Prague

Prague is the equal of Paris in terms of beauty. Its history goes back a millennium. And the beer? The best in Europe. Prague, capital city of the Czech Republic, is bisected by the Vltava River. Nicknamed “the City of a Hundred Spires,” it’s known for its Old Town Square, the heart of its historic core, with colorful baroque buildings, Gothic churches and the medieval Astronomical Clock, which gives an animated hourly show. Completed in 1402, pedestrian Charles Bridge is lined with statues of Catholic saints. It is one of the largest cities of Central Europe and has served as the capital of the historic region of Bohemia for centuries. The city is famous for its unique medieval architecture, the historical centre of Prague is inscribed in the World Heritage List.

This magical city of bridges, cathedrals, gold-tipped towers and church domes, has been mirrored in the surface of the swan-filled Vltava River for more than ten centuries. Almost undamaged by WWII, Prague's medieval centre remains a wonderful mixture of cobbled lanes, walled courtyards, cathedrals and countless church spires all in the shadow of her majestic 9th century castle that looks eastward as the sun sets behind her. Prague is also a modern and vibrant city full of energy, music, cultural art, fine dining and special events catering to the independent traveler's thirst for adventure.

Prague's art galleries may not have the allure of the Louvre, but Bohemian art offers much to admire, from the glowing Gothic altarpieces in the Convent of St Agnes, to the luscious art nouveau of Alfons Mucha, and the magnificent collection of 20th-century surrealists, cubists and constructivists in the Veletržní Palác. The weird and witty sculpture of David Cerný punctuates Prague's public spaces, and the city itself offers a smorgasbord of stunning architecture, from the soaring verticals of Gothic and the exuberance of baroque to the sensual elegance of art nouveau and the chiselled cheekbones of cubist facades.

The best beer in the world just got better. Since the invention of Pilsner Urquell in 1842, the Czechs have been famous for producing some of the world's finest brews. But the internationally famous brand names – Urquell, Staropramen and Budvar – have been equalled, and even surpassed, by a bunch of regional Czech beers and microbreweries that are catering to a renewed interest in traditional brewing. Never before have Prague's pubs offered such a wide range of ales – names you'll now have to get your head around include Kout na Šumave, Svijanský Rytír and Velkopopovický Kozel.

Prague's maze of cobbled lanes and hidden courtyards is a paradise for the aimless wanderer, always beckoning you to explore a little further. Just a few blocks away from the Old Town Square you can stumble across ancient chapels, unexpected gardens, cute cafes and old-fashioned bars with hardly a tourist in sight. One of the great joys of the city is its potential for exploration – neighbourhoods such as Vinohrady and Bubenec can reward the urban adventurer with countless memorable cameos, from the setting sun glinting off church domes, to the strains of Dvorák wafting from an open window.

It is regarded by many as one of Europe's most charming, colorful and beautiful cities, Prague has become the most popular travel destination in Central Europe along with Vienna and Krakow. Millions of tourists visit the city every year.

Weather
Spring (March – May)
Spring (March – May)
Spring usually begins in the second half of March when temperatures no longer tend to drop below freezing, the snow starts to melt in most areas, and the first flowers appear. It can still be quite chilly and the lows often hover around 0°C/32°F or can still drop below freezing. The highs can climb to 8-14°C/46-57°F. April weather in the Czech Republic is unpredictable and can change from sunny to snowy in a matter of minutes. It can also get windy and temperatures can vary quite a bit. May can be a beautiful, warm month, with temperatures at 15-25°C/60-77°F during the day. Flowers and trees are in bloom. There are three days in the middle of May (May 12 – 14) referred to as the days of the “frozen Saints” or “frozen brothers” of Pankrác, Servác and Bonifác (in Czech zmrzlíci, zmrzlí svatí or zmrzlí bratri) when it can get close to freezing in the morning. It is the last reminder of the winter past.
Summer (June - August)
Summer (June - August)
Summer in the Czech Republic typically covers the period from June through mid-September. Czech summers are usually mild (20-27°C/70-80°F) and somewhat humid, with the highest temperatures climbing to 30-35°C/85-95°F (occasionally higher) for short periods. Such heat waves can be expected in July and August. Sudden showers and thunderstorms are common, so bring an umbrella or be prepared to dash for cover.
Autumn (September – November)
Autumn (September – November)
Autumn colors are among the best nature can create. Formerly green leaves turn into brilliant shades of yellow, orange and red. In the Czech Republic, there are four seasons and thus you can admire this brightly colored autumn foliage even in Prague.
Winter (December – February)
Winter (December – February)
Czech winter usually lasts from mid-November through mid-March. Winters are cold, cloudy, icy and wet with freezing temperatures. The first snow often comes in November and the lowest temperatures (-5°C/20°F to -10°C/10°F, less in higher elevations) can be expected in January and February. The first half of March is usually chilly and wet with temperatures below 10°C/50°F. There can still be snow in March. Be prepared to layer and bundle up when visiting the Czech Republic in winter; wear shoes that can handle snow and water; check the weather forecast before you go. If you are coming to Prague for the Christmas holidays, read about December Weather in Prague. Czech weather can be unpredictable in every season. One year, winter lasted from November into April and was one of the longest and coldest in a very long time, with unusually large amounts of snow. The next winter was mild with unseasonably warm temperatures, almost complete lack of snow, and flowers and trees blooming in Prague in January.
