Prague Cas­tle

“Prague Cas­tle [is] an an­cient sym­bol of the Czech State, the most sig­nif­i­cant Czech mon­u­ment and one of the most im­por­tant cul­tural in­sti­tu­tions in the Czech Repub­lic. It is a UNESCO mon­u­ment with a tra­di­tion of more than 1,000 years; a text­book of ar­chi­tec­ture and art his­tory; and a des­ti­na­tion for vis­i­tors from all over the world.” - Prague Cas­tle for vis­i­tors

Old Town Square

“Where does the true heart of Prague beat? On the Old Town Square of course! It is pre­cisely here that wind­ing lanes of the Old Town run, in or­der to spill out onto the most beau­ti­ful square in Prague. The el­e­gant tower of the Town Hall with the world fa­mous as­tro­nom­i­cal clock, the proud sil­hou­ette of the fairy­tale Týn Cathe­dral, the mon­u­men­tal Church of St. Ni­cholas and count­less mul­ti­coloured houses of many styles lend this place a unique at­mos­phere, which will cap­ti­vate all those who de­cide to take a look at its charm.” - Czech Tourism

Charles Bridge

“Charles Bridge is a stone Gothic bridge that con­nects the Old Town and Lesser Town (Malá Strana)... Its con­struc­tion was com­mis­sioned by Czech king and Holy Ro­man Em­peror Charles

IV and be­gan in 1357. There is a tower stand­ing on each end of the bridge. Both the Staroměst­ská věž on the Old Town end and the Malostran­ská věž on the Malá Strana end can be climbed for a view of Prague and the bridge from above.” - My Czech Repub­lic

St Vi­tus Cathe­dral

St. Vi­tus Cathe­dral is the largest and the most im­por­tant tem­ple in Prague. Apart from re­li­gious ser­vices, coro­na­tions of Czech Kings and Queens also took place here. The cathe­dral is a place of burial of sev­eral pa­tron saints, sov­er­eigns, no­ble­men and arch­bish­ops. - Prague Cas­tle for vis­i­tors

Mu­nic­i­pal House

Restored in the 1990s af­ter decades of ne­glect, Prague’s most ex­u­ber­antly art-nou­veau build­ing is a labour of love, ev­ery de­tail of its de­sign and dec­o­ra­tion care­fully con­sid­ered, ev­ery paint­ing and sculp­ture loaded with sym­bol­ism. The restau­rant and cafe here are like walk-in mu­se­ums of art-nou­veau de­sign, while up­stairs there are half a dozen sump­tu­ously dec­o­rated halls that you can visit by guided tour.

Church of Our Lady Be­fore Týn

“Its dis­tinc­tive twin Gothic spires make the Týn Church an un­mis­tak­able Old Town land­mark. Like some­thing out of a 15th­cen­tury – and prob­a­bly slightly cruel – fairy tale, they loom over Old Town Square, dec­o­rated with a golden image of the Vir­gin Mary made in the 1620s from the melted-down Hus­site chal­ice that pre­vi­ously adorned the church.” - Lonely Planet
