Old Town Square
Prague has lively history of invasions, but even with such history the Old Town Square has remained relatively untouched since the 10th Century. The square itself is the perfect place to admire the wonderful architecture Prague has to offer and if that isn’t your thing then the various street performers, musicians and merchants that line the streets here will certainly keep you entertained.
Walking across the Charles Bridge is an absolute must for first time visitors of the city. So whoever said that “the best things in life are free” may well have been referring to the Charles Bridge in Prague. It is a 14th century bridge constructed to replace an older bridge that had been washed away by floods. It has a perfect story, amazing statues with background legends, making it the most enjoyable and memorable experiences in Prague.The bridge is protected by imposing three Gothic towers and is home to thirty Baroque-style statues and statuaries.The Charles Bridge is remarkable both day and night, and draws a large amount of tourists and merchants in all but the quietest hours of dark.
The breath-taking castle has traditionally been the seat of Czech rulers and is today the official residence of the president. Entry to the grounds of the castle are free although many buildings such as the St Vitus cathedral, Basillica of St George and Golden Lane can be visited with a combined entry ticket.Prague Castle is the largest ancient castle in the world, and is perhaps the most renown of all of the city’s many landmarks.
One of the most photogenic churches we have visited is St. Vitus Cathedral, inside the walls of the Prague Castle. A visit to this stunning church is something you can’t miss while visiting Prague.Although the cathedral looks many hundreds of years old, it was in fact completed in 1929.

While visiting the Old Town Square you should definitely set the visiting time so that you can watch the clock strike an hour.The clock itself is on the south face of the town hall and is the pride of Prague. The show at the top of the hour never fails to disappoint the many onlookers.
