Prague
Prague lures millions of tourists each year with its World Heritage-listed medieval city center--a labyrinth of narrow lanes, bridges, cathedrals, and palaces overlooked by a thousand-year-old castle.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Spas and Spanish Synagogue. There's still lots to do: take in the views from Charles Bridge, admire the landmark architecture of Kostel sv. Mikuláše, step into the grandiose world of Prague Castle, and wander the streets of Hradcany.
