large historic complex of buildings including a beautiful, well-preserved Baroque library that is more than 300 years old.
