“Beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

This is the Prague that has always existed in my imagination. Old, beautiful, and somewhat mysterious. Every building has a fascinating history, from Kafka to the astronomical clock. There are plenty of outdoor cafes and restaurants for you to enjoy a traditional Czech meal and people watch. Plenty of ghost tours and pub crawls at night too. Definitely not to be missed.

“People live in Sculptures here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

Look at those buildings! People do live in Scupltures here. This is just as rewarding as an Art Museum. Wow! This surely beats modern Architecure. It´s a great place for a romantic stroll arm in arm, to find a restaurant to eat or for coffee or just a glass of wine. If you don´t want to shop, pick up your mobile and walk into some of the souvernir shops, particularly those with Glass Art and take some pictures as souvernirs. You´ll see things here you never will see anywhere else.

“Huge and fabulous oldtown”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

I was impressed by the size of Prague's oldtown. Even 4-5 public transport stops away from the oldtown centre you can spot beautiful buildings, churches and so on. From now on it's one of my favourite oldtowns I've ever been. And I'm sure it's even prettier in spring or summer.

“Picturesque and charming. Not to be missed.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

A must-see for anyone who goes to Prague. Go on your own with a good guidebook, or take one of the "tips only" free tours. Enjoy the town square, the Astronomical clock, Charles Bridge, the various churches and the Spanish synagogue.
