Why fly to Prague?
Picture windy cobblestone streets, weaving through winding passageways and charming neighborhoods flanked by curlicued, red-hatted buildings and you have the lovely city of Prague. The capital of the Czech Republic is a city bathed in a history that can only be rivalled by fables. Straddling the Vltava River, the city is split into two.
Prague has an important place in the European narrative and numerous historic buildings to support its large role including the Charles Bridge, the Prague Castle and the Jewish quarter, making the city center a UNESCO world heritage site.
Other sites include Church of Our Lady before Tyn and the Staronova Synagogue as well as the Clam-Gallas Palace. These structures range from the 13th century and onwards and provide visitors a chance to marvel at how such beauty in design and architecture was created without the use of modern tools.
The National Gallery in Prague is a wealth of the classics with sculptures by the greats to the tune of Van Gogh and Picasso. The city is also host to large music festivals include the Prague International Music Festival and the Prague International Organ Festival and is home to the prized Prague Symphony Orchestra and the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra.
Prague has a vibrant coffee house culture that deserves some time to soak in. The cuisine may seem for the adventurous if you are used to perhaps roast chicken and steak. Dishes include hory snails and semolina puree or beef tongue and yellow pea at some of the high end restaurants. However there are also lovely decadent delights abound like croissants stuffed with eggs and butter.
Summers in Prague are lovely and warm. The temperatures during the summers months are generally in the very comfortable 20s, and a little bit cooler than that in the evenings. The summer is also when the city receives the most amount of rain. The winters are cool with temperatures dropping down toward 0.
