Spend a week embedded in the magic of Prague exploring the famous as well as out-of–the-way charms of this historic city with its countless spires, stone bridges and looming towers. Prague’s unparalleled artistic and musical heritage make it a must-see cultural capital. In this custom Smith itinerary, enjoy fascinating walking tours to learn about the castle district, the Jewish ghetto and the city’s Cold War history, while also discovering the city’s impressive theaters and music scene, much of which was influenced by Jewish artists that kept active despite Nazi oppression. Take daylong excursions to Terezín, a former 18th-century Austrian fortress that later became a concentration camp, and to Benešov, where you’ll explore the Konopištê Castle, the summer residence of Archduke Ferdinand. Also enjoy plenty of leisure time to wander, explore and amble through this inspiring city.
