Czech writer Rainer Maria Rilke described his home city as an "epic poem of architecture". Yet, the baroque Prague pulsates with a cultural and nightlife life that has nothing to envy the one in Berlin or Vienna. All with a romantic twist.

In the heart of Bohemia, Prague's history resonates strongly with that of Europe and democracy. Capital of the Czech Empire under Charles IV in the 14th century, Prague was a leading cultural and religious center. It maintained this status until the end of the 17th century, and its rich artistic past - pictorial, sculptural, literary and architectural - bears witness to this. When Czechoslovakia was founded in 1918, Prague became its capital. In 1968, under the Communist regime, Prague saw the emergence of an attempt at "socialism with a human face" through the Prague Spring. Crushed by Warsaw Pact troops, this abortive initiative did not prevent the inhabitants from leading the Velvet Revolution in 1989. Since then, the free city has gone from strength to strength. In 1992, it was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its remarkable architecture, the "epic poem of architecture" described by the Czech poet Rilke. He would have been amazed to see that Renaissance, Gothic, Baroque and Art Nouveau buildings would soon be rubbing shoulders with Cubist and contemporary works, such as Frank Gehry's famous ‘Dancing House’. Art, architecture and history lovers will never be disappointed in Prague. If you're more into gastronomy, Czech cuisine is largely inspired by Italian cuisine, with the added bonus of excellent local wines and probably the best beer in Europe. To soak it all, you'll also want to try a few bramboraks, potato pancakes with garlic and marjoram that melt in your soul. At All Saints' Day, the cemeteries are decked out, as in Mexico, with a multitude of flowers and candles. Milan Kundera, a Czech writer, describes this phenomenon in The Unbearable Lightness of Being: "In the evening, the cemetery is full of small lit candles, you'd think the dead were giving a childish ball. Those country cemeteries against the blue backdrop of the hills were as beautiful as a lullaby”. In winter, when the 100 church towers are covered in snow, Prague is the very definition of Christmas magic. All the more reason to brave the cold and visit out of season!

Day 1 - The Old Town and the Josefov Jewish Quarter

Start at Old Town Square on the dot, to see the famous parade of the Apostles of the Astrological Clock. Enter the Grand Hotel Praha at number 22 and go up to the 1st floor where Café Mozart awaits you. For a coffee, you’ll have a bird’s eye view of the clock, without the crowds.

Wander through the narrow streets of the Old Town, such as the alleys around Notre-Dame-du-Týn and the passages leading to Rue Karlova (which you should avoid, as it’s a tourist trap).

Then visit the charming Old Jewish Quarter, with its synagogues and cemeteries. Make sure you go on a Friday, Sunday or Monday, as Saturday is the Sabbath.

Then take the art nouveau Čech bridge to Letná Hill. It’s a perfect spot to admire the sunset before having dinner on the banks of the Vltava.

Day 2 - Prague's New Town & Malá Strana

Especially if it’s Saturday or Sunday, spend more time in the New Town than in the Old Town.

St Wenceslas Square, with its monumental equestrian statue and art nouveau facades, is well worth a visit. Look out for the three tributes to Jan Palach, a student who set himself on fire in 1969 after the Soviets invaded to suppress the Prague Spring. They are in front of the forecourt of the National Museum, in front of its annex and below the statue of St Wenceslas. Pass through the basement bunker of the unusual Hotel Jalta.

Continue through the Lucerna, Světozor and Adria passages. Meet up in front of the National Theatre, behind which you can hire a pedalo on sunny days to see the island of Žofín.

Pass through Kampa Park to see the John Lennon Wall.

Dine at Café Imperial in a dream setting, if you have taken the time to make a reservation.

In the evening, Charles Bridge is emptied of tourists, as is the Old Town, which is a wonderful place to stroll around.

Day 3 - Life in a castle

On this final day, we climb up to Prague Castle. You can visit the castle (St Vitus Cathedral, Vladislav Hall or Golden Lane). Then it’s off to Vinohrady, the chic, bohemian district that epitomises Prague’s ambience.

In the afternoon, stroll through Riegrovy sady park, which offers an incredible view of the Castle you visited earlier, and admire the pastel facades of Chopinova street.
