Usually you groan when you’ve booked a layover, but not this time! When it comes to having a long layover in Prague, Czech Republic, start celebrating, because it’s the perfect excuse to explore the city. Say goodbye to hours in the terminal lounge and hello to exciting attractions in “The City of a Hundred Spires.”
When you visit this enchanting destination in the northwest region of the country, you’ll soon realize why its nickname mentions spires. Jutting out from the tops of cathedrals and church towers, spires dot the skyline, perhaps most vividly on the St. Vitus Cathedral at Prague Castle. Meanwhile, the Petrin Lookout Tower and the National Museum are other architecturally spectacular sights. Experience Prague in a day by visiting the Prague astronomical clock, which dates back to 1410. Then stroll across the scenic Charles Bridge that overlooks the Vltava, the longest river in Prague.
Whether you venture out for a glimpse of Prague’s magnificent architecture or simply to get a taste of the country’s famous dumplings, one day in Prague certainly beats sitting in the airport until your next flight. Even just 24 hours in Prague can give you a sense of this charming city in Europe.
