A prosperous and bustling city, Prague now attracts more tourists than ever. Its picturesque downtown veils a dark legacy and a resilient past. In its 1,100 years history, Prague has withstood numerous overthrows, invasions, fires and floods. It’s this reputation for survival and perseverance that has made the Czech capital so fascinating. Its churches, narrow streets, daunting hilltop castle and statue-lined bridges create the scene of an urban fairy tale. Prague was once a hidden gem, overshadowed by its neighbors to the west but the city couldn’t keep its marvels a secret for too long. Now, it’s enticing travelers wanting an awe-inspiring experience at an affordable price. You will find top attractions including the famous Charles Bridge and the historic Prague Castle offering entry free of charge and many hotels offering rooms at a fraction of the cost of other major European cities. Prices have been on the rise so if you want to make a visit before the city catches up with the rest of the much visited European cities, you’d better hurry up.
