“The heart of PRague”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

I loved the old town, specialy because there was a chrismas time, and the squares were full of Czech pastries, good food, warm wine etc. Old buildings and the old spirit give the old town the flair. Just a pleasant place to be.

“Really gorgeous old town.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013 via mobile

Not really much to say other than its beautiful. Loads to see & do.
Spend hours wondering around & enjoying the sights, just one tip the stalls selling hot food is charged on weight so ends up pricey, think a bowl of potato, ham & onion was around £6.00! Shocking when you can get a main meal in any decent restaurant for the same but then it is in tourist area & it did taste fantastic!

“the most beautifull city of the world?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

We have visited many cities all over the world but the centre of Prague seems the most beautiful and interesting. The old architecture, the way everything is preserved, the atmosphere and vitality and the reasonable pricing of restaurants, taxis and public transportation and its frequency are outstanding. A must for everybody.
