Prague, Czech Republic

The historic heart of Bohemia, Prague is a dreamy destination. Nicknamed the City of a Thousand Spires, its 1100-year-old skyline is made up of domed churches and soaring towers. Its UNESCO World Heritage Site tag is indicative of its jaw-dropping attractions such as Prague Castle, Charles Bridge, the Clementinum, Wenceslas Square, the Old Town and the Astronomical Clock among many other architectural gems. Culture connoisseurs should head to the old Jewish Quarter to step back in history, the National Theatre for top opera, ballet and drama performances, as well as Lennon Wall – a throwback to the days of communist rule.
