This cruise has it all — historic sites, charming towns, world-class wine and cuisine and more! Arrive in Prague and transfer to your hotel. The rest of the day is free for you to start exploring this beautiful city.
Prague and the Czech Republic have earned a generally accurate reputation of being more liberal than its neighbours to the east like Poland or the Baltic States, and Czechs' attitudes towards issues like gay rights or drugs are far more tolerant. The biggest example of the Czech Republic's progressive policies towards the homosexual community would be its passing of historic legislation legalizing registered partnerships for same-sex couples in July This means that Prague has far more gay and gay-friendly clubs than most Eastern European cities, and is quickly becoming a popular travel destination for gay tourists.
The beautiful capital of the Czech Republic, located on the Vltava River, has become a popular city-trip destination recently. Here you can admire the unique architecture of the millennial history of the city and quickly get lost in the romantic streets of the old town. The world-famous Charles Bridge with its statues of Catholic saints is one of Europe's top attractions and lures visitors from all over the world.
Prague, picturesquely situated on the Vltava River, is the capital of the Czech Republic. This period saw the establishment of the first university in Central Europe, the laying of the foundation stone for the St. For centuries, Prague has been a melting pot for Czech, German and Jewish culture. Today's cityscape is dominated by buildings from all major periods of art history: Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, Art Nouveau, and even Cubism, which uniquely found its way also into architecture only here.
One of the consistent features of the gay rights movement over the past five decades has been a belief in progress: Members of the gay community and their allies have insisted that, over time, attitudes about homosexuality will only change for the better. In part, this conviction is based on the power of moral suasion, but it also relies on sheer demographics: Younger people tend to be more supportive of gay rights. In some countries, like Norway and New Zealand, the increase in approval was dramatic.
Prague is a very safe city but still, all travelers should take caution crowded areas or at night in bars with valuables. In Prague, you would be hard-pressed to find an upscale hotel which had any issues with gay guests but discretion is advised in small, owner-operated hotels in this still sometimes conservative society. Each hotel and area offer something very specific, so be sure to choose the right style and location to meet your needs.
I love it. Each European country has its own charms and quirks, and each city its own culture and life. Since then, the world has seen one of the fastest civil rights movements take place with countries enacting similar progressive laws everywhere from the Americas to Europe and, yes, in Africa and Asia, too.
Czech law bans discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. The Czech Republic is regarded as one of the most tolerant Central European and former Eastern Bloc nations with regard to homosexuality and same-sex marriage. Opinion polls have found increasing levels of support for same-sex marriage.
