"A kaleidoscope of images and tantalizing info-bits that flash out of the pages." -- Herald Tribune

Home to writers such as Kafka, artists such as Slavicek and Kokoschka, and composers such as Dvorak, the city of Prague pulsates with the beat of culture and history even as its landscape delights the eye. One of Europe's most beautiful and well-preserved cities, Prague offers travelers some of Europe's finest examples of baroque palaces, Gothic cathedrals, and Cubist facades, as well assome of its most magnificent museums, theaters, and concert halls.

Stroll past the statues on the Charles Bridge which leads to old Town Square where you can visit the Church of St. Nicholas, with its beautifully sculpted interior, the former Town Hall and its intricate Clock Tower, and the enormous complex of the Clementium which took over a century to complete. Visit the storied Prague Castle, wander through the peaceful Hradcany district, or linger in Wenceslas Squares, a symbol of Czech national pride and resistance. Visit the Museum of Musical Instruments, which houses more than 3,000 musical devices. Whether you visit for a week or a weekend, the delights of Prague will remain fondly etched in your memories for a lifetime.
