About Prague

The ancient and romantic city of Prague is the capital city of the Czech Republic. The whole city has been listed as a World Heritage Site. It is known as the "City of a Thousand Spires" and an "Open Air Museum". With stone-paved roads, it feels as though this is a city where time stands still. The scenery remains practically unchanged from hundreds of years ago. This is a place full of music, art and literature. The city is suffused with a strong literary atmosphere. Friedrich Nietzsche said, "When I sought for a word to express music, I found Vienna; when I sought for a word to express mystery, only Prague came to my mind." Johann Wolfgang von Goethe said "Prague is the prettiest gem in the stone crown of the world...". This is the birthplace of Franz Kafka and where Milan Kundera wrote “The Unbearable Lightness of Being”.

Popular Attractions in Prague

Old Town Square
4.6/5
868 Reviews
Square
Built around 900 years ago, Old Town Square in Prague is located between Wenceslas Square and Charles Bridge in the heart of the city. The architecture surrounding the square is diverse, ranging from the Gothic Church of Our Lady before Tyn to the Baroque St. Nicholas Church. The astronomical clock on the outer wall of the Old Town Hall is a highlight of the square. It chimes every hour, at which point the window above the clock face opens, bells toll and 12 miniature figures appear one by one and bow to the audience.
Charles Bridge
4.6/5
1,068 Reviews
Bridge
Charles Bridge is one of 18 bridges built in Prague over the Vltava River. It connects Old Town with smaller villages in Prague. It was also the path of the coronation parades for Czech royalty. The bridge is a sort of an open art palace, with an avenue of 30 baroque statues and statuaries. The statues were constructed by Bohemian masters between 1683 and 1714, but were replaced by replicas and are preserved in the National Museum. It is often said that one has not truly seen Prague until they have visited the bridge.
Prague Castle
4.5/5
798 Reviews
Castle
Originally built in the 9th century, Prague Castle has historically been the residence and seat of power for Bohemian kings, Roman emperors and past presidents of Czechosolvakia. It is now the office of the President of the Czech Republic. Prague Castle is actually a complex of several churches, palaces and courtyards, spanning an area of seven football fields. The castle district is home to Prague’s famous St. Vitus Cathedral, the Old Royal Palace and the Golden Lane.
Prague Astronomical Clock
4.6/5
571 Reviews
Historical Architecture
The Prague Astronomical Clock is a medieval astronomical clock installed on the south wall of the Old Town Hall in Prague's Old Town Square. Not only has it become a popular tourist attraction, but it is also a popular spot for locals to take wedding photos. This clock is divided into two upper and lower parts, exquisite and unique and quite ancient, but unfortunately because of the spread of World War II war, the bells that visitors can see now are mainly repaired after the war. After thousands of years, this big clock is still accurate and the locals often stop here for proofreading time.

Winter vacations can be a challenge: you have to decide on the trade-off between style and being sufficiently warm (really hard to have both), your sufficiently warm outfits have to fit into your suitcase and because you don’t to make the most of your time in a new country, you have to be prepared for early morning and long days in spite of the blistering cold. Fortunately, November is a kind month for winter travel. We did carry around an extra coat much to my annoyance because I typically insist on touring light. But it wasn’t so bad. Prague! It’s everything you imagine it to be and exactly as depicted in your Instagram feed. This, as many of you know, is a rarity because filters and good angles are largely to credit for awesome vacation pics! Prague was backdrop after backdrop for the avid poser and all-round photography fanatic. The city is rather compact so commuting is easy and short. One in the center, you’re a couple of blocks or tram stops away from the next landmark and the streets are filled with nibbles like grilled sausage and doughnut cones to keep you entertained as you marvel at its spectacular Gothic and Renaissance architectural gems. Beer-batter pork with mash and hearty stews can be enjoyed all around town and pubs seemed to be busy around the clock. Give you feet a reboot by stopping for coffee and cake (and maybe charge your camera?) at one of the many cafes in Old Town. We had afternoon tea and lunch at Ginger & Fred in the Dancing House building and some fine dining options also close to the city center, which cost a fraction of what you’d pay in bigger cities. #happynewyear

It turns out that there is no wishing pool in the square of Prague. The most famous scenic spot in the old town is the Old Town Square. It is the main square in Prague. It is crowded during the day or midnight. In the old days, Prague Old Town Square was the "CBD" of the year. It is a collection of medieval buildings, including the famous Entai Church, the exquisite astronomical clock and the Old Town City Hall all gathered in the square. A lot of people first met the old town square because of the famous "Prague Square" that Jolin Tsai sang. Later, Jay Chou took a wedding photo and chose Prague. In that he once wrote for the old love Jolin Tsai. The next song of Prague Square. 10 years ago, you wrote the love song for her; 10 years later, you took the other person's hand and walked in the square of Prague. Those in the world are wrong, you have been with him, but in the end, back to the place where you said good, the heroine in the love song has become her. The lyrics sang "In the square at dusk in Prague, you are checking out, I am cooking soup, this is the final answer to the story." The end of many stories gives us the most realistic answer, but it is not you, accompany him to the end. In the Old Town Square in Prague, Wang Likuns return is fascinating. This square has a history of more than 900 years. It is home to many Gothic (high-rise and thin-skinned styles) and Baroque buildings (the wall is very bumpy, richly decorated, and the surface is heavily used). You can admire the famous St. Vitus Cathedral and the Bell Bell. The striking Gothic twin towers of the Enthai Church have long been a distinctive landmark in the Old City, with a distinctive Gothic exterior and a rich Baroque interior. The biggest highlight of the old town hall is the ancient astronomical clock. When the mechanical puppets come out on time, they will attract a large number of tourists. At the top of the city hall is a tower, which overlooks the Old Town Square. The astronomical clock is designed according to the principle of the Earth Center of the year. The clock above is one year round, and the day below is a circle. Every day at 12 noon, twelve Jesus disciples appear from the side of the clock, six directions. Turn left and turn 6 to the right. As the rooster screams, the window closes and the clock sounds. It is ironic that it is said that in order to prevent the founder of the big clock from making another equally beautiful clock for others, he was stabbed with eyes.
