Prague-360 Degrees of Beauty

Prague is said to rival Paris in beauty.  It is a gorgeous city with its multitude of various architecture styles of baroque, neoclassical, Prague-neoclassical, Victorian, and yet, also modern.

There are many things to see in this city and staying in Old Town, you’ll be close to them all.  There are many hotels in this area, I stayed at Hilton Prague Old Town ( V Celnici 2079/7 | Nove Mesto, Prague 110 00, Czech Republic).  The hotel has an executive lounge (extra fee) that has complimentary breakfast in the mornings, tea, coffee, cocktails, and snacks during the day and evenings with light dinner in the evenings. There’s also free Wi-Fi, TV, and it is a great place to read or meet new travelers and discuss site-seeing tips between your new found friends.  The hotel has very reasonable rates, around $200 a night when I visited in Sept. 2015.

Blocks away are multitudes of popular sites to see such as the Astronomical Clock, which you can pay a small fee and climb to the top to get a panorama view of the square, the Charles Bridge, which allows for a delightful stroll across the river.  Also just blocks away from this hotel is the marvelous St. Vitus Cathedral.  A wonderful addition to your standard sightseeing is to eat with the locals…no it is a food tour and the company is Eat with Locals and a great way to eat at places you wouldn’t normally eat at and eat food you wouldn’t know to eat and in the process, get great information about the local cuisine from the very knowledgeable guides.

Prague is a magical city with a lot to see around every nook and corner.  Three to four days should be enough and allow you to explore nearby cities such as Budapest.
