Prague, Czechia is among the world’s most beautiful cities. Nicknamed “the City of a Hundred Spires,” the medieval wonderland of colorful baroque architecture is bisected by the Vltava River. Highlights include Prague Castle, Old Town Square, towering Gothic churches and the medieval Astronomical Clock. Pedestrian only Charles Bridge dates to 1402 and is lined with grand statues of Catholic saints. The bridge offers majestic vistas of the city while strolling along its cobblestone path.
For those looking to get off the busy tourist trail, Vršovice is a laid-back district dotted with art nouveau buildings. It’s home to many boutique shops, inventive restaurants and quality craft beer bars.
While the Czech Republic is known for good beer, I found the best brews outside the touristy establishments, which typically have exclusive arrangements to only serve beer by Czechia’s largest beer producers like Pilsner Urquell.
