Modern meets traditional in grand old Prague

Whilst many European cities have gradually modernised and adapted a 21st century look, Prague excels at changing with the times whilst remaining classically beautiful. Strolling around town, you get a sense of Prague’s rich and troubled history, but the culture of old-meets-new cosmopolitan desires to embrace the weekend-away spirit. As for shopping, unearth beautiful craftsmanship and wonderful jewelry.

Stay.com Editors' Note

A relatively calming place, as far as cemeteries go, the New Jewish Cemetery (Nový zidovský hrbitov) is the final resting place of Franz Kafka. The famous author had a close relationship with Prague, which is often considered as being a major contribution to his novels, short stories and essays.

While not as popular or historically significant as the Old Jewish Cemetery, the New Jewish Cemetery (Nový zidovský hrbitov) holds a special place in the hearts of lovers of the arts and culture.
