Montmartre is one of the most beautiful parts of Paris, and arguably the best one to explore with so many things to do in Montmartre. Sitting on the highest hill in Paris, it was originally a separate village known for its many vineyards and windmills. In 1860, it was annexed to the French capital as part of the 18th arrondissement, and it quickly became the bohemian quarter of the city. There was no other place in Paris quite like Montmartre, and many cabaret performers and artists became associated with it (Picasso, Toulouse-Lautrec and Van Gogh, to name a few).
You can still feel the charming village atmosphere of Montmartre today. With old Parisian houses covered in ivy, cobbled streets, a stunning white domed Basilica and cafés left, right and centre, Montmartre is certainly a must-see location in Paris. Here are our favourite things to do in Montmartre.

With a strategic location overseeing the city of Prague and the Vltava, Prague Castle (Pražský Hrad) is not only the biggest castle in the world but also the most important landmark in the Czech Republic. Now a UNESCO World Heritage site, the grounds of Prague Castle are home to significant historical buildings connected by picturesque squares and alleys. Its origins are linked to Prince Bořivoj in the 880s and historically served as residence to the Kings of Bohemia. In 1918, Prague Castle became established as the official residence of the President of the Czech Republic.
Over the years, the castle and grounds have undergone several changes and expansions, creating a walled architectural complex containing buildings of all kinds. The grounds are home to religious including St. Vitus Cathedral and government buildings including The Old Royal Palace to exhibition halls, museums and antique shops.
