straight slope to Prague Castle.
Though crowded, the castle is a
city highlight everyone should
see, especially Saint Vitus Cathedral, where Czech kings and
queens were crowned for seven
centuries. The church houses
the Bohemian crown jewels,
locked away in a special chamber accessed via the amethyst-,
jasper-, and gold-bedecked
chapel of Saint Wenceslas, the

spiritual founder of the Czech
state. Don't leave without
climbing the bell tower, a workout that rewards with one of
the city's best views.
From the castle, follow Novy
Svet, a peaceful cobblestoned
street that winds through an
almost perfectly preserved
eighteenth-century neighborhood, where cannonballs from
the Prussian siege of 1757 are

still lodged in several buildings. This roundabout route a
few blocks off the tourist track
leads to the district's other
highlight, Strahov Monastery,
home to a Catholic order since
1140. Strahov's library remains
its star attraction, with ornate
frescoed and stucco ceilings
and rooms connected by an
antique cabinet of curiosities -
stuffed dodo bird included.

PRIZED PINT Praying isn't
the only thing the Strahov
Monastery's residents
do - they've also brewed
beer since the fourteenth
century. Sample one of ten
refreshing options at the
historic on-site brewery.

TOP TABLE Art & Food
Had serves dishes such
as venison with parsnips,
chestnuts, black trumpet
mushrooms, and juniper
sauce in a dining room
decorated with Czech artist Michal Singer's fauvist
paintings. art-food.cz.
SOUVENIR FIND Prague has
a rich tradition of puppetry,
and Marionety Truhlar's
handcarved pieces are both
toys and works of art. Send
a photo ahead, and they'll
craft a spitting image of it.

ART WALK Exhibits at
the riverfront Museum
Kampa range from the
work of contemporary
Czech artists to the shoes
and designs of fashion
icon Manolo Blahnik.

HIDDEN GEM Discover the
Magical Cavern, artist
Reon Argondian's home and
studio in a repurposed mill
halfway up Petrin Hill. His
fantasy world is a psychedelic vision of buxom paintings, gargoyle sculptures,
and vividly colored faux
stone. reon.cz.
