People travel to Prague from all over the world to tour the legendary castles of the city and wander its narrow romantic streets hemmed in by breathtaking baroque, gothic, and renaissance architecture. While you're here, see some of finest art in the western world, sample the work of Prague's famous monastic breweries, explore the charming riverside parks and take in the local ambiance. It's possible to see the most important sights in just a day or two, but if you slow down and take your time, you'll find additional hidden treasures often overshadowed by the grandest of the clocks, castles, and magnificent art galleries.
