Exploring Prague

Prague Castle and Old Town Square are highlights of the Czech capital, but for a more insightful look at life two decades after the Velvet Revolution, head to local neighbourhoods around the centre. Working-class Žižkov and energetic Smíchov are crammed with pubs, while elegant, tree-lined Vinohrady features a diverse menu of cosmopolitan restaurants. Gritty Holešovice showcases many forms of art, from iconic works from the last century to more recent but equally challenging pieces.
