Amongst Prague’s extensive array of historic and beautiful structures is Prague Castle and St. Vitus Cathedral, a gothic style cathedral with underground tombs. Both sights offer incredible views.
The 700 year Old Town Square, is at the throbbing heart of tourist Prague and contains the Old Town Hall Tower and several impressive churches. Charles Bridge links the Lesser Town and the Castle above with the Old and New Towns. One of the most enjoyable aspects of visiting Prague is that much of the compact old core is accessible on foot, with plenty of bars and cafes and an excellent public transport system.
Prague is also unquestionably a musical city. Prague Spring Festival is one of the major world-class festivals but concerts abound throughout the year. Buskers are found everywhere and the streets, squares and bridges echo to everything from talented students from the Conservatoire, to Dixieland jazz, folk and world music and pop.
