As independent travellers we generally make out own way around attractions.

A fabulous cathedral in the heart of Prague castle. Great gothic architecture with reminders of the medieval days.The stained glass windows are adorable, the architecture and artifacts stunning and it is surprisingly not too busy, fabulous for great photo opportunities.

Went here with a tour guide but found he was to fast and in a hurry so went back the next day and took my time, it's a fantastic place and the views from the viewing platform are out of this world, the architecture is stunning and well worth the visit, take your time and you will really enjoy it

Climbed the 187 stairs to the viewing area of this belltower and it was certainly worth the effort. Amazing views of the city and surrounding areas as well as along the river, Charles Bridge etc. Fabulous.
