A timeless city, with layers of history and charm - Prague has thoroughly earned its UNESCO World Heritage status.Bursting at the seams with a magnificent display of stunning architecture – which ranges from gothic to neoclassical – this compact city is best explored, and admired, by foot. After a day of sightseeing, embrace the traditional café culture at Café Imperial and admire its splendid Art Nouveau décor.
