The most popular tourist destination in Prague last year was traditionally Prague Castle with 2.3 million visitors, a 13 percent increase year-on-year.
The Petrín funicular with 2 million visitors came second and Prague Zoo was the third most popular tourist destination, according to data made available by Czech Tourism.
The city hall on Old Town Square saw a drop in the number of visitors, most likely due to renovation work on Prague’s famous Astronomical Clock.
