Prague: The City Of Romance and Magic

By Neharika Padala

Meet the history. Watch the centuries flow and let the mysteries surround you. It is all possible in Prague. Renowned for its architecture, arts and cuisine, the capital of Czech Republic offers countless opportunities to satisfy both body and soul.

Follow the steps of kings

To experience its striking atmosphere, start at the heart of the city. Follow the Royal Road, a specific route the kings-to-be used to take to the coronation ceremony. Walking in their steps, you will pass many fascinating monuments to be rewarded with a splendid view from the Prague Castle the grand former seat of Czech kings.

Enjoy the riverside

Do not miss Vysehrad, built on the rock above the river as a great fortress it once was. The riverside will then lead you towards the magnificent building of the National Theater, while passing by the Dancing House, a marvelous, once-controversial piece of modern architecture. And do not forget that the most intimate and romantic way to explore the city is taking a ride in a horse-drawn carriage or renting a boat to slowly scull among Prague’s many bridges..

Preserve the experience

If you feel like bringing home a memory in more tangible form, visit Parizska Street, where the world’s most luxurious brands reside. However, a tasteful and truly Czech souvenir can also be crystal glass. Manufactured here for centuries, the craftsmanship and artistry is exceptional. Take a tour to one of the traditional glassworks, for example Crystal Bohemia located in a nearby city Podebrady, and watch the fascinating process of creating the glass products.

Live like a prince

While the city might be medieval, the comforts it offers are very contemporary. You can choose from a number of romantic five-star hotels located in the picturesque city centre. If you are more attracted by the tranquility and romance of a chateau environment, stay at one of country´s charming chateaux.
