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”.

Charles Bridge
4.6/5
871 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

579 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
4.5/5
501 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.

432 Reviews
