GETTING TO KNOW THE GOLDEN CITY

Praha, Golden City, City of a Thousand Spires – the Czech capital has many names. But more importantly: The city looks like something out of a picture book and is always worth a visit. Having survived the Second World War almost intact, many of Prague’s buildings are authentic witnesses to a bygone era, accompanying visitors along their way. But you’d be sorely mistaken if you thought Prague was old-fashioned and dusty. The city is more vibrant than ever, with a new attraction around every corner.

Prague has been in a state of flux for years and is a magnet for new young artists, designers, performers and visionaries. They play their part in adding a modern, contemporary flair to the neighbourhoods and promenades, creating a unique overall image.

THE BEST TIME TO VISIT PRAGUE

Prague is worth visiting at any time of the year. Due to its proximity to Germany, the climate differs only slightly and the weather is mainly good from May to September. With temperatures easily reaching 30 degrees Celsius at the height of summer, the best time for excursions and activities is late spring and autumn.

Prague also has its charms in winter. Due to the influence of the Russian cold, it can get very cold at times. However, this does not detract from the atmosphere of the city. On the contrary: You will have this romantic town pretty much to yourself, and you can wander through it at your own pace.

EATING AND DRINKING IN PRAGUE

Prague is a great place to enjoy a fine meal. Bohemian cuisine is hearty, meat-heavy and includes many traditional dishes such as Bohemian dumplings, goulash, roasts and more. The best drink to go with it? A cold beer from one of the local breweries, of course. In Prague alone, there are more than 30 of them.

Those with a sweet tooth will also be in their element. Be sure to try “trdelnik”, a pastry that originated in Slovakia but is so popular in the Czech Republic that it can be found on almost every corner in Prague. The Bohemian Baumstriezel is wrapped around a stick and grilled over an open fire. It is available with a variety of toppings such as sugar, nuts and cinnamon to round off the taste experience.

OUR TOP 3 SIGHTS IN PRAGUE

CHARLES BRIDGE
The Charles Bridge is a must see when visiting Prague. It is one of the oldest stone bridges in Europe and serves as the link between the Old Town and the Lesser Town. What adds to its charm are the numerous statues of saints that line the bridge. Saint John of Nepomuk is the most famous of the 30 statues. According to legend, he was pushed into the Vltava River from the place where his statue now stands. Because it is said to be good luck to touch the dog relief at the foot of his monument, this sacred figure is always a popular destination for visitors. In addition to the large number of tourists, the bridge is also animated by street musicians and souvenir sellers. There are plenty of photo opportunities here, that is for sure.


PRAGUE CASTLE AND THE HRADČANY CASTLE DISTRICT
This climb is worth it! The Prague Castle is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the largest castle complex in the world and is therefore a very popular tourist destination. We recommend an early morning visit so that you can explore the various attractions of the Hradčany Castle District with as little stress as possible. In addition to Prague Castle, which offers breathtaking views over the rooftops of the city, the imposing St Vitus Cathedral, the Golden Lane, the Royal Garden and the Loreto pilgrimage site are all within easy reach.


POWDER TOWER
The gateway to the Old Town is none other than Prague’s Powder Tower. Towering over the city centre at a proud height of 65 metres, it was one of the 13 fortified towers that surrounded the old city since 1475. It owes its name to the fact that it was used for the storage of black powder until the end of the 17th century.

CZECH KORUNA AS CURRENCY

The official currency of the Czech Republic is the Czech Koruna (internationally abbreviated as CZK). Depending on the exchange rate, one Czech koruna is worth about € 0.04. With a bit of luck, you can pay with euros in some shops and restaurants, but it is safer to exchange your cash for korunas at local banks or exchange offices. Of course, you can also withdraw money with your debit or credit card from a traditional ATM.
