Be a Romantic and Come to Prague on Lovers' Day

Prague may not be the first city you think of as a romantic city. Only insiders know that Prague is the only city in the world that has a special day for lovers. Come to Petrin Hill on May Day and kiss your love in front of the statue of the romantic poet Karel Macha and your mutual love will be eternal. Prague has something romantic for everyone from a Vltava River cruise to a Vintage Car Tour. Prague is made for lovers. Nothing is more romantic than strolling through narrow cobbled lanes in the Old Town (Stare Mesta) and Lesser Town (Mala Strana) districts before or walking uphill to the top of Petrin Hill. On moonlit nights the city looks magical from above. Prague is also the city famous for romantic dining. Huddle together in on the summer terrace of Petrinske Terasy, a romantic spot to ask your lover to marry you. If wine is your favorite love potion, settle yourself on the summer terrace of Vinice Altan surrounded by vineyards. Equally nice, but for beer drinkers, is Letna Open-air Beer Garden. If you have something to celebrate, Czech garnets are famous and the perfect gift for someone special.
