Top Ten Things to Do in Prague, Czech Republic

by Carla Pacheco - Prague, Czech Republic -

Prague has been a political, cultural and economic centre of central Europe with waxing and waning fortunes during its 1,100 year existence. Rooted deeply in Gothic and Renaissance style and culture, the city is home to a number of famous cultural attractions. In 1992, UNESCO named the extensive historic centre of Prague a World Heritage Site. It boasts more than 10 major museums in addition to many, many theatres, galleries, cinemas, and other historical exhibits. A modern public transportation system makes the city very accessible.

1. Visit a Jazz Club

Prague boasts a surprisingly vibrant jazz scene. One of the best clubs to check out is AghaRTA - the most popular jazz venue in the downtown area. A fun atmosphere, historic building, friendly drink prices, and a first rate local jazz band show. Need we say more?

2. Go to the Opera.
