The Czech city of Prague has an air of enchantment about it with its turrets, ancient clocks and cobblestone alleyways, arguably even more beautiful than Paris, Prague is an attractive stopover for culture and history buffs.
Walking down the city’s narrow cobblestone roads, culture buffs will revel in the abundant sights of baroque and renaissance architecture. Visitors will stumble in to tiny alleyways and find brightly painted gilded townhouses with an array of interesting little shops selling handmade toys, Bohemian crystal, souvenirs and fast food kiosks selling roasted pork sausages and all manner of stodgy fare.
Prague has an extensive public transport system comprising metro, trams and buses. Visit the information desks at RuzynÄ› airport, or Muzeum, MÅ¯stek, AndÄ›l and NádraÅ¾í Holešovice to get an English city transport guide. Tickets for the city’s public transport system cover all trams, buses and the metro and can be bought at metro stations or newsagents. The metro comprises three lines and operates from 05h00 to midnight daily. Tram and buses operate longer and schedules are posted at the stops. There’s also a funicular up PetÅ™ín Hill should you not wish to walk, though Prague is very easy to navigate on foot and many of the city’s most popular tourist attractions are located within close proximity of each other.
