9 days - 7 nights
Prague, Czech Republic
Explore at your own pace all of the attractions of the picture-postcard city of Prague, while spending seven full days exploring its various districts, including Stare Mesto (the Old Town) and Nove Mesto (the New Town). Enjoy as well two half-day organized excursions, which will give you full view of the city.
It is difficult to describe in so few lines how beautiful the city of Prague is. We could speak of a city full of charm and mystery with a fairy-tale side.
Its castle, proud and majestic on its hill that dominates the city, was the seat of political and religious power since the 9th century. It is the most beautiful in the country. Its numerous rooms and its church, Saint Vitus, will transport you to medieval times.
We tour Prague on foot. We wander through the narrow streets, scattered with 19th-century frescoes. We settle in a café while listening to the original chime of the astronomical clock in the Old Town square. The Charles Bridge that links the two river banks is also not to be missed.
On the cultural side, Prague has nothing to envy over other European capitals. One can just cite the numerous art galleries, theatres offering classical music performances, museums, and especially the Prague Spring International Music Festival in May.
