"Golden Prague" Prague by Jarin

Prague Travel Guide: 11,888 reviews and 24,834 photos

Visited, my wife, son and I, this city many times, last time it was beginning August 2002 just before the flood. We had very nice weather and enjoyed the stay very much as visited so many interesting places, which we had not seen for years. Many of them are nicely restored. There are many restaurants with possibilities to sit outside. It is pleasure to be there and to enjoy the hospitality of the Czech people.
I lived there as a child for nearly 3 years, but it was under the old regime. Now it is completely different. Hoping when you will visit Prague you will have also so much positive experience as we had.


Parchment reads: In the 9th century prince Borivoj built the Prague Castle on one of the seven hills.
Through the centuries Prague is grown to a city of 500 km2 with more than 1,2 million inhabitants.
