Prague everyone should visit at least once in your life. Prague is a city that is almost a living open-air museum of different architectural styles. You will see architectural styles ranging from Gothic, Romanesque art, Baroque through the nineteenth and twentieth century to the modern architecture. Prague’s unique architecture makes it one of the most attractive European capitals. In 1992 the historic center was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The best proof of the uniqueness of Prague are thousands of tourists who visit it every year. Prague has plenty of objects worth a visit – dozens of museums and galleries.
The most famous symbol of Prague, connecting Lesser Town and the Old Town, is the Charles Bridge. At the ends of the bridge rise beautiful towers – one of them is worth the climb to see that measuring over half a kilometer bridge is not simple. The bridge is usually full of people so it is worth a visit in the early morning or late evening. Both day and night views of it are great – the best idea is to walk across the bridge, both in daylight and after dark.
You definitely need to look into the Hradcany district, which is characterized by magnificent palaces, houses, and of course the Royal Castle (a castle grounds is the beautiful cathedral of St. Vitus, crowded unfortunately Golden Lane and interesting interiors). In the vicinity of Prague Castle is the Strahov Monastery – and his southern gate in my opinion, the best view in Prague – panorama of Prague Castle and the Lesser Town – a must see! The hidden treasure of the district is the Nowy Swiat street – not less beautiful than the Golden and much less crowded.
Places to visit in Prague is a lot. There is Mala Strana, Kampa, Petrin Hill, Old Town or Jozevof – Jewish Town. But let’s not forget about Prague as a city of gardens. This fact is rarely highlighted in the guide books and yet I think it neat hectares of greenery in the city center is a rarity and should talk about it.
When it comes to dining in Prague they are very popular knedlikim usually served with stew meat, or the art of meat with sauce. If you prefer something sweet, I recommend trdelník. You can buy it on almost every street in the city center. It is a traditional cake originating in Slovakia. Treldik is made of rolled dough, wrap around the stick, then grilled and sprinkled with sugar, nuts and cinnamon. Must try!
Getting to know the capital of the Czech Republic is not so easy – two or three days during the weekend may not be enough to see all the points of interest. However, even a one-day trip will make this medieval city will always remain in your memory! (You can save time and flight to Prague by booking flight here).
Be sure you visit them!
