The reason for Prague’s nickname, “The City of a Hundred Spires,” is obvious if you’re within sight of the core of the city. Church steeples and gothic towers dominate the skyline and invite visitors to perpetually get a bird’s-eye-view of the city’s medieval architecture. Combine that with the hills surrounding the river Vlatava and a visit to Prague makes you feel as though you’ve spent an equal amount of time soaring over the city as walking its narrow streets.

Prague has often stood at the crossroads of history and the past shines a light on every building and every street. The centuries-old Charles bridge, the Jewish Quarter with its atmospheric cemetery, the giant castle on the hill – all of them are haunted by the ghosts of Charles IV, Kafka, Dvorak, Mozart and other greats who once called Prague home.
