COBBLED LANES AND SPIRE-TOPPED TOWERS SET A CLASSIC EUROPEAN SCENE IN THE CZECH REPUBLIC CAPITAL.

The one-time seat of the Holy Roman Emperor, postcard-perfect Prague has long attracted admirers—Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Franz Kafka among them—to this gorgeously Gothic city on the Vltava River. An ever-evolving cityscape, iconic squares and ancient chapels mingle with new-Baroque buildings and contemporary architecture.

RUDOLFINUM_700x380

Bold Bohemian architecture impresses at the Rudolfinum, a Neo-Renaissance beauty on the banks of the Vltava River. Home to the Czech Philharmonic, this culture center hosts world-class musicians in the elegant concert halls where frescoes, detailed reliefs and soaring Roman colonnades also take center stage. Discover forward thinking exhibitions in the Galerie Rudolfinum and refresh with an afternoon coffee and pastry at the charming cafe.

ST. VITUS CATHEDRAL
St.-Vitus-Cathedral_700x380

A host of spires atop Prague’s central cathedral pierce the sky like Gothic stalagmites. Centuries in the making, the foundation stone was laid in the 14th century but the great cathedral was not completed until 1929. Marvel at the stained glass windows in a rainbow of rich colors created by contemporary Czech artists including Alfons Mucha. A tour of art history through the ages is on display with the intricate 14th-century mosaic of The Last Judgement above the Golden Gate, a Romanesque rotunda that mixes with French Gothic style and interiors dripping with baroque carvings and details.

THE CHARLES BRIDGE AND KAMPA ISLAND
Charles-Bridge_700x380

A stroll over Prague’s most well-known landmark is a step back in time to the 14th century. Wander beneath the stoic gaze of the dramatic statues of saints lining this stone footbridge thick with buskers and vendors. Continue south of the bridge and beyond the bustling crowds, to picturesque Kampa Island. This leafy atoll on the Vltava River is a patchwork of tranquil parks, romantic lanes and the Kampa Museum, a treasure trove of modern European artwork.

WALLENSTEIN GARDEN
Wallenstein-Gardens_700x380

Meticulously trimmed topiaries and bold box hedges encircle babbling fountains and mythical figures frozen in bronze relief in the wow-worthy Wallenstein Garden. The verdant Italian-style garden is the icing on the regal baroque cake that is the 17th-century Wallenstein Palace, now the current home of the Czech Senate. Drift through the hedge mazes and the fragrant flowering paths April through October, and join the locals at the Sala Terrena for dreamy summer concerts.
