Welcome to Prague
Prague is one of the most beautiful and well-preserved cities in Europe.
Petrin Hill Observation Tower will provide the best view of this fairy tale city of red roofs, green copper domes, and spires.
The city’s Old Town Square is filled with palaces, baroque buildings, and the Gothic Týn Church. Marvel at the medieval Astronomical Clock as it strikes the hour with a 45 second animated show, then try the favorite sweet street food, Trdelník, and windowshop for a handcrafted wooden marionette.
Charles Bridge will take you across the Vltava River, which flows through the heart of the city. For pedestrians only and built in 1402, it is lined with statues of Catholic saints and supported by 16 arches. It’s also a perfect spot to watch the sunrise light up this City of a Hundred Spires.
Prague Castle resides on a hill beside the 600 year-old St. Vitus Cathedral, as well as the Strahov Monastery and Library. There is a whole castle complex to explore, including places like Golden Lane, lined with the colorful tiny homes of bygone guards and goldsmiths.
For something other than history, visit the Black Light Theater, indulge in a Beer Spa (where you both drink and soak in Czech beer!), or stop by the rooftop bar of the nouveau baroque Dancing House (nicknamed “Fred and Ginger” for its curving lines which evoke a couple dancing). Quieter moments can be spent strolling through Letná Park, sampling local delicacies at a farmers market, or simply watching the swans on the Vltava River.
When you visit Prague, be prepared to be immersed in architectural wonders and 1,000 years of history, and book a Prague photographer to capture you in this uniquely preserved place.
