The City of One Hundred Spires

As one of Europe’s most visited and most historic cities, Prague is a crossroads of Old World charm and 21st-century splendor. Meticulously preserved buildings tell the story of this ancient city through Gothic, Romanesque, baroque, and art nouveau architecture and its medieval center is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. On the flip side, the Czech capital has leapt into the modern era, with acclaimed restaurants, art museums, and cutting-edge shops popping up amid cobblestone streets and towering church spires. Your accommodations put you in the center of a city that has been an international cultural hub for centuries – and, likely, centuries to come.

Fresh Things to Do

Featured Activity


  • The World’s Largest Castle

    Spanning an area bigger than seven football fields, Prague Castle is the largest ancient castle in the world. More than just a castle, it’s actually a labyrinth of churches, palaces, gardens, plazas, towers, and more. Multiple visits are necessary to see everything. Below, we’ve outlined some good starting points.

    St. Vitus Cathedral. The castle’s heart, this breathtaking structure is arguably the most important religious site in the country. Stained-glass windows and frescoes line the various chapels and halls where kings were crowned, saints were declared, and monarchs were laid to rest.

    The Royal Garden. Commissioned by Emperor Ferdinand I in 1534 as a gift for his wife, these beautiful grounds were inspired by Italian Renaissance gardens. Take a leisurely stroll through beds of flowers and other flora and wander into the palaces located throughout.

    Galleries. The numerous galleries within the castle (and surrounding streets) are some of Prague’s best. As you peruse the displays and artifacts, you’ll pick up bits of Czech history.
