Prague is the crown jewel of Europe. Its history goes back to ages and there is an old-world charm to it that is
not prevalent in any other city. And, more often than not people overlook Prague and settle down for other
stalwart destinations. But give Prague a try and you will surely fall in love with the city of cobblestoned
streets. Walk across one of the most attractive bridges of Karluv Most. Though overcrowded at times, the bridge
is a must visit. More inclined to places that thrive with activity? Then take a visit to the Old Town Square. It
is a great place to people watch and the air around is also filled with the essence of Prague. Listen to the
chimes of the Astronomical Clock. Go on a family outing to the Prague Zoo. And do chug in some beers. They are
cheaper in Prague.

How many times have you ever felt that a name perfectly suits a destination? Very rarely, I guess. But we have
this sense of satisfaction everytime we say Florence aloud. Because the name best reflects everything about the
city. There is elegance, renaissance, and extraordinary art. As the red-roofed city slowly unfurls, there is
also a sense of belonging. What else does Florence have? Start with a visit to the iconic Uffizi Gallery.
Regardless of you being an art enthusiast or not, Uffizi Gallery is a place you shouldn’t miss out. Climb the
276 stairs of the Duomo for the breathtaking views of the city. If this doesn’t satiate you, then get to the top
of Villa Bardini. It’s where you can stretch your legs while soaking in the views. For the best cultural
indulgence, get to the Piazza Della Signoria or the Piazzale Michelangelo. Also, most importantly rent a bicycle
and navigate the narrow streets of Florence.
