Prague, the mother of cities

For us, this was a very special trip, since Prague was the first place we visited as a couple. It was early 2016 and for a new start, we could not choose a better place. Prague is a fairytale city, taken out of our children’s dreams. It has so many things to do and see that you will never get bored.

The popularity of Prague as one of the most popular tourist destinations does not show signs of decline. The cost of living and its choices (history, architecture, entertainment, etc.) make it particularly attractive. Our trip there lasted a week and we can find over 10 reasons for you to visit it. We will recommend things to you and all you have to do is arrange to go!

Our stay

Prague knows to take care of its guests. There are plenty of hotels, B&Bs, apartments, and botels. For our stay, we have chosen the Corinthia Hotel, one of the best we have stayed until today. It is next to the metro so we have saved valuable time and walking! This particular hotel although luxurious is also an economical choice. If you are proactive, you book early to save enough money.
