The amazing architecture of St. Vitus Cathedral in front of clouds and a blue sky.
Curator’s statement

My heart has always been tied to Prague, in central Europe, where my family roots lie. From the cobblestone streets around Prague Castle to the picturesque stone bridges spanning the Vltava River, along with its stunning architecture, Prague offers something for everyone. And when visiting central Europe, it is just a scenic train ride through the countryside to neighboring Munich in Germany to the southwest, and Vienna to the Southeast.

Things to do in Prague

A view of the astronomy clock tower in Prague. It's a large, stone building with blue, yellow and red detailing.

Orloj:

When visiting Prague, a must-see attraction is the Old Astronomical Clock Tower (Orloj), situated in the Old Town Square (Staromestske Namesti). Built in 1410, it stands as a breathtaking marvel of both architecture and engineering. One highlight not to be missed at the Orloj is The Walk of the Apostles, a short show that occurs at the top of every hour.

Charles Bridge:

Another must-see in Prague is the Charles Bridge, a medieval stone bridge across the Vltava River, flowing through the heart of Prague, connecting Old Town to Mala Strana (Lesser Town). Built in the 15th century, the bridge is a structural masterpiece. Supported by 16 arches, it spans 516 meters and is adorned with three bridge towers and is embellished by 30 statues and sculptures. Today, it attracts artists, painters, musicians and tourists alike.

Prague Castle:

Another essential sight to explore is Prague Castle. Serving as a symbol of the Czech State for over 1000 years, this UNESCO World Heritage site is revered for its historical significance. Spanning a vast area, it's recognized as the largest coherent castle complex, globally. Within its grounds lies the majestic St. Vitus Cathedral, a soaring example of Gothic architecture and the foremost church in the country, showcasing intricate stained glass windows and ornate spires.

Places to eat & drink in Prague

Kuchyně (The Kitchen): Situated in Hradcanske Namesti, within the first courtyard of Prague Castle, enjoy delicious Czech cuisine and beer. A personal favorite entrée is the Řízek z vepřové krkovice (Breaded pork steak).
