Prague is a golden city of a hundred towers, a gem on the Moldau and a young city with a long history.
The most famous of all bridges across the Moldau or the Vltava River, is the Charles Bridge that connects the old town of Stare Mesto with the city district of Malá Strana, below Castle Mountain.
Old Town Square is the name of a picturesque square in the centre of the old town surrounded by houses and churches, whose facades form a colorful blend of numerous architectural styles.
Prague Castle originated from a Slavic settlement in the 9th century A.D. and is the largest castle complex in the world. The front of the main building measures more than half a kilometre.
The Royal Palace is the present living quarters of the country’s president. Nearly one third of its inner courtyard belongs to St.Vitus Cathedral, a wonderful Gothic cathedral whose construction took several centuries.
A boat trip on the Vltava is an absolute must on any visit to Prague. Most of the excursion boats leave from Charles Bridge, close to the Kampa Peninsula. The journey travels beneath a few of the city’s 16 bridges and the view from the boat adds a totally different perspective to the sights experienced on the city’s streets.
Everyone who visits this city falls in love with it and cannot help but be totally fascinated by its special ambience. Prague is a thing of beauty in the very heart of Europe!
