There was once a time when a vacation in Europe meant seeing London, Paris and maybe Switzerland. However, today, tourists are becoming more aware of other parts of Europe and the wonders they have to offer. Prague tour packages are a great choice for tourists who want to experience the magic of old world charm, while still enjoying all the comforts of a modern-day Europe.
Prague, which is the capital of the Czech Republic, has simply so much to offer, whether tourists are looking for history or just a chance to let their hair down. The Astronomical Clock, located at the Old Town Hall, is a must visit and is often a part of most Prague tour packages. While this clock might not tell tourists the time in the easiest manner, it is definitely worth marvelling at. The National Museum houses one of the largest collections of antiquities and is a great place to spend an afternoon. However, mornings should ideally be started on the Charles Bridge, which offers tourists a majestic view of the city, bathed in the rosy hues of a typical sunrise.
The music scene in Prague is incredibly alive and there are a plenty of places that music lovers can visit. Roxy Nightclub, Lucerna Music Bar and Karlovy Lazne Club are all wonderful venues to sample what the musicians of Europe have to offer.
For tourists who are more interested in jazz music, there are places like the Reduta Jazz Club and the popular USP Jazz Lounge. Travellers can choose to include such destinations in their tour package for Prague, as per their requirement.
Prague is also an ideal destination for those with a religious bent of mind, because there are several stunning places of worship. While the St. Nicholas Church has a baroque style of construction, the St. George’s Basilica has Romanesque architecture. Tourists opting for a tour package to Prague will also get a chance to visit the Old-New Synagogue, which has definite Gothic elements.
There are numerous open spaces in the city, where tourists can plan a picnic or just an evening stroll. The Stromovka Park is certainly worth a visit as are the local markets around Old Town Square. Here, tourists will be able to pick local crafts and even antiques. While most restaurants offer internationally favourite cuisine, such as Italian and Chinese, it would be a good idea to try out local delicacies such as goulash. The choice is simply too varied for tourists visiting the beautiful city of Prague.
