  • Charles Bridge

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Prague Things to Do

    I believe this is one of the "must see" tourist attractions in Prague, the Charles Bridge. Not quite like a circus but it is busy, crowded and touristy. Lots of souvenirs for sale and street performers trying their best to sell CD's and make their tips. The bridge tower is impressive. The views from the bridge are great! It crosses the Vltava...

    This 14th century building is the most famous at the Old Town Square. Its Gothic almost 70 meters high tower, built in 1364, is one of the most recognizable buildings in Prague.

    Prague Things to Do

    Wenceslas square is more an avenue than a square. Lined with shops and hotels, it is the centre of nightlife (if you're male be prepared to meet "quick friends" in the square). Behind king Wenceslas statue stands the monumental National Museum.

  • St Vitus's Cathedral

    Prague Things to Do

    The so called castle of Prague is a very interesting quarter, with historic buildings and squares, where this cathedral assumes the most relevant position. Showing several styles, denouncing the many adding and recuperation, in its more than 600 years, this cathedral deserves much more time than the quick look that I could have. That's one of the...

    The Castle is sprawling and the tours are several. My boyfriend had visited once before and was not desiring to do the tours again. So, we visited the castle in the evening and just walked around and took some photos. St. Vitus Cathedral is absolutely beautiful at night with the lighting upon it. It's medieval spires are impressive. We also...

    Prague Things to Do

    If you are in Prague Square, you will not miss seeing this magnificent church. Gothic in style. At night it is wonderfully lit up. Hard to find the entrance as it is set back from the restaurants that are in front of it. There is no charge for entrance but there is a donation box as you exit the church.

    Prague Things to Do

    Goltz-Kinsky Palace (Palac Goltz-Kinskych) is the most remarkable building on Old Town Square, and probably the most beautiful Rococo styled building in Prague, with its pink and white stucco facade. The palace was build for Count Jan Arnost Goltz in 1755-1756, according to the plans of Baroque architect Kilian Ignaz Dientzenhofer and completed by...

    There are three churches in Prague named "svetoho Mikulaše" and it, of course, could create a certain confusion. Two of them, one on Staromestke namesti and the other in Mala Strana the work of the same builders, Christoph and his son Kilian Ignaz Dientzenhofer from the famous family of Baroque architects. Malostranski St. Nicholas was built on the...

    If you wish to see the Changing of the Guard, I suggest you come a little early to find a good spot to watch. Quite a lot of people come to see this parade. I had noticed when looking through photo's, that the Guard's have different uniforms. Since 1990, the Guards have been provided with uniforms and wear any one of the three basic uniform...

  • Old Town

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Prague Things to Do

    Prague is one of the easiest cities to visit - the historical area is not big, the monuments come to your eyes in a regular cadence, and the general look of the old quarters is very appealing. Once a settlement surrounded by a moat, nothing remains from those medieval times. The actual place comes from the 12th century, when the square was a...

    A total contrast from its environs. I was walking getting lost near karlovo namesti until I reached the river front and accidentally this building caught my attention - no idea that it's an attraction nor it's name. It's indeed the building of one of Netherlands' big insurance company called Nationale-Nederlanden - also the name of the building...

    Located in the heart of the Josefov, Prague's old Jewish ghetto, this cemetery dates back to the 15th century (the earliest tombstone that can still be seen today dates back to 1439) and remained in use until the end of the 18th century. About 12,000 tombstones are crammed in the cemetery, with most showing the wear and tear of time, but it's...

    Prague Things to Do

    At first I was hesitant to go in due to the price,but...it was well worth the admission. I'm not sure if I just started to notice this, but it seems that now more and more European cities are opening their own version of a medieval torture museum. Maybe coming clean about their own pasts? Perhaps letting people realize just how lucky they are not...

    The main entrance to Strahov Monastery is through quite a nice Baroque gate, with statues atop, one of St. Norbert, the founder of the Premonstratensian order. The statue was made in 1742. I don't know what the old wall is in the second photo, only that it was close to the main entrance. Obviously it was something important for the tour group to be...

    I actually came across the Kampa Museum when trying to find a toilet. The Museum had toilets, but only for Museum patrons.

    I am talking about the unusual house/building names I found in Prague! I was nearly at the Vlata River when I came across these three attractive buildings!

    Shortly after ex-Beatles John Lennon was assassinated on December 8, 1980, an impromptu tribute to the musician was created on Kampa Island on a wall located near Grand Priory Square. This rather unique homage took on the form of numerous graffitti that often include lyrics from Lennon's songs as well as various drawings that convey Lennon's plea...

    Of the many churches in Prague, the Church of Sts Peter and Paul in Vysehrad is easily my favourite and tops my list of crowd-dodging options in Prague! I find it surprising how little is written about it - and indeed the whole of enchanting Vysehrad - which make it one of those less visited gems that so excite me, especially in a city that...

    Irish brides traditionally placed a statue of the Infant of Prague outside the door on the eve of their wedding to ensure good weather. My Irish grandmother had a particular devotion to the Infant, and I have a strong recollection of the statue standing in pride of place in her home, so my curiosity was piqued when I discovered that the Infant is...

    Prague Things to Do

    A clever solution has been found to solve the space limitations of the national theatre: absolute preservation of the beautiful old building, and the construction at its side of a new one, totally different. And, as a matter of fact, the ensemble does work. The dominating glass in the modern building turn it discrete, with reflections enhancing...

    For only 10 euros, it's good for a laugh. Takes about 20-30 minutes to peruse everything, sex toys from antiquity and some you have to see to believe. For the real thing I followed Tom Showalter's prague guide and found prague's red light district to be. . .let's say, fulfilling ;-) But for a laugh definitely don't miss this museum. Easy to find,...

The King looked very impressive sitting astride his steed accompanied by Czech patron saints. The King lived from 907-935, only because his brother had...

    I am a fan of Salvador Dali's work. In fact we own some of the Dante's Divine Comedy Canto prints and a signed Dali lithograph. So, visiting the exhibit was fantastic! I saw additional works by Dali I was not familiar with. I'm not sure this is a permanent exhibit but I believe it's been here for a long while. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The docents...

    The State Opera in Prague has the most dreadful location of any opera house I can think of. The front entrance is cut off from the city by a high-speed four-lane motorway called Wilsonova with no pedestrian crossing, just a dank narrow tunnel that looks like the perfect place for a mugging. At the back is another four-lane motorway called...

    Prague Things to Do

    I was frankly rather surprised that Prague, the center of one of the more conservative of the East Bloc countries, had a rather small museum about Communism. Realistically, it hasn't been all that long since Communism fell. Clearly, the Czechs don't want to dwell on the past, but at times you get the feeling that Communism is an episode of their...
