Prague: 30 Years in UNESCO
This year marks the 30th anniversary of the inscription of the Prague historical centre in the UNESCO Word Heritage List. The towns of Český Krumlov and Telč also made it to the list together with Prague. Come celebrate with us.

Where You Feel the Touch of History

Prague is not only the Charles Bridge, Prague Castle or the Old Town Square with the astronomical clock. It holds other treasures waiting to be discovered! For example, St. Nicholas Church in Lesser Town with an organ that Mozart used to play. The nearby Prague Jewish Town is one of the best preserved Jewish landmarks in Europe. You can see the oldest synagogue there, still used to this day. Feel the touch of history in the recently reconstructed National Museum. And when you get tired of all the city’s hustle and bustle, have a rest in the Baroque Vrtba gardens. They are allegedly the most beautiful gardens north of the Alps and they offer a beautiful view of Prague.

What To See to Experience Something Extra

You can have a wonderful time even in such a frequently visited city as Prague is. Climb to the scenic vista with a vineyard by the Strahov Monastery – supposedly the most beautiful vista in Prague. You can enjoy some peace and quiet, take a few beautiful photos and refresh yourself with some craft beer from the monastery brewery. Wander through the nearby alleyways of the New World, a district with tiny homes and a romantic ambience. Or visit Klementinum in the centre of the Old Town where the National Library resides. The historical hall of the library, included in the tour, is one of the most spectacular library halls in Europe! Cool down on a hot summer day in the Stromovka Park, one of the largest parks in Prague, whether near the ponds or in the recently opened Šlechtovka Restaurant. If you are an art lover, you must visit one of the modern art galleries: either DOX in Holešovice or the new Kunsthalle gallery in Lesser Town.

The Length and Breadth of Czechia with UNESCO

A total of 16 historical landmarks have been inscribed in the UNESCO Cultural Heritage List in the past thirty years. The list includes the historical gardens in Kroměříž, a village with folk houses, as well as the stunning cathedral in Kutná Hora. It is only up to you to choose what experience you want to remember!
