Golden Well (U Zlate Studne)
We wonder how many marriage proposals have been made at Prague’s “most luxurious” and “most romantic” hotel. With Mercedes Benz S-Class limo airport transfers, champagne and roses, couples massages and dinner overlooking the most gorgeous city in the world, we’d say we do too!

Other things “to woo”
Love Locks Bridge
Along a small canal in Malá Strana (near the Lennon Wall), lovers can profess their eternal love by fixing a padlock along the bridge. Be forewarned, however, that from time to time, when there’s too much love and too little space, the city does cut the locks. To profess your love in a less locks-crowded location, head down along the river towards Náplavka to the rickety train bridge. In the middle of the bridge facing the castle, lock your love.
For an off-the-beaten path adventure, head to Prague 3 and up to Vítkov hill. See the Jan Zizka statue up close (it’s the largest equestrian statue in the world!), pack a bottle of wine, and watch the sunset with your sweetie.
Food, brews and views
They say the way to a man’s heart (or a woman’s heart, we’d argue!) is through his stomach… So why not show your love by treating your special someone to a Czech food tour through the City of 100 Spires? Or perhaps a beer tour that takes in the most romantic views across Prague?
