Discover the very best of Prague

Prague is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful, attractive, and charming cities in the world.

The Prague Castle, on a hill above the historic city, is listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the largest continuous complex of castle buildings in the world. It covers an area of 70,000 m2. Together with Prague's historic center, it has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1992.

One of the most popular attractions in Prague, the Charles Bridge, the oldest bridge in the metropolis, connects the Old Town with the Lesser Town. Its foundations were laid in 1357 by Charles IV. It was completed in 1390, but back then it was known only as the Stone Bridge. It is best to walk on the bridge early in the morning before the crowds of tourists arrive.

Prague's Jewish District is also well-known. It was founded in the 13th century and preserves the history of Prague's Jews. The Old Synagogue is the oldest synagogue in Central Europe and is still used for worship.

Prague offers an endless amount of fantastic things to see. Below you will find a short list of the most desirable sights. If you need any further information and tips on where to go and what to do in Prague, please contact the Hotel Duo Concierge.
