This magical city of bridges, cathedrals, gold-tipped towers and church domes, has been mirrored in the surface of the swan-filled Vltava River for more than ten centuries. Almost undamaged by WWII, Prague’s medieval centre remains a wonderful mixture of cobbled lanes, walled courtyards, cathedrals and countless church spires all in the shadow of her majestic 9th century castle.
A short walk from the New Town’s central Wenceslas Square, the grand Prague State Opera house is one of the city’s most exquisite buildings. Of course, the only way to truly experience the old world ambiance of Prague’s Opera House is to attend a performance.
Prague’s central boulevard and largest public square, Wenceslas Square has been the social and political heart of the city for hundreds of years and is home to some of the city’s finest works of architecture. Today Wenceslas Square is the commercial center of the city.
