City Guide: Prague, Czech Republic
“The City of a Hundred Spires” will dazzle even the most wary of travelers. You’ll be enchanted by the fairytale architecture and old-world charm, and the hip nightlife will have you out dancing till the wee hours. With its Gothic spires, lovely river and lakes, and plentiful fountains, Prague is the perfect city for romantic walks.
What to do: Stroll through scented rose gardens. Listen to the chime of a 600-year-old astronomical clock. Kiss on the famous Charles Bridge. Marvel at the diversity of the architecture. Visit Prague Castle—the largest ancient castle in the world. Admire the work of Rodin and Picasso at the National Gallery.
Where to Stay: A medieval monastery has been lovingly restored to create the tranquil and romantic Hotel Questenberk. Snuggle under the covers in an attic room under the original roof beams, and take breakfast in the converted baroque chapel. You can score a deluxe room for as little as €60 and they offer many other great deals.
