Thanks to its many freestone towers glowing golden in the sun, Prague got its beautiful nickname “Golden City”. When visiting the Czech’ capital located in Bohemia, make sure to cast a glance at this spectacular display from above, for example from Letná Park or Prague Castle. The latter is even listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the world’s largest ancient castle. On an area of almost 70,000 square meters, you can’t only marvel at the massive palaces and ecclesiastical buildings of various architectural styles, but also visit some art shops and small galleries.

From Prague Castle in the Little Quarter, one of the ways to the Old Town leads over the famous Charles Bridge, the city’s oldest bridge dating back to the 14th century. The bridge is lined with 30 giant stone sculptures including apostles, martyrs, and patron saints, but also sinners and infidels as well as lions, a deer, and a dog.
Prague’s Old Town is mainly concentrated around one major square with historical buildings like the Estates Theatre and the gothic Church of Our Lady before Týn. On the outside of the south wall of the Old Town Hall, you’ll find the very famous, oldest operating astronomical clock in the world, built in 1410. Next to the historical sites, there are many shops, restaurants, and cafés for a break from walking around the city.

Six spots for stellar views of PragueMore
I loved Prague for its architecture and history. When you walk around the streets you have always something amazing sourrounding you and you feel in another time. It's a mix of arts, ages and cultures. The people are very nice and the food delicious. There are a lot of things to learn about the city and very interesting museums and places of interests to visit. As cherry on the top, the river with its bridges give the city a romantic touch especially during the night.
Prague is one of my favorite city :) It was so amazing, romantic, and lovely! Also I tried lots of nice foods with beer at a low price
Prague is gorgeous. Everything is beautiful. It’s great! We enjoyed everything : the city itself and the museums.
Charles bridge is a beatiful place. You can see lots of turists there. There are statues of saints. If you visit Prague you must see the brigde
Prague isn’t known as the ‘City of a Hundred Spires’ for nothing. For a different perspective of this beautiful city, make sure to climb up as many of the dozens of towers in Prague. However with over 300-step spiral staircases these are not for the faint-hearted, but the stunning views are definitely worth it!
