All we hear about this place are favorable opinions. Charming, intriguing and full of interesting attractions – these are only a few of many ways to describe it. That is why Prague is visited by so many tourist on a day-to-day basis. We would like to introduce you to the most interesting destinations to go to.
Definitely one of our favorite places to go to. A medieval bridge, which got its name out of its founder – before that it was called Stone Bridge. It is 516 meters long and stands on 15 pillars. It connects two parts of Prague – Little Side and Old Town. During a walk we can admire the beauty of statues on the bridge, such as the statuary of John of Nepomuk. Admission is free, hence no wonder it is so popular.
Perfect for tourists, who are not afraid of a little bit of exercise. There is a possibility of getting there on the funicular, but then you lose an incredible opportunity of looking at beautiful gardens, which are located on the route up the hill. On the top awaits a lookout tower inspired by the Eiffel Tower and Luster Labyrinth.
It is a go-to place for all The Beatles fans. Since 1980s it has been filled with John Lennon-inspired graffiti and designs as well as parts of lyrics from the band’s songs. During all these years it has been painted and then repainted multiple times by political institutions or dissatisfied residents and inspired Lennon fans who did not like the changes.
The Castle District was founded in the 14th century. In the past it was an independent borough. Within its territory there is Prague Castle, Golden Lane, St. George's Basilica and many other beautiful monuments. Most of them we can see without admission – however it may include not having an opportunity to see all those places from the inside.
An avant-garde and romantic region of Prague was initially inhabited by the working-class. Being in this area we highly suggest you go and see the Žižkov Television Tower – the view from the top is truly breathtaking. By many it is compared to Praga – a district of Warsaw, Poland.
It is a Roman Catholic, wax-coated, wooden statue of Jesus Christ holding a globus cruciger located in the heart of the city – Mala Strana. It is a highly visited place by all Catholics, who go here to say a prayer. They believe that it has powers to give favors to those who pray to it.
Every major European city has a part filled with beautiful, historical streets and buildings. Prague does not stay behind. Wonderful architecture and interesting restaurants are two major reasons why you should definitely go and visit this part of the town.
Whilst you are nearby the Old Town Square spare some time to see the Old Town Hall where you can see a real spectacle of a mechanical clock marking the hour. It is said to be one of the best preserved, medieval mechanical clocks in the whole world – it would be a real shame not to see this!
