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

Prague Astronomical Clock
4.6/5
526 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.

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.

Trip Moments

Fiorelady   
Two times to the Charles Bridge, they were all dumped by the same scenery: the Prague Castle and the red-top building under the clear sky and the Vltava River shine!

There is a saying in the folks that it is only after passing the Charles Bridge 9 times that it has been to Prague! In order to find the best position, I dont know how many times I went back and forth. I found that the scenery I saw on the Charles Bridge was really different!

There are 30 statues of the saints on the Charles Bridge, all from the masterpieces of the Baroque masters of the Czech Republic from the 17th to the 18th century. They are called European Open Baroque Statue Gallery by Europeans. The most famous is the 8th statue of St. John on the right side of the bridge. When passing through his statue, people will touch the relief of St. John on the pier and pray for themselves.

There is a bridge in the river, there is a story in the bridge, and the Charles Bridge is such a bridge full of stories...

1934, lying quietly in Vienna Kafka in the suburban sanatorium asked his friends to write down the last sentence of his life: "My life and inspiration are all from the great Charles Bridge."

The famous Czech thinker Michal Said: "Only by reading Kafka's work, you will understand the Jewish complex of the Charles Bridge. There is a strong nostalgia in the lines."

This is the origin of the Charles Bridge, and finally Ten years after Kafka died, he moved the Czechs. Today's Czechs say: "Milan Kundera has no country, and Kafka has not only the motherland but also the people."
