Who loves castles, cobblestones and romantic rowboat rides? Everyone, that’s who. From composers to authors and poets, Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, has inspired countless imaginations.
The composer Wagner called it “a city beyond compare” and author Franz Kafka said “Prague never lets you go”. Rent a car in Prague, and you’ll soon see why that’s definitely a good thing.
This city is packed with attractions—what’s a savvy traveller with a Prague car rental to do? We’ve got it: Climb to the top of Petrin Hill and get a good look at all that awaits you. Thanks to its hilltop location, the 63.5m Petrin Lookout Tower is even higher in elevation than the Eiffel Tower.
Now…we promised you castles, didn’t we? Prague Castle is just 1km from the north side of the park, so head on over. One of the world’s most-visited castles, it also has a claim to fame that’s rather unusual these days: the president actually lives there!
Oh yeah, it also has the pure-gold St. Wenceslas Crown, which is so valuable it’s protected by seven locks and seven different keyholders—and they all have to be there in order to open the safe.
By now, you’ve probably heard all about Gothic Karlstejn Castle. This 14th-century structure sits on a hill 30km southwest of the city—and your Prague car hire is the perfect way to get there. Prague Castle may have a famous crown, but Karlstejn looks like something out of a fairytale—and has a whole room covered in gemstones!
Can’t get enough castles? Take a quick, hour-long flight north and make Berlin accommodation your home base for exploring some of Germany’s best royal residences.
Come up with some poetic quotes of your own when you take a Prague holiday, and you’ll feel like a creative genius. Yes, the “City of a Thousand Spires” definitely has that effect on people.
