The capital of Czechia (or the Czech Republic) is world-famous for its stunning architecture, inspiring museums and grand opera halls. Many thousands visit each year, seeking that Bohemian spirit. The city isn’t huge, so most sites are within walking distance of each other. Whilst many visit at Christmas for that festive sparkle, Prague is a great destination at any time of year. Here is a list of three must-sees in this gorgeous city.

Prague Castle

Like something from a fairy story, Prague Castle is an impressive monument with a history to match. Here, emperors have been crowned and popes anointed. Wander around the extensive grounds, and make sure to stop and take a look at the breath-taking cityscape from the castle ramparts.

Vltava River

The longest river in Czechia passes through its capital. Locals love lounging on its banks with a beer in the evenings. The river cruises set off daily and often provide interesting historical and cultural details about the city.

Vyšehrad Fort

Looming above the river, this fort dates from the 10th century and offers panoramic views over the city. It is also quieter and more peaceful than the castle, which can become crowded due to its popularity with tourists.
