There is much to do and see in the imperial city of Prague. Visit the hilltop Castle District, with the Royal Palace and St George’s Basilica. Roughly the size of seven football fields, Prague Castle contains stunning architecture in the form of churches, gardens, alleyways and royal residences. The Royal Palace is one of the oldest parts of Prague Castle, dating back to the 12th century, whilst St George’s Basilica is the oldest surviving church building within Prague Castle.
Prague’s Architectural Magnificence
Another architectural marvel is the ultra-modern Dancing House, also known as the Nationale-Nederlanden building or Fred and Ginger after the dancers of the same name. It has an unusual curved design representing two dancers which is especially striking in the city centre because it is a modern building surrounded by historic architecture. The top floor of the Dancing House is open to the public and is home to one of the city’s leading restaurants: the Ginger and Fred Restaurant, which has far reaching views over the Vltava River and beyond. A must for a visit to Prague is a leisurely walk over Charles Bridge which connects the Old Town with Malá Strana. If you arrive at dawn, you’ll beat the crowds and enjoy a glorious sunrise over the city.

Experience the magnificent Chateau while delighting your taste buds with the excellent local wine.
See the magnificent city of Prague and explore the city and beyond as it gives way to the rural and rustic lands of Bohemia, a landscape of rolling hills, rich farmland and thick forests dotted with castles, chateaux and picturesque towns.
