Prague is considered one of the most beautiful cities of the world. When you come to
Prague, you begin to understand what absolute harmony means. The capital of the Czech
Republic has many nicknames: Golden City, the City of a Thousand Spires, the Heart of Europe.
In the early 1990-s, it acquired the status of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, but this may not
be enough to render all the fascination this city evokes in your mind.
A walking tour of Prague with a licensed tourist guide reveals that Romanesque,
Renaissance, Baroque and Gothic buildings are whimsically neighboring with samples of
modernism and cubism.
When in Prague, you cannot afford missing any attraction. Your top priorities should
include Prague Castle, Old Town Square, Charles Bridge, and Petrin Hill. The whole Old Town
is surrounded by the fortress wall. The gate to the old part of Prague is the Gunpowder Tower.
Going through the Tower gate, you enter the legendary Prague Castle.
Pay a visit to the Prague Castle, the main historic relic of the city. It was built in the 9th
century and has always been inhabited by Czech kings or, more recently, Czech Presidents. The
most impressive part of the Castle is the Cathedral of St. Vitus, which served as the coronation
and burial place of monarchs. The Old Town Hall, located nearby, is known for its astronomical
clock with moving puppets and the calendar.
Your guided tour will definitely include the Municipal House, Petřín Observation Tower,
and the Troja Castle. The latter is an elegant Baroque palace and a summer residence. Enjoy a
modern building of unusual design, officially named as Dancing House, which is visited by
thousands of tourists.
