In regard to its aesthetic, Prague is on a level with Disneyland. From the Church of St. Nicholas to the Strahov Monastery, magnificent buildings are in abundance in the city – but make sure to put the illustrious Prague Castle at the top of your to-do list. Top tip: if you want an aerial view of Prague's architectural landscape, the historic fort of Vyšehrad is not to be missed.
Another key tourist destination to hit up is Charles Bridge. Spanning the Vltava river, observe the baroque-style statues as you cross over into the city’s Old Town. There, you’ll find the Old Town Hall with its famous medieval astronomical clock, and on the other side of the square, you’ll find the Art Nouveau-inspired Municipal House with its multiple chandeliers and old-school elevators.
All that sightseeing will inevitably cause you to work up an appetite, and, luckily for you, Prague has many upmarket places to eat at that are surprisingly cheap. Load up on traditional dishes at Lokál Dlouhááá, or try an experimental tasting menu at either Sansho or Eska for something a little different.
