    Lovely gothic architecture and an interesting elegant (but somewhat over-rated in my opinion) astronomical clock. The hourly "pageant" of the apostles is brief and it's a good job it's free. But the square has a lovely European ambiance. Remeniscent of Germany and Austria, and not unlike Spain if you forget the millions of cobbles! It's a very nice space. I didn't eat there as I was warned all the eateries and bars are seriously over-priced compared to backstreet ones, but the restaurant terraces did look inviting and good for people-watching; and plenty of horse-drawn carriages too.

    Was a lot of hype for the Chico bridge. It was good at points as a man singing look like Harold Bishop. However, do not be fooled. He is not Harold Bishop. Repeat, he is not Harold Bishop!!

    Walking over the magnificent Charles Bridge which connects the Old Town to Lesser Town is something I love doing on any trip to Prague I take,also known as Mala Strana ,it's probably the oldest part of this fantastic Bohemian city .
    The architecture in this beautiful district is jaw dropping,period buildings,ancient churches ,twisting cobblestoned streets packed with amazing pubs,bars and restaurants ,it's a great area to explore and get lost in ,I've been coming to Prague for close to 30 years and I still find new things to check out ,it's a wonderful,vibrant district to visit and most certainly well worth checking out if you're planning a trip to Prague.

    Pretty walk around the park. Great views and I bet it’s spectacular in summer. Easy to reach by public transport. Play park for kids. Few cafes but you have to pay to use toilets

    We explored the Old Town Hall through a guided visit and were pleasantly surprised by all the secrets we uncovered and that remain hidden for most visitors of Prague. The tour takes you underground where a whole new world opens! It also allows you to see the backside of the Apostles that appear on the hour above the Astronomical Clock. A visit of the Tower is well worth is for the great views!

    Pretty cool looking status in Praha. The color, material and shapes it takes. The movement occurs the first 15 minutes of every hour

    This place must be absolutely stunning in the late spring and early summer. It’s very pretty even just now, with most of the trees and shrubs still bare.

    The park is incredibly popular with all age groups: families, couples, and solos. Also, a lot of doggies (on leashes, of course) and joggers.

    There are several viewpoints that overlook the Vltava River and dozens of benches elsewhere on which to sit and soak up the atmosphere.

    Notable features in the park include:

    1. Hanavský Pavilion - originally built as the representative pavilion of the Komárov Ironworks for the Prague Jubilee Exhibition in 1891; now, it’s a pricey restaurant with stunning views of Prague’s bridges.

    2. The Prague Metronome - in Letná Park since 1991, where a monstrous Stalin monument used to be; this sculpture represents the relentless passage of time and is a cautionary reminder of times past.

    The major irritants are the skateboarders, the empty booze bottles (broken), and the ugly graffiti. But … the park is big enough to escape those irritants.

    I like the way how all parks are served in Prague. Everything clean and neat, short and wet grass, lots of personal caring around. I felt like everything is alive around me. Good atmosphere

    Walking down Karmeliska you pass one of the most beautiful churches in Prague namely Kostel Panny Marie Vitezne A Prazske Jezulatko ,aka The Monastery Of Jesus Of Prague or alternatively Church Of Our Lady Victorious .
    The church was constructed between 1611-1613 ,a great example of Baroque architecture at it finest ,passing the church on my latest visit I never ventured in but I have been inside before and the interior is stunning,the exterior is beautiful,so photogenic,makes for great photographic opportunities ,it's a wonderful church to view if you're walking down Karmeliska.

    Im not a big fan of history, I don’t really think that there’s something special in this particular tower, but the thing I could tell right now, that nearest places are beautiful. There’s really alot places and good views around. Everything’s clean and neat

    Old Town Square is without a shadow of a doubt the number one tourist destination in Prague and dominating this square is Church Of Our Lady Before Tyn .
    Dating back to the 14th century, its one of the most beautiful examples of Gothic style architecture that you're ever likely to view ,its two spires soaring 80 metres into the sky look amazing,this church has been the main place of worship in this part of Prague for centuries, its one of the landmark features of the Old Town, viewed of a day its magnificent, at night its stunning as is the whole of Staromestske Namesti ( Old Town Square) ,if you're planning a trip to Prague this is a must go destination and a must see Church building.

    Even though this place is not far from Prague’s main square and the best sites, most tourists seem to ignore it and head to nearby Dancing house!

    According to ancient legends, Vyšehrad is the oldest seat of Czech princes; in fact, the local settlement was established in the mid-10th century.

    I took a private tour to the Casemates & Gorlice, where I was surprised when the tour guide informed me that this place appeared in Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol as Moscow’s Kremlin’s underground tunnels!!!

    The Cathedral of St. Peter & Paul as well as the Cemetary were stunning!

    This place is a must-visit when in Prague.

    You pass it on the way from the airport and can be reached by tram or bus from the centre. Several walking trails, and swimming in the park. Walk through forests on paths.13km for the longest trail. Lots of benches and huts along the way. Great rural area really close to the centre
