Together with Hradcany, Charles Bridge and Male Mesto, the Old Town of Prague is one of the iconic places in the city which is popular all around the world. The history of this part of the city dates back to the 9th century, the world-famous town hall was established in 1338 as the first one of its kind in Bohemia. Let's go together to the most famous places and hidden nooks.
The forest-park on the south-eastern edge of Prague, founded at the beginning of the 18th century as a part of the Milíčov Court, is perfect for a walk on a hot summer day. The paths take you to relaxation areas, a children's playground or ponds where people can swim. However, bathing dogs is prohibited.
In times when we can't go exploring other cultures, it may come in handy to look around. We realize that even in the past, people have had to deal with the pitfalls of diseases that have greatly affected the running of society. Evidence of this are the monuments expressing gratitude. One of these monuments, which we may have perceived in recent years only as meeting points, are the plague columns.
There is much interesting about the capital of the Czech Republic. There are many landmarks and historical streets. The history truly walked through the city. There is, however, another perspective from which you can see Prague. Vltava boat cruises are available all year round. On every cruise there is an interesting lecture on landmarks including information you perhaps haven’t heard before.
The most expensive street in the Czech Republic, with no doubts. You can guess it from reading signs on this avenue connecting Letna and lively Old Town Square.
A place of work or friendly meetings. A place you can do sports and a place with a magnificent view of Prague. This is Letna.
No matter what the current weather is, Kampa and Charles Bridge are still overflowed with tourists. Including the day when the temperature fell to minus 3 degrees and it was occasionally snowing. This place hidden under the Charles Bridge offers thousands of different views. Kampa is simply beautiful in every season of year.
Every time kids went to visit the National Museum, they felt it was a punishment. However, for them it was still a lesser evil then learning. One started to put things into a broader perspective after he/she matured, and started to understand analogies between the past and the future. Then he/she began to appreciate the hidden value of the National Museum. Until recently hid.
You can’t miss the church on Bílenecké Square in Prague Dolní Chabry. This small Romanesque building has a magic of its own and everyone who knows little bit about it is attracted to it like a magnet.
This square undoubtedly belongs to the most icons places that you can visit in Prague. If you have not yet gotten there, you will not regret it when you will decide to go there.
Every true tourist should visit Malostranske Square. It is a part of the King’s Road. The road kings used to get to the coronation ceremony.
Prague is the capital of the Czech Republic and its largest city. I was born there and I have been living there ever since. Prague covers the area of 496 square kilometers and there live more than 1,2 million people. Prague is considered one of the most beautiful cities in Europe.
This time we are not going to admire Prague's historical sights. Our goal is nature and the area surrounding Prokopske and Dalejske valleys.
Once we saw all that is around the tower we moved inside. We also took a glimpse at 10 huge sculptures of crawling babies (so-called Mimina Babies). These were fixed on the tower in the year 2000.
Our journey across Czech Republic’s popular as well as less frequented spots we move to Prague. One of her most distinctive sights is the Zizkov TV Tower.
Today we travel to medieval times to Buchlov Castle set on the hill of the same name. This monumental royal castle is close to the town of Buchlovice, Uherske Hradiste district. The town is known also for the baroque chateau of Buchlovice with its vast park.
Jewish quarter should be a mandatory stop for tourists as well as for locals. Many Praguers pass it with their eyes closed forgetting, perhaps even realizing it, about priceless historic part of the city.
Few weeks ago we have visited the capital of the Czech Republic, Prague. During our walks in streets of hundred towers, visits to various museums and landmarks or tasting good wine we decided to visit a water world. It’s a relative new sight in the beautiful metropolis.
In Jerusalem street, an inconspicuous street from Jindrisska tower in Prague, is hiding a gem among Prague's buildings - the Jerusalem or als the Jubilee Synagogue. Witnesses may know it as the Great Synagogue.
