Prague, home to 1.3 million and some of Europe's most dazzling architecture offers a rich cultural life, featuring festivals, concerts, and cultural programs. Cobblestone streets, bridges, and a castle overlooking dozens of churches, squares, and green spaces all contribute to the "City of a Hundred Spires" being recognized as one of the world's most beautiful cities.
