Well, that is true , but also Prague has the fantastic atmosphere. And if you have not already visited this city combing the old and modern styles, book a ticket now.
Old Town Square is definitely a place from which every tourist should begin the trip in this fantastic city. There are located the most famous churches belonging to various architectural styles (Church of Mother of God before Týn and St. Nicholas Church). Moreover, this place is well-known for its shops, restaurants, street food and musicians.
In addition, from the square you can observe the third-oldest Astronomical Clock in the world. When it strikes the hour, the procession of the Twelve Apostles sets in motion.
Notably, the Old Town Hall Tower is famous not only for its Clock, but also for the viewing platform, which tourists can reach with the help of elevator or by foot.
Another medieval sightseeing, which attracts attention, is the Charles Bridge. Despite the fact that it was built in the 15th century, most sculptures were erected between 1683 and 1714. Since the 20th century they have been systematically replaced by replicas. However, all these changes have not taken away the charm of the bridge. And nowadays tourists can see the Lamplighter, slowly turning on the lights first on one and then on the other side of the bridge and remembering people about old times.Such historical landmark as Prague Castle is also one of the most popular tourist attraction with an area of almost 70,000 m². On its territory tourists can visit Old Royal Palace, St. Vitus Cathedral and its treasury, St. George’s Basilica and Rosenberg Palace. With the 3 types of tickets, you can individually choose which buildings to entry.
There are also another places, which are less popular among tourist, but this fact does not lessen their historical meaning. Best example of this is Vyšehrad, which was built as a fort in the 10th century. There is located Basilica of St. Peter and St. Paul, Oldest Rotunda of St. Martin and Cemetery. And as Vyšehrad has beautiful view of the city, many go on a picnic there.
Moreover, the ideal place for walking will be Kampa Island. There you can take photos of swans and even nutrias. For passionate fans of nature we highly recommended to visit Prague Zoo and Botanical Garden.
Apart from sights, the capital of the Czech Republic is a well-know for its tasty traditional food. Here tourists should definitely try trdelník, goulash soup in bred, knedlíky and many other courses. But all these dishes would be only a perfect addition to your unforgettable time in this magical city.
