About Prague

Prague is a city with warm temperate climate. Having been created during the Romanesque, Gothic and Renaissance periods, the city has a rich culture with mementos of the past. Prague was able to experience Bohemian invasion with various dynasties ruling the city until the 20th century when Czech became a liberal democratic republic. Prague managed to maintain their historic structures even after World War II. This is probably the reason why it is among the top 10 most visited cities in Europe. In addition, Prague’s historic center is also included in the list of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites.

Main Attractions

The Old Town Hall is one of the most visited sites in the city. Although the interiors could not be visited, many tourists still marvel at the site of the Calendarium and the Astronomical Clock found on the exterior of the building. One can go up the tower via an elevator to get a 360-degree view of the city.

The Church of St. Nicholas was built in the 17th century by the Jesuits. History reveals that the famous Baroque-style church took 100 years to complete. The Church of Our Lady Victorious proves to be another popular church in the area. Many visitors hope to see The Infant Jesus of Prague statue inside the church.

The Charles Bridge, another tourist attraction, has the statue of St. Jan Nepomuk. Many visitors believe that touching the statue’s plate is good luck although this is not Czech’s tradition. Once can also find a cross right in the middle of the bridge. This marks the spot where St. Jan Nepomuk was thrown into the water.

The Prague Castle, which is the largest in the world in terms of area, should never be missed. The castle ground stretches to about 18 acres with three courtyards and many buildings. The castle complex underwent some renovation but most of the buildings opened to the public afterward. The Prague Castle houses the Crown Jewels. It also has several historical documents and art relics on display.

Vinohrady, a residential complex in Prague, displays Neo-Gothic, Art Noveau, Neo-Renaissance and Pseudo Baroque architectures. Being in the residential area transports you back in time. Vinohrady used to be a large area of vineyards. Eventually, the vineyards were replaced with orchards, flower gardens, and residential buildings. The area has many restaurants and bars where visitors can enjoy dining minus the large influx of tourists.

Arranged Tours and Cruises

Day river cruises are quite common in Prague. Many travel companies have guided river cruise tours. Most day river cruises last around an hour or two. There are also evening river cruises, which are more romantic, perfectly befitting for couples. Evening river cruises lasts around three to four hours. They are often accompanied by dinner, wine and music. Longer cruises include a sightseeing tour to the New Town, Old Town, Lesser town and the Jewish Quarter. Here is a great tip, to get you a better view of the attractions, sit on the right side of the boat.
