Often described as a Fairy-tale City, Prague is the captivating capital of Czech Republic, home to beautifully preserved historical sites and fabulous architecture. There are so many wonderful places to visit in Prague, full of culture and history.
Central Prague lies in a bend of the Vltava River, which separates the medieval castle district of the city and the “Little Quarter” on the west bank from the old and new town on the east bank. Connecting the two banks is the Charles Bridge, a 520m long magnificent construction lined with statues. The best time to appreciate the beauty of the bridge is at dawn or late night, when the bridge is less busy and the silhouettes of the statues hover in the skyline like ghosts, making atmospheric photo opportunities.
There are a variety of historical places of interest to visit in Prague, and Prague Castle should definitely be top of the to do list! The castle is called Hrad by the locals and has been dominating Prague’s skyline since the 9th century, listed by Guiness world records as the world’s largest ancient castle. You can witness the changing of the guards ceremony every hour from 5am to 11pm. Another great place to visit is the Old Town Square – the centre piece of the city and home to the famous 600 year old Astronomical Clock. To admire the panoramic views of the stunning buildings and gothic spires, you can climb to the top of the Old Town Hall.
There are many great places to eat in Prague, one of which is the Medieval Tavern – a historic restaurant in the Old Town. It lays on the finest medieval feast in Prague with entertainment, good quality hearty food and drinks. Of course you will have to visit a pub or two to sample Praque’s finest beer, after a long day exploring this spectacular city.
