If you want to cover all the highlights in Prague, then you will need 5 days, that is, as long as you arrive early in the morning.
From art nouveau to baroque, cubism, gothic, neoclassicism and renaissance, Prague is virtually every architecture buff’s fantasy. Fortunately, the city escaped most World War II-related damage and there were low levels of postwar construction in its sizeable old town. Careful post-communist building restoration, combined with an enduring commitment to preserving heritage, meant that Prague became one of Europe’s most popular destinations fairly quickly after the end of the Cold War.
Surprising to some, Prague wasn’t alwayson the beaten path. Decades ago, the Soviets highly discouraged westerners from visiting. Following the fall of the Iron Curtain, now there are often more tourists around than locals. This surge in tourism has its pros and cons, of course. On one hand, Prague has rapidly modernized. On the other, the hordes of tourists and tacky commercialism often team up to form a theme park-like atmosphere. Nevertheless, the bottom line is that Prague undoubtedly ranks among the world’s most gorgeous cities, period. What’s more, this city not only has its looks but plenty of activities as well, from beer gardens to riverside parks to a rich music and cultural arts scene. Prague is the jewel of Central Europe, a destination you definitely do not want to miss.
