Visit the Largest Castle in the World:   No visit to Prague is complete without taking a tour of Prague Castle! It's the largest castle in the entire world, as it covers 70,0000 square meters. It houses the St. Vitus Cathedral, a couple of museums, churches, the presidential palace, defense towers, and the Golden Lane. In fact, exploring the entirety of Prague Castle can take days. 

Stay in Luxurious Accommodations: Old Town Square is also known for its quality lodgings such as Hotel U Prince. Situated right across from the Astronomical Clock, the building has the appearance of an 18th century structure. Each of the 24 rooms has its own character. The lavish furniture and gorgeous bed sheets are all laid out with a personal touch. You'll feel immersed in the local culture while enjoying first class hospitality. 

Admire Incredible Craftsmanship: The amazing thing about the Astronomical Clock is that it's over 600 years old and it just keeps on ticking! Go to the center of Old Town Square, and time your visit to when the clock marks the hour. You'll see the 12 Apostles start to move and chime along with Death to make note of the time.  

Sample Presitious Cusine: If you like to dine in style, you can add the Allegro in the Four Seasons Hotel to your list of restaurants to try. The Allegro was awarded a Michelin Star in 2008 for the high quality of Chef Andrea Accordi's dishes. It's important to note that Prague was the first nation to receive the honor after the Cold War. 

Taste Local Delicacies: In addition to fine dining, you can also roam the streets to sample local delicacies. One of the must-try local cuisines is Svíčková with dumplings, which you can try out in Café Louvre. It's basically consists of sirloin beef marinated for a day, root vegetable cream sauce, along with bread dumplings, a lemon slice, cranberry sauce and unsweetened whipped cream. This is a favorite Sunday dish and it's a great savory experience for any tourist.

Experience the Nightlife: Charles Bridge is beautiful during the day, but it truly comes alive at night. The lights make it a breathtaking sight to behold, and wandering musicians create a lively ambience. Imbibe the Beer Culture: The Czechs truly love their beer. They drink the most beer per capita out of all the countries in the world, and they have a preference for Pilsners. Prague has beer gardens during the summer, where visitors can enjoy watching sports and music events. They even have beer spas and make bath products that are beer-based. Have you ever done these things?
