Prague, historic European hotspot in the Czech Republic
If you're looking for a Europe destination that ticks all the boxes, Prague is it. The City of a Thousand Spires is home to around 500 spectacular steeples, a 14th-century stone bridge, a hilltop castle and a lovely, lazy river – the Vltava. This Czech Republic capital brings you all the atmosphere of Central Europe in one easily explored city. It's rich in Bohemian, Gothic and Baroque architecture – and has a history spanning over 700 years. It also flaunts plenty of art galleries, cute cafés and old-fashioned bars. Spend your days here exploring the maze of cobbled streets and hidden courtyards, snapping photos of the ancient buildings and tucking into traditional Czech cuisine, such as roasted pork with sauerkraut and bread dumplings.
