8. Museum of Miniatures - a little-known sights of Prague
This Attractions Prague not as publicized as the other attractions, but, in my opinion, it is no less amazing than the others.On the museum tour guide told us, and we did not deny yourself the pleasure to visit this attraction. Museum of Miniatures very small situated on the territory of Stroganov monastery, located near the Prague Castle.The exhibits of the museum can not fail to impress.Here you can see not only the shoe a flea, but other miniatures.The smallest book in the world, listed in the Guinness Book of Records (the size of 0.9 * 0.9 mm.), A caravan of camels in the eye of the needle, grasshopper, playing the violin, small paintings of world famous artists and other amazing creations of Russian Siberian Anatoly Konenko.

9. Intoxicated sights of Prague
visit Prague and not to try the unique Czech beer?It is simply impossible!On the territory of Prague in addition to many bars and restaurants offering live beer world-famous brands, there private brewery , each of which has its own traditions and unique recipes for beer.Buy beer on tap at these breweries almost impossible.You can enjoy this divine drink alone in a cafe or restaurant at the brewery.To get to some of the brewery should be booked in advance.All travel agencies offer tours for beer.Take a guided tour, in my opinion - is unwise.Why organize a race of the brewery in one day?Hardly, so you can really enjoy and remember the different tastes of beer and even more so, to conclude which of them prefer.
If you are a lover of beer, or certainly want to try as many varieties of this drink, schedule yourself for one brewery per day, alternating those trips with excursions.In addition, when a private brewery, as a rule, there is a cafe in which you can combine with the beer tasting delicious lunch or dinner.Prices of meals in restaurants or cafes at a private brewery, about the same as in ordinary cafes.About locations breweries can be found in travel agencies or printed from the Internet beforehand.Here are some of the brewery, which I would recommend to visit: Brewery House;Brewer and restaurant U Fleků;Strahov Monastery Brewery;Pivovar U Medvídků;Pivovar u Bulovky;Novoměstský pivovar;Two cats.
10. Prague Zoo - the emotional attraction of Prague
Prague Zoo - this is one of the largest zoos in Europe.Animals live there in conditions as close to their natural habitat.This pleasant holiday destination for the whole family.Here you can see 530 species of animals, admire the beautiful natural landscape.After this at the zoo has a cable car, train, playgrounds cafes and restaurants.
Prague - fantastic city, in addition I described attractions in Prague there are many others that you will not tell in the form of one review article.
To experience the atmosphere of mysterious Prague advise necessarily to take a night tour - Mystical Prague.Generally, guides dress up in scary fairy-tale characters and carry you through those streets in which you are most likely not have strayed.During the tour you will hear not a legend and even meet a real ghost.
While in Prague, be sure to leave yourself one day without a tour - you will enjoy the usual walks in the "gingerbread" streets of this wonderful city of fairy tales, myths and legends.
And if you are not indifferent to the shopping, then I advise you to read the article: "Bargain in Prague."In Prague, you will definitely be something to do!
I wish you the romance and new experiences!
