Groupon’s Guide To Prague
The capital city of the Czech Republic has played an important role in the history of Europe, while its unique character is derived from the city’s architecture mirroring in the River Vltava. Old and new intertwine in parks, grand palaces and church spires, while townhouses sit next to high-fashion shops, restaurants and bars.
Strolling through the winding alleyways with red slate rooftops and historic quarters of the Old Town district, just south of where the river bends beneath the Letenské Sady Park, travellers can discover a wealth of Czech restaurants, while a healthy choice of traditional watering holes grace the streets of the New Town. At the National Marionette Theatre, guests can catch a traditional puppet performance, while a trip to Prague Castle offers an aerial view of The City of a Thousand Spires. For more architectural wonders, visitors can pop down to the Baroque-styled St. Nicholas Church or see the Gothic Powder Tower, one of Prague’s most important medieval monuments.
