Being a fan of all things historical, I thought Prague was a truly wonderful place to visit! We stayed at the foot of the castle and found everything we liked within easy walking distance. Walking across the beautiful Charles Bridge with artists all around was such an enjoyable experience as well as the River Cruise we took. The castle grounds were very nice and St.Vitus Cathedral left us awe-struck. I would highly recommend a trip to this European gem!
Beautiful, but becomes a bit boring after 4-5 days, not much happening place. Most of the shops close at 6:00 pm, some of the restaurants close at 21.00. There are some pubs that run till mid-night though, but mostly have elderly crows.
