Impressions Of A Weekend In Prague, Czech Republic.

Within the last years, the popularity of Prague continuously rose and until today, it shows no sign of waning. With its glorious architecture and bustling cafes it’s a city for every season. So get ready and visit this metropolis in the heart of Europe and find a lovely & inexpensive hotel for your trip.

Places Of Interest In Prague:

Old Town Spare: The Old Town spare is a must for every visitor with astonishing architecture of the romanesque, baroque and gothic eras.

Petrin Hill: It’s 266 steps up Petrin Observation Tower but it’s sure worth it! The view of the city is absolutely thrilling but you definitely need to be free from giddiness because if the wind blows, the entire structure tends to move a little.

St. Vitus Cathedral: St. Vitus Cathedral in the walls of Prague Castle is unequivocal the highlight of this miniature city. Wandering around the streets of the largest castle in the world will provide you with many great photo opportunities.

Some Impressions Of My Weekend In Prague:
The Astronomical Clock in Prague, was built in the 15th century.  To fully appreciate the clock's intricate construction, watch the procession of the Twelve Apostles: on every full hour, a small trap door opens and Christ marches out ahead of his disciples, while the skeleton of death tolls the bell to a defiant statue of a Turk.

Strolling across Charles Bridge is everybody’s favourite Prague activity. If you want to experience the bridge at its most atmospheric try to visit it at dawn.

Golden Lane is a special atmosphere reigns in the little street inside the Prague Castle. It is lined with small picturesque houses, that look rather like doll's houses.
