"Beautiful Prague" Prague by clairegeordio

Prague Travel Guide: 11,872 reviews and 24,810 photos

Since the Middle Ages, Prague has been famous as one of the most beautiful cities in the world. There are many historical monuments to see in Prague, dominated by the Prague castle.

I went to Prague with my Czech friend and her husband on Easter Sunday. This was a lovely time to visit as Easter has a lot of importance attached to it over there, so the shops were all decorated with flowers and painted eggs and the old town square was alive with colour: little huts selling souvenirs, coloured paper hanging from the trees. We were actually staying with my friend's family in a small village about 1 hour from Prague - a totally different world to Prague - right out in the country, the village had no shops and no bus service! If you look at my off the beaten path tip - Svata Hora - this is actually the place where my friends got married a few years ago!
Prague is definitely one of the most beautiful cities I have ever visited and thanks to my expert guide, I did get to see a lot of Prague in one day, but obviously would like to visit again someday.....

    Nice tips! I want to go, but my husband went before we met and now I may have a hard time getting him to go back. He only wants places that make his map more blue! :D

    I adored the little huts selling gifts they reminded me of a Christmas Market yet it was early October when I was there. Good page

    I think my Prague page is the only one that doesn't mention the Golden Lane. I didn't know about it when I was there.
