Nicknamed “the City of a Hundred Spires,” Prague is known for its Old Town Square which is at the heart of its historic core. The city is lined with colorful baroque buildings, Gothic churches and is home to the largest castle in the world.
Dating back to the ninth century, the Prague Castle spans an impressive 18 acres and is home to stunning cathedrals, chapels, royal palaces and gorgeous ornamental gardens.
Two famous attractions you’ll find in Prague include a graffiti wall devoted to John Lennon and the famous Astronomical Clock on the Old Town Square.
Hello everybody, I am sending you my best wishes from Prague, my home for more than 20 years. I received my Masters degree from Palackého University in Olomouc, Czech Republic and before joining AIFS in 2014 I worked for the Open Media Institute in Prague, the partner organization of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, making local arrangements for BBC film crews and for journalists based in Prague.
My experience of living in different parts of the Czech Republic means I am a great resource for you when you are in Prague. You will find me in the AIFS office, right in the center of the city, a short walk from the university classroom buildings and the main attractions of this most beautiful city.
