As one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe since the fall of the Communist government in l989, Prague offers a rich cultural, historical, and architectural experience. From the famous Charles Bridge, to Old Town to Mala Strana (where the Anglo-American University is located), every corner turned offers sites to savor. The city is pedestrian-friendly and walking from one destination to another is enjoyable and easy to do. For destinations too far to walk, the city offers a good and inexpensive tram system.
Entertainment abounds in Prague. Special days, festivals and public holidays are widely celebrated so visitors can observe and participate in these local traditions. Musical performances from classical to jazz to rock are frequent; there is also an International Music Festival (May/June) and a Mozart Festival (September). It is not uncommon to walk down the streets of Prague and be handed flyers for upcoming events and performances.
