Every now and then we need to be reminded of the unbearable lightness of being… In less than two hours, SWISS or one of its partner airlines can lift you high above the mundane and set you down gently in “the city of a hundred spires”, where your romantic soul can feed on eons of history and beauty.
Now the sixth most-visited city in Europe, it has everything a traveler could look for – fascinating history, exquisite art and architecture, delicious local food and drink and affordable prices. As one of the largest cities in Europe, Prague continues to be an important political, cultural, and commercial center, and yours to discover just a short flight away.
Prague has a temperate climate and is a breathtakingly beautiful city to visit during any season. With its 1,100-year-old skyline dotted with beautiful domed churches and old towers, Prague is known as one of Europe’s architectural treasures. Exquisite examples of Gothic, Baroque, Renaissance and Art Nouveau styles are spread throughout the city, dramatically offset against the sturdy ancient Prague Castle.
Some of the city’s major tourist attractions include the famous Charles Bridge over the Vltava River with its striking statutes, the Jewish Quarter with its old synagogues and the many historic churches. Prague has one of the best-preserved historic city centers in Europe that is crisscrossed with narrow lanes and squares.
The Old Town Square is where you can see Prague’s mechanical clock, widely regarded as the best preserved medieval mechanical clock in the world, marking the turn of an hour. This is also a city that offers lots of live entertainment in the form of theater and music. You may also be surprised to discover how much Prague loves puppets. There are over 20 specialized puppet shops, 30 puppet makers and even a puppet museum, with live puppet shows at several theaters in the city. And before you take off again, do treat yourself to a famous Czech beer – or two.
