25 Oct The top 6 landmarks to visit in Prague
Prague is a great city to visit as it has lots of landmarks for you to see whilst you are there. As well as having beautiful streets and an amazing nightlife. Here are the top 7 landmarks that you must visit in Prague.
1. Charles Bridge
Charles Bridge is joins the west side where you can find the city’s castle to the east bank where the Old Town Square is. The bridge has 30 saintly statues placed along the side walls. Also on the bridge can be found street artist and jewellery and art sellers. During the day the bridge is normally packed with people visiting the landmark and trying to take pictures, and others trying to cross from one side of the river to another. However, the best time to visit the bridge is in the early morning as the sun rises. The bridge we be almost completely empty and you’re being able to have a relaxing stroll along and take some stunning photographs. At night the bridge lights up brightly and help make Prague so picturesque.
2. Prague Castle
Prague Castle sits high up, proudly overlooking the city below. The castle walls surround the grounds, which make a for a lovely walk during the day. Again the castle and its walls light up at night; and along with Charles Bridge really lighten Prague up during the night. The best place to get a photo of the Castle is definitely from the east side bank. And if you want to take it at night then make sure you are on the left hand side of Charles Bridge so that you can capture them both lit up brightly.
3. Old Town Square
Old Town Square is a historic square in the Old Town quarter of Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic. It is a central point for tourists and you can find lots of restaurants and bars in this area.
4. The Astronomical Clock
Voted as the 2nd most disappointing attraction amongst tourists but still watched by hundreds everyday. And a ‘show’ takes place every hour. The Astronomical Clock can be found in the Old Town Square.
5. The Dancing house
Have you ever seen a dancing house before? The design for this building consists of unusual shapes and different levelled windows. It is also known as the Fred and Ginger house after the famous dancing pair.
6. Petrin tower
Located at the top of Petrin Hill, the open tower gives you the best Birdseye view of the city of Prague below. If you’re scared of heights then the top of the tower may be a bit of a challenge for you, as it is very openly designed.
