Prague lures millions of tourists each year with its World Heritage-listed medieval city center--a labyrinth of narrow lanes, bridges, cathedrals, and palaces overlooked by a thousand-year-old castle.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Lobkowicz Palace and Jewish Museum in Prague. Prague Castle and St. Vitus Cathedral will appeal to history buffs. Change things up with a short trip to Pilsner Urquell Brewery in Pilsen (about 1h 10 min away). There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Prague Astronomical Clock, pause for some serene contemplation at St Cyril and St Methodius Cathedral, sample some tasty brews at White Umbrella Tours, and take an in-depth tour of KGB Museum.
