If you are looking to host an event, you definitely don’t want to overlook Prague. This city has been a major influence in European history and culture and is still attracting visitors from around the globe. Prague is becoming one of the more popular destinations in Europe and we are going to tell you why!
One of the main reasons that Prague is high on the bucket list of places to visit is that it is not expensive at all. Actually, the Euro goes really far there. Everything- and we mean absolutely everything- is significantly cheaper compared to Western Europe. You can have a pint of domestic beer (which is super tasty!) for less than 2€, while a decent 3-course meal for two people would cost around 30€. Even the public transport, which is excellent, is a super easy-to-use and a cost-effective way to get around the city. One downside is that some establishments are less likely to accept cards, so make sure that you have enough cash on you!
Prague is absolutely a dream come true for any architecture junky- it’s essentially a timeline of different styles: Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, and a whole lot more. Roam the grounds of Prague Castle- the largest ancient castle in the world - or view the controversial Soviet-looking Television Tower. The National Theatre is a great example of Neo-Renaissance architecture and it’s especially impressive at night as its brilliant lights reflect on the Vltava River. The Dancing House in New Town, built in the 90’s, is popular to photograph while it represents Prague’s post-communist interpretation of modern architecture. Basically, there's not enough time to visit all the architectural gems that Prague has to offer.
Czech cuisine is not easy to find throughout the rest of Europe, and we aren’t really sure why. Traditional Czech food is incredibly tasty and incredibly underrated. Pork is the most common meat, you’ll find it in a stew, roasted with cabbage, fried as a schnitzel, or baked as a burger. Meat dishes are commonly marinated days in advance, making them tender and succulent. Be sure to try the Prague style beef goulash- a common yet tasty stew that’s traditionally made throughout Eastern Europe. Insider’s tip: don’t forget to leave room for dessert. The pastries and strudel in Prague are to die for!
Historically speaking, Prague was once one of the most important cities in the world. Also named the “Golden City”, it was the capital of the Holy Roman Empire, a trade hub, and one of the most prominent cities in Europe. Prague was also once the centre of alchemy and science and even Albert Einstein spent some time there as a professor at the beginning of the 20th century. Artists are spotted around the city- etching, painting, and selling their work on the narrow cobblestoned streets. It takes days and even weeks to visit the numerous galleries and museums that are scattered throughout the city. Be sure to visit the National Gallery and the Convent of St Agnes of Bohemia, as the historical buildings themselves are landmarks that are just as impressive as the art they house.
Prague is definitely a walking city, as there are amazing sights to see around every corner you turn and each hill you climb. You can stroll around Old Town and visit Saint Nicholas’ Church and the 600 year-old Astronomical clock in order to get a feel of the rich history. Climb to the top of the Old Town Hall Tower to get a view of the two magnificent landmarks and the bustling square below. The walk across the Charles Bridge- a historic structure that was built in the 14th century- has amazing 360 degree views. One of the most splendid urban views you may ever see is from the top of Prague Castle, which overlooks a sea of red rooftops.
