Tips from the community

This was once the largest Jewish ghetto in Europe, with a long complicated history fraught with massacre and destruction. There are a lot of important things to see, like the Jewish cemetery and the Spanish synagogue.

  • Prague’s best historical highlights

    travelfreak (Jeremy Foster)
    Unlike many other European cities, Prague escaped World War I and World War II relatively unscathed and undamaged from falling bombs and other destruction. The result is a nearly perfectly-preserved historic Old Town, and plenty of other still-standing neighborhoods around it. Castles, cathedrals, Gothic bridges, and even giant clocks are all part of the city’s far-reaching history, and so you’ll learn a thing or two while visiting these important landmarks. This list includes everything from ancient historical sites to medieval structures and slightly more modern pieces of noteworthy architecture, like sleek new buildings and even a graffiti wall where locals once aired their grievances.
