Prague is located in the north / central part of the Czech Republic and the center of Europe, it's also known as "the heart of Europe".

Downtown Prague has fascinating architecture and art, making the city itself an attractive place to explore on foot.

The Astronomical Clock is undoubtedly the main attraction of the city, people gather in front of it to see its unique appearance and how it announces the change of hour.

Next to the Astronomical Clock is the Old Town Square, which is the main square of Prague where artists meet and you can appreciate the beauty of the old city.

Prague is a city that you can fall in love with, just by walking through its streets, but it also has several artistic expressions that you should look for all over the city.

Prague is a dream come true for us foodies. Since you wake up Prague has coffee shops that feature excellent coffee, hot chocolate and desserts or delicious cakes. My favorite coffees are Cafe Louvre that transports you to Paris, EMA Espresso Bar with the combination of a homey but modern place and Café Savoy with cheap and delicious breakfasts or exquisite and cuddly dishes.

For lunch or dinner there are different options, I will start with the place that has astonished me and not only me but anyone who visits Prague: Nase Maso, which is a first class butchery serving some dishes with beer and wine in its store. The meat tartare is a delicacy in this place and their burgers are perfection in meat.

The second place you should visit for an epic meal is U Medvidku which is a hotel and restaurant located in the oldest brewery in Prague. The most famous dish they have is the pork knee that looks like a medieval dish and they have the highest grade alcohol X33 with 33% alcohol.

And my favorite place away from the center is Little Hanoi or Sapa District which is a district inhabited mainly by Vietnamese and looks very similar to Hanoi. In this place you will find the best vietnamese food outside Vietnam. My recommendation is the crab soup and the pork with mushrooms in rice paper.

If you have a space for dessert, Angelato is a delight with several branches throughout the city.

The other specialty of Prague are the bars. One of the distinctive drinks of this city is the Absinthe that can contain between 60% and 70% of alcohol. My recommendation is to try it at Absintheria as they have great variety or in the best bar in Prague called Hemingway where it is served in a traditional way.

Another bar that I highly recommend is Anonymous Bar since it has themed around the secrecy to order incredible drinks.

There is also a red district on the sides of Wenseslao Square where there are several brothels and it will be common to see large groups of friends in bachelor parties from all over Europe.

I have to admit that many of us have fallen in the tourist traps that Prague has, but my biggest recommendation is that once you have toured the main attractions of Prague, experience as local one of the best cities in Europe and the world.

To finish I share a video in drone of the city and I hope that the next time you visit Prague consider to stay several days to really enjoy its wonders.
