'Obama Effect' Makes Prague Travel Viable

If you have a vacation budget for summer and you're looking for something new, consider the "Obama Effect" and head to Eastern Europe. According to recent reports, President Barack Obama's election has transformed more Europeans into enthusiastic supporters of the American way. A recent survey of 1,300 US people by TripAdvisor LLC had an impressive 44% of respondents answering that there is a more tolerant environment for Americans in Europe. Oh--and Prague was by far the best deal, they also claim.

If you are looking for savings on tour packages, deals, and local sightseeing, Prague is a great option. The capital and largest city of Czech Republic is the sixth most visited city in Europe, and is a great stop for architecture buffs looking to get a glimpse of Art Nouveau, Baroque, Cubist, Neo Classical, Renaissance, Gothic, and Modern styles sprinkled throughout old and new parts of the city. If you're partial to central locations, book your luxury hotel near the Old Town Square and Municipal House, like Prague's Hotel de Paris (which also has an Exclusive Complimentary Perks package) or the Mandarin Oriental Prague, which is near Prague Castle and the 14th-century Charles Bridge.

If you like more modern sites, try the Radisson Blu Alcron Hotel, which is near the famous boulevard, Wenceslas Square, in modern Prague, as well as quite close to historic sights. The La Rotonde Restaurant, one of the Radisson Blu Alcron Hotel's two restaurants, reached third place in a list of the top twenty restaurants in the city. The other restaurant, the Alcron, reached the number two spot on the list. Since your Exclusive Complimentary Perks include a buffet or a la carte breakfast for two, this is a foodie-friendly pick.

Prague offers plenty for the enthusiastic traveler, so take advantage of the "Obama Effect" this summer with your luxury hotel booking.
