Prague is definitely one of the top contenders for my favourite European city. Having been to the city a few times I’m fascinated by central Prague and its maze of cobbled lanes, history and beautiful architecture. Just a matter of minutes from the Old Town Square you can witness some of the most beautiful buildings in Europe. From church domes, hidden courtyards, traditional bars and the sound of classical music somewhere nearby, Prague has heaps to offer every type of tourist. One of the lesser known things about Prague is its reputation as having some of the best spas in Europe. So sit back, relax and read about the best Prague has to offer.
