Cultural Tourism | Travel to Prague

Prague is also known as the city of a hundred lights or the golden city. The streets of Prague take us on a scenario worthy of a fairy tale with magical spaces decorated with towers and a medieval atmosphere that will take you back in time. If you have chosen to visit Prague as a cultural destination the places that you should visit are listed below. For easier access it would be great if you could move around with a car. When I visited I thankfully was using travall. The National Museum is recognized as the leading museum in the Czech Republic. This museum boasts a neo Renaissance building from the beginning of construction in the late nineteenth century. In the museum’s galleries you will see permanent collections and exhibitions. Mineralogical and lithological Exhibitions, Paleontology, Zoology, Anthropology and Osteology. If traveling with children you can visit the section of Zoology which is complete and has interactive games.

The Museum of the City of Prague is the space where we can explore the history of the city from prehistoric times until the late seventeenth century. Excels in Langweil Model Museum are the most recreational with twenty square meters that show the distribution of streets, squares and buildings of Prague in the early nineteenth century. You should know that all these museums do not allow pets inside so it would be wise if you had some pet barriers in your car, if you’re traveling by car.
