"Standing on the Manesuv most, the oldest stone bridge in Europe—Charles Bridge is fully presented in front of you. The 16 piers are 520 meters long and 10 meters wide, like a gray-black dragon lying on the sparkling Volt. On the Tava River, the Red Star Cross Knights Řád křižovníků s červenou hvězdou monastery on the left and the Kafka Museum on the right are separated on both sides of the river bank. There is a waterway in the middle and a cruise ship shuttles between them. Swans and a leisurely fisherman in the shallow bay. , The print complements each other in the clear water and green mountains. Follow the tramway along the bluestone road all the way to the south, and soon arrive at the Crusader Square Kostel svateho Frantiska z Assisi, whose name is derived from the Red Star Cross Monastery on the north side of the square. Just like other towns in Europe, this is an ultra-mini small square, which does not have the grandeur of the country. In the center of the square stands a bronze statue of the greatest Czech, Charles Karlova IV (1316-1378). Charles IV, as King of Germany and Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire, was the builder and Charles of Prague during the most powerful period of the Czech Republic in the Middle Ages The founder of the university. The statue holding the golden edict was created in 1848 by the sculptor Ernst Hahne from Dresden to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the founding of Charles University. The four statues below represent the Fourth Academy of Theology, Philosophy, Law and Medicine at the time of the establishment. On the right hand side of the square is the Hussite church-St. Nicholas Church Kostel sv. Mikulase. It was first built in the 13th century and changed to Baroque in the 18th century. It was built by the famous Baroque architect Dinsenho at the time. Kilián Ignác Dienzenhofer was responsible for the design. The exterior of the church is very eye-catching. The snow-white building with a bronze roof resembles St. Martin’s Church in London. After nightfall, the lights are lit up. Once transformed, it has become one of the places where Prague citizens enjoy classical music."

"ČESKÉ BUDĚJOVICE is located in the center of the South Czech Basin, where the Vltava and Marche rivers converge. As the capital of the Czech South Bohemian Region, it has a population of about 100,000. In 1265, the then King of Bohemia, Přemysl Otakar II, ordered the construction of this charming small medieval town. It is the hometown of Budweiser Beer and a well-known beer town all over the world. "Budweiser" is the transliteration of Budweis in German. Budweis is a bit convoluted. The Chinese prefer to call him Budweis. Budejovice is a charming and peaceful medieval old town, filled with wonderful Baroque architecture. The town is not big, and more than 2 hours in the early morning is enough for you to stroll to every corner of this small town leisurely. There is no crowded people, no noisy hustle and bustle, but quiet. No skyscrapers can be seen here. Small groups of 4 to 6 floors are connected in rows around the square. The buildings are connected by the 18th century promenade. They maintain the original Baroque and Renaissance styles intact. It is coordinated and painted with rich colors, changeable and elegant, and strolling through it seems to be visiting an architectural exhibition. Like the pattern of other ancient towns in Europe, the center of the town is the square-Přemysl Otakar II Square. The square was planned in 1265. Nowadays, the square of 133m×137m square is Czech Republic The largest square is also one of the most beautiful squares. The square is surrounded by Baroque, Gothic, Renaissance and other different styles and colorful buildings. In the old days of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the square was renamed Kaiser Franz Joseph’s Square and Masalik Square. During World War II, it was changed to Adolf Hitler’s Square...The original name was restored after the drastic changes in the early 1990s. ."
