Just a stone’s throw away from undoubtedly Prague’s most mesmerising historic landmark, the Prague Castle, this Hot Rate hotel could not be more ideally located. Dating back to 870 AD, this mammoth structure which dominates the Hradčany district is officially the largest ancient castle in the world. Since its inception, the castle has been home to the Kings of Bohemia, Holy Roman Emperors and the Presidents of Czechoslovakia, giving it a rich, inimitable history that can be experienced by wandering its numerous palaces, churches, royal banqueting halls, guard towers and picturesque walled gardens. Whilst the castle is open for the public to explore all year round, the must-see Bohemian Crown Jewels are put on display in the Vladislav Hall for just one week annually.

After spending an afternoon immersed in the castle’s antiquated past, tourists are advised to pay a visit to Prague’s imposing Petřín Lookout Tower set atop a large hill which dominates the city. This great 64m observation tower is often compared to Paris’ Eiffel Tower in its design and is accessible via a frequent funicular railway. Tourists may decide to embark on the challenging ascent or simply take the elevator to the tower’s gift shop, cafeteria and exhibition area which all give unparalleled panoramas over Prague’s city skyline.

Tourists are also advised to cross the famous Charles Bridge which leads into Prague’s remarkable Old Town. The bridge itself is adorned with intricate baroque statues and its great bridge tower is widely regarded as one of the finest examples of gothic architecture in the world, making the crossing into medieval Old Town seamless. Most of the area’s most notable landmarks are positioned around Old Town Square, including the captivating Powder Tower, St Nicholas Church, Czech National Gallery and the iconic Astronomical Clock.
