Should Prague be on your Europe Trip Itinerary? Discover the Czech Capital and Surroundings
The worth of any travel destination can only be judged by the individual traveller. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder as they say and travel destinations fit this timeless adage.
What is intriguing, worth paying for and worth spending time on is different for different people. So what is Prague all about and what sort of travelers will enjoy this city that is growing in popularity as a must-see stop on Europe trips?
Hiking, biking and rock climbing are not likely the first activities that come to mind upon mentioning Prague. However, there are large park areas in and around Prague that will satisfy active travelers and get you out of the urban landscape and surrounded by nature.
Very close, just on the outskirts of the city, is Divoká Šárka where rock faces shape the landscape and provide a playground for climbers. A bit further from the city, to the north close to the Polish border, another outdoor destination calls, Český ráj. More on these destinations in our Prague magazine issue!
Many travelers hit Prague as a party destination. Boat parties, pub crawls and night clubs attract travelers making their way around Europe and stag party groups alike.
Decent prices and the easy going atmosphere are main factors making the city a night life destination. Safety is one thing to keep on your mind however, as there are certain scams in place to rope in unsuspecting tourists. Learn more about what to watch out for to ensure you’ll walk away with great memories – and with all of your belongings.
