Swarms of tourists crowd the historical streets, packing out the alfresco restaurants every day. The square itself is the perfect place to admire the wonderful architecture Prague has to offer and if that isn’t your thing then the various street performers, musicians and merchants that line the streets here will certainly keep you entertained.

- Visit Prague Castle: Located in Hradcany (the Castle district), Prague Castle is without a doubt the city’s most popular tourist attraction and it is easy to see why. The breath-taking castle has traditionally been the seat of Czech rulers and is today the official residence of the president.
- Visit St. Vitus Cathedral: The St Vitus cathedral is one of the attractions located in the castle grounds. It is visible from all around the city of Prague. Although the cathedral looks many hundreds of years old, it was in fact completed in 1929. Many treasures await visitors including the tomb of St John of Nepomunk, the splendid Chapel of St Wenceslas and the magnificent art nouveau stained glass.
- Next explore The Old Jewish Ghetto: The Jewish quarter, also known as Josefov, is located between the Old Town and the Vltava River. Its history began in the 13th century when Jews living in Prague were ordered to vacate their homes and settle in this one area. The Jews were banned from living anywhere else in the city and were joined by fellow exiled Jews from other European countries. To add to their hardship, many buildings in the area were destroyed in the late 19th century when the cities layout was remodeled. Fortunately, many significant historical buildings remain including six synagogues and are well worth a visit.

Petra a Pavla v Brne) is hard to miss. Considered one of the most important Czech cultural monuments, this imposing Catholic cathedral remains one of the city's most important attractions due to its splendid architecture. Highlights include its exquisite Baroque interior, as well as the 84-meter-tall twin towers that were added at the start of the 20th century (the main part of the building dates from the mid-1700s).
- Next Visit the must do excursion, Moravian Karst and Caves: Famous for its cool air and stunning caverns, the Moravian Karst and Caves (Moravský kras) are a must-visit when in Brno. Located 25 kilometers northeast of Brno, the Karst area covers some 100 square kilometers and contains more than 1,000 known caves and gorges, five of which are open to the public for self-guided tours (trails are clearly marked indicating their level of difficulty).

