Prague lures millions of tourists each year with its World Heritage-listed medieval city center--a labyrinth of narrow lanes, bridges, cathedrals, and palaces overlooked by a thousand-year-old castle.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like StaromEstske namEsti and Prague Astronomical Clock. Prague Castle and Church of Saint Ludmila will appeal to history buffs.
