Magnificent architecture, stunning views from almost every corner, and a rich pedigree of European history. Prague is a must-see destination...
Prague is the largest city of the Czech Republic. The capital is also known as the "city of a hundred spires", a reference to its many magnificent bohemian church buildings.
These impressive structures and their unique architecture are also a reason why the city is visited every year by many eager and passionate tourists. For these tourists, visiting this ancient city is a huge treat and there are so many things on offer, it's no wonder that many of these visitors opt for car rental in Prague as their best method of getting around the Czech capital.
Situated on the Vltava River, Prague has been at the forefront of politics, culture and the economy within the Czech state for more than 1,100 years, including many decades during the Gothic and Renaissance eras when Prague was home to two Holy Roman Emperors and therefore also capital of the empire.
Prague car rental companies can also offer information on the area, what to see and also the best roads to get around on so it's well worth keeping this in mind during your stay if you're ever in need of guidance.

Prague is famed for its theatres and museums, namely its National Museum, which houses many archaeological findings and theatre memorabilia from the 1930s. The building is also worth a visit in the evenings as it looks beautiful when illuminated by the surrounding lights.
Today, Prague city is home to more than 1.2 million people, while its outskirts are said to have a population of more than 1.9 million. Since 1992, Prague has been one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe after being included in the Unesco list of World Heritage Sites. The city receives more than 4.1 million international visitors annually.
Not all the great sights of this stunning region are in Prague city centre. A two-hour drive to the south-east will take you to the charming town of Blansko and the mesmerising Moravian Karst – a remarkable cave system formed from ancient bedrock with underground lakes and cathedral-like chambers.
Drive for an hour and half to the west of Prague and you could visit one of Bohemia’s famous spa towns. Karlovy Vary is the most famous, and you’ll be invited to take a jug of the restorative waters that have had health-conscious visitors flocking here for centuries.
One of the easiest attractions to drive to is Olomouc. It’s also simple to navigate around, so get the best from your car hire in Prague by making the trip to one of the best preserved Gothic towns in Europe (it can be reached in about two and a half hours).