- Overnight at the hotel in Bratislava.
- Breakfast at the Hotel.
- Pick up from the hotel for your full day tour.
- Visit Bratislava Castle: Watching over the city from its craggy roost, Bratislava Castle is on a site that has been fortified for thousands of years. As a defendable stronghold and lookout, the castle was unmatched as it rested between the Alps and Carpathians and defended an ancient ford on the Danube. The castle’s apogee came in the 16th century when it was the seat of the Kings of Royal Hungary, housing the Hungarian crown jewels for the next 200 years. After war damage and reconstruction it’s a landmark to see because of what it represents more than its architecture. From the terrace you can see over the Danube and across the borders into Austria and Hungary, while the interior has exhibitions for the National Museum, covering Slovakian history from the middle ages to the present day.
- Visit St. Martin’s Cathedral: On the west side of the Old Town, Bratislava’s 15th century Gothic cathedral was against the city walls and even had a secondary role as a bastion. It lies in the shadow of Bratislava Castle and from 1563 became the coronation church for the Kingdom of Hungary, so it makes for a handy one-two on a sightseeing trip. Eleven kings and queens, and eight of their consorts were crowned in this building up to 1830. The cathedral’s role as a coronation church is honored by a gold-plated reproduction of the Crown of St. Stephen at the top of the tower. Inside, the nave is in three aisles, divided by bulky Gothic columns and leading to an ensemble of statues portraying St Michael as a Hungarian hussar.
- Visit Old Town Hall: On Hlavné Námestie the Old Town Hall Bratislava most venerable landmarks. It came together in the 1200s when the Romanesque house belonging to the Mayor was acquired by the city. Slowly the neighboring buildings were also bought off and annexed. So now it’s an interesting muddle of four different houses and palaces full of little surprises. The most beautiful portion is the Renaissance courtyard, dating to 1581 and with an arcade and gallery.The main tower is older, designed in the Tuscan Gothic style in the 1200s, and housing a branch of the City Museum that deals with feudal justice in medieval Pressburg.
- Next you will see the Michael’s Gate: Another early structure in the Old Town is the last vestige of Bratislava’s original four medieval gates, protecting the east entrance to the city. Michael’s Gate climbs to 51 meters, over an elegant tangle of streets and dates to the very start of the 14th century. It took on its current Baroque appearance after a remodel in 1759. This was when the dome was installed, as well as the finial of St Michael fighting the dragon at the tip of the spire.In the tower there’s another branch of the Bratislava City Museum, with an exhibition about the old fortifications and medieval weaponry. Get up to the tower’s sixth floor, as this is a handy vantage point over the Old Town.
- Back to hotel and overnight stay in Bratislava.
- Breakfast at the Hotel.
- Pick up from the hotel for the tours, Visit Devin Castle: Do not pass up the chance to see this awesome castle, around 10 kilometers west of the city centre. Devin Castle is a ruin perched on a 212-metre cliff at the confluence of the Danube and Morava Rivers. In its heyday this mighty stronghold controlled the trade route on the Danube, as well as an arm of the ancient Amber Road. With traces going back to the 5th century BC, it’s one of Slovakia’s three oldest castles, and its story is told by information boards and an exhibition inside the caves in the upper enclosure. The castle’s death blow came with an assault by Napoleon’s troops in 1809, and it has been a scenic ruin ever since.
- Next travel back and reach Old town, Visit Primate’s Palace: Unlike Grassalkovich, the Primate’s Palace welcomes visitors. It was constructed in the 1770s in an imperious neoclassical style for the Archbishop of Esztergom, and up to 1996 was also the president’s residence. The high point of any tour is the Hall of Mirrors, a sequence of five salons, each named after the colour of its décor. A momentous event occurred in the Hall of Mirrors in December 1805 when the Treaty of Pressburg was signed, sealing Napoleon’s victory over the Third Coalition.There’s a set of 17th-century Mortlake tapestries on display, and in the inner courtyard is a magnificent fountain with a statue of St George slaying the dragon.
- Explore the Most SNP: Traversing the Danube is a spectacular relic from the Soviet period. The Most SNP (Bridge of the Slovak National Uprising) opened in 1972, and holds the record as the world’s longest cable-stayed bridge to have only one pylon and a single set of cables. At the top of that pylon is a structure known as the “UFO”. At 80 meters above the river this disc-like building houses a restaurant reached via an elevator up the pylon’s east pillar. Book a table for a meal with a memorable view, or just come to the observation deck to see the Danube, castle and old Bratislava in all their glory.
- Next visit Maximilian’s Fountain: Back in the Main Square is another of Bratislava’s most prized monuments and meeting places. Opposite the Old Town Hall is a fountain commissioned by the King of Hungary, Maximilian II in 1572 as a water supply for Pressburg’s citizens. The column in the middle is crested by a statue of the knight in battle armour. Some people believe this an image of Roland, the mythical defender of Pressburg’s rights, and others are certain it’s Maximilian himself. According to legend, every New Year at the stroke of midnight the statue turns to face the Old Town Hall and bows to honour 12 councilors who died defending the city.
- Get dropped at Eurovea: On the left bank of the Danube in the southeast of the city, Bratislava’s former industrial district has been totally revitalized. The symbol of this shiny new quarter is Eurovea, a large mixed-use development combining homes, shopping and entertainment. The first phase was completed in 2010, when the Eurovea Galleria Mall opened its doors, together with a casino, cinema, pool and gym. Anyone hankering for some big brand shopping will be pleased with the choice of mid-market and luxury names like H&M, Lacoste, Guess, Armani, Marks & Spencer, Adidas and Mango. In front of the development are lawns and a new promenade on the Danube.
