Prague is considered by many to one of the most romantic cities in the world, with images of streetlights reflecting brightly in the Vltava River springing instantly to mind. This air of romance has inspired many of the world’s greatest musicians and artists to visit and even stay here, such as Mozart, Beethoven and Dvorak. Even today a number of culture vultures are can still be found descending on the city, to paint, take photographs and generally soak up the atmosphere.
Due to the fact that Prague has been such a hotspot for these kinds of pursuits for so long, a cultured and vibrant city has sprung up, with a massive amount of citizens counting trips to the theatre and art galleries as an example of a great day out. Concerts and other performances are also incredibly popular and the tickets are cheap, due to the fact that prices are restricted so as to allow people from all walks of life the opportunity to enjoy them.
Prague isn’t just about theatre and culture though – there are some more hedonistic experiences available as well! The Czech Republic is one of the world’s largest producers of beers – and one of the world’s largest consumers – and most locals can be found swigging a few pints at least a couple of times every week. There are a number of different bars and clubs to enjoy this beverage, ranging from cool jazz clubs through to traditional Czech watering holes.
