Gay Travel Prague
The beautiful city of Prague has been attracting increasing numbers of gay tourists every year now since the curtain finally fell on 41 years of Communist rule in 1989. The city, so grey and drab during that period, is now a riot of colour and its fabulous buildings have been brought back to life. Improvements in tourist infrastructure have also proceeded apace with restaurants and bars of every type and for every budget springing up regularly.
The city has 3 absolute ‘must-see’ sights: the legendary 1000 year old Prague Castle which looms above the city, Old Town Square and The Charles Bridge which spans the scenic and pleasant Vltava river. But these 3 attractions are just the tip of the iceberg; there are countless churches and scores of beautiful buildings of many different architectural styles. The two old towns, Mala Strana and Stare Mesto, teem with buildings of historical interest and the latter also features the best preserved Jewish quarter in Central Europe.
Prague is extremely easy to visit. It’s safe, most places are walkable and there is a cheap and reliable local transport network if you prefer to rest your legs. With the Czech crown now much stronger than it was, prices are not the bargain they once were, but you can still get some great value in local restaurants and pubs; beer for example is not much more than 1 euro for a half liter in many places.
