For me Prague has it all. Here you really will find the perfect blend of historic influence and the modern feel of a cosmopolitan city. Did you know that Prague’s history dates back over a thousand years? It is a City that was sparred many bombings from WW2 and therefore is home to so truly wonderful buildings. Many say that the city rivals any other in Europe in terms of sheer beauty
Renaissance architecture, its many world-class museums and baroque style churches and bridges, combine this with the abundance of cobbled medieval streets which are a joy to discover in the daylight and then a meander down the riverside in the evening will ensure the most wonderful day.
Top ten things to do….
- The Charles Bridge – this bridge was commissioned in 1357 by Charles IV to replace an older bridge that had been washed away by floods. There are 30 statues mounted to the balustrade of Charles Bridge in Prague. They form two rows, one on each side.
