One of Europe’s most popular tourist destinations, due to its rich cultural heritage and architectural spectacles which miraculously survived the destruction of WWII and Soviet occupation, there is always something to do or see in Prague. To the west of the Vltava River in the Hradčany district is undoubtedly one of the capital’s premier sights, Prague Castle. Dating back to the 9th century, the castle is officially the largest ancient castle in the world and has hosted the kings of Bohemia, Roman Emperors and now the modern-day presidents of the Czech Republic. Due to its age, the castle features virtually every architectural style of the past millennium, from Romanesque to Bohemian baroque, making exploring it a dazzlingly unique experience and one of the city’s most popular attractions. As well as several churches, palaces, gardens and defence towers, the castle complex is also home to several established museums, including the Czech National Gallery and the Toy Museum.
A few minutes north by public transport is another recommended destination for tourists, the widely acclaimed Prague Zoo. Spanning 111 acres and boasting 4,400 exotic animals, the zoo is regarded as one of the best in the world, making it a must-see for families and young children.
