Making for one of the most popular city break destinations in Europe, with Prague's dazzling appearance, it's often easy to forget the city's past behind the Iron Curtain. Today, the city is a combination of glitzy fashion shops and shiny office buildings combined with the charming cobbled lanes and distinctive Baroque architecture of the Old Town. You'll find it impossible to spend time in Prague without taking in the city's history, whether you visit the unmissable landmarks of Prague Castle and St Vitus Cathedral, the medieval Stare Mesto district or the Old Jewish Cemetery and the Jewish Museum, both celebrations of the city's former cultural and ethnic diversity. The lively and modern side of the city can be best seen at Naplavka, a riverbank district lined with world music performances, trendy pop-up bars and farmers markets which attract large crowds. Besides the variety examples of stunning architecture on offer, visitors will also be spoilt for choice when it comes to museums and art galleries.
