Prague can be considered one of the cultural capitals in the world. It is a city of many museums, galleries, theatres, cin- emas and other cultural institutions. The pleasant spring experi- ences include a sightseeing cruise on the Vltava river or a trip to the Petrin Tower, which may remind you of the Eiffel tower. Walks through the Old Town may take you to the magical Jewish Quarter and you can enjoy your afternoon cup of coffee in one of many cafés. Prague also has the highest observation platform in the Czech Repub- lic. You can fi nd it at the 216-m high Žižkov Tower which also features a luxury restaurant overlooking the whole city. If you wish to bring any valuables from Prague, fi nd your way to an- tique shops for jewellery and precious stones or paintings and china. Art and design can be found at a host of exhibitions offered by the National Gallery at many places in Prague.
