Prague ©
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.
Get some cultural insight at Staromestske namesti and Vyšehrad National Cultural Monument. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Prague Castle and Prague Astronomical Clock. Change things up with a short trip to St. George Forest (Svatojirsky les) in Mcely (about 58 minutes away). There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Lobkowicz Palace, pause for some serene contemplation at Church of Saint Ludmila, browse the exhibits of Powder Tower, and pedal to the sights with Cayman Travel.
