The City of a thousand spires

There’s a kind of magic that exists in the Czech capital that you can’t find anywhere else.

Maybe it’s the clock that tells much more than time, the bridge that has more life than most small towns, or the skyline that’s dotted with towers and turrets. Maybe it’s the fact that the city’s history is as colorful as the buildings that line Old Town Square, or that its streets are filled with the smells of fresh trdelník and the echo of live jazz music.

Its atmosphere is intoxicating, its people friendly, and its facades beautiful. Prague is the kind of place that stays with you.
